My Birthday Outfit: End Result!

So, my birthday is nearly over! :( But I had a great time celebrating it and and even better time rocking my outfit. I must be honest though I came very close to just leaving the project! It is very hard when you have curves to make things fit properly (without all your bits and pieces falling out). But I managed to pull it together in the end and I just made a slight change to the original design.

Pictures below! (the lighting was really dim everywhere we went so the pictures are not as clear as I would have liked). Massive thank you to my friend Aira for getting the material as a gift for my birthday! :*

And look what my friend Saphia got for me.. personalized sketchbooks.. whoop whoop!! :D. The quote inside also meant a lot!!

If you don’t already know me, you are probably starting to see that there is always something in the pipelines. This weekend I’m going to be shooting my virtual fashion show!! Remember how my friend Sade gave me the idea after I decided not to do the fashion show.. I know it’s going to be siiick because Robert the photographer from my first shoot is going to be shooting it for me :D

Until next week!

Much love,

My Birthday Outfit: Dumb or daring?!

So it’s my birthday next week [Dec 3rd].. and I’m celebrating it on Saturday. I don’t know if I’m dumb or daring.. lets go with daring.. haha! I have 3 days (along with 2 assignments) to make a pattern and sew my birthday outfit!

I’m using the style of the blue dress but turning it into pants! i’m also going to accentuate the shoulder [something that I LOVE to do] My roommate bought the material and notions as a birthday gift for me so I have to make sure I do it justice.

Here’s the sketch and also the material i’m going to use.. Be sure to check back next week when i’ll have the final garment posted!

 

I know i need to work on my colouring/shading [don’t judge me… i’m a beginner still]

 

Until next time,

Much love,

Emefa :* :*

Roommates Birthday Dress: End Result!

Yayyyy! She loved the dress.. I did too. Just wish I had more time to perfect it but hey such is life.

So I combined the idea of the romper and also the blue dress together to make a whole new dress!

Enjoy the pictures :D. I’ve also uploaded a sketch that I made of the dress

Next up is my birthday outfit! Coming soon

Much love,

Emefa :* :*
