Ready for Any Challenge!

How lovely is my client Karla in her high-waisted Army pants! These army pants have a striking bit of femininity with a high waist and back exposed zipper.  The pants also balloon at the bottom with a self-tie and can be worn for almost any occasion.. She accessorized with a cute crop top, peek-a-boo toe ankle boots and some simple jewelry!

She looks amazing do you agree?

Chanel Coat Inspiration

When I saw this Chanel Coat in the online fashion show I knew I had to have it or I knew I had to make one like it. I was more than sure the cost of this coat would be about $4,200 whew too rich for me.. However, when the collection was released, I couldn’t wait until I found out the REAL Price :-O

Umm yeah that will never happen unless I hit the $455 Million Dollar lottery currently going on! Heck that price can purchase the Bernina 560 I need, two student machines and fabric for my ready-to-wear.. anyway I digress.. here is my actual creation from this inspiration..

This is a beautiful 100% Wool Tweed from Mood Fabrics I purchased mine at the store in New York but there is a similar one Here.  I used Burda pattern 7020 with the following modifications:
Added 2″ to sleeve and added a fringed self fabric band
Added a waist casing for the leather belt
I obtained the leather belt (which is simply a leather tie by the yard) from ToHo Shoji Trimmings in New York along with the Swarovski Balls on the end of the leather tie.
I loved making this coat! My client was so amazed when she saw it and want to purchase it from
Dets on the rest of the outfit:
Leather pants DIY (details coming soon)
Suede Hills with studs — JCrew
Ring DIY (details coming soon)
More coming soon 🙂

Chic Jumpsuit for a Chic Girl!

How lovely is my client who requested a custom jumpsuit in less than a week.  The great thing about creating this for her is she was open to creative design, she was willing to come to as many fittings as required and she was very easy to create and sew for! She knew exactly want she wanted and it came out lovely!
This is an all over scattered sequin stretch fabric jumpsuit with jogging pant style bottom and plunging neckline.  The self-made belt cinched at the waist although it was originally a tie and it has long sleeves with a princess shoulder seam! People fell in love with her and the design and I am happy she choose me to create it for her!
