In our final installment of the Variation Designer series, meet Yana Gorbulsky (aka supayana) from Montreal. Yana, who describes herself as vintage, girly, and casual, created a variation project based on our Blouse Pattern.

Yana, a self-taught seamstress, sews in a 3,200-square-foot studio with two designers, a photographer, and a seller of vintage goods. For her variation design, she changed up the look by eliminating the princess seams on the blouse. The end result was a flattering sweetheart neckline with a little color blocking mixed in. “I wanted the blouse to have a slightly vintage feel,” says Yana.

Regarding the fashion scene in Montreal, here’s what Yana had to report: “This city is rich in cheap vintage, so lots of people here wear amazing vintage clothing. Also, this city has a lot of artists, so people have very individual and eclectic style, which I love.” And Yana, we love your style, too!
