I have sent the package out today and hope my secret partner won't have to wait too long... Well my clue is that my partner probably won't get the package for at least a week or so... But I made (amongst others) her top 2 wishes, so I hope it's worth waiting for:))

I think I jinxed something when answering the questionnaire about how the weather is like over here this time of the year. It's usually spring and warm, but we're currently experiencing very heavy snowfall. I'll wait till that stops to go to the post office...

I haven't made anything new, just checking in. I'll be away for a few days, hope I can still finish a bit early since my package has to cross an ocean...

I finished the large today and finally decided what to do for the medium. And for some extras:)

I' have finished one small and am going to start with the large soon. I'm still undecided on what to do for the medium.

My favourite fruits are raspberries and I also love passion fruit and mangos, but I rarely get ripe ones here, so we don't eat a lot of them.
I couldn't say what my favourite vegetable is, I love ALL of them:) but maybe, if I really really had to choose, it would be very ripe tomatoes fresh from the garden.

My favourite music is mostly rock and I've been stuck in a rut listening to the same music for some years because I refused to listen to "the hipster music everyone loves so much." But then I realised I kinda like it, so now I really love Mumford and sons and The lumineers. But I still love classic rock (like Led zeppelin or Pink Floyd) and artists like Leonard Cohen or Nick Cave and some female artists like Amanda Palmer, Fiona Apple or Regina Spektor. I also like electronics like Massive attack, Bonobo... Not to mention my fiancee is in a jazz bass player so he introduced me to a lot of jazz I also like now:)

I don't have that many working experiences: I was a guard in a gallery for 2 days (it was very boring), I was a teacher in high school for two months (teaching design and such) and it was the worst two months of my life (I was 22, they were 15/18. they didn't really respect me:)) and then I was a copy writer for 2 years which was both awesome and really really hard. I'm unemployed now and finishing my college degree and don't really know if I want to continue a career in advertising (I'm not really OK with all the (im)moral aspects of it) or start something new. But it's really hard to get a job here anyway, so I probably won't have a choice once I'm on the market again.

49  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little red dress (quite a lot of pictures:) on: February 20, 2013 03:47:36 AM
I reorganized my sewing space and discovered many pieces of fabric I don't even remember buying. One of them was a quite large piece of this beautiful red wool (I have no idea what the fabric is really called:)) and I immediately knew I have to use it for a winter dress. I had the pattern for this (http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/102010-full-skirted-dress-with-cut-out-bustline) dress from Burda Style cut out from the year it came out, but never got to actually sewing it, so I knew I wanted to use it.



Because I didn't have enough fabric for the skirt part from the pattern I improvised a little (at first it was just a gathered skirt, but I looked pregnant in the dress) and ripped it apart a few times and tried diffrent things until it came out like this. I also let out the sleeves, because I knew I'm going to wear the dress over shirts, so I think it looks better like this. It kinda reminds me of a dirndl and I love it very very much. Can't wait to go out in it and drink some beer Wink



I forgot to tell my fiance to zip me up before taking pictures, so here is a picture of the back with the zipper a little open:)


and a bonus picture of me jumping in it and our cute dog not knowing what's going on Smiley

I have finally organised my sewing room and realised I have the perfect fabric for the large. I should be studying, but the sewing machine keeps calling me... Smiley
