2017 Menswear

Hey peeps, happy 2017 to all.                                                                                                                 how has everyone been doing? …. I’ve been putting forth such a strong effort to being committed to my goal and “staying in action” of accomplishing goals.

I wanted to tackle menswear for the longest…. So I did just that!

slaving away on creating the pattern pieces

I made my Menswear debut in a tailored single breasted blazer with double welt pockets, breast pocket, two piece sleeves, lining, complete with lapel and collar.15967176_10101621145693227_276405023_o15942883_10101621066736457_926944746_o15942913_10101621067804317_445071363_o15942983_10101621067440047_355666747_o

My first Menswear piece Pattern and sewing all done by me 😊                                                   I couldn’t be any happier or more proud of my hard work and dedication.

Thanks for stopping by, Peace & Love

Drape Success 🙌🎉😊😄

I don’t usually post my progress with Draping because its so tedious & its a lot to try to explain over a typed text…… But some times when you do exceptionally well & surprise yourself, you just have to tell someone. Well all you someone’s I have great news🎉🙌😊.

We were working on draping a blazer, & life has left me feeling a bit overwhelmed these past weeks. But I stuck it out {& so glad i did.} Gaining more motivation after each stage of the drape.

This was right after I created the lapel, but right before all the difficulty of the collar set in.

I would have to say the part I found the most challenging was the collar.

There’s a fashion show coming up next month, thinking about constructing this blazer, or one similar. Because I’m so excited about the whole thing. I really want to see how it would like fully done & on a model.
