Jersey, cotton and tweed

As busy as I have been for the last couple of weeks, I still managed to make some of the designs I’ve sketched up during my down time. While most of my school friends are buying  up a frenzy trying to stock up on things to wear [since we don't have our trusty old school uniform anymore] I’ve been frantically brain storming, sketching and making versatile, simple garments to wear. Mum bought loads of cute printed modal and jersey while overseas, it’s been a bit of challenge since there’s so much stretch and drape to account but I managed!

PS. I was lucky enough to be featured on page four of the The Age last sunday. It was an amazing experience and I was so surprised(and flattered) it took up half a page! You can read the story here.  PPS.I kept on typing ‘tweet’ instead of ‘tweed’- addicted much?!

My red collection

4 Weeks and taaadaaaa! Finally it’s done! So here are the sketch again, everything’s pretty much the same except for the bow on the cape and the peplum.

These first ones are made out of cotton sateen:

Side pleat pencil skirt with rosettes


Circle skirt with black binding

Square neck, pleated dress

Gathered skirt with bow

The following are made from wool

Side peplum skirt

Pleated cape with bow

And here’s an out take that I want to include!

Depending on the feedback I think I might even make some more and sell some of these!


Side plait and the tights were plaid

One hectic week down, one more to go! This week I’ve done 2 math exams, had a run in with tonsillitis, suffered from severe Gossip Girl withdraws and wrapped it all up some down time with Lisa on friday night (in uniform, so it was pretty bland). Next week I’ve got one art folio due in, an English Oral, Vis Comm project, Fashion history paper and a french written SAC! Luckily I’ve got a week off the week after, 2 more weeks of school and then it’s the holidays! YAYYYY!

Dress: My own design
Jacket: Huckabees
Tights: China
Shoes: Sogui eli giorgia
Clutch: Vintage
Bracelet: My own design
Chain belt: My own design

Update on the red collection: Everything is done except for the peplum, I’m not totally sure if I want to add another skirt to the collection after it, I’ve still got some really lovely red wool left over from the cape.


More jersey magic and some OTT love!

With the left over metre of my new favourite fabric, black jersey I decided to make a form fitted skirt, inspired by the (possibly Herve Leger) one worn by Lara Stone in Brazil. Well to put it frankly; not really, I just saw it and thought “Hey, I need a nice plain black skirt, has to be form fitting but also has to hide my unfortunate saddle bags, ah! Side peplums! Double side peplums!”

I’m not usually a bra flasher but I recently got myself some fabulous Pleasure State Couture lingerie and it’s so gorgeous and ornate I just couldn’t resist!
