I LOVE THE KIMONO TOP AND THE BLACK AND RED HOODIE! W00t!  Very sexy. I would just take the plaid ribon off the red and black hoodie because that kind of ruins the whole punk rock feel. Just my opinion.  Grin

Where do you get your fabric from?  Ir is amazing just like your work.  thanks for sharing
I get all my fabrics in LA. I just walk the streets (hehe, that sounds funny) and go in all the different stores (around the garment district.

SUPERLATIVE!!!  Your own patterns ROCK MY SOCKS!!! 

Where did you get the fabric for the kimono?  AND... if I may be so bold, is can you walk me through the steps on cutting/sewing the front?  Obviously the sleeves and bottom would be simple Smiley  Do you overlap?  Do they meet in the middle?  Did you cut one back section and two front?  Do the two front actually meet on the sides or do they just get sewn to the large sleeve opening?

How did you make the hood for the 3rd top?  Is it one giant piece folded so there is no seam across and just gathered (if that makes sense)?  Or did you just cut two squares? 

The last one showcases your ink VERY nicely!  Such a feminine back!!! 

You're pretty much right on with the kimono top. It is two cuts for the bodice front and one for the back. You do overlap but just towards the center. I got the fabric in LA in one of the stores--I don't even know the name  Cry  Sorry about that
As far as the hoodie it's just a normal hoodie with the seam down the middle. I made this one uber small compared to a traditional hoodie. I call it a skull cap hood because it fits really close/tight to the head and hairline kinda like a cold water wetsuit (that's where I got the idea). I really intended it to be worn down and not up.
