XYT Maxi Dress Hack

maxi 7

Good evening ladies (and gentlemen!)

I’m having a bit of a blah start to my week, since the harddrive on my laptop decided to go bonkers and is now non-functioning. So I’ve spend a good part of my Saturday evening and into the night trying to copy all files and pictures to my external harddrive and I’m currently on my boyfriends computer until a back-up computer arrives Wednesday (my mum will bring an old laptop, we’ll see how that goes). My laptop will be visiting someone who can hopefully bring it back to life.

Since this is the beginning of a new school year here in Belgium, it means that I’m a bit freaked out. Yes, I’m freaked out by non-functioning laptops, I’m a control freak like that. In case you did not guessed that yet.

I managed to take some good shots of my recently made finished XYT-maxi dress hack (I stole the idea from ClosetCaseFiles) I wanted a dress that looked effortless and felt like pyjamas. Mission accomplished.

Shibori Snapshots

IMG_2472 (1024x682)Hello lovelies,

Back in June, I got together with a lovely friend of mine, Lotte (you can check out some of her work here). She’s an amazingly talented person I’ve met when studying costume design.
We talked a lot about how we want to keep on learning now we’ve finished school and how we could do that. It ended up in us getting together at Lotte’s place to try out indigo dyeing and some basic Shibori techniques.

It’s a striped circle skirt

rok 3Good day you all!
I hope I’m not boring you with all my skirts here. I’ve finished this one straight after the 4th of July-skirt and it’s been through at least one washing cycle! I needed more skirts for teaching and I think this one is pretty cute! It’s already been put to the test during the sewing camp Lieke and I teached at last July. One fellow workshop teacher liked it so much she ordered one for herself. I call that a win.

4th of July, Asbury Park

Good evening ladies and gentlemen!

I’m about to present you with a skirt that was cut on my parent’s livingroom floor and sewn on my mother’s little singer workhorse.
While making it, I found it to be a very French/American thing. It might have something to do with the colours in my outfit too!

Giveaway update

Hello all!

This is just a quick update with a question!
A while ago I announced the winners for a fabric giveaway. However, Jeanne, who won the white and purple floral fabric hasn’t contacted me yet.
So Jeanne, can you please contact me before July, 22nd? If not, I’ll draw another winner for the fabric! It’s so sad if it has to lay here unloved!

Happy Sewing!
