Aiste made this most fabulous green peacock print cotton and elastane jersey made up with black ribbing on the neck and cuffs (cut on the fly – as is Aiste’s speciality)
Aiste is showing off her fabulous wide leg trousers made up in floral print stretch cotton sateen using Burda vintage (re-published) pattern #6966, she used the narrower of the two options.
The fit of these trousers is fantastic -partly due to the elastane content of the fabric but also because, for some reason, Burda trouser patterns are cut better than others (in our humble opinion).
Aiste self-drafted this dress and made it up in ponte jersey with yellow contrast asymmetric sleeves.
It’s very cool, and looks different everytime she moves 🙂
Two little sweeties here (like butter wouldn’t melt) wearing their printed brushed cotton pajamas made by Aiste. Love the funky flared cut.
Aiste playing with jersey again here with a jacquard weave heavy wool mix knit. The pattern was taken (and modified) from a purchased top.
The fit is fabulous – this is why we love jersey! and the asymmetric cut makes it interesting from all angles.
Aiste had a moderate case of P.S.F. (phobia of stretchy fabrics) which we said was irrational and she should get over it. So she did.
This is her first attempt at sewing jersey – possibly not the easiest of choices but The Girl Did Good, the stitching is beautiful and we think this might be the start of something brilliant. Well done Aiste!
The jersey is a polyester and lycra (fine, slinky and super stretchy) which was possibly not what we recommend to beat P.S.F but the important thing is it is a fabric you really want to sew. The waist is elasticated. Nice and simple.
Aiste wearing her Black Watch tartan check panelled peplum pencil skirt she designed at college. The skirt has a central panel that can be unzipped and swapped for contrasting panels and the peplum is removable. The skirt was designed to a brief for sustainability allowing the wearer complete freedom to change colours and silhouette using minimal materials.
It is lined in Red Venezia which is visible from the front as the hem scoops down at the back.
She makes them to order so please contact us if you’d like one.
