Today I´m going to talk about my second semester  of First Year in ESDEMGA

The last year we didn´t make pieces of clothing.

We had to create abstract volumes. We investigated about fabric.

The fabric had to be white colour or beige. The protagonist was the own volume, it wasn´t the fabric, so we didn´t use a fabric with print.

Some of the fabrics selected by my class partners were cotton, “tarlatana” or flax, among other.

In my case, I chose beige cotton canvas and “tarlatana”.

Inspiration was something  very difficult for me.

Finally, among all the drawings in my notebook, one of them looked like the Japanese tibors.

Japan is a country that I like a lot, its kimonos, its cherry trees… So I got information and I continued on that topic.

In total I made 60 pieces for each design, and the cover, and  researching on the fabric and the cuts, I was creating both pieces.

I decided decorating them with origami.

It took me several days. The origamis were made with “tarlatana” fabric.

The designs were so big that I decided to wear them on two tall boys.

The chosen models  were 1.91m tall.

The Japanese tibors have some covers. I added some hats to my designs.

When I had my haircut I saved a lock of hair and I decided to added it to the hats.

Finally, I made sandals with cotton canvas and the sole covered with string.

I´m very  happy and proud of my projects.

Now I really want to see  this year projects finished, and to be able to  write about them too.






Continuing with the previous post, in this one I´m going to talk about how I evolved in embroidery and how I learned new stitches and tips.

Thanks to the social networks, I discovered a girl named Loly Ghirardi, who is an artist, graphic  designer  and embroiderer.

After a colaboration in a book, she decided to create a blog and a Facebook web, then a lot of projects started to arrive to her.

She has illustrated books like “El diario de una volátil” or “Wonderland” and she has embriodered their fronts.

She left the graphic design and computer world and ran to the embriodery and  handmade world.

She embrioders her own sneakers, interprets Instagram pictures and besides she teaches online courses.

This is how I learned to embroider, thanks to her and one of her courses.




My partner gave it to me as a present and, right away, I watched all her videos.

I´m going to show you some of  the types of stitches that I learned, and the use that Lylo gives them in her course. Finally, the result that I will  apply in my fashion projects.

The basic stitches that I already knew,  she also taught them, and she helped me to improve them.

The “Cross Stitch“, you can make them lined or orderless.


The “Petal Stitch” with what you can elaborate leaves, water drops, candles, trees…


The “Rosetón Stitch“, with what you can create flowers, for example.



The “Escapulario Stitch” with what she made a pineapple.


And without doubt, the two most important for me and the ones I´m going to apply to my projects;

The  “Picot Stitch” with what you can  make set off leaves.



And the “Knot Stitch“, both are very useful for me to represent the moss and nature in my projects.




As I  told you in the previous post, now I´m going to tell you how I started in the embroidery world, what stitches I started learning and what materials you need to know.

Embroider is a technique  that I´ve always loved, but I´ve never been taught.

It fascinates me to watch works made with imposible stitches and so many  work hours. It´s a very slow process, but the result is priceless.

Last year, I decided to intend to embroider, anything, but at least try it.

I started to make abstract  drawings, without shape and with a lot of colours. The result looked like a shapeless map.



The only stitch that I made was the basic, “the plane stitch”, that consists in filling with thread a surface by means of  very tight stitches.

You can make letters, figures, funds…

Another very basic stitch is “baste“, it consists on making horizontal, vertical lines…by means of very small stitches.


You can embroider on any fabric that you want; plane, printed, thin, thick…but the most used are cotton and canvas.

You only need an embroidery frame to embroider. They can be of different sizes and models, I use the round one.  It´s very basic. You only have to put the fabric  inside the two circles and tighten it.

Also it´s needed a embroidery needle, with round or pointed tip. And finally, threads.

The threads can be of different thicknesses, even you can embroider with wool, and there are endless colours to chose, I´ve got hundreds.

The three most known types are: “perlé cotton” that is a thin thread, “mouliné” medium size, and “retors” the thickest thread.

One of the well known brands is DMC, but also there are another ones such as Anchor or Madeira.

The three have very good quality, but DMC is the most expensive and stands out for the wide assortment.

In the next post, I´ll explain you how I´ve learned new techniques and evolved in the embroidery world.

I hope you like it.




In this project, I want to talk to you about my inspiration project of this year and what has driven me to it.

Nature always excited me, I love drawing trees, leaves, flowers, bugs…

When my teachers set the topic of winter, I hadn´t do doubts about looking for something about environment.

I thougt about the type of nature that survives to low temperatures, and I remembered: lichen.


The lichens grow up in wet places and they cover the rocks or the tree trunks.

Moss also is a plant that will take part in my project, now I´m going to tell you how I want to represent it.

I´m going to embroider the garments by means of two techniques named “Knot point” and “Relief point”. In the next post I´ll explain what type of embroidery I can do and how I have learned them.

Through them I´ll be able to simulate moss and leaves that will appear as real. In the next picture I show you one of the proofs that I´ve made.


By now, I still haven´t any final outfit, but the treatment of the fabric will be something important.

I´m going to make the lichen with silicone.

I´ll use “alginato” to make the shapes with real lichens, so I can have its exact shape, then I´ll add colour. They´ll be stitched to the garments.

he animals that survive in snow are covered by hair, but they also have parts of their bodies without it in order to cool down.

In my garments, I wink an eye to these parts without hair, leaving holes in my clothes.

Another technique I´d like to apply is the cracked in clothes, simulating the tree trunks texture, right now I show you the effect. Such as this picture:


I´m very excited about this project, wishing to have it finished and show it to you.



First post

 I`m going to talk about new technologies which are in fashion nowdays.

I´m going to explain two technologies in particular that I use and apply  in garments:

Laser cut and 3D printer.

The one that I know the best is the laser cut because while I was a assistant in the college , in these last 6 months, I have learned a lot about how it works.

The laser cut has two functions: Cutting  or engraving.

You can apply the two functions in almost all possible materials, for example:

Wood, DM, metal, papelboard, paper, all fabrics, leather, methacrylate… Except PVC because it’s toxic.

With the laser cut you can create many things like create holes in fabrics, jewerly, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, cut glasses and create holes in shoes,  cut patterns on paper or fabric, engrave drawings in garments or indications for embroidery “capitoné” (like Anabel or Ines did in their projects), cut flowers to sew them (like Sasha), cut squares to make origami (like me), engrave your brand on any surface for labels, for example in DM or methacrylate…



So, the laser cut has a wide variety of uses in fashion.

Thanks to be a assistant, I ‘ve been able to learn how to use it and to get the perfection. We all should have a laser cut in our lives!

And finally, the next technology, not only applied to fashion but to all the fields:

The 3D printer.

My partner has a 3D printer and he teaches me how to use it.

He creates me a lot of  things with it.

3D printer can make any objet you can imagine.

The printer uses filament and there are a lot of materials and colors.

For example, rigid filament like “PLA” (biodegradable) or “ABS”, “woodfill”, “Firaflex” flexible filament, transparent filament, conductive filament like “grafeno”…




The designers Danit Peleg and Iris Van Herpen use 3D printing in  their collections.


All garments are made with 3D printer. Danit Peleg uses flexible filament.

In fashion, you can also create accessories like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, a piece of clothing, shoes, bags, glasses, ornaments…What would you want.

My partner made a lot of things, for example, earrings, geometric tights, hoops bow ties, pet plates (the glasses are not made by him), brand logos in firaflex and woodfill, lamps, movile case, a prototype of foot, a hanger, figures like Dark Vader or a lizard, pencil-case, flower pot, prototypes…





And new ideas that we already have are coming …




Proyecto final – Final career Project


Os muestro mi proyecto final en Patronaje y Moda, estudios que ya he terminado y que ahora continúo con Diseño de Moda.

I show you my final Project in Pattern Making and Fashion, studies that I’ve already finished and now I’m continuing with Fashion Design.

Consta de una americana con manga sastre, cuello smoking, bolsillos de vivos con tapas y botones hechos con impresión 3D. Y un pantalón negro de licra, con pitrina simulada y goma en la cinturilla.

It consists in a jacket with tailor sleeve, smoking collar, pockets with lids and buttons made by 3D impression. And a pair of black lycra trousers, with sham zipper and rubber in the waistband.

La idea fue: elegancia y comodidad unidas de la mano.

The idea was: elegance and comfort together.

Tuve que elaborar todo el patronaje, industrializarlo y escalar 3 tallas, la 38, 40 y 42. Además de eso, toda la confección y un proyecto de empresa teórico.

I had to elaborate all the pattern making, industrialize and scale 3 sizes, 38, 40 and 42. Besides that, all clothing and company theoretical project.

Cuál será mi próximo proyecto?

Which will be my next project?
