Box pleats

20140321_132912

I totally fell in love with this Zebra print cotton and decided to make a little box pleat dress, the trick with box pleats is to get the pattern match exactly in-line or it throws off the whole effect. Also as it happens my over-locker has just arrived and I can’t wait to play with it.

New Project!

Untitled-1

Started a new project, just to keep the grey-cells moving really! So I’m looking into armour and structure probably going to make a little set of body adornments, most likely using constructed textiles.

Design specs and illustrations for Water of Life collection, so starting at the beginning no.1 is a coat with abstract frill on front side seam, made in bright blue cotton, with a corset and trousers in a pleated silk fabric in a mushroom colour, next to that is  a silky trapeze top, with a high-waisted pencil skirt made in ombre dyed knitted wool. The third is a double breasted long grey wool coat with white ‘frills’ on the side of the button band (would be made as out fit no.5) the fourth, a simple dress that buttons at the front and has a 3 tier bustle built into the back, made in bright blue cotton, with no.5 is a shorts and jacket (with a built-in bustle at the back) combo in ombre dyed knitted wool, with a silk trapeze top in the pleated silk underneath and finally a grey suit with white “frills” along the length of the body, (which would be made as outfit no.6).

Design specs and illustrations for New Horizons collection,

New Horizons s/s ‘14 collection line-up.

Quirky, summer '14 collection designed to compliment the work of EABurns.
Quirky, summer ’14 collection designed to compliment the work of EABurns.

New Horizons design project for EABurns using my inspirations of feathers, smoke and other natural things interpreted into some quirky prints in bright colours, which will go into panels and sections of my designs. So the collection consists of 6 outfits all of which would be made in responsibly sourced and preferably organic cotton, silk and wool. Starting on the left, a just above the knee pleated full skirt and printed blouse with a peter pan collar, no 2. Is a digitally printed, mid calf full skirt with a high waist and a blue, cropped jumper. No 3. Is simple white long sleeved blouse with a yellow knit short sleeve jumper and printed floaty cotton shorts, the 4th outfit is a simple day dress with print paneling in a spotty print. No 5. Is a light silk, digitally printed floor length number with a cut-away hem and finally the last outfit is a red knit low neck jumper, with a feather printed shirt and grey trousers with printed panels and pockets.

First outfit – What do you think?

outfit 1 front out fit 1 back

Although I’ve basically finished sewing my collection an actual photo shoot won’t be happening until Tuesday (weather permitting!) So here is my first outfit for the Water of life collection simple trapeze top in the most beautiful and flowing mushroom coloured silk – that reflects the light so well and wool shorts that have been ombre dyed. Will also have a jacket with a built in bustle. Very much an outfit for the summer, modelled by my beautiful sister.

Would love some opinions, tell me what you think.
