Klutz: My Style Studio Review

Here’s one book you won’t regret buying. My Style Studio from Klutz lets you design and trace your very own fashions – the perfect practice for all aspiring fashion designers out there!


Style Studio

The book looks like a platform with a white box attached. The box contains colored pencils, a sharpener, eraser and inking marker – pretty much everything you need to create your own fashion designs. It’s also got a book with folder pockets to keep your clings, patters, figure sheet and tracing paper.


Tips & Tricks

While this kit is totally Do-It-Yourself, it also comes with tons of handy tips and tricks to help you along the way, including:

  • Color combinations for different seasons – with examples.
  • How to layer and use colored pencils to get more than just eight basic colors.
  • Easy step-by-step instructions on how to use My Style Studio
  • Examples of techniques you can try to make the clings and pattern plates very flexible in design.
  • How to easily make more tracing paper sheets that fit the white work area.

Exciting Extras

The book also contains extras for tracing earrings, buttons, bows, accessories; there are even patterns you can trace onto clothing. Combined with the clings, which include hair and faces in addition to the clothing, you basically don’t need to draw anything free by hand (though you definitely can if you want to!).


Body Image Bonus

This might just be the best thing about this fab book. At the very beginning, there’s a little mention about how the basic model shape is not realistic. Instead, it’s an ideal fashion shape that doesn’t appear in the real world (so don’t ever expect your own or anyone else’s body to look like a fashion model!).

An Angel You’re like an angel in disguise The words aren’t enough, I guess? I know, you need someone to take care of you who looks like an angel. I hope you are not having a hard time Because I’ll always stay there for you in your heart You can remember me as an angel or forgive me But, remember You’ll always stay in my heart.   Dark Night The night is dark… It shines just like you.. Just because you’re so beautiful… I always think about you… Day and night… Where are you? Are you in my dreams or in my heart? I’d cry for you loud… Just for your true love… You’re like an angel… I want you to stay in my heart forever… You’re my shining star… There are no brighter stars outside… You’re the only good lookin’ star… I always think about you.. Day and night…   A true lover I might have cheated you. I might have kept you in tears for leaving you. I know, I am not a true lover. But, I ask you for a second chance. I know that’d be a hard decision to make. But, trust me I will never do it again. I know, it’s a hard decision to make. But, trust me I will be a true lover for you. I’ll always grant my heart to you. Only for you to give me a second chance.   Say I love you Just to say I love you it never seems enough. I’ve said it so many times But I am just so afraid to say it. I might give you a flower But that won’t be enough. The only thing I can do is give you my heart. And say I love you forever and more. Thank you for reading my post! I hope you enjoyed the poems I made. –Dev

As you know, or maybe you don’t. The word ‘Mother’ is a very strong word, and in this article I am going to show you how strong the word is. So, what’re you waiting for? Let’s start. It is strong word for us, because why not? A mother is who takes care of us, who wakes us up for school and helps us out with our main problems. We’re always rude with our mother, but did we notice? They work hard for us, and yet we still act rude. We’re sometimes angry with her, but did we notice? She stays up all night thinking about us, so all we need is a mother who takes care of us, feeds us and of course she is always there to support us. I’m lucky to have a mother, because she is the best. That’s the word I would always recommend for a mother. Few days ago, I had a fight with my mother and she got very angry, and started ignoring me. She told me that I can use everything without her permission or even do things without her permission. I was like, I am free! I continued to do things without her permission, It felt really good. But, after that I began to feel lonely and I used to miss how she used to scream at me. I used to cry every night thinking about her, she never talked to me, even a bit. I knew the word ‘sorry’ wasn’t enough, I knew I had to do something good. So, I thought of writing her a letter of how sorry I was. But, I never wrote it because I knew that words do not have emotion. I stepped near her, said ‘sorry’. It was a emotional break down for me, I cried a lot, I missed her a lot. I regretted for the things I did to hurt her. I was like, that’s a terrible way to repay her, I was expecting her to forgive me and SHE REALLY DID! I was so happy, I broke down in happiness just thinking about her. The only thing I’d recommend is that, just don’t hurt your mother the way I did, because that is the most terrible I ever did in my entire life. The reason I hurt her with? Oh, well, I was not listening to her. She was screaming, still I was not listening to her, isn’t that terrible? She works the entire night, and that’s how I repay her? Even if she forgave me, I’ll still regret it my entire life. Thank you for reading my story, the last thing I would like to say is that never hurt your mother because she is the most important thing in your whole life. –END–
