Fashion Week Spring 2010: Twinkle by Wenlan
Mon Sep 14 2009
We're big fans of designer Wenlan Chia's eye-catching designs, whimsical prints and ladylike silhouettes, and her spring collection didn't disappoint. While we would wear almost everything she sent down the runway, we definitely couldn't afford it.
In her new book Twinkle Sews (available September 29, $24.99), Wenlan shares, for the very first time, sewing patterns from her playfully elegant Twinkle by Wenlan line. Intermediate sewers who love Wenlan's looks can choose from 25 of her patterns and DIY their own (cheap!) Twinkle creation. Even better, the full-size patterns are included on a CD for you to print out at home, and come in five different sizes so they can be customized for every body type. Too bad the only sewing we know how to do involves hot-gluing buttons onto a shirt.
