What Were the Best Parts of Gone Girl? 
"Just as important as Amy’s diary of marital fan fiction are the various pens she uses to write it. One is a pink stork pen, the perfect inspiration for her pregnancy plot, but another, fluffier pen reminded us of Cher’s pen fromClueless, and even a writing instrument brandished in Legally Blonde by Reese Witherspoon (who happened to produce Gone Girl). As you can see, a girly pen is nothing to joke about, since there are seriously dangerous things being plotted by all three women.”

practising adapting patterns from the basic bodice block

1. basic ‘kimono’ bodice - not a huge fan of the way the fabric bunches at the underarm when your arms are down. maybe thats just cos of the crisp fabric - otherwise it fit everywhere else

2. basic raglan bodice with one piece sleeve - fuck yeah fit me perfectly right up close to the body. will probably be making some open back raglan pieces soon :)

This embossing technique is something i want to explore further. The aim of this was to use something that is purely functional, being o rings and clips, and producing something that is purely decorative. I embossed the metal o rings and clips using a type of shibori like technique, combing…

also researching shibori heat setting technique to manipulate fabric and this is so cool!!!
