Our latest employee profile features one of our favorite models, Jenny! Frequently Jenny is seen gracing the pages of our catalogs, as well as modeling many, many items on our website! She is a total delight, and so charming! Below, find Jenny’s video interview, complete with a quick introduction by Lindsay, one of our photographers, who tells us why she loves working with Jenny!
The picture above is one of Adrianne Lee’s awesome fashion illustrations! She posted it on Free People’s Facebook profile a while ago, and from there we found her website, NinkyBink Boutique! On her website we found a ton of other cool fashion illustrations, as well as some really cute clothes she has designed! One thing lead to another and we asked Adrianne if she would be willing to do a guest post here on our Free People blog – and she was! So today it is my delight to bring you Adrianne’s awesome post, where she teaches us how to easily make a really cute corset tank! (With a lot of her great illustrations too!) Enjoy!
In less than two hours from now, you can have in your possession a corset worthy of envy from Marie Antoinette herself! This corset will defy the idea that corsets are uncomfortable (it’s made of a t-shirt!), it will be adorned with exquisitely quirky pieces of flare, and it will be made by the finest couturier, you! Don’t have a sewing machine? A needle and thread will be fine! I assure you, even if you have never sewn before, this project will be something you can handle with success!
Furthermore, this project was intentionally created to work as a coordinate with your Free People wardrobe! While it’s hot out you might pair it with a skirt and some fun leg wear and as it gets colder layer it with sweaters, jackets, and other tops! I drew a picture to give you a few ideas but I am sure you can come up with more.
This tutorial video will walk you through the steps! Good luck!
Here’s a little scrapbook to go along with the project!
I love this! I can’t wait to make my very own corset tank! Maybe tomorrow… on a relaxing Sunday? Thank you so much to Adrianne Lee! What an awesome craft project!
Also, if you find yourself wanting a corset tank very badly but not wanting to do the work, you can find other gorgeous tanks at Adrianne’s Etsy Shop!
Remember a while back when we asked for your help to pick out a poster from the pages of the May catalog? Well, we have a poster finished, and in a week or so we will have 100 of them, waiting and hoping to come to your home! We will send a poster of the picture shown above to the first 100 people to email their name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org! (One poster per person.) Yay! Free poster!
I’m falling in love with these prints from LilyMoon. Check out her etsy site and start your art collection for a small price. I’m having a thing for balloons right now, so I’m loving those birdcages!
This is my kitty Homer. He came from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society shelter. He is a total ham!
Recently, I moved into a new apartment, and I have yet to get some good decorations on the walls. The fish bowl on the wall is my latest attempt to have something homey and interesting in the apartment. Ever since the fishy, Lou Reed, joined the clan, Homer’s favorite hobby is watching him with extreme interest from every vantage point. It’s hilarious! We caught this picture of him and I just really wanted to share it with you!
I found these dresses on DesignBoom and now I want to make one! Stick felt tipped markers in the little slots, and over time, (maybe an hour) the ink bleeds into the dress. You can wash the dresses out and make a new design every time! Reminds me of those dolls from when I was a kid – the ones that came plain, and with markers for you to draw and color in clothing and such on the doll, then wash them and start over! Hmm…. I wonder if i could get another doll like that too? :)
To read more about the dresses and even watch a little video in which Fernando talks about them, head on over to DesignBoom.
Now, I don’t want to overload you with videos today, but this one is so cute and funny I couldn’t resist…
This video was taken during our shoot for the July catalog in France. Our catalog shooting team and models are getting ready for a long day! It was a very cold morning, and everyone was feeling kind of groggy. When they got to the first place they were going to be shooting, they blasted the car radio and started to dance and get pumped up! Enjoy!
