It would seem like I have not been doing any sewing since May, but this is not true. I have been working on a couple secret projects that are not ready to be revealed yet. I really can’t wait to reveal them to you.
Before I started working on my current secret project, I had started working on By Hand London’s Anna Dress. I am already in love with this dress, my dress, even though I have only made a muslin of the bodice. It’s the fabric that will in the end make this dress. Of course, I have to do research on how to use this fabric. Then, I will need to find a slip to wear under it. Who knew that full slips are hard to find and expensive?
A little while ago, I purchased a book called Fashionary. Let me tell you I love this book. I have an official place to sketch out my ideas and I don’t have to worry about drawing the human body. This is good, because I actually really need to get back into drawing and right now sketching out clothing is a great way for me to do that. I have some jackets, dresses and tops designed so far. I really wish I could share the drawings with everyone, but I have to wait until actually make up the garment. I am itching to share. I have in fact started drafting a pattern for one of the tops just before the Anna Dress appeared on my cutting table. I think I can actually make a mock-up when I get back to it.
In other news, I will be heading back to Philadelphia after 5+ years of being away, while I am on the East Coast, I will be spending half my time in NYC. So, if anyone is interested in meeting up, let me know. There are some awesome bloggers that are a must see, along with Mood. The last time I was at Mood, I did a quick walk around before I walked out. Too much fabric, my head was gonna exploded. This time I hope to go with life support. So yeah, let me know.
Hopefully, my next post will be a finished garment, until then. Ciao
