Runway Show

My goal is to deliver a runway show for charity, the catch is that I will be designing and sewing the entire collection. Yes, you read correctly, I will design all the pieces of a collection and sewing them together. How much experience do I have is something you might ask yourself, and the answer is none. I have hemmed my pants, but any experienced seamstress would want to re-hem them. I love Katherine Middleton's fashion style, and I want to create a "Middle Class Princess" collection inspired by her.

I have to start by taking sewing lessons and pattern reading classes. And whatever else comes with it.

The only good news to this is that I come from a generation of beautiful, artistic women. My mother is a seamstress who has created beautiful wedding dresses. My grandma and great grandma made my mother's amazing wedding dress. So, part of the reason to do this is to carry the tradition of making beautiful clothes and not letting it end with me.

I don't have a timeline like Amber does, but I'm going to start by making a skirt from a pattern by the end of February. Wish me luck!


  1. I think this sounds like a trip to Spain for sewing lessons from mom is in order!
