    Hi, Central Saint Martins is close to my heart. My eldest son studied Graphic Art there. He is a musician (Tom Vek) but still works in design.

    You are so privileged to study there. Well done.

    I know from experience that Fashion Degree courses never teach you how to sew! Pass around my website

    You will be thanked for it.

      Thanks Angela, you must be very proud of your son! Thanks it came as a shock I was the first person to ever get in from my school, and my teachers said I never do it, nice to prove them wrong! Hahaha I;ve heard that, i will do, thanks!

    Hello! Wow, Your creations are stunning! I´m also a fan of Vivienne W. I remember there was once a Vogue vest pattern by her, I was a couple of years late for it! :( Keep up the good work!

    I just wanted to say, I really think you deserve higher ratings than the ones you seem to get here! Sadly, some people on Burdastyle seem to give low ratings for the wrong reasons, in your case I would guess they are jealous of you (as a pretty, young, curvy AND skilled girl). Also, some seem perpetually scared of all visible skin. Very silly. Don’t let it get to you, you make great stuff, I love the “Westwood-dress”!

      Thank you, i’m used to getting negative comments alot, aleast i dont put myself on page three like alot of people choose to do. All the negativity about my body actually led to me locking myself away and learning things so i could go out and shock people. Thank you for youre support, I’m just here to help people and show you dont need to be tiny to make things look lovely! Take care…:D

      I can’t believe people are so… stupid! I think it’s all about jealousy, you get it if you’re thin too. It’s sad that some people who are unhappy about themselves try to put other people down too rather than do something about their own issues.
      Never ever hide again, honestly, you look great, and you make great clothes!
      Oh, btw, i once accidently made another member leave this site just by asking her not to post any more negative comments about other people’s bodies (thin girls in that case). She took it as me calling her fat (not true)… ah. If people could just accept that we all look different!

      Hello fellow sewers,

      I am sorry to hear that people are critiquing the model and not the creation, again. Please remember to just click on the lightening bolt below their comment for removal or let me know by writing on my wall or messaging me. It is unfortunate that there are people who surf the web just trying to ruin some bodies day.
      I think every one of our members are beautiful and please don’t let anyone on here put you down. If they do, they will have a rough time dealing with me.

      Happy sewing from your friendly Burdastyle moderator!
