Just Another Random Idea

Aside from these ideas, I thought I'll just throw in another one for this particular Fab.

And here it is! What do you think?

Olivia Palermo + Mr Butterick = Yeay!

By now, we all know that Olivia Palermo can do absolutely no wrong when it comes to fashion. She is simply a classic beauty.

Needless to say, I think half a zillion girls would love to raid her wardrobe and dream to own a piece of her collection. As for me, I think I might just get lucky thanks to good old Mr Butterick.
And here is the lady herself in an almost similar version of the dress! Gorgeous eh?

That Happy Black

I have been thinking about this particular fabric for quite a while now. I didn't want to suggest the usual like a skirt or a dress.

So when I finally saw this, I immediately knew!

I'm in need of someone from fashion design background (students are more than welcome) to help me with something that I am working on. I really can't draw so for starters, I would really need someone who can do some sketches.

These lovely ones are from Rachel of Vizbasix

If anyone is interested, do get back to me and will discuss more details. Thanks! :)

October Run

Things to look forward to this month:

Not that I need more reasons to go for a fabric hunt but I guess it doesn't hurt to do some (strictly) window shopping anyway.

Venue: RDS
Date: 28th oct -31st October.

I've enrolled for two courses with Textile Workshop Dublin this month.

Ready, Steady, Embroider' & Fabulous Fabric Printing. The first course kicked off last night and was a great fun.

I might just go a bit greedy and enroll for the Delightful Digital Cushions too!

Eley Kishimoto: Werk No 17

Here is one book I have been eyeing to get my hands on for the last few weeks. 

Brainchild of the talented duo Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto of the UK fashion/design company Eley Kishimoto.Eley Kishimoto: Werk No 17 has gained nothing but good review since its released few months back.

Taken from Creative Review, this part here will definitely make me want to succumb to my temptation even more now.

"Each edition of the new issue uses archive Eley Kishimoto materials in a slightly different way, so that no two are exactly the same. 

A bundle of four fabrics on both the front and back of the book act as its cover, with the back four folding over the spine and secured to the front with staples and dress making pins, mimicking, say Work, "a textile work-in progress".

It's a lovely piece of work that showcases Eley Kishimoto's textile designs in a very hands-on way. Threads drop out, and the covers fray as you flick through the book, but that simply adds to the charm."

Pimp It

Image via We Heart It

My machine is no doubt collecting dust as we speak. It has been safely & nicely tucked away in its box for almost 10 months now.

I don't know how other people managed it but it's almost impossible for me to find any spare time to sew with two little boys. Mind you, I am still a beginner so instead of taking 5 minutes to sew a straight line, it might take me 20 minutes instead. Hehe...

Oh but I'm not giving up yet. And in case I do, you know what's gonna happen to my lonesome machine. I'm gonna pimp it like I mean it! ;)
