A Jazzy Collection

I did say I was going to add sewing into my blog…today is the day!

I have decided to start a sewing circle (there is so much community support with writing and reading but not enough in sewing), and I have been given the opportunity to display some of my clothing at the Somewhereto Summer festival.

Since I’ve been sewing for some time, I guess it’s time to challenge myself, so I am going to make my first (amateur) collection – YAY!

I will do a series of clothing based on Toni Morrison’s Jazz, a book which I greatly related to, since it shows off the cities opportunities, whilst highlighting its poisonous behaviour.  Here is a review I did on it. This book certainly has a lot of movement which would look  on clothing, so I will give it a go.

 

Can I do it in a month? I hope so, because that is the challenge. Just to make sure I actually do it I will upload my progress on this blog.

 

Today was material shopping day, here are a few items I found which related to the Jazz theme (I didn’t by all).

Left: Cotton Satin; Right: Pure cotton-There is something about parrots and birds

I didn’t get the names of the above, but they gently represent the Wild pretty well. Which is significant in the novel.

Violet Poly-cotton (What better way to represent the main character, Violet, by using violet coloured fabric? Yep a little typical)
