More than anything, my favorite part of being a clothing designer is having the skill to turn a sketch into a wearable outfit. I’m sure every maker loves seeing this process happen in their own craft, but it still just blows my mind every time.
Scribble sketch of a vest idea for prysm.break.
The photo above shows a scribble sketch and the photo below shows fabric cut into vest pattern pieces. There’s definitely some patterning magic that happens between the sketch and the pile of pieces ready to be stitched together, but I don’t have the photos to prove it. So, trust me. Magic.

I geeked out about pretty much every detail on this vest.
“OooooOOooohhh. Purple and black! My fav!”
It’s a great vest. I love it. All of it. Every dang detail.

My partner freaked out about this vest just as much as I did. I surprised him by hanging this on his closet door! It’s an “I love you” gift (obviously) and also a “Thank you for being a patient fit model.” I’m probably the worst fit model for men’s sized clothing, since I’m pretty much child-sized. I’m thankful he’s willing to help me out.
Perks of being my partner: prysm.break clothing before it’s released.
He was puh-retty pumped about it. He started to rattle off different outfits and layering options. This is EXACTLY how I want people to see prysm.break! I want people to look at the garments and accessories and be able to easily visualize them as part of their own wardrobe.
