Checked shirt

This checked shirt was a birthday present for my fiancé. I reckon it turned out pretty decent considering I made it in secrete when he was still at work or at the grocery store (guess who sent him to do the shopping ;) ).

The shirt’s made from a thin cotton fabric I picked up a while back. It was a real bargain and besides, I’m a sucker for blue.

My camera’s still crappy as ever. I swear, one day I’m gonna by a new one and redo the absolute worst pictures. But until that happens you’ll have to make do with this. At least you can see what it is.

Entrelac Knitting

One day I found this cool knitting technique called entrelac and I decided to make a scarf using it. Sure, it’s only been over 10 years since last time I tried knitting, but how hard could it be? (famous last words ey? ;) ).  Off to the store I went and returned with purple, green and beige yarn. Now, let awesomeness commence!

Well, that’s not entirely true. After looking at the yarn for a month or so I realized that I needed some help to get started. Luckily for me, my good friend Mia offered a helping hand. Dinner in exchange for knitting lessons is a pretty good deal imo :)

Today’s progress! I reckon it’s a good thing I started this thing now. That way I’ve got a chance of finishing in time for next winter.

Grey Vest

Vest – front

This vest is supposed to go together with the grey shirt but it works well with just a plain white t-shirt as well. It’s made from black linen fabric and some grey softer fabric. Don’t really remember what it was but I liked the touch of it and the warm grey was perfect together with the shirt.

There’s a small pocket on the right side of the garment (it’s more visible in the second picture). That little detail just makes me want to go and buy a pocket watch :)

(I know the pictures are crappy.. some day I gotta buy myself a new camera.)

Purple pleated skirt

I made the first prototype of this skirt for a cocktail party this autumn (unfortunately, I can’t show it here… need I say more than “this is the zipper“?).

This was around the time I was watching Black Butler (again?) and first discovered SID (シド). One day when I was randomly surfing YouTube, I found this awesome live recording of SID (which for the record, is an awesome band). Mao-san, the singer was wearing a nice, three-coloured kilt-looking thing and then it hit me. I had to make a two-coloured pleated skirt! When I was done designing and sewing, a friend pointed out that it looked very steampunk. I guess that is what you get when mixing J-rock with Victorian style fashion :)

Enough about the prototype, this skirt’s made for an old classmate of mine. She really liked the prototype and asked me to make one for her as well. It’s a minor miracle that the fugly zipper didn’t put her off :) So thank you for ordering, I was really thrilled that someone actually like my design!
