Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics in Berkeley is my favorite fabric store and they have a really great 50% off cotton section in the back that usually has a batik a just can’t pass up. This fabric is just such a find.
I only bought 2 yards of it, so decided to make myself a simple flared skirt with a wide and high waist band. This was one of the project I was working on before my friends show, but I realized none of the shoes I could pair with it were appropriate for the venue. Girl problems!
I’d also just like to take a moment to explain that all the photos in the last year were taken by me. I set up my tiny little Canon PowerShot on a tripod in my backyard and do my best to find the right light and poses. That’s why they sometimes end up in a bit blurry. I’m looking into a new system but just wanted to explain how I’ve been doing it so far. Each post on here takes me a lot of time to put together as I not only design and sew each garment, I’m the photographer, edititor and writer. Every single thing you see here is done by me, so there may be a week or two where I don’t have time to get something done, but I am going to try to keep posting weekly!
