    Hello, my name is Tawluwt Muhammad and I design clothes as one of my talents. Tell me what you think of this work...
    This piece is in 100% cotton batiste. Instead of mother-of-pearl button I thought to try something what I would consider normal but also different from the usual, so I used wood for the buttons. They are in a black wood that looks like macassar ebony. It was done on the sewing machine and took several days to complete. The buttonholes are hand-stitched. If I sold it it would probably go for about four thousand dollars. ow do you feel about this work?

    It's a really nice design, what about the wooden buttons.Their original -and what would youlike to talk about, because I like to talk about fashion not general things , I think.

    I am trying to go to an exhibition, the Chicago collective. The next onis in August after the february show. I plan on working again and buying equipment and learning to make leather shoes. I want to sell shoes to them. I already have a list of manufacturers and plan on how many pieces I need to sell -I want to sell about 500 to 1000 of them.

    What do you think makes this shirt special? Apart from the odd cuffs, there appears to be nothing unique about it, and the fact that the cuffs are odd just makes them odd, not special. Also, the shirt doesn't appear to fit you very well. Did you use a stock pattern or was it designed for someone else?

    I created the pattern myself and thre are about 30 measurements for the torso and arms alone. The shirt does fit too, have you ever seen a slim fit shirt before? they don't fit, alot of pulling
