So, since I'm blogging more than usual, I just wanted to update everyone on well, my life. You all know that I am in fashion school at the moment and trying to graduate next year. I know in the beginning I said I could not sew that well. Well, I have learned pretty quickly. I was able to design and create a chic dress for my patternmaking class. My inspiration was the Lolita fashion which is prevalent all over the world but I was inspired specifically by the Lolita subculture found in Japan. There are several different types of Lolita...
there's the sweet Lolita
the Goth Lolita

Shiro & Kuro Lolita and several more
So I incorporated this style in my design and created a chic and fashion forward version of this look. Now, I did not want to show my garment and design on this blog but I can quickly describe it. I used satin and lace fabric. The bodice part of the dress was princess bodice but had lace triangular insets on the side. The sleeve was made of alternating strips of lace and satin fabric. I added buttons to the back and closed off with a zipper at the top of the ruffled skirt. I am very proud of my design and that I was able to sew it all together. Okay, enough about that! I now want to talk about my future endeavors for this blog. I hope to start doing more fashion blogging and actually putting together some outfits. Hopefully you're all as excited as I am so stay tuned. Let me know what else do you guys want to see from me! bye :)
