Here’s a couple snaps of the latest dress I’ve made. As the pattern is kind of bold, I went for a simple design, and a maxi dress is something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. It’s super comfortable to wear, and the perfect thing to throw on when you want to dress up a little on a warm summer day. Here, it actually might be too long though – this weekend the temperature is getting up to as high as 45 degrees! It’s probably safest to stay inside underneath the air condition. Or in the pool. Anyways, that Tucson for you, can’t complain!
Have a good one 🙂

I’ve added some new items in my Etsy shop! I found a lot of pictures in my archive of old favorites, and since I still have them I figured I should put them up for sale 🙂
Check out what more’s for sale here!
My latest edition to my jacket collection is this white and blue striped coat. It was my first time sewing a full length coat, and the pattern I used was pretty tricky, but I managed to finish in the end. I tend to underestimate how much fabric I need to get, and for this one I barely had enough. I actually had to add a second fabric to be able to have long sleves, but I think it worked out fine. Anywayzz, if you want to shop this look, click here 🙂

I made this bag a little while ago, and it ended up being my first Etsy sale 😀 Too see what more’s for sale, check out my shop here 🙂
I little while ago my friend Annika asked if I wanted to make her a special dress for her birthday, and the answer was obviously yes 😀 She had a nice concept in mind, and together we came up with the design. With a lot of her help the dress was done by the end of the same day, and I think it looks stunning on her! 🙂

This post was originally really colorful, but after watching the movie Pleasantville I got inspired to do it in black and white. Has anyone seen it? It’s pretty weird, but I kind of liked it! Anyway, I’m wearing all of my designs here; the skirt, the sweater and the clutch. Hope you have a great Sunday!
The skirt can be bought here 🙂

Hey everyone! I’ve been so busy lately with no time to take pictures, but I have made a lot of stuff I haven’t showed you yet. Here is just a little preview of what’s coming soon.
As you can see, I’ve worked a lot more with color lately, which I love! I’ve also started using prints more, which I used to be kind of scared of, but it can really make a garment stand out. This crazy Mexican print I found in a small, but awesome, fabric store here in Tucson. They have a whole lot of prints and textures I’ve never seen anywhere else, so I definitely have to go back and get some more goodies. Hope you have a great day 🙂
Everything made by me:)
One thing I really love making, which I haven’t made in a while, are clutches. They’re so easy to experiment with, and I’m able to finish one pretty fast and move on to the next one. I do like working on one project for a longer period of time, but sometimes it’s just nice to be able to finish really fast, as I can get really restless at times.
I’ve bought a lot of fabrics in different colors, and thought it was fun mixing them together in different ways. I always love doing the detail work the most, and that’s when I feel I can really be creative.
I really want to make a bunch of these, and I think they can be a lot easier to sell than clothes, as you know exactly what it will look like without having to try anything on. And it’s a huge plus that they’re so quick to make 😀 I think I spent about two hours on each of them, and it will only go faster as I do it over and over again.
Some of you have asked me about how the wedding dress is going, and I can say as much as it’s slowly coming together. I’ve recently started the skirt portion, which turns out is actually more tricky than the the top part of it. There’s a lot of fabric to manage, and it’s kind of hard working on it by myself (Ray obviously can’t help me putting in pins here and there when I’m wearing it, as can’t see it before the big day. I’ll definitely do a post soon showing you the progress so far – it’s quite different than the last time I showed you 🙂
Hope you all have a happy Wednesday!
