New Design Projects

003 002 001

I thought I'd share a few of my recent design projects with you. Please excuse the blurry pics. They were taken rather hastily and it wasn't the ideal situation to mess around with my camera while balancing one leg on the bed side table and the other in mid-air. Not so graceful.

01 / self made necklace using vintage materials

Currently one of my favourites. It consists of double lengths of cross-over chain and a chunky double linked chain, threaded with a textured silky ribbon. The two colours look really luxurious together and I'm really loving semi-chunky long necklaces at the moment.

02 / self made full length dress

I spent so much time making this dress and one day I just stopped. The next time I have a day off I'm getting my sewing machine out and finally finishing it! I imagine the dress looks really plain at the moment but hopefully I can show you again when it is complete. It has a few interesting design details, such as multiple ways to cinch sections of the waist and create different drape effects.

03 / dress fabric

Totally unplanned, but I somehow talked myself into purchasing an entire roll of dress fabric on my last visit to the fabric shop. It has the most beautiful drape and I couldn't bear the thought that it wouldn't be there on my next visit.

I have a habit of "accidentally" buying things too, and I love it.
