This month a How-To I created for Foam magazine hit the stands. I was asked to create a fun, eco-friendly or upcycled project for the summer so I used the Burdastyle Alison vintage bathing suit pattern and old t-shirts to create (3) multi-colored vintage bathing suits. Why 3 you ask? Because the first time around the camera I was using was not set to a high enough resolution for the images to go to print! I had to do it all over again…why there is still an extra one I just cannot recall… “Stand out on the sand in a homemade (but still so chic) bathing suit. Project Runway alum Alison Kelly shows us how it’s done. ”>Click here for your pattern, and follow the direction in this month’s Foam Magazine to make your own!"
The rest of this week I am prepping for my fitting next Tuesday at Cosmo magazine and praying all of my looks will look amazing. Also, I am looking into bamboo and other eco-friendly textiles for the next Dahl & Dane collection, does anyone have any advice?
Has anyone heard of DOSSIER JOURNAL? My friend blogs for them and the content is quite interesting. These stories caught my eye:
