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!
