DIY Mini Photography Studio

Hello everyone! I apologize for the delay in posting lately! I thought something was wrong with my WordPress account and wasn’t able to login in for a long time. However, the problem has been solved and now let’s talk!!!

So I had to pleasure to visit Jo-Ann’s a while ago and purchased some project paper and created my own Mini Photo Studio! So here’s what you’ll need!

So here’s a picture of my little studio space that I created!

It works for what I need in regards to my business and my YouTube channel! It took me about 2 hours to complete this project. I bought 3 rolls of the project paper and only used 2. In all honesty, it would’ve gone by a lot faster if my wall was a little wider. I had to trim a few inches on the side to get the effect that I wanted. It would’ve been made a little neater but I decided to rush a little bit because I was excited. Take a look at my photos I’ve taken with my backdrop!

So as you can see, the area works out perfectly for my YouTube videos and my photos for my online website. I think this is a useful solution for beginning photographers and bloggers looking for quick and easy backdrops. I absolutely love how it turned out and I look forward to using it pretty much all the time!

I hope this gives you an idea as to what you can do to create your own mini studio. And remember, all of this was well under $20 for me!!! I got the paper when it was on sale at $2.99 per paper. If you have any other suggestions, you’d like to share with me, please share!

You guys enjoy your Thanksgiving and weekend! Stay tuned for more blog posts!

And once again, I will start posting more again, I do apologize for the delay in posting!

Vogue 9253 Pattern Review!

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! It’s Saturday and I think this wonderful day deserves a pattern review. I recently bought V9253 and knew it was on my immediate to-do list. See below my entire review!

kchfsj

upclosePattern: Vogue 9253

Pattern Description: Semi-fitted back zipper opening, attached self-tie and length variations.

Pattern Sizing: 4-26 (I cut a 4)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Absolutely!

Were the instructions easy to follow?: For the most part yes, however once I connected the bodice to skirt front, it threw off the sizing. I’m not sure if I read the directions wrong or if I missed something.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I loved the kimono sleeves! The deep V neckline was a winner for me along with the big flowy skirt. I didn’t dislike anything from this pattern. Everything was perfect!

Fabric Used: Rayon Challis from Michael Levine’s in Los Angeles.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I altered the bodice front piece to create a more flattering look for my cleavage. I have a big chest, so certain style necklines, I have to be aware of. I cut the front skirt panel on the fold instead of not doing that. So in doing that, I had to make adjustments to the bodice front and the top of the skirt. My advice, follow directions! Don’t rush! I also added a thigh slit to add more sexiness to the dress!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: Yes to both! I’m already planning to make more of these dresses!

Conclusion: Follow directions! Overall this pattern is a definite winner. If you’re a beginner, this pattern is pretty basic. So it’s pretty straight forward and you as a beginner shouldn’t have a problem. My suggestion is to get this pattern ASAP!! It’s so beautiful!

New DIY Fashion Journal

collage_fotor

Hello everyone! Hope your day is going well! So I have a DIY for you all today! 

Materials:

  1. Sketchbook/ binder/ journal
  2. Printer
  3. Tape

My little brother’s girlfriend got me a new sketchbook. I have like a ton of different sketchbooks but I don’t have a “fashion journal”. I have a sewing journal but not a fashion journal for swatches, illustration pages, and etc. This journal is a 10×7 sized notebook that was purchased from Barnes and noble. So here are the pages inside my journal.


I got the pages from Designers Nexus and printed them according to the size of my notebook. My entire notebook has hear pages printed and taped into the book. This is useful for fashion designers! Inspiration comes from anywhere and as I designer you have to be ready! 👍🏾 I have some blank pages for any quick sketches as well. Like I mentioned, this so great for fashion designers!

I suggest using a notebook that would be easier to carry around in your purse. I will be using this as I’m visiting fabric stores. It’s a very easy and affordable DIY! If you have some fashion journals that you’ve created, share them with me!

See you guys for another blog post! 🦋
