New sewing Project. Hand Made Bandeau Top

 I finally finished making the Bandeau top that I designed a few months ago! I used a turquoise, dangle sparkle fabric and lined it with nude spandex material. This is a great summer piece based off of the 50's/60's trend.

 The back features a bra hook close.

 I did not make the shorts; only the top.

Edgar Allan Poe Inspired shorts and top( Made and Designed by me)

These garments are inspired by one of my favorite poets- Edgar Allan Poe.
Of course the shorts are related to his poem "The Raven." and the top also gives off the mood throughout his poems. The shorts are high waisted and have a mock cuff at the bottom. They are made from cotton raven printed fabric. The top is completely made of black lace and is cinched in the bust area with an elastic band holding the top. I wouldn't necessarily style these two together like this but you get the point.

1930's Inspired Jacket( made and designed by me)

I designed and made this jacket and dress about 6 months ago.
It was inspired by the floral prints and colors of the 30's.
Of course this is my modern interpretation of the 1930's trends. But I incorporated the 30's looks with the  bolero jacket, accentuated shoulders, floral printed fabric and the teal coloring of both garments. The Jacket has a mock cuff for sleeves and is fully lined with teal silky fabric. The tube  dress is made of teal jersey material, and is cinched at the sides and between the bust area.
