I would like to introduce you to my brand new love:
It was an inevitability that my deep love of cheap clothing and my endless searching for unique garments would eventually culminate in this: making my own clothes. Thanks to my loooovely parents for buying me a sewing machine for Christmas, and discovering that I have a hidden housewife gene and can actually sew, that has now become a possibility. In fact, it's even become a reality. I worked out last night how to sew a skirt, got all excited and sewed a collar to match, then some bows, then another collar.
And I even went and took some outfit photos for ya'll.
Outfit 1 :
Handmade skirt and collar
Dress (worn as top) from wholesale-dress.net
Petticoats (two of them worn layered here) from wholesale-dress.net
Shoes from here and thrifted white lace socks
Skirt from wholesale-dress.net
I even worked out how to sew everything using my own pattern (secret housewife gene has well and truly taken over!) This I will eventually upload as a pdf (once I work out how to do that) for you all so that you can make your own if you're feeling creative :)
I'll be away and without a computer for new years, so I hope that you all have lovely, fun and stylish times bringing in twenty-twelve! I also wanted to say thanks to everyone reading this (especially those two awesome ladies and frequent blog commenters Kirsten (Elissiam) and Miss Tallulah Porkchop, your comments always make me smile), and thank you to everyone in the fashion blogging world for being such an amazing, lovely and supportive community, and welcoming this new face into blog world this year. I am really looking forward to blogging in 2012!
See you all next year!
