What I Wore Today...In Drawings

Sorry for the lack of new posts this week...I had a million boring things to do. Some nice too, as my sewing course started on tuesday...we only made skirts paper patterns this week but next time we'll sew a real one.

Yesterday I went buying the fabric; I had a million ideas - I imagined to purchase a bold colored fabric or something like tweed - and then when I arrived to the store and I had to choose I was so nervous I forgot everything and I came home with something totally classic. It's beautiful though and for a first try it's more than ok!

Lately I am so excited for these sewing lessons that sometimes I find myself thinking I'll soon be able to create and reproduce every skirt, dress and top I see and love...I'm totally crazy and irrealistic, I know! By the way these days I constantly make plans and sketches of what I will wear when (and most of all, if) I will become I decent seamstress.

Just a couple days ago I stumbled upon an almost new Flickr group which is a new version of all the what-I-wore-today groups, cause this ones is for drawings only!


Founded by Gemma Correll, a UK based illustrator, in just about one month the group counts more than 1000 members and pictures. There's even a blog where Gemma post her favorites.

And here are some of my favorites...

It's so exciting that you've started a sewing course as well... I totally get what you're saying - I too keep thinking and dreaming about all the pretty dresses I plan to make, but I don't know if I'll ever be that good since we learn how to make clothes from patterns at my course. I don't know how I'd ever then manage to create my own designs...

Allora, hai cominciato il corso? Com'è? Siete in tanti?

Questi disegni sono favolosi... cambiano delle foto! Infatti io preferirei disegnare che fotografare i miei outfit, ma è più rapido fotografare...

What a clever idea! This is something I would get printed on say an 8by10 photo and get framed and I would hang up in a room in a house to give it a fashion feel!

PS) I think it's so great you know how to sew

@ Ariella: we make our own patterns starting from a series of standard designs...hopefully I could customize them a little!

@ L'armadio: ho iniziato martedì e nel mio orario siamo una decina. Abbiamo fatto il modello di una gonna base e martedì la realizzeremo concretamente...speriamo bene!!

@ Dina's Days: I actually just started a sewing course...will see what will happen then!!

These are so fantastically fun! I wish I could draw more than mere stick figures, I would love to document what I wear through drawing. So inspirational!

Hope you have tons of fun with your new fabric, honey - and super lovely weekend!

Big hugs,
♥ Jessica
