Leather elbow patch with studs to a cable knit sweater. It was a little tough squishing the sleeve up the sewing machine, but I love the way it turned out. Inspired from this.

Work has been busy, so that means less time to make and design stuff for me. A lot of my ideas have been on paper, and I’ve had no time to create anything. I have an idea I’ve been playing around with in my head for awhile though. Hopefully this holiday season will give me a bit of time to work on it.

My last minute halloween costume! I was a paper doll, hehe. I just used some poster board from the dollar store and cut everything out and taped it together. I wore a black dress and then used string to tie the “dress” around my waist. I put the purse on my actual purse, so it was “functioning”. I made hairbows and taped them to my hair ties.
I took some scrap vinyl lying around to make this quick DIY. I was feening for one of these for awhile, and took a break from working for this quick DIY.

Weekends go by too quickly. I have so many ideas and I need to get on them, but the last thing I want to do when I get a break off of work is look at another computer screen for hours…

sweatshirt, updated

I stole a sweatshirt off of my boyfriend. Added some rain drops and floral elbow patches (extra fabric from the peplum top). No one says no to elbow patches.

I have too many projects I want to do. Although summer may be over, I still have a pile of fabric to make make make. Excited. Can’t wait.

Awhile back my friend had leftover fabric and left some for me. It was very bright yellow. I had no idea what to do with it, and kept it for several months.


I shopped around online for clothes in the color yellow to inspire my hunt. I fell in love with this dress, but I realized the reason why I liked it was the mustard color. So I dyed the fabric with a dark brown dye… only for it to turn out like a gross muddy army green. It looked ugly and discouraged me from moving forward with the pattern… So I tried again, only this time using bleach to lighten the color up a bit… and it turned into a lovely mustard color! Thank you bleach! I then started down the long road of making the dress, using the same princess seam pattern from my last refashion. I’m not usually one to start from scratch. I like to buy things and take it in there, shorten it a bit here… but i felt that a circle skirt is easy enough to try out.


It took me all weekend to figure out but I’m so happy with it. I had trouble with the armpit fitting so I had to pin and repin. Every day I try to research and look up sewing tutorials just to keep myself inspired and understand how to finish a dress so that it looks professional. The inside is a hot mess though as I haven’t finished all the seams properly, but since its a knit material, I don’t have to! And yesterday I bought this lovely belt at target for $5.

See that pink fabric in the back? Eventually it’ll turn into something… I hope. Coming soon.
