How to Wear It

Natalie Zee Drieu of CRAFT Magazine sat in on a Stitches West presentation I did for SWTC with their stylist, Lena Walker Smith.  The subject was: how to wear knitwear depending on your personal style, body type, and the look you want to create…This perhaps, would’ve been an even more effective lesson if I myself, didn’t look like a hobbit and/or some kind of knitting jedi in the pictures.  I swear that crocheted coat’s really great in person!   But I digress…
Anyway, Natalie (she’s always so supportive!) was kind enough to turn an edited version into a video podcast for the CRAFT blog.  Click here to see it!

    You did not look like a “hobbit and/or some kind of knitting jedi” I thought you looked adorable!

    Great presentation! Nice to meet you in person. Loved your show and I’m so sorry to hear it end.

    Happy Knitting

    What a great presentation. Very eye- opening to see the same garment presented different ways and on different body types. I would be interested in seeing the same garment on different age groups, too. Thanks for sharing the video on your blog.

    The still photos on the linked site do more justice to you beautiful crocheted coat – the color is great on you.

    Liz–We did that a bit showing mother and daughter in the same top, but not as much as we’d planned. Our older model ended up not being able to make it to the presentation. Anyway, I totally agree that it would’ve been great to see more age variance.

    Ana–Thanks–nice meeting you, too!

    This was so awesome. LOVED IT. The video I saw was an abbreviated version of your talk, so you may have covered this… do you have any fashion tips for those whose probem area is the midsection? I’m a size 6 and fairly busty, but it’s my stomach that I want to camouflage! What will work for those of us who aren’t full apple-shaped, but have tummy issues?
