EN: I am really into a casual fashion. I like designing clothes I can wear everyday. I think it’s even a bigger challenge than making special occasion garments, as you need to join comfort and causality with something that will reflect your style and make that piece stand out from tones of other similar clothes. Everyday garments that I make are simple but with some interest. It can be some small detail, or interesting print, or it is just something in the garment’s pattern. That is the case with this sweatshirt that was created in the learn-as-you-play process, which can be associated to the most of my sewing adventures. I experimented a lot with this garment and it went trough few changes till this final look. I wanted to use animal print fabric on the sleeves and to emphasize it with some black, and I also wanted the sweatshirt to be wide, so I eventually got to this diamond shaped look. Those black stripes on the sides are in fact the parts of my old trousers that I loved so much. Those parts were so suitable here, because of the color and shape they are giving to the sweatshirt with their position and a thicker structure. And that is how my favorite trousers continue their life! I love the result and how this piece mixes the teenage casual fashion with a note of a slight extravagance, which gives it a space to be dressed up a bit, so it fits me and at the same time my younger sister, who poses on these photos. The skirt she is wearing is already featured in this post. Have a nice weekend and enjoy the joy of creating!

SR: Volim da dizajniram odeću koju mogu da nosim svaki dan. To mi čak deluje izazovnije od pravljenja odeće za specijalne prilike, jer je neophodno spojiti udobnost i jednostavnost sa nečim što bi izdvojilo taj komad od gomile sličnih i što bi odgovaralo ličnom stilu. Moja formula za casual komade je spoj jednostavnosti i nekog elementa koji bi ga podigao na viši nivo – to može da bude neki detalj, zanimljiv print ili neobičan kroj. To je slučaj sa ovom duksericom, koja je nastala u procesu istraživanja i učenja kroz igru, koji je u stvari glavni način mog bavljenja modom. Dosta sam eksperimentisala sa oblikom i on se promenio nekoliko puta dok nisam bila sigurna šta želim da postignem. Htela sam da dukserica bude široka i da iskoristim platno animal printa na rukavima i da ga istaknem nekim crnim detaljem. Tako sam na kraju došla do ovog oblika koji liči na dijamant. Crni delovi platna na dukserici su, u stvari, komadi mojih starih farmerki, koje sam toliko volela. Oni su se ovde odlično uklopili zbog boje i zato što daju svojom debljinom i položajem dobru strukturu, a i moje omiljene farmerke su tako nastavile svoj život! Dopada mi se krajnji rezultat jer je uspeo da objedini tinejdžersku svakodnevnu modu sa notom ekstravagancije, što širi granice prilika u kojima se ova dukserica može nositi. Zato ona u isto vreme odgovara i mom stilu i stilu moje mladje sestre, koja pozira na ovim slikama. Suknju koju nosi videli ste već u ovom postu. Uživajte u vikendu i radosti stvaranja!

EN: I love this animal printed fabric so much that it stood for a year untouched because I could not decide what to make of it and not feel sorry that I have used it. In the meantime, I cut just one small part of it for the clutch that you can see in this post. I’d like meters and meters of this fabric, thank you! Anyway, this happens to me often: some fabric inspires me so much that I can imagine a whole collection made of it and then it is hard to make up my mind what to sew actually. And you end up with that paradoxical feeling of happiness that you’ve created something and slight dissatisfaction that the process is finished. By the way, I also made this beige top. Hope you’ll enjoy your day!

SR: Toliko mi se svidja platno og koga sam sašila ovu suknju da je godinu dana stajalo netaknuto jer nisam mogla da odlučim šta da napravim od njega, a da mi ne bude žao što sam ga upotrebila. U međuvremenu sam isekla samo deo za torbicu koju možete videti u ovom postu. Volela bih metre i metre ovog platna! To mi se inače jako često dešava: neki materijal me toliko inspiriše da mogu da zamislim čitavu kolekciju od njega, i onda ne znam šta bih pre napravila od tog komada koji imam. Na kraju ostane paradoksalni osećaj sreće što je nešto napravljeno pomešan sa blagim nezadovoljstvom što je taj proces gotov. Inače, i ovu bež majicu sam ja sašila. Nadam se da uživate u danu!
