Hi fashion sewers!
Are you a member of the American Sewing Guild? My article was recently published in the summer 2017 issue of Notions, a publication of the organization. It’s a benefit for members only. The theme of the article visits busting out your scraps for creating real, wearable fashion (no unwearable fashion, please). In the article I list some processes I recommend for making such a garment, plus inspiration from the fashion industry. Thanks to the Notions team (editor Anne Marie Soto who reached out to me, artist Claudia Lynch and publisher Betty Watts) for making my words look good.
Well, here I am, actually wearing my project (you saw this in last week’s post). Below it is the inspiration image of a silk dress by Coach1941, courtesy of In Style magazine, priced at $795. Ok, so my tunic is rayon and polyester, and I am not wearing the black choker. Did I capture the essence of the Coach1941 piece?
This is a very short post, while I am actually sewing another wearable thing . This time I’m busting my fabric stash, not scraps. The reveal is forthcoming as soon as it’s done.
Have a safe, happy summer! Sew your heart out….
