Jade's Profile

About

Hi, I’m Jade, and welcome to my Etsy shop; Striking Kittens.

I love colour, creating my own trends, hearts, and retro/vintage deliciousness. I love house music, food (especially dessert), cocktails, wine, disco and shiny things.

I chose to go to Fashion School when I finished high-school; and once I finished, I had a shiny new Diploma, and a passion to make interesting ready-to-wear clothes.

The lucky designs that do become a pattern, start with pieces of newspaper, and despite getting newsprint on my wrists and hands, I prefer to recycle newspapers than buy bleached paper. I use flat pattern-making method rather than drapage, so I can re-produce most of my designs.

I could never make something and not keep it for myself too, so after doing numerous toile tests with scrappy calico or a cheapy knit and I'm happy with the look and fit, I make a sample for myself. :)

Finally, I make one for you and after laborious photo-taking, pop it up here on Etsy!

Enjoy your visit!
XOXO
