alison willoughby.



So, naturally, being TOTALLY obsessed with Alison Willoughby for as long as I can remember, I had to purchase 49 Sensational Skirts. Not because I want to sew them, b/c I don't know how to sew. But just to have the beautiful images on tap for when I need a pick-me-up. Because they are GORGEOUS, and that Alison sure can make a hot skirt.

Not a fan of the book cover, but no worries--- I'll cover it in my favorite woodgrain contact paper.

Double yum!

whoah, now that would be a serious sewing project, I think I'll stick to the free yoga mat bag pattern for now. If you DO make anything form the book, don't forget to share!

holy awesome. i'm a marginal sewer at best (i like to sew by intuition, rather than a pattern....doesn't always work so great), but i LOVE an excuse to look at a gorgeous book filled with luscious creations like that skirt in the photo. very cool.

That's totally what I'm thinking Alia... any takers? ;)

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
