1940's War Time Dress


I made this Retro Butterick 1946's (B5281) dress pattern for a 1940's war time murder mystery party! I just happened to have a lovely dark green fabric just like in the envelope pic. 

It was a time consuming dress. With cute little asymmetrical details, fully lined and lots of hand stitching. 

I found a perfect hat on e-bay to complete the outfit. It was a winning assemble as I guessed Agent Scott's secret identity!

Vintage Post Cards


I found these colorful 1920's hand painted photo post cards at Portabello Market in London.

I love the writing on the back,
 Winnie and Dolores what great names!

Japanese Doona Cover


This project has been completed for a while 
now but I still wanted to share it.

I came across a bag of beautifull Japanese kimono off  cuts all in shades of blue. I fell instantly in love and thought that I would create a patchwork style doona cover for my partner since the colours were more masculine compared to my usual bright style.

I was inspired by the delicate hand Sashiko stitching I found on parts of the fabric and decided to do all the stitching of the fabric on to the base also by hand. Now I must say that there were times where I started to regret this decision but am certainly glad that I stuck with it as my partner loved the final result and so do I!

Scarf Tying 101 with Hermes


Spending a year traveling around the world with just a backpack, light packing is top priority. 

After seeing Hermes scarf knotting cards I'm convinced the scarf is one versatile must have accessory.

Unfortunately a Hermes scarf is a bit too pricy but I will have a great time searching the Paris markets for a lovely vintage one!

There are 21 cards but here are some of 
my favourite looks!
