The Return of the Bee Dress
2. March 2021

I promised you a dress two weeks ago and I deliver.Ok, it is a completely different dress, a different method to make it and has nothing to do with my last blog post and my promise to explain how I will copy a bought dress, but much more important: you cannot call me a liar, […]

Reverse engineering a dress with an amazing collar
16. February 2021

The whole last week was bitter cold, full of snow, ice and sunshine and I loved it. Being outside wrapped in multiple layers of warm clothes, wandering through the silent landscape. (Not so fun was/is, that our heater stopped working every other night and -14 degrees Celsius without heater is a tad uncomfortable in my […]

Mending and knitting for Valentine’s love
9. February 2021

It’s a Valentines post and I start it with HATE. You read it: HATE! In this Valentine’s post you will find soft pink items but no cute heart shaped gifts only broken skirts and i-cords full of mistakes. Let me explain.I am one of these persons that has a huge wardrobe full of skirts and […]

The sustainable statement shawl
1. December 2020

Finally, Winter is coming (you may notice I haven’t re-watched Game of thrones for a long time, or I would not rejoice over signs of winter). Outside the air smells of burned wood and coldness, the roofs are white and frozen over and the grass is crisp and hard because every single drop of dew […]

1. September 2020

The wardrobe challange Last week it started my preparation for a capsule wardrobe (ok… it started many weeks month before, but if I tell you how long I need to ponder and prepare blogpost, you will think me a snail). Already during the planning process I noticed this will be big capsule, more like a […]

My undefined wardrobe challenge
25. August 2020

Are you like me? Waking up, doing Yoga, drinking excessive amounts of tea to postpone the decision what to wear and then grabbing the next best thing which you have already worn in some variation for several days? My ‘uniform’ during days which are not so hot that I melt when I leave the house […]

The unobtrusive bee dress – a sewing adventure
18. August 2020
