i've had ideas in my head for some time about what my spring/summer 2012 collection would look like. over the last few weeks i've been sketching and staring at fabric swatches and sketching and staring some more
this week i was finally ready to begin patterning. but the mood had to be set with a pot of tea, candles, and a soundtrack; this american life and democracy now. my soundtrack usually has a beat i can dance to, but lately i've been feeling serious.
some patterning and two prototypes later, i'm pretty close to the cool slouchy trousers i had envisioned. wait until you see the real fabric - it is so beautiful!
