Brown Suit

Image
This is one of my older suits...I have actually only two of them and both are a few years old. That numberis about to changeto number 3 very soon.
Ovo je jedan od mojih starijih kostima...ustvari imam ih samo dva i oba su stara nekoliko godina.Ta brojka će se vrlo uskoro promijeniti na broj 3
The skirtis prettytight,but it hasthefrillwhich is whyit is very comfortableto wear.
Suknja je prilično uska, ali ima taj lepršavi umetak zbog kojeg je vrlo udobna za nošenje.

Grey 50's Suit

Image
Intentionwas to make a replica of Lilly Ann 50's suit with a slightly different cuffs.

Namjera je bila sašiti repliku kostima Lilly Ann iz 50tih sa malo drugačijim manđetama na rukavima.

I was goingto take a photo ofeverystep of makingthis suit,but I managedto takea singlephoto before startof sewing.Unfortunately, thetime was tight.

Namjeravala sam slikati svaki korak izrade tog kostima pošto je kroj malo neuobičajen, ali nisam stigla dalje od jedne fotke napravljene prije početka šivanja. Bila sam na žalost u prevelikoj vremenskoj stisci.

Of courseI do not havephotos from therehearsalbut asidefromphotographing... the biggestproblem waswith whatto submitthe"umbrella"to keeptheir shape.I triedhardtulle and horsehair but nothingother thanthe basketwith plasticcorset bones did not keep thejacketin that form.
Ilikedjacket as it was but without thebasket, andevenAxwas notthrilledwith it.We concludedit would be bestto eject the basket, to straightenjacketfront, reduce theside hump …

Cream Plaid Ladies Suit

Image
This is a second suit made for Lesley. It is made of cream plaid blend fabric with chocolatebrown piping, lining and buttons. This suit also have two different skirts. I'm reallyproud ofmaking thissuit.

Ovo je drugi kostim rađen za Lesley. Sašiven je od kariranog krem materijala, mješavine predivne za izradu kostima, sa čokoladno smeđom podstavom, gumbima i "piping-om" za koji ne znam hrvatsku inačicu :) I ovaj kostim ima dvije različite suknje. Stvarno sam ponosna na izradu ovog kostima.


Rehearsal...the great question waswhetherto insertbrownpipingor not. But that she already bought brown lining fabric I though contrast piping will be nice addition to pale cream color.

Proba...pitanje je bilo da li ostaviti cijeli kostim u toj blijedoj krem boji ili ubaciti kontrast na sako u čokoladno smeđoj boji pošto je podstava bila smeđa.





Finished! Combinationwith browndetail won. Završeno! Pobijedila je kombinacija sa smeđim detaljima.
