I’ve been storing up a bit of a backlog of fabulous student work recently. The photos are no good just sitting on my computer, you need to admire and be inspired!
Here they are:
Remember the customising project on turning old jeans into a skirt that I did for Sewing World magazine (have a look here if you missed it)? I have a few students working on theirs at classes and here are the first two to finish. Assuntina and Karen looking fab and very pleased with themselves! I don’t think any two skirts make like this would turn out the same, but they do all result in a very wearable new garment from something that would have gone to the charity shop or the bin!
And what a fine collection here! Starting from the top from left to right we have: Joy in her gorgeous pink wool skirt, Salva in her beautiful Prada-esque dress that she persevered with and was rewarded with a new dress that got all her work colleagues asking where it was from, Orsi in her black jersey version of my drapey cardi, Tasha in her first skirt, Mary in her lined a-line skirt and vest, Hollie in her spotty version of the same dress, Salva again in her version of my drapey cardi and last but not least, Karen in I think possibly her third version of my drapey cardi!
If you’re feeling inspired you can make your own version of Mary’s vest and Hollie’s dress with my Straight Neck Vest & Dress MIY Collection sewing pattern or your version of Salva, Orisi and Karen’s MIY Collection Drapey Cardi. Patterns are available to buy online from my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/miycollection
