Genet Quarterly Sketches

Technically sketch, not sketches yet, but here's the first sketch for the Genet Quarterly's sewing patterns. It was very difficult to come up with something solid for how I wanted to display these sketches. At first I thought I'd go very technical with them and just work them up in Illustrator, but then I decided that I liked the idea of the sketches having a little more personality, and I've redone one of them as mixed-media, cut out and photographed in front of a painting. I don't know if I'll stick to this for every issue but for the first issue it's working out all right. This dress will also be shown in a maxi length! I have also decided that the patterns will also be offered as finished, commissioned garments in the Genet Quarterly shop, so if you don't sew you can still order some of the fashion for your own use (sewn to your measurements!)

Currently the Quarterly is about 10% to our final goal, which is making me bite my nails! They say that most Kickstarters don't get full funding until about 10 days before they close, but I'm getting worried for sure. Don't forget that even if you don't donate, you can still win some awesome stuff just by spreading the word, and check out the giveaways below (and soon to be above) this post for details!
