LACE AND ASYMMETRY

I designed a simple asymmetrical A-line lace skirt and made it in just few hours! Would you be interested in seeing sewing tutorials on www.dilekaspires.com?

IF I HAD TO WRITE a “most frequently asked questions” list about my life, then at the top of that list would be the question: “How did you learn to sew?” Since I elaborated on that question a while ago and I even shared my greatest source of inspiration, I will not dwell on those details today. After I go through those stories with the person asking me, however, the most frequent response I hear is: “It must be great to be able to make your own clothes. I wish I knew how to sew as well.

Yes, it is great. You not only get to make clothes to wear that are fitted to your body type and style, but you also get to enjoy a process that is challenging, yes, but very fun and creative. The product of that process is something that has the potential of being perpetually useful and even outlive you. Of course, mastering the art of making clothes is not easy nor is it for everyone. Even I am still learning. Half of the people who make that comment are just expressing their appreciation of what I do and they don’t have the desire to actually learn how to make clothes. But I can see that the other half would genuinely like to learn.

So here is a question:

I am thinking of making sewing tutorials that will gradually become more difficult.

Would you be interested in something like that?

Skirt design: by me
Bag: Mona
Sandals: Mango
Pearl earrings, necklace, and bracelet: heirloom

You can learn from me and by focusing on more simple designs like this asymmetrical A-line skirt, I can show you how you can make a versatile piece in just few hours. When I saw this fabric at the fabric store, I immediately knew that I wanted to make an asymmetrical midi skirt that would look effortlessly elegant and that could be dressed up and down according to the occasion. I wanted to preserve the lace pattern and although my initial idea included a scalloped bottom that would follow the pattern, my final design was adapted to make it look as simple and as clean as possible. And trust me, the design is so simple, I finished it in half a day! While watching Korean dramas!

So, what do you say? Are you interested?
