Before I start writing actual historically themed posts I wanted to make an introduction to who I am, and what I’ve made so far.
My name is Jenny, and I’m a 20-something almost graduate in Fashion Technology. Most of my work, because of my degree, tends towards commercial, modern day fashion. However, my real interest is in historical garments and their construction, so this blog will be a means for me to express that interest.
Most of my work for uni has some historical basis, as thats a place I gain alot of inspiration from. My most recent completed collection was based on the black and white films of the 20’s and 30’s, interpreted for the modern retail brand Whistles.
My time at uni will be over in a matter of weeks, and I have yet to photograph the current collection I’m working on. I’ll probably upload it, however modern sewing isn’t something I want to focus on with this blog.
With the end of uni I will hopefully have more time to devote to historical sewing, and with any luck I will be progressing to a masters in it after the summer. But for now this is a short introduction to me.
