Guess who would be posting here today as part of of our Special Saturday series all through August! Today being last Saturday of the month, i wanted this Special Sa
turday series to have a grand finale! Ironically it has ended up bit boring! why boring! coz for those who had come to have a look at post written by someone else but me, i have some news, the person who was scheduled to post today unfortunately was unable to send me her post ! (i know you are disappointed, i am disappointed as you are, if not more!), since i had just a day's time i did not want to pressurise my other bloggy friends into making a guest post in a hurry, then it will not solve the purpose of making it special! So it would have to be me to make up for today's Absence of Special Guest!
I take this opportunity to let you have a sneak peak of what's in store for this September, we will try to think out of the box! innovate new styles, knock-off those killer styles off the runway, magazine spreads etc.,
References i would be using are as follows
- Pattern Making for Fashion Design by Helen Armstrong
- Metric Pattern Cutting for owmen's wear by Aldrich
- Fabric and Flat pattern cutting by Aldrich
- Couture Sewing Techniques by Claudia Shaefeer
- The Art of Manipulating Fabric by Wolff
Also thought of sharing 2 new styles one legitimate skirt, another a 'bifurgate' being a distant relative of skirt family! here they are
Circle skirt made to into a bustle with ! i loved this style ever since i saw it in some fashion magazine (don't recollect when and where!) and as i was thinking of new styles to attempt for Sew Skirt September, this was the one that came to my mind!
Culottes (also known as Divided Skirts) are modeset and comfy option for those who would love to wear skirts and still be able to ride their bikes! Made the below (first for self, have made culottes before for my DD, she somehow do not like they as much as she likes her 'proper'skirts !) I loved wearing them! it took me 1.5 hours in all to make them (including pattern drafting!). So are you game for this? Join in 'Sew Skirt September'; Spread the word!
