Very warm welcome to my blog! It happened so that in addition to all proper life activities, like full time job and time with the family, I learnt to sew and can’t stop ever since. I am writing posts more or less every two weeks, so make sure to subscribe for updates and come back for more!

Square neckline dress
It was a pretty unexpected decision to make this dress. I had planned jackets, vests, and yet here it is a new dress, which is lovely and, I’m sure, will be worn often this spring! What happened recently was me falling into utter confusion about all of those fabrics in my stash and the season…
Herringbone tweed skirt
I wrote in my previous post how I was planning to continue with skirt projects, so here I’ve done that again – one more skirt to my collection! This one was planned some time ago. When I made my most loved herringbone tweed coat there was this pretty decent although very not rectangular piece of…
One more upcycled leather skirt
So my recent black upcycled leather skirt was a blast! I wear it all the time as part of all sorts of outfits and enjoy immensely. When people get to know that it was made out of my dad’s old coat and I made it myself, usually they look astonished, which, I have to admit,…
My sewing plans
When I started sewing, the most magical power seemed to be the ability to make a dress. Before that, at any point in time I had only few dresses and found shopping for dresses being a tormenting exercise. And here I was – able to make any dress that came to my mind! So that was what was happening – many dresses were made. However, lately I realized that I do not wear dresses all that often – some of me-made dresses have never been worn. So I slowly came to the conclusion that it is actually everything else that I need so much more than a load of dresses.
This autumn I started by making few autumn skirts, and this somehow turned into a very nice trend as I’m planning few more skirts shortly. It is somewhat unexpected as it is quite rare that I’d wear skirts. But that’s perhaps due to me not owning nice skirts before. And now this can easily be mitigated! In addition to skirts I’m of course planning a coat or two, a jacket or two, so yeah – regular colder season fashion joys!
