Fashion Design Favorites of 2014 & FAQ

I love that I get to share my fashion designs here on my blog, these are my favorites from 2014. I can't wait to add more designs to my collection in 2015. Looking back at my designs, I notice a theme! I love a big bow & silk taffeta is my favorite fabric to work with.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you use a pattern while sewing your designs?

No! I use a sewing mannequin that is my size. I cut my fabric to size using the mannequin as my guide. 

How did you learn to sew?

I taught myself to sew around the age of 14 (I made my own homecoming dress circa 2007!). I use a lot of youtube videos to learn techniques such as installing zippers. 

What Kind of sewing/embroidery machine do you have?

I have a Designer Topaz Embroidery machine by Husqvarna Viking. I take the embroidery arm off when I sew, it is an amazing machine. I also have a Emerald 116 by Husvarna Viking that I love (a great way to start). 

Who does your photography & what camera do you shoot with?

I shoot & edit all the photography for my blog using a tripod & remote. I shoot with a Canon Rebel T3i & a 50mm lens. This year I learned to shoot & manual & it makes all the difference. I taught myself using youtube videos.
