When I graduated from Design School I landed the most fun job through my part-time job at a fabric store. The position was in a textile design studio. I met my best friend in the whole-wide-world there - it was a studio full of fun, young people who loved their jobs and had so much fun at work... It was a lot of fun, and I really miss the people to this day.
Recently my manager from that position contact me because she is starting a new business - one she had talked about for years - called Dye It Black. She specializes in re-dying your faded blacks back to their full glory. I love this idea because it prevents "old" clothes from winding up in the waste bin... and I wear a whole lotta black.
So, she and I are teaming up a bit, and will be collaborating on a few black pieces. I sewed these power net mesh panties yesterday. They are great because the netting is stretchy and soft, yet firm enough to hold you in a little bit. Because it is such a stable net, I was able to avoid using elastic around the legs, which helps prevent panty lines.
I also started a striped set, and listed these on Etsy last night. Tops to follow... as well as some garter belts and whatnot...
