Clueless; Screencaps courtesy of Leave Me the White

Clueless is the perfect entertainment while finger dancing through mohair and needles, sloshing down gallons of English Breakfast tea despite it’s waay past breakfast (peeing like Seabiscuit). I noticed that despite the movie being filmed in 1995, Cher’s costume is all so timeless. The sheer shirts reminded me of Karl Lagerfeld’s masterful use of sheer in his collections, repeatedly throughout numerous seasons.

I’ve purchased some black silk chiffon from Clothhouse the other day and was wondering what to do with it until I bumped into this. I’ve ordered white silk chiffon as well through ebay (buy here) too for some white sheer ‘pants’. Can’t wait to complain that sewing chiffon is indeed hell in a tanningbooth.

I’ll be adding answers to 4 questions per post from tomorrow onwards so that you won’t have to read through the whole thing at once. They’ll be gradually added onto the Q&A (originally FAQ) page on the right, just CTRL+F to find your name and the question you asked! Thanks again for the brilliant questions, I really love this interactive atmosphere.

  1. What is with the Clueless and 90s movies that’s going around the net recently? This is seriously the fifth post I’ve seen. Nonetheless, I love my Clueless movie. And I think my favorite outfit Cher ever wore was that one during for her driver’s test. But, you’re right, whoever was responsible for costume, was brilliant! Oh, those white shoes with the knee socks she was wearing in class when she ‘accidentally’ dropped her pen for that gay guy who picks it up – fabulous!

  2. haha, I loved Clueless! It was such a good movie =) I wonder what happened to Alicia Silverstone afterwards! She basically like, disappeared. That movie was so amusing. =) And semi-sheer outfits look great, its half mysterious. Makes us feel safe wearing them at the same time as showing it off! haha

  3. I could go for some Clueless right now!

  4. kinda off topic, but is that Paul Rudd ? squeeee <3333

  5. Gosh, I used to love Clueless, to the point where I would try and give all my friends makeovers. Although I still cringe when she puts the moves on the gay guy.
    90′s movies are great, do you like Empire Records?

  6. i’m glad i won’t be sewing any chiffon. ouch. i have some silky white poly blend fabric i was going to make some tux shorts with but never got around to it. maybe this summer.

  12. I looove Clueless! It was one of my favorite movies when I was younger!
    Until now I’ve never actually heard of Cube 2, sounds pretty interesting though.

    Guess what? I had someone break into my car this night. They’ve wrecked the car pane in the back. At least nothing has been stolen. I wonder what’s worse though – the fact it was pure vandalism or that things like that keep happening with my car!

  16. I love clueless when I first saw it and I couldn’t get enough of Cher’s outfits and the scene where she talked about her classmates’ fashion is hilarious and is my favorite!

  18. Oh, I remember how I loooved the fashion in ‘Clueless’!!! Especially Dionne’s gigantic hats and cute outfits..Cher definitely is channeling some Chanel on those pictures indeed :) so cute.. How about you make som pants like these from Acne?? http://shop.acnestudios.com/system/search/product.asp?id=1371

  19. THAT is one of the most comedic movies ever! Such a classic. Chiffon is such a beautiful fabric to work with. Tricky but the results are definately worth it :)

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the piece! :)

  20. Just wanted to make sure you know that sewing chiffon definitely requires french seams. Can’t wait to see how they turn out!!!

  21. Loving the 90s inspiration, definitely need to watch some Clueless repeats. There’s probably a wealth of inspiration there. Good luck with the chiffon sewing!

  22. clueless is proof that paul rudd doesn’t age.

  23. haven’t seen it yet, but i’ll look into it.
    chiffon is lovely. can’t wait to see the results! :)

  24. Hats off to you for tackling chiffon.

    And for pulling out this treasure of a film. The nineties has a lot of good, despite negative naysayers.

  25. when i read the title of this post i had to really think about where i knew the quote from. Of course it was clueless, how could I forget?

  26. LOL i haven’t seen that movie in ages!! Used to replay it over and over again when I was a kid (due to a lack of other dvds; back when video tapes were still the mainstay). I rarely see sheer outfits around the blogosphere come to think of it… Love Josh. Whatever happened to him!
