Maybe it’s due to the excessive consumption of Penny Dreadful episodes these days that I needed to wear my silk scarf in an Ethan Chandler kind of way. Maybe it’s the slightly cold weather that pronounces the end of summer and reminds me to wear my beloved scarf again before I have to swap it for a cozy wool scarf.
After presenting some of my sewing efforts here on the blog, it seems that most of you don’t have the confidence to try more complex DIY-projects like this. That’s a pity because sewing can be lots of fun and you’ll be rewarded with a unique piece!
In order to share my DIY-excitement with you, I figured that a sewing project for beginners would be something nice to feature here. The project I chose was the one I restarted sewing with a couple of weeks ago as well – a super easy tote bag. So get out your sewing machine and let’s get started.
Trends are kind of stupid. Stupid for your purse, stupid for your self esteem and stupid for the environment as well. But trends become really really stupid when they’re not the result of a certain amount of people sharing the same taste but are made up by fashion houses. I used to write a lot about trends here on the blog – and what else should you cover when your blog is based on your ever-changing closet? I wrote about sporty chic, single earrings and high heels but always preferred to wear jeans and a shirt.
OUTFIT. That blouse? Well, it used to be a shirt in its first life. When I discovered it on the rack of a second hand store, I was looking for fabric I could use for a new sewing project that I discovered on Pinterest. The checkered shirt in size XXXL seemed to be just the right foundation for one of my most ingenious pieces of clothing.
