Passion for Fashion

It’s hard to grasp that only a week ago I was in the midst of the Passion for Fashion challenge. To say that last weekend was stressful would be an understatement. But it was also an insane, wonderful, gut-wrenching and edifying experience. I met some lovely people and was definitely pushed beyond what I expected from myself in the time that was provided. I will try my best to communicate what life felt like for those two days. Continue reading

Catching up to do

Hey all! So after a mild bought of depression, I’m back! Nothing super serious, but with all my submissions turned in and all of my deadlines completed, I was in a bit of a slump. There is always something to work on – but what should I work on? And without a clear goal in sight, what’s the point? Especially when TruTV has marathons of Worlds Dumbest on by the time I get home from work. Then I remembered that I have about ten different garments that I’ve wanted to make for myself forever.

Bar Show Pt1: Ice dyeing

Another bloody hiatus. Admittedly, being this busy is a good problem to have, but I still feel awful going this long between posts. I’ve made it through the two major deadlines for this month, so hopefully I can get back into the groove of 2 – 3 posts a week.

So what has happened in the last week that’s kept me from my blog? Well, the voting has begun for the ‘Party Like a Rock Star’ finals. Continue reading

I’m a ‘Party Like a Rock Star’ finalist!!

As you may, or may not know, I recently submitted an outfit into the ‘Party Like a Rock Star’ Sewing Challenge, presented by the Independent Pattern Company Alliance. I made it to the semi-finalists, and now I need your help. the next stage of this competition is dependent on the amount of ‘likes’ that my submission gets between now ans May 30th. So please, take a few moments and follow this link to my Facebook event page. And if you haven’t already, ‘like’ the Scene Ripper page.

 

If you’re interested, you can follow the progress and final photos of this outfit on my post ‘Finishing moves & Good news!’

 

UPDATE 6/2: Facebook voting is completed. If you participated, you are phenomenal and I thank you for your support. The three overall winners won’t be announced until end of June/beginning of July. Now I play the waiting game.

Switching gears

Good evening on a lovely Friday! Weather finally turning towards spring. So off I go into the basement to work 😐

I’m participating in a Bar Show in mid May, and I’ve got to start getting stock ready to sell. Real quick for those of you unfamiliar with Bar Shows, it’s when a small group of artists get together and sell their wares out of a bar. Awesome idea as libations typically loosen purse strings, and it’s a fun, casual way to hang out with fellow artists and (hopefully) make a little cash. Continue reading
