How was your week? Mine was busier than usual. My son helped me make a little video clip for the fall/winter 2009/10 mini collection on Monday. Wednesday, our computer got a virus and I spent the rest of the week trying to get it in proper working order. Saturday was an all day trip to purchase a CD album my son has wanted since last year.
I finished the last two pieces of my very mini fall and winter collection for the 2009/10 season about two weeks ago. Here's is hoping the spring/summer mini collection is finished on schedule. The collection includes one blouse, one shirt, one sweater, and two skirts. Previously, it was to include a pant, but I didn't have enough fabric, hence the skirt. The skirt has a partial flared hem and is made of the same fabric as the blouse, a dark brown imitation suede. The sweater was made from recycled acrylic knit fabric and I love the sleeves' futuristic look. The sweater was previously a knee length open knit "coat" with a knit tie belt at the waist.
Here is the collection together, including my daughter's bag design. Hope you like it. What took me so long to finish you may ask. I was waiting to purchase fabric to make the pant and the sweater, which was supposed to be a futuristic inspired turtle/cowlneck sweater. I decided to use what I had instead of waiting any longer. I'm pleased with the results. You can view the video on Youtube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBoP8RlCUPc
Enjoy the coming week. Till next blog!
