was less about crazy colored dresses..
but i did make a few
..as well as few crazy colored shirts
year three was more about shorts
sewing for the boy
and food making
enter year four!
feeling super excited to find out what you'll be like!
Monday, March 3
long shirt, jacket or whatever it is - self made
shorts - self made
leather jacket - zara
this skull top
is actually the only brand new thing that i bought
in past year (or year and a half maybe)
did get bunch of flea market and thrift store items
but when it comes to new stuff
i decided i don't really need any
as i can make pretty much anything i need
(well, anything but shoes, really
need to learn how to make shoes!)
and the reason i bought this top
was that it was so ridiculously cheap
that i couldn't possibly diy it for that amount of money..
other reason was the skull, obviously
dug up bunch of those over the past years
so i developed a real soft spot for them
going to a punk rock concert next saturday,
to hear the band i loved back in my high school days
this is what i plan to wear
(this shirt/light jacket/wrap dress thingie
is my newest invention
and i'm obsessed with it, wanna sew it in all the colors)..
i'll have to locate those burgundy doc martens boots!
feel like i'm 16 all over again
(hope i won't puke, though..
that's totally what 16 years old me would do on a punk rock concert..
and hope there will be no bombs, like that last time when i was 16)
Thursday, February 27
pants - self made
mom's, from late '70s
shoes - doc martens
my current obsession - pants!
how did that happen?
i call this particular look
elevator operator chic
Monday, February 24
shirt - self made
pants - thrifted
i've finally found a perfect shirt pattern
after years of search
so far, i tried bunch of different patterns
even drafted one or two myself
some of them looked nice
but not a single one was quite what i was looking for
(and i wanted something that looked
like that mom's shirt from the '70s
that i often wear, and that you can see
and then it hit me!
if i want to have a proper '70s shirt
i should probably use a '70s pattern
fabric is rayon chiffon
and i thought it's going to be hell working with it
but i guess it was my lucky day
everything worked like a charm
and this shirt is one of my neatest makes to date
and i kind of like the pants too
maybe i'll sew a similar pair
as these are not in the best shape..
i bought them last winter
when i was freezing my ass off at the excavations site
they were cheap and made out of wool..
i make the strangest choices when it comes to my excavations outfits
can't think of anything more unpractical to wear while working in dirt
maybe a chiffon gown?
atmospheric diving suit?
i'm open for suggestions
as i'll leave for new round of excavations in may
