Out with 2013 and In with 2014!!!

So 2013 has been an eventful year for me.

I moved to a new city!

Where the first few days it rained and rained!  And once the rain stopped, it decided to snow however by summertime it was all lovely and hot.

Then I continued with my dressmaking and made the following dress and kimono.

However this has slowed down in the last few months as I have started a new job in September which meant my kanzashi making took priority over my dressmaking which is a shame!

However these are the stunning kanzashi that I have created.

SO what does 2014 have to hold for me???

Well hopefully in the next 3 months I will be sorting out all the financial and legal details for my new flat which will mean I will hopefully have my own little workroom where can store all my kimono, sewing and kanzashi making equipment.  I am very excited about this!

Restarting my "Making a Dress" series again with the first dress being made being  a 50's day-dress from an old kimono by 2 February 2014 so I can wear it for a vintage fair.  Still need to figure out what sort of dresses I want to make but the list is as follow : -

  • Another regency dress.
  • Wa-Lolita outfit.
  • Aristocratic lolita skirt.
  • Hand muff (okay not a dress but very practical and would be a lovely accessory).
  • Bustle style skirt.
Of course I will be making another kimono as I went on a spending spree on kimono bolts.  As always some of those will be used to make the above dresses.

And I will be looking to finding a part-time job.  I have found that since I started working full-time I miss my sewing and kanzashi making far too much and it is getting to the point where it is actually making my depressed when I am not being creative.  I really hope I can find something soon so fingers cross!
