I am really LOUSY at keeping this blog updated, sorry as usual, but at least I KNOW I’m lousy at it. ;)
But I bring lots of new photos now, because it is not like I haven’t done anything during my blog silence.
This dress is made out of striped stretch tulle, really nice and heavy thing, not all that stiff as tulle use to be. And there were a LOT of ruffling involved in this dress and a lot of fabric, about 10 meters of fabric, that is about 10,9 yards
Another good thing about the dress is that since it is only made out of tulle, one can have it all year round. It is cool in the summer with just a under dress or as this, with a polo and wool tights in the winter.
The top of the dress is made out a tin wool fabric, I just love this fabric it is so thin that you can wear it in the summer and since it is wool you do not have to wash it at all, one just needs to hang it out to air and it becomes all fresh again. Wool is really a fabulous material.
The jumpsuit is something I wanted to to last summer, but never got around to it. It is made in a wool fabric, but a thicker one so it is a bit to warm for summer, but good for rainy summer days, or autumn, this will be GREAT this autumn.
Late nights when I try to sleep but can not, I sometimes make these small notes on sewing for myself to remember good ideas that would disappear after a good nights sleep. This note is about how to sew the ruffles onto the dress so that the raw edges gets encased at the same time.
And at last, I remembered that I had not yet showed the smocked leather belt on a real person yet, so here you have it on a body!
