three things: plants

The only thing I don’t like about our loft is that the amount of outdoor space for growing things is pretty limited. I’m planning to remedy that by sprucing up our balcony this summer.

schoolwork

It’s been a busy few weeks. I turned in three major projects all due on the same day.

One of them was for my design class. It was a collection of 12 looks for a fall/winter collection. The inspiration for it came from black and white photos and surrealist mountain landscapes. I wanted to dress a modern day adventurer. Below are my presentation pages: moodboard, fabric board, look pages, and development sketches.

A cappuccino and croissant on a rare rainy day with a good friend. A perfect break.

a working weekend

It’s been a busy weekend of of schoolwork: drawing, making digital flats, sewing, and pattern fixing. Busy!

In order to drape a sleeve I usually rest the dressform’s arm on my head so I have a better angle of the where the sleeve meets the body of the garment. Joel thought it was pretty funny and took a few photos of me working. It does look pretty funny.
