Just Sew

As I was storing some fabric, I discovered fabric that I barely remember buying…

A lot of fabric.

It may be that I have too much fabric.

I need a Fabriholics Anonymous!

Also I need to finish my projects. Two projects are on deck, and another one is finished and waiting to be photographed and posted here. Soon…

I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.

Finished: “The Devil’s Tank Top”

Take that Burda! Here’s my Burda Twist-front top 05-2013-103. I’ve christened it the Devil’s Tank Top not because of my struggles with the weird instructions, nor because of my frustration with a bodice that I had to chop 2” shorter at the shoulder so the bust sat at my bust. No, I named it that because instead of a great tank, it tricked me into creating a “wearable muslin”… And I hate muslins!

I love this bird fabric but my finishing sucks where I lost patience with the mysterious process… So I’m planning on making this again!
