2020!! What a year it’s been with its own shares of ups and downs. While covid made 2020 the worst for some of us, for me, it was probably the best. I found my love for fashion again thanks to Whitecliffe Fashion Tech after losing it while attending a university in 2019 that made me miserable. I met new friends, lost old ones as well as find a job that I love going to. I didn’t make this page on hopes I’d become insta famous or anything, I actually don’t even mind if I had no followers. I made it as a public diary recounting all my fashion experiences so I can hopefully look back at all my memories. If you manage to stumble upon this page and appreciate what I post, thanks! For now, apologies on the lack of posting, been busy with work and have taken a break from sewing for the summer to spend time doing other things I’m also passionate about. When uni starts up, this page is going to be full of content!⠀
⠀
This is my current sewing space, it isn’t the best one out there but I’m still grateful to have the privilege in being able to create my own sewing space. It’s located in my sunroom which can get incredibly hot during the summer which is why I choose to not sew when uni ends. For 2021, I plan to move my current sewing space into my garage where I can fit my own cutting table as well as a couch just in case I need to rest after an exhausting sewing session and it won’t be boiling in there. So far, procrastination has gotten the better of me and its been sitting unpainted for weeks so hoping to get it up and running before summer ends. So i’ll be sure to update when it has been completed.⠀

Here are the cargo pants, one of my favourite ones I’ve made because of all the detail that goes into it. Needs a good iron because of how easy it wrinkles but what an interesting fabric to work with. ⠀ ⠀ Comes with 6 pockets, patch pockets, bellow pockets and hip pockets. Has front fly opening and a lot of top and edge stitching as well as contrasting yoke. Very difficult to keep wrinkle free (if you couldn’t tell). Don’t exactly understand why children need this many pockets. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #style #photography #fashiondesign #whitecliffe #pants #shorts

Despite finishing men’s shorts and child cargo pants a while ago. I’ve only found the time and courage to post this. It isn’t my best work and I don’t exactly like the fabric choice but here it is. Child’s cargo pants will be next. Swipe for more upclose pics. ⠀ ⠀ First is the men’s shorts. I’ve used a maroon - burgundy linen with a contrasting fabric for the welt that gave it some texture and detail. Has hip pockets and welt pockets as well as a front fly zipper. ⠀ ⠀ Tried a new insta layout. Hope it’s nice! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #style #photography #fashiondesign #whitecliffe #pants #shorts

Women’s sleeveless top with facing and understitching details. My favourite thing about this garment is probably the flower shank button, compliments the flower pattern on the fabric well. ⠀ ⠀ Finished this garment a couple of weeks ago and only found time to post it now as life has been hectic. It’s been a week into term 4 with 2 more garments left to complete, hopefully I’ll get to post more personal projects once those are completed and more spare time on my hands! ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #style #photography #fashiondesign #top #shirt #flowers #pink

A child’s hoodie with side seam pockets and coverseaming details. One of my favourite garments that I’ve made thus far! Who knew side seams pockets would be so easy and fun to make? I didn’t have enough fabric for my front pieces so my tutor came up with the idea to do half one colour and half the other with cover seam details to lock it in. The two different purple colours as well as the cover seam details really makes it! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #style #photography #fashiondesign #child #hoodie

Short skirt with inverted pleat and invisible zip closure. Thought I’d spice up my second skirt by adding a contrast waistband. Both colours goes well with each other and my previous skirt. This skirt comes without a lining and I replaced the blind hem with a twin stitch instead. ⠀⠀ One more week then term 3 is done! Two more garments completed ready to post for the break and two more to complete for term 4. This year is going by fast! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #shirt #style #photography #skirt #fashiondesign #pink

Short skirt with kick pleat and lapped zip. Also featuring a blind hem from a blind hemmer machine that always manages to frustrate me everytime I use it. Skirt is also lined and has a button closure at the top for more security. My ironing skills also needs work. Used this soft, beige fabric that I think compliments the pink lining well. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #shirt #style #photography #skirt #fashiondesign

Lined waistcoat with under-stitching details and welt pockets. Waistcoat was quite easy to make once you’ve got a hang of the steps and it was easier than previous garments I’ve made. Wasted time with making one waistcoat with techniques not quite up to par which didn’t give me a desired finish product so started again but worth it for a tidy and sharp waistcoat. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #shirt #style #photography #vest

Men’s dress shirt made with collar stand, pockets and rolled hem. Doing a rolled hem on a curve is definitely more difficult then it looks but managed to achieve it after some challenges. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #shirt #style #photography

Women’s dress shirt using this bright pink material. Looking back, not a fan of this colour as it slightly gives me a headache. Buttons are transparent to give a see - through effect, also comes with plackets on the cuffs and patch pockets. ⠀ It’s been a minute since the last post as covid lockdowns has me forgetting to post my previous work. Hopefully things start to become normal again with more garments complete, ready to post. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ #clothes #nzft #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade #design #shirt #style #photography

Chanel inspired two piece lined cropped asymmetrical jacket with lined pencil skirt. ⠀ ***⠀ Throwback to when I made one of my favourite garments ever! Took heaps of trial and error as well as constant unpicking but so proud of what a couple of hours could achieve. Main fabric is tweed while I’m unsure of what the other is. Created the design and pattern myself. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Chanel #crop #jacket #skirt #set #patternmaking #design #diy #fashion #sewing #handmade ⠀ ⠀
