Almost finished: Wool Jacket

This is my wool jacket project, but it's not entirely finished. It needs a final pressing, buttons, button holes, and custom painting. You'll have to wait to see what the painting looks like!

The buttons will be marbled grey with 4 holes. And theres a good size shoulder pad in this bad boy!
It also has cheetah lining. 

The skirt portion of the jacket zips off, as well as the pussy bow collar. Sorry I forgot to take photos of it without the bow collar. 

Draped Pink Dress

In my "spare" time I made this greek inspired pink dress. I had the 
-pink sheer draped material leftover from the Triumph competition last year
- silk (the top part of the underdress) from pants I made 
-a knit material from the Triumph competition used as the skirt portion of the underdress

The lace is all I bought for this, for a total of $15 and I have a little leftover

Ignore that I have no makeup on please!

Danier Jacket- Final Product

Here it is!! My WASPS inspired Danier Leather Jacket, made of brown lamb leather, flannel, and faux sheerling. The sheerling liner zips out, and the sleeves zip off of that so that it is wearable all year round.

BAHAHAHA MONET in the background!

Sequin Dress for the Gala

This past Friday I attended a Gala for Civil Eng at U of T. I designed a Champaign coloured sequin dress for the event and was so pleased with how it all came together. Although it should have been 2" longer.... wooops.
