For a long time I wanted to make one of the pieces on the showstudio design download. I decided to attempt to construct the Alexander McQueen jacket for my sisters 21st. After many hours of pain, frustration, doubt and elation I finally finished it . I finished the garment a few months before the world of fashion lost such an inspirational and talented figure. I learnt a lot from this jacket and would encourage sewers to have a go at it.

Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
