DIY or Die

I want to see some upcycled, recycled and deconstructed projects that don’t look like craft projects.

I am tired of pom pom’s, elastic, weird sequins and just things that look “homemade”. Ill fitting, weird shapes…etc.

Its one thing to make things at home and another to have your things look homemade.

Who can show me the way? I want to see some amazing and inspiring before and afters!

Red Lace Chronicles…..cont.

I feel like I’m never going to be done with this dress. The lace has to be cut and sewn like an applique…did I mention it has to be done by hand???

FML.

I love my job. Love my clients. Love my life.

But…

This shit cray.

I’ve been working on it all day, fixing errors, pinning, fitting, repinning and now stitching.

In the end its going to be so beautiful!

P.s. I’m on IG if you want to see updated videos of the process AND other things I’m up to!

Sorry for the delay in writing, I will fill you in later. like has been… well to put it lightly… FUCKING CRAZY.. and it’s it’s not slowing down any time soon. 

 

However, I have some great news. I have a few upcoming shows and I would love to see you all out there if possible.

Second is July 26th – http://www.HoustonShootWeek.com – where I will be featuring an all black and white lingerie line. Oh, and by the way… this is where you come into play. 

 

I have ZERO funds to make this happen, so I have set up a GoFundMe page where you can support me and my line in exchange for LINGERIE! Yaya.. I think that is a pretty sweet deal. 

 

But for the time being I figured I would just show you where my inspiration is headed.. so that you can be inspired too! Yippie!!

Vintage Blue and Pink Floral Dress

 

 

I love love LOVE this dress, and if I had a choice i’d keep it for myself, but I need to let this dress go to a new home.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This pattern is one that I hand drafted myself. It is a design that I came up with on my own, and one that I am most proud of. The fabric it old than most people I know. It was printed in 1979 and is no longer available for purchase… ANYWHERE.

Without knowing this fun fact, I turned what could have been an really expensive fabric, into a moderately expensive, handmade, eco friendly summer dress. This fabric was donated to me by an interior designer in the local San Francisco Bay Area. This fabric would have ended up in a landfill, but instead it has been turning into a very cute and flirty summer dress. It features a plunging neckline, low/no back, circle skirt, pockets, and the knowledge that it is eco friendly.

This dress should be should for $220, just because of the time spent sewing and the exclusivity of the fabric alone. Alas, I am needing to clean out my closet of old items, in order to make way for new ones. This means that this dress IS ON SALE!!

YAYA!

I am selling int for $160, down from $220 and a steal of a deal.

I can promise you that you will FOREVER be the only person in the work who has this dress.
