Design Stages | DIY Black & White Dress

Leave a Comment
Below, I have images of the stages it took to design and make the dress I wore in yesterday's post, Black x White
The drawing was a very quick sketch I did with my finger on my iPad, using the Notes app. 
As I have mentioned before, I make my clothes freehand (without a pattern) so these sketches are extremely helpful for me to get an idea of what I want to make and therefore, making the process much quicker. 
It's made from a thick scuba and white faux leather fabric.

I made sure that the white faux leather was constructed to fit around the curves of my body. I also used it to create a pocket...

This is one of the first outfits I made after creating the mood boards I mentioned in yesterday's post, Style Influences. This dress marked the beginning of me creating my own collection of ready to wear clothes to reflect my personal style. 

I've always loved black and white with a touch of gold... and by the way, how epic are these Jeffery Campbell boots?!!

In my previous post where I showed my DIY Scuba Sweater Dress, I mentioned the idea process before making it. I spoke about how it all started with a mood board which I speak about in detail in my post, How To Develop Your Own Personal Style. At the end of the post, I edited down all the images, to created one complete mood board of all the silhouettes and styles I really liked. Which would inspire a new collection of clothes I intended to make. However, I later remembered that I hadn’t not included the other mood boards it took to really pinpoint and hone in my desired fashion style… I thought I’d share them with you here to document how I got to where I am right now.

DIY Chokers

Leave a Comment
I have been wearing chokers for as long as I can remember because I find them really flattering on my short, small neck and I just love the way they look. I also love the versatility in a choker, you can always find one to suit each person no matter what your style. 

A few months ago, I created a collection of chokers to sell in my shop. Each unique design is custom made. I wanted to create a range to reflect my own personal style and I’m so pleased with the outcome. Many of my pieces have since sold out which is so cool!

Check out my lookbook video below to see the full range and click here to shop the collection.

DIY Thigh High Tutorial

Leave a Comment
A few months ago, I uploaded a video tutorial to my youtube channel; Explaining in detail how I create my DIY thigh highs. I also included a mini lookbook of ideas. 

I use a sewing machine for almost every fashion DIY task that I tackle.  However, there are other alternative methods... you just need to find which best suit you. 
Whatever your preference, I hope this helps spark some ideas for own creative DIY endevours!

Design Stages | Red DIY Jumpsuit

Leave a Comment
In my previous post, Red I showed some photos of me wearing a red jumpsuit I made.
 Click here to see.
They actually started out as a simple pair of flared trousers this was pretty exciting for me because these were the first pair of trousers I'd ever madeI don't use patterns when I make clothes, its all done freehand. This was a pretty successful first attempt because they fit me really well. 
After playing with the remaining pieces of fabric, I decided to add the top section to turn them into a one piece. 
As you can see in the photo, I had planned to make the top part slightly box-y and abstract but I later decided to simplify with a smoother silhouette.

I have a few things I'm planning to make so I'll be sure to add photos of the design process along with my final images.
