A couple of weeks back I screen printed a length of fabric and then turned it into this circle skirt! I really love wearing bright prints and wanted to make something unique. By layering different shapes the print was formed quite spontaneously, it's kinda fun that way as it meant I could play around with the outcome and watch it develop as I went along. Admittedly I'm not the best at sewing but since the things I usually make are just for me I'm ok with all of the imperfections, even when the lining is not hemmed straight and the zip is a little wonky.
After university one of my many dreams is to start a business, and I'd really love to put my prints into my own fashion designs. I love what Abbey Rich does (designs and prints her own clothes- you can find her instagram here!) and she is definitely one of my biggest inspirations. Maybe one day that will be me but I'll probably get someone else to do the sewing as I am not toooo great. I have a DIY project planned to make cushions from the left over fabric but I think that will be put on hold for a while as I have to start reading books for my dissertation at some point. I think the next clothing item will definitely be some kind of dress; if you know of any good tutorials then please let me know!
(I found it kinda difficult to publish this because I haven't uploaded any outfit posts since my last blog. It can be a little daunting sharing these things on the internet... but whatever! We only get one body and I'm trying to not hate it. Also I edited these photos with Photoshop Actions I bought from ABM which was a good decision. I'm so stingy when it comes to spending money yet if it's editing software/Photoshop related I won't even hesitate. It's clear where my priorities lie.)
