Just enjoy the gorgeous Fashion!
I have been working on a sub-project for some time now. I’ve just finished it and it’s now published. I hope you’ll like it.
You may either like sewing or just enjoy window shopping, I think all of us have a soft
spot for fashion, good designs, or putting it simply: pretty things to watch.
Personally I like getting inspired by creative designs especially when I’m sewing. And I wanted to share with you some sort of a scrap book for my inspirations. Finally I managed to design a webpage specificly focusing on the things I like about fashion, style, outfits, accessories, shoes etc.
You may either enjoy going through the photos, or use it as an inspirational lookbook for your sewing projects, up to you.
In either case…enjoy! D
1960s Fashion Revisited
I have always admired the fashion in 1960s. When I started sewing, I started to get more interested in the history of what we wear. After all, fashion is one of the biggest driving forces of world economy today. And many of us, simply LOVE it :)
Enjoying the pictures from that era for so long, I finally decided that I should learn more about sixties fashion. And the more I read about it, the more I understand that it really was a “decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the period”.

Watch and Learn Grasshopper - How to Make Bound Buttonholes
When I first started learning how to sew (I’m still learning something new each day) one of the webpages in my top reading list was sweet Canadian “sewaholic” Tasia’s page. In here, I learned quite a nice way for making buttonholes. After practicing this method couple of times, I started using it not only as a buttonhole, but also on inseam pockets for pants, dresses, coats etc. If you’d like to learn how to do it properly, you may take a look at Tasia’s tutorial:
New Designer trials / top - Rachel Comey
When I first laid eyes on this in Vogue Patterns I loved it. I thought it could be a handy top for everyday use. The pattern is again from a famous designer: Rachel Comey.
