I've been busy participating in fashion shows over the last year-- too busy to share any of my creations on craftster!

But it's been far too long, so without further ado, here are some highlights from my fashion shows.

I've been playing around with Subtraction cutting- a technique invented by Julian Roberts (www.julianand.com) where the design of the outfit is based on the design of the pattern; not the other way around. People who are interested in pattern design should check out his work. Lots of the outfits here involve the use of subtraction cutting, as well as draping.

--This black upper bodice was draped on a mannequin, and the measurements were taken and used to sub-cut the cotton-silk bottom of the dress. I made the belt out of leather, and my friend Addie Storm made all the jewellery for this show. Her beautiful creations can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/AddieStorm--

This one was also made using subtraction cutting- the tunnel technique. It's made out of sheer black organza.

The top and bottom were made using different types of subraction cutting. The skirt uses the plug technique and the top uses the tunnel technique. The top also has sheer organza embroidered onto the jersey.

I originally made this outfit as a joke, but ended up loving it. I call the bottoms "tutu panties" and the top, although you can't see it, is sheer down the middle.

I made the top by stitching a billion layers of contrasting bias tape to a bottom layer. It took freaking forever. And it doesn't even fit me! The harem pants were made by draping, and they're made out of linen.

Back viewww.

The top was reconstructed out of a silk nightie, the bottom was fashioned out of cotton sateen, by draping.

These leggings are probably my favorite thing I've ever made- too bad I don't have a better picture. I made them by taping off a pattern, then painting in black with acryllic paint to form the triangle lattice pattern. The dress was made using subtraction cutting, then it was hand-dyed.

Peace out.

More pics of stuff I've made and fashion shows can be peeped at my blog if you like what you've seen here:

Cheesy wow, I had my first ever fashion show back in april but it looked far from this. I love your top idea with the bias tape. In my fahion show I had a dress made out of fabric i turned into bias tape and then sewd onto the dress. Took 4 days non-stop. Kudos to your work ethic, and your awesome clothes :p
