hello! It has been awhile since my last post. I had been distracted by some knitting after I bought a beautiful Japanese knitting book – now the apartment is full of fabric AND of yarn! Hubby is speechless:-)
I have also attempted the Belladone by Deer and Doe Patterns. It is still in the works after I almost finished it and realised it is too tight for me… I guess I was too optimistic (optimistically thinner and belly-less) when I tried the muslin 😦 more about this hopefully, if I manage to summon enough patience to rip the zipper out and make it bigger.
This is another handmade item which I never wore as is but plan to wear it with this bit of styling fix.
I love cheongsam dresses (mandarin collar dress) and made this in linen awhile back, thinking it could become everyday wear in the summer. But the reality is that it takes quite a bit of courage (for me) to wear it a regular day. I think pairing it with a summer knit and white flats takes the “cheongsam-ness” to a more subtle level for roaming around the city:)
