This weekend I learned how to spinning wool with a supported spindle. I made an illustration of it as I am doing the inktober challenge. If you want to se moore illustrations and photography please follow me @mijasfotoatelje
Dress by me.
I often get asked if I make my own clothes. For years, the answer was no, although it all started with me making my own prom dress years ago. People seem surprised at this answer, but I relate it to my reaction when I hear from a chef that he/she went all day without eating: How, when you've been around it and creating it all day, do you not get to enjoy it yourself?
This year I made it a policy to not wear anything, particularly to weddings, that I didn't make myself. It's been a great exercise that's reminded me of why I really do love what I do.
I was hesitant to post this picture at first because you can definitely see my belly, my arms aren't as toned as I'd like, and I really needed a haircut that day! 😋 But, this is the basis upon which the entire business is built: no body is perfect or the same!
As a short and stout person, who never wants to wear what everyone else is wearing, I've had to alter most of the pieces I've ever bought. The fast fashion industry has created molds that can accommodate a lot, but for those of you that have difficulty finding things that fit, size- AND style-wise, this business is dedicated to you!
The response I've gotten from what I've worn this year has been so exciting and rewarding. After years of collaborations with clients, I am reminded of the joy of creating just for myself!
Stay tuned for more pieces! 😉
