I promise I haven’t abandoned the blog! I realize it’s been a while since I last posted, but several things happened:
1) my birthday was last Sunday
2) I suddenly got bombarded with commission requests
3) I’m in the middle of like 3 different, long-term projects, so there are no pretty, posed pictures to be taken
4) BUSINESS VENTURE. I’m going to be starting a business! I’m insanely busy right now with research and figuring out the start-up costs and timeline…I’ll post news as it’s available.
It’s interesting how blogging is harder to keep up with when, technically speaking, you have more going on in your life that is blog-worthy…
Anyway, I have to run off to work, but I wanted to post the update so you all wouldn’t lose faith in me 😀
Happy Friday! Here’s the last of the dresses I made over the summer (that are worth photographing, anyway…tried quite a few patterns that didn’t pan out, derp).
This dress is such a mashup of patterns and self-drafting that I can’t really attribute it to any one pattern. It was designed to showcase the fabric, which honestly is one of my favorite conversational prints from the fabric store I work at. It’s covered in moths and fireflies, and the colorway is a combination of vintage and rustic, using sage green, rust, terracotta, marigold, and cream.
There isn’t much to say about the construction of this dress, other than that it was gratifying, and that the dress is comfortable, and that I probably won’t reproduce it. I’m starting to move away from conversation prints and toward structural/architectural pieces, where loud prints like this one get in the way of showcasing the beauty of the construction and silhouette. These projects are all still in the works, though, so posts will be upcoming! Anyway, here’s a photoshoot, because I felt like it, and this is my blog, and I can subject you to half a dozen pictures of myself if I want to! 😀
Stay tuned for my fall makes! Jackets, blazers, coats, yum yum yum!
