My version of a Rose Mortem skirt

As long as I’ve been making clothes I’ve taken inspiration from other peoples design. It’s not like I always recreate something exactly the same as the example I’ve seen but I just like to take bits and pieces of other designs. You can see it as unoriginal but that’s just how my mind works, and if I like something a lot and I can do something like it without spending a lot of money, why not?
Besides, it’s not like anything is original these days, I think I can safely say everything has been done, one time or another.

Anyway, I could go on and on about that subject but I won’t bore you with that rant. Rose Mortem is a clothing company that has inspired more than 1 of my own fabrications. And then I saw this skirt, fel in love with it and found purple fabric. All I had to do was start sewing.

Do you want to see my version?

Pinskull dress

About a year ago I started to work on this dress but somehow never finished it. So I decided to do that first and after that start working on some other stuff.
I really love the skull fabric but it has no stretch in it at all, so I combined it with some stretchy pinstripe fabric and some plain black stuff and I think it worked out nice together.

 

You know about my love for maxidresses by now, right? I did it again, lol.

 

I’m really happy with it and I think I’m going to make a pinstripe bolero with it soon, maybe with shirt and long sleeves because I still have a huge roll of pinstripe fabric, might as well put it to good use, right?

What do you think? Would you wear a dress like this? And if you have any suggestions for a bolero or something I’d love to hear it!

A new Christmas/New Years eve dress, I’m on a roll!

I have a problem, I think I’m getting addicted to Pinterest! I keep finding all these great clothes and recipes there and I just keep adding more and more to my boards.
I found some pictures of underbust dresses some time ago and I love the idea! So I decided to make a dress that had the underbust style and the pulled up detail like these dresses.

Birthday girls have birthday outfits

A long time ago I saw a cute Vive Maria dress online. If I had all the money in the world, Vive Maria would be one of those brands that I would just buy everything from. But since I’m not made of money and that damn money tree in my garden just doesn’t seem to do anything. I figured I’d make something like it myself. I ended up wearing it on the 28th of december since that was my birthday.

DIY: Christmas tea bags

Some time ago I was browsing pinterest and I saw *these* heart shaped tea bags. I wanted to add something nice to my Secret Twitter Santa’s package and I found out she really likes tea, so I made her Christmas tea bags.

I made an Instagram picture of it and got some questions on how to do that, so I thought it would be nice to show it in some steps. It’s really very easy and it makes a nice homemade gift for those tea lovers out there, I think gifts you make yourself are a lot more personal and people always appreciate the effort.
