My new podcast is live This is episode 1, and we are talking about Being unique in the fashion industry how to stand out
The skill to create handmade goods is an art in itself. However, to blossom this art into an opportunity of employment may seem daunting at first. There’s a ton of different approaches to marketing your handmade creations online and we’ll take a look at the best options out there. .
So you want to learn how to sew. you've come to the right place because I have developed the number one Method for easy sewing. I enjoy sewing without patterns. Sewing without patterns can be rewarding. Because you make something completely from scratch using your own design from your head. It's something that you need to practice over time. A sort of skill that you need to learn usually I would start by draping a piece of fabric on the mannequin. When I drape the fabric I get to see where I could cut a hole or cut some arm holes. I usually start with a square, a triangle or a circle. and then I play with the fabric and start cutting holes and connecting squares and circles to create neckline and armholes. This process is easy. I recommend you to start on like a scrap piece of fabric. That you don't mind ruining. At first this method is hard because you make a lot of mistakes. But it's also fun to create something that is completely unique. And is not conforming to pre-made sewing patterns.
Don't get me wrong sewing patterns have a place in the sewing world, in fact, I do believe that everyone should learn how to use a sewing pattern and learn how to take measurements from the body. however, I think this freehand Sewing method is really fun and creative to use it can really take the anxiety and the scariness away from sewing for the first time I know a lot of people find it intimidating creating their first piece of clothing or even saying their own pillow or any sewing Project. I think it's good to get out of this mindset of really thinking I have to do everything right all the time. Sometimes it might be good to take some risk and when you take risks you can find you create something really beautiful. I think I've created the most wonderful designs from taking the risk. If you don't know where to start I would say begin by using my free YouTube tutorial this is perfect for the winter weather it's how you can create a faux fur cover up and it's 100% no sewing. I also have an easy DIY tartan top that you could try this is using the very simple method and the basic idea.
But if you'd like to take a step further I have an entire skillshare course on how to sew your own clothes I walk you through how to make 4 different garments from scratch using absolutely no sewing patterns this is for the complete beginner so is not for someone who's advanced. I'll be creating some advanced sewing pattern videos later for my advanced people out there.

Hello my lovely welcome back to my blog so today I have an amazing fantastic topped designed for you. It's a puffy style rustic kind of top. When I designed it I was channeling vibes of Victorian mixed with a little bit of antique style. I was looking for the kind of fabrics that they would have used in that time. For this project I chose cotton I was looking for sort of muted rustic brown fabrics. I found the perfect rustic brown fabric. I found it on fabric.com they have amazing fabrics on this website and its the best fabric I have ever tried online. I browsed through all the different sections and I found this fabric. It was perfect for the project that I was creating. My initial idea was to make a simple top. I am currently making a skillshare course. About making your own garments without any patterns. So I decided to start sketching and making different ideas. Of how I can make an interesting piece without a pattern.
I decided to do this because this was my original way of learning. how to sew before I even went to fashion University. I learnt how to sew. I started by making my own garments from scratch without any patterns at all. When I first started learning how to sew I found patterns to be quite intimidating. I found it confusing and hard to follow a lot of the patterns. They were very difficult to understand for a beginner. So what I used to do was I would find some fabrics and cut it up and experimenting with drape. And creating shapes and designing without using any patterns. With this way I developed my free hand sewing technique. In my upcomingskillshare course. I teach you how you can make any garment you want From Scratch. Using no sewing patterns at all. This is perfect for beginners to advanced level. Because you can always learn something new from creating something without using patterns. with this top I started off with a huge baggy Square to drape over the body. Then started to add in some Batwing Arms. I gathered the neckline and the waist with some elastic and I added pleating to the hem.
I have developed my own easy freehand cutting method this technique can be applied to anything you are making. Don’t forget to sign up below. Click the “subscribe” button and you’ll be the first to know as soon as I launch a new course or have a big announcement to share with my students.
Hello my beautiful people welcome back to the blog, I'm so happy to see you here! I can’t get over this adorable dress. This pattern is a winner. Today I have a new design to share with you all I've created this really fun asymmetrical black dress do you love the dress as much as I do? Let me know tell me what you think of my new dress. For this dress I used Black cotton from fabric.com.
I designed this dress exclusively for the new skillshare course that I have coming up in the future and in this new course I teach you exactly how to make this dress step by step using a freehand cutting method that I developed.
This exciting freehand cutting method means that you can create any garment without the use of any sewing patterns which is amazing because if you don't use any patterns it means that you can design freely. This is my favourite way to design because it gives me the complete freedom to make the shapes. And create the look that I want and customise it exactly the way I need it to be. With this dress design I decided to sketch it out first when I was thinking of this design I wanted something very elegant and beautiful but at the same time fun and different! Currently I'm completely obsessed with voluminous shapes at the moment. I usually I like the very tight fitted things but I'm really obsessed with the cinch in the waist and the voluminous silhouette. So for this dress I decided to create a very full asymmetrical skirt and a nice baggy top and cinch it in the waist with elastic and then I accentuated this detail with my belt in the styling afterwards.

Fashion illustration can be an amazing expression of your fashion design. If your currently learning fashion illustration here are few amazing tips that will help you to improve your fashion illustrations. entry into a rapidly changing field of contemporary fashion illustration can be difficult. It's easy to get stuck with drawing the old fashion way. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with traditional fashion illustration however to stand out in a crowded industry its important to distinguish your style from the rest. Through the analysis of interpretation and themes across fine art, social, political and cultural contexts in fashion illustration.
I usually like to use mixed medium to explore the contemporary style of fashion illustration. There are incomparable opportunities for me to work with collage, mixed media and line in my fashion illustration work. Contemporary fashion illustration practice is increasingly integrated across many creative industries. It’s used in magazines, fashion design, graphic design and many visual based products. The flexibility of the multi use for fashion illustration makes it the perfect practice or career. In my career i provide my unique fashion illustration services for commissioned work, if you want to hire me to work for you order my illustration package.
I also have a online beginner fashion illustration course that expands your mindset and skill set through workshops and projects that explore mixed media, collage and process experimentation and the creation of fashion illustration images even if you can’t draw.
