Hi guys!

I'm just finishing up my second year at fashion college in Toronto, and I thought I'd share some of the things I've been working on!

Craftster has been such a fun time, and has inspired me to keep sewing and creating even when I was exhausted, so I'm putting these up as a thank you, for all the support of the fantastic people on this forum Smiley

This was a project for a knitwear class, we had a week to be taught how to sew skirt/sweats/sweater or whatever it was, design our own interpretation of it, and hand a completed garment, pattern and technical sketch in the next week! Phew!

My lovely model is wearing a pair of biker shorts I also made underneath, since it really is a shirt. The fabric is a loose knit sweater fabric, with a gold thread running through.

This next one was also a knitwear project, where we had to make a boat neck sweater.

There are also small gold studs along the front neck and the cuff in place of buttons. And then the real drama is in the back!

A nice big cowl with gold chains strung across it! This is my personal favorite knitwear project, I wear it all the time, and it fits me, even though I'm double the size of my model! (She's a 6, I'm a 12)

This next one was for a contest I did at the start of school. 12 students were given the twelve signs of the zodiac, and we had to design and create an outfit with a $300 gift card from Fabricland.

This is Virgo!

All the skirt pieces were cut individually from a combination of organza, lace, tulle and chiffon; which were then hemmed and joined into the corset along with a super poufy petticoat. There are also inset bra-cups, because my runway model was lacking in the breast department.  It also had a bolero that went with it:

The jacket is essentially a bolero, with a giant ruffle.
If you really like it, and want to see the runway shots at the contest, or some of the other entries, you can go here:   http://www.catwalkcure.ca/photogalleries/pbalinksi.html

It's a slideshow on the companies website Smiley

Everything in this post was designed, drafted and sewn by me, so please ask my permission if you want to reproduce any of my work, and please don't sell copies of my garments.

If anybody would like to know how I did a specific thing, or a close-up of any details, I can add them in. Smiley

I love personal swaps!

I love the shirt, it works so well on your lovely model. And the simple neckline complements the drapey hem beautifully.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

These are fabulous!! The large ruffle bolero and white dress are classic with a modern twist and I love them! But my fave HAS to be the sweater with gold chains  Shocked DARLING! Exemplary work ^^

By the way....I went to the website and I LOVED watching the slide show!! There are quite a few pieces I wanted to reach through the screen and grab for myself! The red half sweater, some of those adorable corsets, the Bathing Suits!!! TO. DIE. FOR. *sigh* I love fashion Smiley
