A High-end watercolor project…

silk dress watercolor

Hello Everyone! 

I know, I’m terribly behind my posting schedule :( But I started a new project lately, which requires 150% of my time until February… But I could not keep myself away from the blog any longer and decided to share with you a project I finished right before my hectic work life began. 

As seen above, this time it is not the pattern (or our size 0 model’s mind-blowing posing skills) that shine out, but the fabric with amazing watercolor prints on…

Watch and Learn Grasshopper - Origami Raglan Sleeves Tutorial

Almost everyone who’ve read my post about the Red Dress I made using Burda Style’s 08/2012 no. 121 pattern, were very interested in how I made the origami sleeves and added it to the original dress pattern. 

As said before in my related post, I was inspired by Straight Grain's project she made for her adorable daughter. She provides a great tutorial about it in her blog. But let me share with you how I interpreted the technique and adopted it into a commercial pattern. 

So here we go:

Just another red dress? I don’t think so :)

sewing fashion red dress burda origami sleeves

Well, as I have announced couple of days ago, I decided to sew a red dress for the Republic Day celebrations on October 29th. 

I had an eye on the Burda Style’s seamed dress released with August 2012 issue for quite some time and when I decided to sew a red dress, this was the only pattern that came to my mind. (Pattern also sold here separately.)

I believe my version of the dress turned out to be more stylish than the original dress… but I’m having a hard time in saying the same thing for the model… :))

Would you join us for sewing a red dress for October 29th?

Hi Guys!

I’ve created an event for the Republic Day on October 29th this year. I’ll be sewing a red dress with a white accessory or a small detail in white (obviously, the national colors… :P )

I’ll be sharing other blog writers’ and sewing enthusiasts projects on the day as well, with giving them back-links in my Turkish version of Sewing Your Style.

If you also would like to join me for this event (probably with less nationalistic motives :P) I can post your projects with your links as well - but please submit your links and / or photos at least a day before (Sunday Oct 28th) so that I can write the post for Monday. 

Enjoy!

An Excessively Purple Dress!

While the fall is coming loud and clear, the wardrobes and the sewing projects are getting darker and thicker. Well, I thought if I’m to loose the light and bright colors of summer, I should at least go down with a good fight! So please see above the first dress of my fall collection :)

Watch and Learn Grasshopper - No-Pattern Sequin Skirt Tutorial

It’s been quite some time since I added a post in the “Watch and Learn Grasshopper" section. I guess this one would be much more interesting for many fashion and sewing enthusiasts ‘cause it’s a very easy-to-sew project and the best part is, there’s no need for a pattern!

I’m featured in Sew News!

This month has been full of surprises and gifts for me!

- Last week I learned that I was featured in Fashion Spotlight blogs of Tumblr.Com;  

- I then received a very nice fabric gift from another blogger and …

- yesterday I got a gift pack sent from miles away with a letter saying that I was featured in Sew News Magazine’s October  / November 2012 issue! How amazing is that?!  :D 


rachel comey v1247 vogue 1247 review awardMonths ago, when I first launched the English version of my blog “Sewing Your Style” and published a post on their blog “sewingdistrict.com"I got a message from the editor of the magazine, saying that they were very interested in my review and would like to include it in their upcoming issues.

My review was on the famous Rachel Comey pattern from Vogue Patterns no. 1247 ( read the review here if you like ).

Then I totally forgot about it… since this week! As a thank you gesture, they also sent me an awesome book called “Sewing Basics” by Sandra Bardwell. Amazing really!

I was of course thrilled by it :) But  let me talk about the book a little. I will be writing a book review about it after I read it through (couple of times most probably), but let me tell you this much, even with a quick look through I can see that it’s quite a good reference book where all techniques are described, photographed and illustrated very clearly.

As a self-taught seamstress I am quite familiar with sewing books and many of them give me the uneasy feeling that make me think as if how hard they try to explain the very basics, I cannot get it…

That’s why, I believe the most important thing in such self-taught type of books is the clear instructions with lots of good quality photos and illustrations that won’t make you feel like a dummy. Sandra Bardwell’s book of Sewing Basics is definitely very reader-friendly and includes quite a lot of techniques that are beyond “basic” sewing skills.

But, more on the book review later. Now let me enjoy myself a little :D

By the way, keep following their website; they’re always giving free stuff, patterns, mag.s books etc. every other day! : http://sewnews.com

What do I do? I try to get the best out of life...How did it all start? One day I decided that it is time for me to stop paying for clothes so much and make them myself. But the problem was, I had never sewn before in my life! So, I started following my inner voice... and youtube records... Since then, I sew whenever I can and defy the zillion dollar fashion industry in my own way :))
