Updated my website at http://www.alexandralloyd.net/ And here are some Prints I’m playing with for a new collection -Skeletons of hulls.
I’ll post some sketches soon.

thestyleinnovator asked: Hello I know this is so random but I am interested in starting getting into fashion design and I want to get into some sewing classes and really want to invest in a great beginner sewing machine and was wondering if you had any good suggestions for me? :) Thank you!

Don’t get dazzled by stitch choices- all you need is a decent straight stitch, maybe a zigzag and a good buttonhole stitch for clothes. (Unless you’re big into quilting) and electronic interfaces are a waste of time (plus it’s better to learn the old fashioned way where you have to thread your own bobbin if you’re going to move up to an industrial machine) Go for a simple design, build quality and a name that servicemen will recognise! A pfaff select 2.2 is ideal, or the equivalent singer or brother. Ask the person in the store a normal zipper foot, an invisible zipper foot and then try to find one metal and one silicone foot!
