London fashion week!

 I must admit I wasn't as impressed as I usually was with London fashion week. I feel it was missing something and can't help but think its still recovering from the loss of Alexander McQueen especially as a memorial was also held this week. but here a few of the ones I did like.


ISSA
I  love asymmetric cuts and this show was full of them. I also liked how glimpse's of the midriff were seen but some how by only showing above the belly button makes it look somewhat classier.





ERDEM
For the past few seasons I really like what Erdem have designed and s/s11 is no exception. I think its the simple cuts teamed with lace work and floral prints that do it for me.

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prep:
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.




2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
