I had some leftovers from the jacket I made,
and I really need a BIG pencil case for all the stuff I have to bring to school everyday – so I decided to make one!
(Although I should study for my art history exam.. but this was way more fun!)
- Zipper closure
- Pocket on the inside
- Outer strap(?) for closure
It was just a small project that I did really fast, but I like it a lot!!
Maybe it’s too pretty to be a pencil case, so we’ll see if it’ll end up as a clutch instead.
Garment 2 of 10: Boxy, stiff, short jacket
- Crocodile-texture (love!)
- No closure. Was going to have a zipper, but I couldn’t find any that I liked.. So that solved it – no zipper.
But who closes their leather jacket anyway? I never hah.
Here’s a picture where you can see the texture – the other pics turned out really bad! But you get the feel of it.
Paired up with this jacket, I will make a highwaisted pencil skirt and I’m thinking a simple top underneath in the same crocodile fabric.
Is it interesting for you guys if I post things that I do at school (other than the garments I’ve sewn)? Or is it boring?
We’ll try it once in a while! I bet some of you read my blog because you’re curios about Parsons, or about going to a fashion school in general :)
But, hey I’ll do an outfit post soon.
You’ve seen these sketches before, but yeah, this is a project we started on a while ago in our visual communication, digital class. In these classes we learn basically everything you need to know about illustrator and photoshop. Our projects are about making presentations like this, and then we just take it from there. I love playing around in photoshop so I like this class a lot!
For the project shown, the theme was to make prints: plaids, stripes, and a motif for our collection. I’m not a big fan of prints so eh, they’re not all that. But it’s more about the overall layout etc. so in that case I’m satisfied!
Garment 1 of 10 for my collection.
I finished this last night – and I am so satisfied with it!
I want to wear it all day, everyday.
- 100 % Virgin wool (same as the skirt, but the skirt is not in the collection! that was a school assignment)
- The vests’ hem ends just above the knee
- It has super high slits (my thoughts: so you can stick your hand into your trouser-pockets underneath = nice and also somewhat practical)
- The closure is a huge square that is attached with snap buttons
I love it from the side. And man, I just love high splits and how they move when you walk.
Thanks for looking ;)
To complete the outfit I will make white wide pants that are kinda similar to the ones I’m wearing – in silk or washed silk.
I was also planning to make a superbasic silktop – but as I was trying it on, I actually like it a lot with nothing underneath! Agree?
I’m gonna ask my mentor if I’m allowed to skip the top, and make my model show some skin.
Happy thanksgiving!! Lots of love.
This is my latest project.
White (Light grey)
100% virgin wool
Stiff squared front
Vent in the back
I’ll show you detail photos of it later!
For this assignment we could sew whichever skirt we wanted from our own designs.
This is so me. Super simple, but I love the square stiff front. Will look awesome with my white turtleneck!
..Now, for thanksgiving break/this whole week, my sewing machine will be my bestfriend. I’m gonna start on my collection for the fusion show!!
