This is not the 90's

You know what grinds me?

When people say something that just isn't true. Lately, I've been hearing a lot of untruthful things. I've heard a lot of bull shit and it's safe to say the "90's fad" is the worst of them. Yes, I've loathed this fashion "movement" for some time now. I don't know who started it, but I wish I did... I can't stand these failed attempts to portray 90's fashion; these garments, these "styles" are not the 90's.

How to make design dreams a reality

How can I sew my own clothing designs? 

If you're like me you love to sew your own clothing, it's a creative outlet that affords you a sense of individuality. There is nothing more satisfying than designing your own clothes, but how do you get started? Many of us shrivel in horror at the thought of pattern drafting.

There are obviously some mathematics involved, which I also shy away from as I am somewhat dyslexic and abhor math. Many people have the benefit of taking classes on pattern drafting, the only one available here is at a local college. I would love to take it but I'm not terribly interested in returning to post secondary school for another four years, further increasing my student debt. I will continue to scour the internet for pattern drafting tips and tutorials and hopefully one day I will be able to share that information with you, for now I have the second best approach to designing your own clothes.
