New to sewing?

August 16th, 2010

Ruffles and Stuff has a great set of tutorials to start you off.

So if you are looking forward to sewing our future patterns, maybe you should start getting prepared now – go visit their blog and start learning!

Illustrating your design

August 9th, 2010

You have an idea for an outfit but need some advice how to draw it? Katherine Gerdes of Project Runway fame has a nice two-part tutorial on her website.

Check it out – it’s a massive help!

Part one is here: Croquis
Part two is here: Drawing the clothes

We love the gossip

August 8th, 2010

I think I should give a special mention to the lovely people over at Craft Gossip. Since they wrote about us in their sewing section we have had a lot of new visitors and many of them became members on our site, which is great!

What surprises me is that there’s not much voting going on yet. Come on, everybody – this is your chance to decide which pattern we will feature in our “September Issue”! :)

Then again… maybe you girls (and guys) out there are all far too busy working on your own sketches for the contest. Now that’s a really exciting thought!

The first 4 days…

August 4th, 2010

The last couple of days were pretty amazing. On our first day after the launch of Your Style Rocks! we got a mention on Notcouture, directing hundreds and hundreds of fashion addicts to our website, which was fantastic. I have seen professional internet startups backed by real money with less visitors in their first week. :-)

Unfortunately Notcouture removed the link yesterday, for reasons we don’t know. We’re still happy that they helped kickstart Your Style Rocks! On our fourth day we have three beautiful entries for our current contest so we’re confident that we hit a nerve with our concept.

So, pioneers of DIY fashion, vote for your favourite design, submit your own and help us spread the word!

Kisses,

Kim
