This post is second on a series of three and it focuses on the skirt of my Waterdress. Part one discussed the making of the bodice and can be read here. Shortly put, the aim of this project was to mimic tropical waters in the form of a knee-length dress. Welcome back my dear readers! … More Waterdress, the skirt (part 2)
Yahoo! It’s a celebration. And what a celebration it’s going to be because I have two reasons to party: one, I finished my BA thesis, and second, this blog had its first anniversary May 25th! For that purpose this post is a little late, just like every post this year seems to have taken me … More 1st blogiversary at Dust and fabrics!
It seems that I have successfully returned to a regular blogging routine – but this time by regular I mean once in two months instead of once every other week. Writing my BA thesis has taken much more time that I had thought of, but it’s nearly done and I hope to have more time to focus … More Waterdress, the bodice (part 1)
I have so little time these days that it’s a miracle I managed to get this post ready in the first place! I have been planning on writing about my sister’s graduation dress, but it feels too demanding to concentrate on the dress mathematics that post requires, so instead I chose to write a short … More Phone cover painting
Dear readers, I’m currently working on my BA thesis. It’s taking up more time than I expected and because of it I sadly will be updating this site less frequently than usual. I do have two new blog posts in the making and will be publishing them in due time, but for now studies are … More The spring will be quieter than I thought it would… (but I’m coming back!)
Sometimes I get crazy ideas for projects that I don’t know whether they are possible to create or not… And sometimes it happens too that I’m forced to make something I’m not at all sure about, because the always-too-low budget sets too tight frames for my work. Today’s sewing tutorial falls into both previous categories: it’s about my attempt to sew a petticoat that … More Petticoat with ruffles and adjustable waistband
Even though this blog is not that old, I’ve had enough time to abandon one whole category of posts – that is the category that was originally called Art. I felt sorry for this, so few weeks ago I decided to rename the category Art and thoughts and start (re)posting pictures that inspire me in one way or another. … More How do I find my inspiration?
It’s been two months but I’m back! November was one insanely busy month for me. On top of all the work I had to do for university, I also needed to finish four separate dresses… The amount of time needed to get everything done was quite overwhelming, but luckily I managed to make it to the beginning of December in … More Purple and grey wrap around dress
<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/18292375/?claim=kaea4q5b2uc”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> (More about this thing in the last paragraph.) It’s second Harry Potter -inspired post in a row! This time I’ll discuss the making of my quilted shoulder bag which I made three years ago when I was still in upper secondary school (Finnish equivalent to high school, sort of). … More Quilted bag inspired by Harry Potter (aka the triptych bag)
Have you ever seen something so stunningly beautiful it has given you the spark to create something you have never tried before? I know I have. The last time I remember being touched to the same extent by art was when I saw Pottermore‘s interpretation of the winged keys… Well, if I’m completely honest, it was long … More Winged keys -charms
