    marlorcor added the project Reconstructed Romper
    Romper_2_listing

    So, my boyfriend’s mom gave me a really cute white romper- the problem was, it was a teensy bit too small. Just small enough to make it really awkward-looking. However, I loved the top part- so pre…

    Such a lovely idea! I am a huge fan of incorporating couture techniques into our creations. It makes them so much more high-quality, so much more special. I’m majoring in apparel design and constru…

    Ahhhh, I just can’t stop making these! Another top made from a vintage silk scarf and some lace I had. No pattern, just draped onto a mannequin- the result is flowy and comfy and nice, even in the …

    100_4937_listing

    Made from a Cynthia Rowley Simplicity pattern. This dress has pretty big sentimental value to me, because the fabric was a vintage robe of my Grandma’s. She passed away recently, and the need to ma…

    100_4890_listing

    I went antique shopping with my mom a few days ago, and found this really nice old scarf; a big, silk square in a great orange print. It was cheap too, so I started carrying it around with me and t…

    The book’s called “couture sewing techniques” by Claire Schaeffer (I think that’s how you spell her last name?) And yes, I used organza. Alot of it!

    I wanted to make something for my little neighbor, Railey, who is just adorable. My sister babysits for her, and although she doesn’t really know me she loved this teddy bear. I made it from a real…

    I have always wanted to design my own fair isle pattern, so one morning I took out a pad of graph paper, made a little inspiration collage and came up with this design. Black and white florals that…

    This was a mini project, made out of necessity. It’s made from vintage fabric, a scrap of elastic, blue vintage ribbon (a gift from a very kind friend) and a circle of cardboard I cut out from an e…

    This is a project which serves no discernible purpose in my life, since I don’t wear it ever. Needless to say, I’m really glad I made it. It is about 40-50% hand-sewn. When I started it, my entire …

    I feel like this is the type of project that all your experience builds up to, the kind of thing that once it’s done you get gratification unlike anything else you’ve ever made. This dress is made …
