After months of hard work designing, sourcing fabrics and a few set backs we finally released the spring/summer 2013 collection for ELDELAYMI!! This collection was inspired by the traditional Japanese Kimono, we took the idea of the wrap and the silhouette and developed it into a contemporary┬áminimalistic collection. We hope that you like the new designs!!! All orders can be placed via our website or click on the shop tab above. ­čÖé

Suit yourself

I recently came across this photo and just thought it was genius!

I think it is so true!! Menswear and especially tailoring has become very popular recently. Although I am a womenswear designer I adore menswear in particular traditional tailoring, there is just something about a well crafted 3 piece suit. Ironically one of my favourite TV shows at the moment is suits, partially because of this guy…

tumblr_mhgo7tbIbQ1rpzhh9o1_500Who doesn’t love Harvey Spector? His character on the show and his dress sense is amazing! Iv put together a few photos of my favourite outfits from the show…

Adding a detachable collar onto a top (tutorial)

17 Jan

Detachable peter pan collars have been a big fashion craze for a while now! I recently got a custom order to add a detachable lace collar onto a top. I thought it would be a great idea to put together a tutorial on this as its a great way to add a bit of detail to your tops!

What you will need: Scissors, sewing machine, thread, hand sewing needle, pins.

1

Step 1: lay the collar onto the neckline and mark with pins where the seam ends.

2

Step 2: you will be sewing this into the seam so you will need to remove the beads on the ends so they don’t get in the way whilst you’re sewing. The beads will be handsewn back on at the end.

34

Step 3: unpick the shoulder seam and tuck in the collar, you should have marked earlier where the collar will fit in. Sew the seam, as you can see it would have been difficult to sew with the beads in the way.5

Step 4: cut off the excess material.6

Step 5: hand sew back on the beads up until the seam.7

Step 6: the collar now needs to be fixed in place so pin it down at the neckline.8

Step 7: now hand sew with the same colour thread round the neckline.9

AND VOILA!!! 10
