COOKIN’ AND CRAFTIN’

“My day dress is the Style Arc Adeline cocoon dress made in a large-scale geometric print Japanese barkcloth- I love it! Comfy and stylish!  For my night look, I went for the perfect little black dress. I used the Style Arc Marilyn pattern with its dramatic split sleeves and chose a drapey black basketweave poly blend fabric.”

IT’S MELANIE DARLING

“My Day/Work/Play dress is another McCalls pattern, 7119 which I picked because of the Raglan sleeve details.  I have always loved this type bodice because it helps camouflage my rather large bust, I think so anyway.  The fabric I chose is a Rayon Challis from Fabricmart with a small geometric design throughout.”

My Night/Evening dress is a sheath dress with keyhole opening at chest, neckband and sleeveless made with a textured stretch black Crepe from Joann Fabric. The Pattern I used is a vintage pattern McCalls pattern 1031 by Designer Geoffrey Beene from 1968 which happens to be the year of my birth.  So this pattern is almost 50 years old. I have such a love for anything Vintage.

Alexandra Ramos
My name is Alexandra Ramos but most people call me Alex for short. I just finished High School not too long ago and I work in the fashion industry of Downtown Los Angeles. You're probably wondering "She's so young." or "What would she know about fashion or writing blogs?" Well, that's what this blog is about. I learned a lot from my senior year Photojournalism class, learning how to take photos properly, using photoshop, how to get peoples attention with your articles, and I can go on and on about how the class was really good for me in helping me get this job, but this would literally turn into a book if I continued. But, my goal for this blog is to help designers like you find materials for projects and hopefully inspire any future designers out there. At the same time I can learn more about the fashion industry as I write these blogs. I plan to study Journalism in college and fashion design to make this blog more better and creative as time goes on. Hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do.
