Floral Fuss


I enjoy looking at pictures of people making something, especially clothes. Like a DIY. I find them interesting and somewhat, soothing. A few days ago, I altered one of my dresses which seriously needs some alteration on the sleeves or you may find it here. I think the length of it is really weird. It just stops there with not much of a surprise like a puff or something. It looked like an, Italian football jersey. Yes, that's the word. Now that it is shorter, like a capped sleeve, it's so much better but I haven't planned on wearing them just yet.
Anyway, these minor alterations are nothing compared to those who make things, like Childhood Flames' most talked about poofy skirt tutorial last year (I think). I was amazed and still am. I'm just too lazy making something from scratch. I'd rather just buy them LOL.

I love the pattern here. And when you paired it with the brogues.. I'm incredibly rubbish with sewing machines, I've used it once in my life to make a dress which is basically a tube of fabric.. haha
It would be mine

I have a machine but it's been on the to-do-list of getting repaired for like 6 months!

So, I only DIY if it means I can shred or rip! Lucky that Balmain was still showing riped/holey tops....I get away with non-sewing for a season longer!

Yay you though, can't wait to see it's rebirth!

I know, it's like 'be nice to me, I'm giving you money...it pays your wages, keeps your shop open and I'm not being nasty or rude, I'm being saintly! Why treat me like crap?'
