One of the things I'd really like to learn is how to sew. I can knit, crochet, cross-stitch and embroider quite good (I think I need to post some of my cross-stitching works as a proof), but I can't sew even if my life depended on it. Surely, I can mend clothes, I even have a litte experience with sewing an apron on a sewing machine (you should've seen those stitches!), but I can't make a skirt or a dress.
It've been wanting to learn how to sew for a long time now. But these three beautiful ladies inspire me so much, that I'm actually thinking of applying for courses this summer. It's a long studying programm (but the best in my city, my mom studied there when she was a student), which'll take me two years to finish, but I really want to be able to make clothes.
So, ladies who inspire me:
Keiko Lynn from Keiko Lynn
This beautiful girl recunstructs vintage clothes and makes new dresses herself for her clothing line Postlapsaria. I adore her signature peplum skirts, as well as beautiful dresses.
Marisa Lynch from New Dress A Day - an amazing blogger who rescebntly finished her year long journey of "365 days, 365 dollars" and made 365 pieces of closing, reconstructing old huge dresses from pile sales. She's starting a second year in a few weeks.
I'm really impressed by her abilities - she takes a dress, which looks like this ...and makes it look like this!
And the third lady was already introduced in this blog few times. She's my friend and a great seamstress Sasha. She's the one who made me that amazing black lace dress for 1920s themed party.
I know that a lot of great ladies I follow also can sew - Anika from By Anika, poet from Seamstress Stories and many other. I just want to tell every single one of you - girls, you are such an inspiration to me! Thank you so much for showing me all the beauty of creating clothes with you own hands :*)
