Fun Fact

Pressing J while looking at a Tumblr blog or home feed will scroll up on the page, pressing K will scroll down. This is helpful considering a lot of the Tumblrs feature infinite scrolling.

Dirndl and matching blouse just finished (missing apron just now)

I decided in favour of the patterned skirt. Afterall this dress was pretty much an experiment. I purposefully made the dress a little busy with the pattern, lots of lace, trim and tons of accessories. I also tried to give the illusion of an underdress with the blouse and underskirt.

More is more you know…It can either look absolutely epic or absolutely trashy and either way, I intend to rock it.

Tis the season. Ya girl is back at it again making a Dirndl!

I got spontaneously invited to a local (not THE) Oktoberfest.

I’m using the Burda Dirndl Pattern again, since I’ve used and altered it before. The only thing I changed this time is the neckline, which I curved slightly inward to give a bit of a heart shape.

Looking for opinions! I’m really unsure about the skirt part:

Option 1: Solid Skirt

OR

Option 2: Patterned Skirt

In Option 1 the greens don’t match 100%. I don’t know…one moment that bothers me, the other it doesn’t and with option 2 I feel like it’s a little busy, especially with the patterned inset in the apron, but then again with Dirndls this is not necessarily a bad thing…

I just don’t know…

I think it might be cause people like seeing things as they're being made. Makes them more real, more 'yes someone is making this by hand right now'. Finished pieces are al prim and perfect and untouchable. There's a completely different vibe? But that's just me. We have the same issue with drawn art... Maybe consider making a short compilation of WIP photos to post with the completed design?

Thank you kind anon! I really hope I did not come off as brash or rude, I’ve just been wondering for a while what’s the matter with that. Perhaps you’re right. I used to never take w-i-p pics because I (personally) don’t like things looking all raw and unfinished. But I believe I have always been very open about the shortcomings and the flaws in my works, while also attempting to give people neat and somewhat professional-looking finished product pics to reblog. Yet no one seems to want those…

And I know I shouldn’t take this personal (this is my blog afterall) but I really want to engange with my followers and want to know what they’d like to see (more of)

it’s work in progress wednesday!

This is what I call a ‘procrastination project’: something I do when I’m stuck with some of my other projects.I get frustrated easily but not doing anything is not going to get me anywhere so the best solution is finding something else to do.

I bought this dress (really cheap) second hand with no front bows or waist ties (but with a headbow, which I use as a front bow) and I’ve been wanting to make an overskirt for it to fix the ‘empty’ looking waist area.
