leftovers shorts

shorts - self made
shirt - vintage, from the '70s

never been a neat person..
i'll let the dishes pile up
i'll let the laundry pile up
damn.. i'll let everything pile up
and do nothing about it
until i'm in the right mood for it
(or until i'm called hoarder)
not too neat with my sewing neither
won't stress over wonky seams and uneven top stitching..
but there is one thing i'm obsessively neat about
and that one thing is pattern matching
i just love pattern matching!
and working with stripes and plaid and gingham
and all kind of repetitive patterns..
and these little shorts
(made out of leftovers from this kimono)
were a pure joy to sew

jumpsuit season

jumpsuit - self made

bought a jumpsuit last year
at a flea market
and wore the hell out of it
it was my go-to outfit entire summer
but it got a bit too big for me now
and instead of altering it to fit
i made a brand new one
and i really like the way it turned out
(and have few more jumpsuits on my mind
in different fabrics and patterns and shapes and lengths)
ok.. i admit that jumpsuits are slightly annoying
because you have to strip down every time you need to use a bathroom
but besides that, i'm crazy about jumpsuits
they are like cute little dresses
but you can bend down or squat
without flashing everyone around you
what do you think:
you approve? or i look like a giant baby?

silver net

top - self made
leggings - self made

apparently, once you take a pvc shorts route
there's no going back to floral silks, rainbows and ruffles..
from that moment on
it's all black net, leather piping, liquid silver
and studded booties
