Tips to Read Any Sewing Pattern

At the moment you are about to sew a dress, you may be confused about the Size Chart. If you are the one who will wear that dress, then you will find it easier to take measurements. But if you are creating a dress for others, you need to have Size Chart as an extremely important tool for reference. With this tool, whether it's a traditional pattern or a digital pattern, you can find reasonable size.
Of course, you will be the size picker for your customers. Before entering the cutting phase, the first thing you need to remember is to sketch on the fabric. This helps you ensure the size is accurate and safe.

세계가 주목하는 한국인 디자이너 브랜드
Editor Comment 차분하지만 또렷한 힘을 가진. 오래전부터 한국인은 그랬다. 은근한 끈기로 세계 무대에서도 차근차근 족적을 남겨왔다. 패션 분야도 예외는 아닐 테다. 1980년대에 일본의 재패니즈 아방가르드가 파리에서 각광받았다면, 2010년대에는 파리뿐 아니라 런던부터 뉴욕, 밀라노까지 전 세계 패션 도시에 한국인 디자이너들이 그들만의 찬란한 자국을 남기기 시작했다. 민족주의가 배제되고 국가라는 카테고리가 허물어지면서 하나의 가치가 통용되는 지금, 한국인 디자이너들은 단순히 ‘K’를 외치는 게 아니다. 세계가 원하는 그 무엇을 내놓았다. 이 너른 세상에 고민과 창조의 흔적이 선연히 베인 자신들의 디자인을 말이다. 현재 패션계에서 입을 모아 이야기하는 혁신과 지속 가능성 그리고 브랜드 서사의 확장과 같은 비전을 공유하는 6명의 한국인 디자이너와 그들이 전개하는 5개 브랜드를 소개해봤다. 지금, 바다 건너에서 빛을 받아 더없이 찬연한 이들을 주목해보자. 굼허(GOOMHEO) 허금연 굼허(GOOMHEO). 유래가 짐작되지 않는 이 단어는 런던에서 활동하는 한국인 디자이너 허금연의 이름을 딴 남성복 브랜드 이름이다. 그녀는 센트럴 세인트 마틴 학사와 석사 프레스 쇼에서 모두 ‘L'Oréal Professionel Young Talent Award’를 받으며, 유례없는 두 번의 우승을 거머쥐었다. 2018년으로 거슬러 올라가 그녀는 문화, 예술적으로 새로운 흐름을 만들어내는 후보들이 이름을 올리는 <데이즈드 100>에 선정되기도. 지금 유럽이, 그리고 전 세계가 주목하고 있는 디자이너 허금연. 최근 런던패션위크에서 패션 이스트(Fashion East)를 통해 선보인 20 가을, 겨울 컬렉션에 등장한 사이클링 쇼츠와 레깅스, 울트라 크롭 실루엣 등 컬렉션 피스에서도 여실히 느껴지는 그녀의 철학은 맨즈웨어의 파격, 소신 있는 사람들을 위한 옷을 디자인하는 것이다. 결과적으로 남성복 쇼를 통해 선보이지만, 특정 성을 위한 옷으로 규정하지 않는다는 것. 이는 추후 그녀의 행보가 기대되는 이유다. 록(ROKH) 황록 2016년 자신의 브랜드 록(ROKH)를 론칭한 디자이너 황록. 그 역시 런던 센트럴 세인트 마틴 출신으로 끌로에(Chloe), 루이비통(Louis Vuitton), 피비 파일로(Phoebe Philo)가 역임한 시절의 셀린느(Celine)에서 쌓은 경험으로 그만의 유려한 디자인을 선보인다. 2018년에 한국인 최초로 LVMH 프라이즈(LVMH Prize) 파이널 리스트에 선정돼 특별상을 수상하기도 했으며, 파리패션위크 19 가을, 겨울 컬렉션 오프닝 무대를 장식하기도. ‘Artisan Imperfection’. 완벽하지 않은 장인. 그는 스스로를 그렇게 정의했다.테일러링을 베이스로 해체주의적 요소를 가미한 여성복을 추구하는 록의 피스를 보면고개가 끄덕여지는 대목이다. 한 인터뷰를 통해그가밝힌 '아이덴티티와 유스코드는 항상 중요한 그 무엇이었으며, 나는 거기에서 형태와 스타일을 탐구한다.'라는 언급에는 이머징 세대를 위한 진정한 방식을 표현하고자 하는 힘이 느껴지기도. 커미션(Commission) 진 케이 19 봄, 여름 컬렉션으로 시작한 뉴욕 베이스의 커미션(Commission)은 위 사진 속 인물 왼쪽부터 한국 출신의 진 케이(Jin Kay), 베트남 출신의 휴 릉(Hyu Luong)과 딜란 차오(Dylan Cao) 트리오 디자이너가 함께 전개하는 여성복 브랜드다. 세 남자가 이야기하는 우먼즈웨어는 지금 전 세계가 주목하는 아시아의 새 물결. 이는 서방 패션계가 일찍이 획일화된 이미지로 정립해놓은 우리(동양)의 진면모를 그 누구보다 잘 구축해가고 있기 때문일 테다. 진 케이를 포함해 휴 릉과 딜란 차오는 아시아의 다양성을 포용하며, 그들 어머니의 80-90년대 옷장에서 꺼낸 듯한 그리고 동시에 현대 워킹 우먼을 위하는 디자인을 선보인다. 20 가을, 겨울 컬렉션에 등장한 과장된 플라워 패턴 드레스, 어깨가 강조된 재킷, 펜슬 스커트 등이 그것. 최근 2020 LVMH 프라이즈(LVMH Prize)세미 파이널 리스트에 이름을 올리기도 한 그들의 행보를 더욱 주목해보길. 메종 김해김(KIMHEKIM) 김인태 차세대 꾸띠에르 김인태가 전개하는 메종 김해김(KIMHEKIM)은 파리와 서울을 기반으로 2014년에 론칭된 여성복 브랜드. 메종 김해김의 시그니처는 단연 과장된 사이즈의 리본과 진주 디테일일 터. 김인태는 브랜드 아이덴티티를 뒷받침하는 이러한 상징적인 장치들을 극적으로 연출함으로써 예상치 못한 분위기를 탄생시키고자 한다. 우아하면서도 위트 있는. 수많은 질문을 쏟아내게 만드는 이상한 나라의 메종 김해김. 예측할 수 없는 그답게 20 봄, 여름 컬렉션에서는 ‘마이 유니폼’ 시리즈를 선보이며, 다소 정제된 미학을 드러내기도 했다. 티셔츠나 데님 팬츠처럼 일상 속 무던히 활용할 수 있는 베이직한 디자인은 메종 김해김의 또 다른 아이덴티티. 인간도 꽃처럼 아름답길 바라며 옷을 대한 다는 그의 2020년은 꽃봉오리가 만개하는 봄날과 같을지도 모르겠다. 이세(IISE) 김인태 & 김인규 뉴욕 인근 뉴저지주에서 나고 자라 각각 뉴욕 주립대에서 영문학을, 펜실베이니아 주립대에서 금융학을 전공한 김인태와 김인규 형제는 2015년 브랜드 이세(IISE)를 론칭한다. 그들을 디자이너로 이끈 건 다름 아닌 여행이었다. 2012년 처음 한국을 찾은 그들은 감물과 숯, 인디고 가루로 색을 내는 천연 염색을 보고 매료돼 이 같은 한국의 헤리티지를 컨템포러리한 감각으로 재해석한 브랜드를 세상에 선보인 것이다. 한국계 미국인의 시각으로 바라본 한국은 분명 달랐을 테다. 우리의 세대 즉 ‘2세’대라는 의미가 함축된 이세는한국 1세대의 영감을 받아광목 등 우리나라의 원단과 기술을 포함해 모든 작업을 장인 정신에 입각해 만들어낸다. 뉴욕패션위크 19 봄, 여름 컬렉션에서는 광화문 촛불 시위에서 봤던 경찰의 의복에 영감받은 테크웨어 스타일을 선보이며, 한국의 과거, 현재 그리고 미래를 녹여내기도. 이처럼 이세의 디자인은 ‘미래에도 유일하게 명확한 것은 과거’라는 김인태와 김인규의 신념을 뒷받침하기에 충분하다. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
Make A Tulle Circle Skirt
Note to self, when making this and shooting a selfie, HOLD A DOZEN GOLDEN YELLOW ROSES! This is such a fun and elegant way to wear a tulle skirt! Using black fabric tulle keeps it classy without looking like a tutu or a costume. This project requires a sewing machine but that doesn't mean that it's a hard project. It's actually quite easy, as you'll see... What You Need: Tulle Lining (same color of tulle) craft paper scissors elastic (1"-1.5" thick) straight pins marking chalk Step 1 Use craft paper to cut a large square. Then measure your hip measurement out from one corner (just keep pivoting the ruler to make lots of marks and connect the dots at the end to get your rounded edge). Repeat the process from the same corner to find the bottom of your skirt line, but add the waist measurement to your total skirt length for that number (so if your length is 22" and your waist measurement is 6.5", then measure out 28.5"). Cut out your pattern paper. Cut squares of tulle that are big enough to fit your paper pattern when the the square is folded in half, and then folded in half again to make a smaller square that is 1/4 the original size. Using the example numbers above, you would need a square that was 57" wide (28.5 x 28.5 = 57) when unfolded. The number of squares you have determines the number of layers your skirt will contain, so buy your fabric yardage accordingly. If you can't find a tulle wide enough to get a square as big as you need, you'll have to sew two pieces side by side first before cutting your square down to size. Fold your large square in half, and then in half again, and place the pattern so that the corner with the middle of the square is near the waistline of the pattern. Use fabric scissors to cut along the waistline and bottom hemline. Unfold the tulle, and you should have a giant tulle donut! Step 2 Cut out as many layers as you want for the tulle. Cut out an extra piece for your lining. Either hem the lining so it's shorter than the tulle, which is what you want, or serge it on a serger or baby lock machine. Completely up to you. Don't over think it. Step 3 To make your waistband, pin the elastic around your natural waist so that it feels snug but not too tight. Wiggle out of the elastic and sew it together at that point. Trim the ends to 1/2" long, fold the ends down, pin in place, and sew those down to flatten them. Step 4 Use marking chalk to mark 4 equal sections on the waistline of your tulle circle. Do the same with the inside edge of your waistband. Use the marks to line up your waistband with your fabric and pin with 4 straight pins at each mark (you'll pin the bottom inside edge of the waistband onto the top of the fabric layers. Step 5 Since your elastic waistline is probably smaller than your fabric opening (that's measured to the widest part of your hips), you'll notice that there is some gapping where the sections of tulle are longer than the elastic. In that case, just pin the middle of each gap to the middle of the elastic section so you now have 8 pins total holding your layers together. Step 6 To sew your layers together, turn your skirt inside out and sew a few stitches near where a pin is holding the layers together. While the needle is in the down position, pull your elastic towards you until the fabric gap straightens out and sew along the waistband with a 1/2" seam allowance on the fabric layers. Continue this process of pulling the elastic and the fabric straight and sewing until you get all the way around the waistband. Not bad, right? More like FANTASTIC! Enjoy your brand new tulle circle skirt. Where it out in style. Grab some flowers too for that selfie! If you love these kinds of projects, please click here for even more to do!
Best Summer Beach Towel Hack - DIY
This is probably going to be the BEST DIY HACK I have seen/done all Summer! Look at this easy-to-sew project that you are definitely going to want to make before Friday! You know the drill by now... Supplies Needed: 2 beach towels (that are the same) Polyester fiberfill Fabric Velcro Tools Needed: Scissors Sewing machine Pins Instructions: 1. Lay out one towel, and then place the second one perpendicular to the first, lining up one edge. 2. Cut the second towel, making a rectangle that, folded over, will form your pillow. 3. Fold this rectangle in half, sew three sides and part of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. 4. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, then sew the open edge. 5. Cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer, just remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. 6. Fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. 7. Flip the strap right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. 8. Pin the pillow to the unaltered towel, and sew it in place. 9. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long, fold it in half. 10. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel (so that it functions like a bag). 11. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create a pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. 12. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. 13. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. 14. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. Fold the rectangle you just created in half, sew three sides and a little bit of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, and then sew the open edge. Pillow complete! Next, cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer by laying them over your shoulder. Remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. Now fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. Flip the straps right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. You might want to iron your straps at this point. Flipping them right side out can create some wrinkles. Now it’s time to construct your towel. Attach the pillow to your unaltered towel with pins, and then sew it in place. Next, we’ll add all of the pieces to make it a functional bag. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long like ours, fold it in half. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel. All great bags have pockets, so we’re making one to carry sunscreen, sunnies and poolside beverages. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create your pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. You are FINISHED! Now all you need is a place to go, like a lake or a beach or a water park or even your backyard! Click here to see more summer tips and tricks and projects!
Ultimate T-Shirt Revamp
LUV THIS plain ole t-shirt revamp into a cute summer dress! While this one is turquoise, mine is going to be bright and pink for summer! You should totally do the same thing and then share your pics on here! It's all part of Vingle My Summer Collection, which you can follow here. Use a TOO-BIG-FOR-YOU t-shirt and put it on inside-out. This allows you to mark where your shoulders begin with chalk. Just make a mark. Make a straight line from the shoulder mark to the armpit on the sleeve. Cut along the line you just made. Trim off the excess of the part you cut off to make the sleeve smaller and more comfortable your your arm. Pin and stitch to the shirt. Don't freak out because of the gaping hole at the bottom of the armpit and shirt. Stitch up the hole below the armpit. You can leave the sleeves alone at this point OR you can add some elastic to ruche them. Using your zig-zag stitch, sew the strip of elastic on the inside of the sleeve. This should go from the bottom of the sleeve to the shoulder. Don't make it too tight or it will look awful! Using a longer piece of elastic, measure the length and tightness you want to achieve with your dress. Again, don't make it too tight, it's supposed to be gently ruched. Sew it into the shirt to create the waistline you want--as high or low as you like. All that's left is to add any detailing you want such as lace or beads. I prefer simplicity and plan to throw on a cute necklace and some flats for summer. What are you going to do? For more cute t-shirt ideas, click here.
Wearable Sequin Phrases - DIY
Sequins are kind of my thing. Be warned! And be glad I haven't inundated the DIY Community with sequin projects! My mom calls me the sequin princess. Well, she did when I was younger. And lately I've resurrected my obsession with the dainty sparkles. Supplies: sweatshirt sequin trim needle and thread fabric glue marker X-Acto knife (or scissors) Step 1. First, choose a cursive handwritten font and print your phrase the size you want it to appear on your garment. Step 2. Use scissors or an X-Acto knife to cut out your letters to make a template for your sequins. Place it where you want your phrase to be and use a marker to trace the middle of your phrase. Step 3. Place some fabric glue on the left side of the marker outline and set your sequin trim on top of the glue (you want the whole phrase to be outlined with one row of sequins when you're done). Step 4. Once you have one row of sequins completed, use your fabric glue to place another line of glue on the right side of your marker line. Take your sequin trim, make a U-turn at the end of your phrase, and trace your phrase backwards by placing the trim on the glue (you'll want the rows to overlap a bit). When you get back to the beginning, trim your excess and fold your end sequin under the second-to-last sequin (on both the beginning and end of your strand) and glue in place. Step 5. Once the glue is dry, use a needle and thread to secure your phrase to the sweatshirt by sewing every third or fourth sequin to the actual sweatshirt. This extra step gives the phrase some added durability in the wash. Cute sequin phrase oversized shirts and sweaters are perfect to throw over some leggings and make a run to Target or wherever!

마가렛 호웰, 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름 공개
10분이 아깝지 않다 마가렛 호웰(Margaret Howell)이 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름을 공개했다. 아름다운 자연과 함께 어우러지는 스토리는 인물 마가렛 호웰의 어린 시절 이야기, 브랜드가 가진 소재에 관한 철학과 제작 과정 등 1970년 브랜드 탄생 이래 50년간의 스토리를 함축했다. 아티스트이자 영화 제작자 에밀리 리차드슨(Emily Richardson)이 제작에 참여했으며, 단편 필름 공개와 동시에 4월 1일까지 런던 Wigmore Street 매장에서는 브랜드 초기에 진행된 작업 및 개인 기념품 전시도 함께 진행 중이다. 좋은 소재와 군더더기 없는 디테일을 머금은 남성 셔츠에서 시작된 브랜드답게 이번 필름 탄생을 기념한 2종의 한정 셔츠도 오는 4월 발매를 앞두고 있다고. 영상 공개와 함께 그녀가 덧붙인 소감은 아래와 같다. 한편의 다큐멘터리를 연상케 하듯 브랜드의 이상향을 담은 영상을 위에서 함께 감상해보자.  " 저는 오랫동안 제 작업에 대해 질문을 많이 받곤 합니다. 어떤 질문은 대답하기 쉽지만, 다른 것 — 특히, 영감과 관련된 것 — 에 대한 답변은 정말 어려울 때가 많습니다. 제 작업은 개인적인 동시에 전문적인 일입니다. 작업의 핵심인 영감은 다양한 형태로 찾아옵니다. 기억, 사람, 소재에 대한 느낌, 만들어진 장소, 머리속에 있는 이미지까지. 많은 부분 직감, 마침 그때 적합하다고 생각되는 느낌으로부터 생겨납니다. 영감을 알아차리는 것이 바로 일입니다. 에밀리와 제가 이 영화를 만든 이유를 말로 설명하는 일은 어렵습니다. 이것을 통해 제 젊은 시절과 저한테 큰 의미를 준, 그리고 여전히 의미가 있는 사람, 장소, 작업과 이미지들을 되돌아봤습니다. 제가 디자이너로서 살아가는데 중요하다고 생각한 것들을 전해주기 바랍니다.' -마가렛 호웰- " 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
