A NettieLadySkaterMashUp

mash up front

Good afternoon to all!

it’s bright and sunny here in Antwerp (hurray for warm Septembers) and I’m finally blogging my Nettie/Ladyskater mashup. I didn’t had any idea for clever names for this mash-up, so go ahead and help me out in the comments if you want to!

I feel like this is a bit of a strange dress, but it has a strange history so that’s okay!
Remember when my computer died about a month ago? Yes, that day I was up half the night to save as many files as possible to my external harddisk. It was done at 2am the next day. Hurray.
So instead of cursing and staring at my screen to watch my computer transfer the files as slow as a snail, I decided to go ahead and work on this dress. I’ve had it planned for a long time, so I decided that an easy dress would be great to accompany the transfer process.

It’s time to sell sell sell!

Hey guys!

I wanted to share something with you all. As some of you may remember, I’m trying to stashbust a little (mostly failing at that, it’s true!)
In the spirit of decluttering, I decided to get rid of some stuff, amongst the stuff is some fabric. So…

Along with Lieke, Ilse, Anneke, Charlotte and a blogless Erika we are hosting a homesale of fabric, notions and books! HURRAY!
So, if you live nearby you can hop over and buy some fabric from our stashes!

YAY! All the details are here:

stoffenverkoop

If you would like to join us, you need to send an e-mail to Lieke for the adress at bouquetofbuttons@gmail.com.
I’ll be hosting on friday 19th of september from 7 – 9 PM, so you can come and we can chitchat!

Paris fabric haul!

Hihi!

Yes, my computer is back from the computer doctor (who is a genius, truly!)
Between a non-working computer and the start of my first full year of teaching, things have been a bit busy here. I recentely landed a second job, so I’m very happy!

I’ve had multiple requests (I’m putting it like request but it was more like “SHOW ME YOUR FABRIC OR I WILL STALK YOU FOREVER”) so here is my haul!

Technical Update!

designspiration
Hello!

As I’ve told you in a previous post, my computer’s hard drive crashed, since I’ve been borrowing a small laptop from my dad (If you are reading: thank you so much, papa!)

However, it’s not as fast as my previous laptop and does not support photo editing software, so for now there will be fewer posts. Normally I get my laptop back between this and two weeks, so I’ll have some stuff to show you in two weeks! I also plan on showing you my Paris fabric haul and the promised tutorial on sideseams with pockets  and zips, so stay tuned for that one as well!

As you also might find out: I’ve installed disqus. This blog was literally bombarded with spam and I don’t want to spend my time deleting crappy comments.
If you experience any difficulties using disqus, please let me know so I  can (hopefully) solve them for you!

Thank you all so much for you patience!

Happy sewing!

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.
