It've been wanting to learn how to sew for a long time now. But these three beautiful ladies inspire me so much, that I'm actually thinking of applying for courses this summer. It's a long studying programm (but the best in my city, my mom studied there when she was a student), which'll take me two years to finish, but I really want to be able to make clothes.
So, ladies who inspire me:
Marisa Lynch from New Dress A Day - an amazing blogger who rescebntly finished her year long journey of "365 days, 365 dollars" and made 365 pieces of closing, reconstructing old huge dresses from pile sales. She's starting a second year in a few weeks.
I'm really impressed by her abilities -
... she takes a dress, which looks like this...
All the pictures are taken from Marisa's blog.... and makes it look like this!
I have a few vintage things which are demanding some work - I've bought them mostly for fabric, and they don't fit at all (I have a skirt in British size 24. To compare - I'm British size 10)))). So Marisa's way definitelly is one of the ways I'd love to go in the future)
Keiko Lynn from Keiko Lynn
This beautiful girl recunstructs vintage clothes and makes new dresses herself for her clothing line Postlapsaria.
I adore her signature peplum skirts, as well as beautiful dresses.
All the pictures are taken from Keiko's blog.
And the third lady. Those, who follow me for a while, already had a chance to meet her. This is my best friend and a great seamstress Alexandra (Sasha). She's the one who made me that amazing black lace dress for 1920s themed party.
I've took this picture from her facebook account - it was taken at lake Geneva))
I know that a lot of great ladies I follow also can sew - Anika from By Anika, poet from Seamstress Stories and many other. I just want to tell every single one of you - girls, you are such an inspiration to me! Thank you so much for showing me all the beauty of creating clothes with you own hands :*)
