I believe that there is always a timeless elegance to anything so very carefully and thoughtfully made. I am always in 'aesthetic arrest' when I see people pour their time and heart and talent to create something that's just beautiful. For someone like me who is very passionate about patternmaking and sewing, I really appreciate the quality of handwork in this and many other couture pieces, as well as the opportunities and inspiration they create for people.smile emoticon

The first garment I made with Belle (my Juki high-speed sewing machine) was this lined vest worn by Elgie to one of their corporate events two weeks ago. I didn't manage to snap a solo photo of the finished vest so I'm sharing these photos (one sent by Elgie and another photo of vest-in-progress in the studio) in the meantime. smile emoticon
By the way, Elgie's look styled #byLouberryalso. Hehe!
Happy Chinese New Year!! 🎊

Ms. Harper Lee, author of the book "To Kill a Mockingbird," will be publishing her second novel at age 88. This news brought me back to the time I made this custom-made pillow for a family of lawyers. Yes! And the baby's name is Attyquo, which to me is just awesome because it closely resembles the name Atticus Finch, the lawyer in "To Kill a Mockingbird."
By the way, the book is as amazing and as ageless as its author. Go figure. :)
