Last week I told you I had to find another solution to make for the wedding we were invited to. Actually I wanted to make the “jewel dress” from La Maison Victor (see Flowers and dresses, two of my favourites), but as I couldn’t find a fabric to match it, I had to come with another idea…

Maybe you know already, but dresses and flowers are two of my favourites in my closet. I love to wear dresses and I love to make dresses. And I even love it more if the fabric has a flower print. It makes me so happy. So which dress did I make with this fabric?

After a few years of sporty trends with sneakers, sweaters and sweater dresses, women are screaming to feel fabulous again. I am one of those women and I am so happy with the fashion trends for this fall/winter. It’s all about luxury fabrics, flowers, suits,… And since all the new pieces are arriving at work, I am counting down until the colder days. Today I’ll tell you about a mix I made out of these three trends…

Oh my god, I know it has been waaaaaay too long, but a lot has happened in between. My mom’s house is finally sold, so she had to move out and we had to get the house empty in time. And you can’t believe how much stuff you can collect in 29 years. Especially with two daughters… Well that was one thing why it took so long to write again and… I went on vacation!

Yesterday we went to “Planckendael”, a zoo in Muizen, with baby Lilly. For her, it was the first time. When I was a little, we had a subscription, so we went there really often. Now that Lilly joined our family, Lenz and I decided to take a subscription again and we’re soooooo going to use it :D.

One month ago I was invited to a wedding from friends. Of course I had to make a weddingproof outfit for it. Luckily the burda edition of march 2018 had a great chapter about wedding outfits.

I’m writing this post with Lilly sitting next to me. It’s unbelievable how sweet she is. Just put on some music, give her a stuffed animal, talk to her and she’s the happiest little girl on earth.

Oh no, it has been way too long again… And actually I really finished a lot of new clothes to show you, knitted and sewed. But I didn’t find the time (I didn’t make the time) to take pictures of it. Sorry sorry sorry, but now I’m here with one of the new pieces I made… The “Harper pants” from La Maison Victor edition 2/ ’18.

Spring is here and that means… Spring Cleaning! The last months my fabric and yarn collection has really grown out of hand, so I had to find a solution to store it away in my appartment. Luckily my mom had a vintage chest from her childhood, which was handmade by her uncle. And guess what… She gave it to me!!! I painted it white so it would match into my appartment.

The year I started sewing, my sister gave me a great book for my birthday. It’s called “Droomjurken” (Dream dresses) from Sara Alm and Hannah McDevitt. And as the description says, this book is a musthave for everyone who loves vintage style. The dress I made is not from this book, but from the sequel of it, “Droomjurken, Little Black Dress” (Dream dresses, Little Black Dress) from Dolin Blis O’Shea.
