Another wonderful Heart Felt giveaway from an amazing creator, asQ Design.
I have been eying up Karyn's work for a very long time on-line. I could never decide which piece to buy so when I finally met her at the New Rags Market last weekend I couldn't resist two pieces for Sadie.
Beautiful orange and grey halter neck from vintage fabric topped off with ric-rac trim and a pretty pocket.
Blue and red fruity pinafore ~ can't resist polka dots at any time with pretty cotton ties.
I asked Karyn to tell us a little about herself and what inspires her.
'Ello 'ello all! I'm Karyn, the do-it-all'er at asQ design.(pronounced 'askew' - being my maiden name, great excuse too)
So blurb away: After doing an enjoyable 3 years of fashion design, I had pretty much discovered I was not that interested in becoming a big fashion designer, but really enjoyed the creating side of things.When my sister fell pregnant a few years back I thought I'd try out some wee kiddies clothes for her, and, it turned me completely clucky. Couple of minutes later and I was having a wee bairn of my own (exaggeration,no offense to my darling husband) Thus beginning a new love for little peoples clothing.. so cute...so so so so cute!! As I was having a girl, and disliked most things pink and pastel, I figured I'd turn my always growing retro fabric collection into items of deliciousness for the children.
One thing that really turned me away from trying out the fashion designer way of life.. was the endless re-creation of garments, all items needing to be exactly the same. I wanted everything to be a one-off item. So, by sticking to a couple of patterns, I can fulfill my one-off-design dreams.
I'm currently up to 279 different pinafores and counting! I source almost 50% of my fabrics from second hand shops and trade me. It's like a drug when I find just a couple of metres of darling fabric. I just need to cut and sew, cut and sew! I mix these together with new fabrics too, I can't deny there are some great prints out there in the big wide world.
