Pattern: BellaHigh-Waisted Pants by BurdaStyle

I fell in love with Bella and decided to make a short version. The pattern worked very well, didn’t have to change anything except I used a zipper instead of buttons. I used cotton, dark blue with white pinstripes. I enjoyed playing withe the stripes direction a lot.

One More Thing To Brag About

Kasia Skirt

BurdaStyle posted one more pattern of mine; Kasia Skirt. It was a part of my submission for Alice in WorkingLand competition. I get goosebumps when I see my design on a model.

Naomi

 

I felt that I didn’t have any excuses not to make the Naomi coat,Burda Stylepattern that was inspired by my idea and worn by Naomi Campbell. I really enjoy how it came out, although it wasn’t very easy! It makes a nice summer cover-up.  Originaly I wanted to make it nautical; blue and some white accents, but while fabric shopping I saw this natural tone cotton with white and gold stripes, I Knew it was ment for my Naomi. Since I already spend some time searching for the shell and ship pictures for my nautical embroidery I decided to apply them as well. Overall I think this way is better than my original idea.

Purple Sweater Dress

VOGUE Knitting, Winter 2007/2008

It was a quick knit, taking under consideration the size of the dress. I managed to complete it in one weekend. The dress had to be hand knitted because the yarn was too bulky for my sweater machine. The pattern was easy to follow, the only change I made was to make the length and the sleeves shorter. It looks good over some jeans, but I loved the original look over a dress, so I decided to make a simple jersey  lining. It is a tank top dress with a wide bottom.

And a recent little painting. I was trying to paint on wood, experimenting with it and oils. I struggled a lot, but I have learned a lot as well. Maybe the next one will be better.
