Weekend Sketches

After a busy two weeks, I took this weekend just to relax at home and do some sketching and sewing. From Wednesday to Friday I did a design and make your own garment workshop at the Victoria and Albert museum. Although I'm not completely happy with the outcome I learnt a lot about draping fabric and pattern making.


I took some inspiration from the shape of this dress and made a new dress yesterday. It was just a trial as I was testing out a pattern I'd made but I really like how it's turned out. I'm going to change the pattern where it needs to be altered and make another dress probably out of navy or maybe dark grey jersey. 


These are just some quick sketches I've done over the past few days. 



Lots of love,
Tiana x

  3. I like the cut, I think it has a nice crop length and I like the shoulder too. Not sure the way it opens at the back though, but it's only my personal taste. Great work. Have a lovely day :)

    1. Thank you :) the back isn't meant to stick up so much, it's just how I sewed it. Thanks for commenting.

  7. This is really cool! It's awesome that you know how to sew. We're from a generation that is losing its touch with the sewing machine. :(
