Who are you?
Fair question. You can call me D. I live in New York City and spend my days working hard for the money and my evenings spending said hard-earned money (often in the Garment District).
I dig fashion, too. What’s your style?
I like to call it lazy classic. I *like* well-fitting tailored garments, but somehow my closet ends up with a mish-mosh of stuff. I’ve been sewing for about two years, so right now I have lots of store-bought clothes, the stuff I made last year (which is definitely of beginner quality), and the things I’ve been making more recently (much better). So essentially when I get dressed for work, I stick my hand in the closet, pull out a handful of cloth, and pray some of it goes together. And is not too wrinkled.
Awesome photos! Do you get them done professionally?
Why pay, when we can create! I have a boyfriend with an amazing eye for design. Let’s call him The Photographer. He’s the one who inspired me to take up sewing in the first place. He’s a very artistic guy who was dumbfounded by the fact that I didn’t have a creative hobby/outlet. Now he’s more concerned about the ever-growing fabric stash consuming the living room.
Do you design this stuff yourself?
I wish! Actually, I’m getting to the point where I think I can start designing my own interesting garments. Using patterns has helped me learn a ton of techniques that I knew nothing about beforehand. I still have some trouble understanding them at times (I’m looking at you Burda!), but I figure that means I’m not nearly done learning yet!
I want to ask you (fill in the blank)/compliment you on (fill in the blank), but I don’t want to leave it in the comments section. Do you have an e-mail address I where I PROMISE NOT TO SEND YOU SPAM?
