New Swatches

I know they are all neutrals, but they’re my favorite colors, and I think they’re lovely.  Very excited about these, especially the moires.

Photos from my first muslin critique last week.  Too much ease in the sleeve cap of the trench, but the shorts were perfect.  Minor changes to the trench flaps for a better lay.

This is the first print test of Colin’s photographs onto linen!  I am so excited.  These are pre rinse, so they may change a bit once I wash them.  Too bad this stuff is $20/yd to print… I want to make designs out of all his work now!  Buffalo on a mini skirt?  Yesss.

I love her!  Too big though.

Thank You, Mood!

My swatches came in!  They are just what I was hoping for, and I finally have the fabrics I want for my collection!  I’ve been through so many swatch orders out of my own pocket for this project, so I’m thrilled to have found just what I was looking for.  Sketches soon!

 

Sorting and color matching.

This is what I ended up with for spring and winter. What do you think? These will probably get narrowed down once I know exactly what I'm making.

Portfolio Update.

New photos of projects from college!  I had to take them myself so they’re pretty blurry, but they’ll be ok for now.
