Being a 40's/50's girl myself, I don't usually find myself having a large collection of 20's-30's clothes. If by chance I do, they are all evening dresses. Not quite appropriate for the Gatsby summer picnic, since it is during the day and we are literally picnicking - on a blanket, on the grass. I'm thinking that I will be stuck making something since what I dream of wearing I either: a) won't be able to find in 3 weeks time, b) doesn't exist in wearable condition anymore, c) even if I did find something along the lines of my dreams would probably never fit me. So that leaves me with yet another project, in mustard yellow and cream for me to complete...asap!
life currently. 19 skirts finally cut out...next up in line? Overlock machine. Soon they could belong to you!
A while ago, before summer even started I had decided that it was my mission to make some new clothes! This was of course, before I realized I was going to open my company in september. So what had begun as a great beginning to a new closet became just a few additions and a pile of unfinished projects! I was set on starting with a few new blouses and a couple of pairs of shorts. As soon as I can find someone to take my picture, I can show you what came of these little fabric piles!
I've been in a sewing cave. Lots to tell you, about the products for the store and about some little projects for myself...
I am starting over! Phew! This blog has been around for a bit but has never developed to anything like I actually wanted it to be. So we have a clean slate and a fresh beginning!
This blog is dedicated to documenting my experiences, thoughts, creativity and passion about what I do best - design. I am a lingerie/fashion/costume designer who lives in San Francisco and is about to open my own company! I want to share with you my inspirations, my lessons in sewing and all of the other wonderful things that I love & fill my head with every day.
So keep your eyes peeled! My tiny line - Lola Devlin will be in stores (a store!) in September! Woo!
