I sewed a hem
You were probably extremely excited to find out what the postman deliver yesterday. I wouldn’t want to hold the suspense any longer :) The first package was from Adina/Bubbles, who sent me this cloud-inspired tank as a present. If you don’t know her shop, you should learn that she paints adorable, joyful things on tees and textiles in general. I got my first Bubbles tee from a dear friend, on the occasion of spring arriving, last year, and I’ve been gladly wearing it since. Now I’m happy to say that my collection has grown and it will keep on growing! Thanks again, Bubbles!
Last week, Roxa/Ruby Blue was kind enough to let me know about a new fox in town. And, what do you know, it was in one of my favourite accessory shops: Maia Grozavescu. I studied the fox for a day or two, slept on it and then decided that I needed to have it. Can a girl have too many foxes? No, not yet. I suppose Maia Grozavescu is my current shop-crush, because I want to order everything they make. The brooches are so incredibly small and attentively drawn, that it melts your heart. And when I receive those lovely packages, I can’t stop smiling. Along with the fox came another lovely brooch, shaped as a couch, with a lamp :)
Finally, for thing-a-day, I worked a bit on an old dress. Vintage, actually :) It was originally made by my grandmother, for my mom, so I didn’t want to make any major modifications. But it was too long for me, and the bat sleeves weren’t exactly my thing, so I cut off some of the lower part and sewed another hem. By hand, because this lace is quite pretentious. I want to wear it as a tea dress (lovely naming, right?) or something, instead of keeping it for special occasions, especially now when lace is so trendy. Here is an idea, below:
