Still Figuring Out

Well, I seem to have made a grave mistake. So, please forgive me as I make ammends;

I never wished you all the best in your new year! If you're returning to school, good luck, especially if you have exams! This applies to uni too! (Although you probably haven't started, lucky!)
If you are returning to work, let's hope this year is better than the last!
And if you're just... existing... have a fun existance :D (patronizing much?)

That done, I'd like to open up to questions. I get asked questions every now and then, and if you have anything you'd like me to answer, I'll make an (Un)FAQ page for answers. It could be anything, whether about my designs, what I eat for breakfast or my favourite TV programme, I'm happy to answer! (Though nothing too intimate. After all the best part of life is finding out about people as you get to know them. Not knowing it all in advance!)

And thus, I manage to break a woman's arm, extrude her legs to disturbing proportions and WTF HOW LONG IS THAT NECK (prepare for longer later!)
design - top with triple neckline and cutout back (different necks - halterneck, one racerback/halter cross, one just kinda, wraps around the arms...), skirt with asymmetric ruff hem, and 3D detail (the yellow things)
worn with - armwarmers, modified wedge heels with spaghetti straps

design - spaghetti strap dress with ruched sides, central drape and split front (This is the sort of piece I would love to just make, just to see how it would actually act on a catwalk...)
worn with - 'Support me please' shoes (My name for my shoes which feature a toothpick holding up any part of it. Don't ask why, it's just simpler than saying "peep toe heels with ruffled ankle strap and wooden vertical thingy")


In other news (sorry if there's a lot to process :S), it's coming up to my birthday and I'm planning on getting a dressmaker's dummy. It'll be for my mother too, so probably needs to be adjustable/come with padding for easy changes, and I'm wondering if anybody can suggest something ^^ Thanks!

Cheerio. Pip pip. I'll be back soon :)
