November, November

Ugh, this is going to be a busy month.

I’m moving by the 1st of December (so packpackpackpack), while trying desperately to study for my upcoming exams a bit, AND doing NaNoWriMo at the same time. So I probably won’t have that much time to sew, which is horrible, cos I’m bursting with ideas.

So, to keep this blog from dying at a very you age, I thought I’d post some pictures of the stuff I’ve made previously, until I have time to get sewing again. Good enough? YAY

The Graduation Dress

(we're back to headless photos again, cos I couldn't seem to get a picture where my hair was publishable :D )

This is one of my favourite dresses, mostly due to the wonderful fabric and the fact that I had so much fun wearing it. I made it about a year and a half ago for my Lukio (Finnish high school) graduation day, but for some strange reason haven’t worn it since. It always seems to be a little too fancy or not fancy enough or too colourful for the occasion or something. But I still love it.

The skirt is basically a full circle, but constructed out of smaller sections to get the “heaviest” colouring on the hem.

The ties are super-long (163 cm from the shoulders onwards), twisted at the back, wrapped around the waist twice and then tied at the front.

Just look at those colours! Ah!

This is also a very practical dress for parties – if you spill some wine on it, no one will notice! :)

    It’s beautiful! I love the fabric and the colours, and the style is so lovely. I can see your point about it being sort of in between casual and fancy, but why not set your own tone!

    I’ve been thinking about dresses a lot lately, since reading some blogs like Steph C’s 3 hours past (, and now wonder why I haven’t made more dresses. It’s just so simple to put only one thing one, and you’re done! No need to worry about coordinating.
