I am Amshina!

6 Comments

January 2016 ended on an awesome note for my sewing! I really enjoyed making this piece. Remember one of my goals for 2016 is to showcase more of my pieces by wearing them! This was truly one of those moments where I got to shine. I tried two new patterns and they both worked!  These patterns were self drafted and inspired by an online class I completed and a tutorial on inserting the clutch zipper.

As the title of the post says  ” I am Amshina” My line is truly a reflection of me and my relationship with my wardrobe and the clothing that makes it up. I know this year I will create the wardrobe that I truly desire to have and the clothes that I am proud to wear.

The dress- Self Drafted Pattern from completing an online course working with Stretch knit! 🙂  I used a stretch knit fabric piece I had bought a while back ( From the stash..lol). Simply cut my pattern and drafted two pockets along with the oversized hem.  Serge it all together and Tadah! A dress that showcases fun, function, fashion and fit! 🙂 This took me just under an hour, no joke.. An hour if you mention the ironing! Sewing for myself is very very quick..lol  Always in a rush..lol ( I know I know.. I will make more time to sew for me..)

The clutch purse

So I wouldn’t say this was my first rodeo with a purse. A few years back I actually made a laptop tote bag for a friend and she totally loved it. It was the first and last bag I did at the time. Then along came this  red number. Inspired by a tutorial I watched and dare to try. Well I took my time, work out the details around the zipper and tadah, We have a clutch folks. Love it.. One of my favourite pieces too for January. I plan to perfect these and add a few to my line so watch out accessory fans. A good customize clutch is an added bonus to that functional wardrobe you seek.

Purse and Dress Unite! 🙂 What a power combo. The vision was clear, I just stepped into action and  put my hands to the plough.
