A Second Lookbook
Apparently the original Lookbook thread is lost to the sands of time, so I'm starting anew!



I mentioned this top in this thread and kept meaning to post a picture and kept forgetting. Anyway, here it is,



This was my latest...the one that the fabric made me think of Janis Joplin.

So, I've posted my recent work...let's see what other creative folks have produced recently! Sketches, garments, paintings, photos; it is time to brag it up a little bit!

Bumping!

This is my current project...I am testing out a bluejeans pattern that I intend to make up in corduroy for winter use. They are a slim-cut straight-leg style, about 2" below the natural waistline.







The topstitching is silver-and-black thread, but the flash made the silver show up WAY more than it does in real life. They are actually much more subtle than these pictures would have you believe. There is a waistband yet to come, and belt loops, topstitching on the sides of the legs (I basted the inseams so I could try them on) and hemming, of course.

When I make up the corduroys, one pair will be a strong, saturated pumpking orange, one pair is a cocoa-brown, and the other pair is striped, in olive, two shades of brown, black, cream, and orange. All of my ideal wardrobe colors! I expect to get a LOT of wear out of that pair.

My husband sews his own buttons on. He doesn't trust me with a needle and thread so I admire your ability to put whole pieces of material together and come out with something so creative.

Wyatt--what do you want made?

Model-Mom--I taught myself how to do this over a long stretch of years. My first home-made garments told on themselves very, very badly indeed!

Ended up not going to class. So here they are now.

My mum, she thinks she looks too tired.



Her chin, which I like.



An in-class portrait of another student. They were really big, I couldn't fit the whole thing into the picture.



Part of another of them. I didn't really like this or the others that much.
Oh, and that white bit is paper that got stuck...

ModelMom,

My model mom, taught me how to sew on my btns of shirts when I was a 6 yrs old. I was upset at first then realized i could do something that not a lot of kids could do. Maybe that was my first
experience with garments and appreciating them somehow. I am actually in the middle of shortening a clients pants ( I really should finsh and get off TFS).

I recently did some denim sketches for my portfolio on line and I will share them with you guys.
It was just trying to play with seams mostly on two of these, the other started with a classic MC jacket. Hope you guys like them.
