Time for Party :)

Here are some party dresses made by me.
I'm not much of a going out clubbing gal, but I still enjoy the dressing up part. :) I like to have something unique and different and that's why I prefer to make my own outfit for a special occasion. I hope you'll like my creations!

Thank you for the reading! :)

Studs and Gems

I finally got my new studs and gems machine and I'm ready to decorate! :)
I found some old shoes with broken straps.
Removed the straps and stitched ribbons, so now I can tie nice bows.
And started with the decorating. :)

... the hills...
... and the matching bag... :)
I have a matching set I can't wait to wear. :)

Thank you for the reading!

Knit Knit Knit

I've been so bored lately, the weather is cold and rainy and there's nothing to do inside but knit. :)
I found a great red yarn with sequins and after a while I turned it into an elegant scarf and gloves set.

I hope you'll like it! :)

... and a white knitted scarf   :)
(my yarn is thin and with sequins, just knit a wide and long piece and sew the ends together)
Can't wait to start snowing!

Long and Elegant

 ... Well this is it :) This is what I actually do - handmade dresses and club wear outfits. I'm doing this for the last couple of years, learning in the process and trying to sort out my own business. Everything I make is hand stitched and unique. I don't use sewing machine, patterns or a measure tape, just pick up some fabric grab my scissors and a needle with tread. Hope you will like my creations!

Glittery :)

I found that amazing skirt in some online magazine and felt in love with it straight away. :)
Donna Karan Sequinned Draped Skirt

All you need for it is black jersey or Lycra and black lace with sequins.
I found the fabric at the local market for £4 all together. 

Cut 2 pieces of the jersey (a bit longer than you want the skirt to be) and sew them together.
Gather the fabric on both sides.
Cut 2 pieces of the lace (2cm wider than the jersey skirt).
The length of the lace pieces must be double the length of the jersey skirt.
Sew the lace together and gather the fabric on both sides again.
Put the jersey skirt inside the lace skirt and attach where the seams are along the sides.
And Voila!

I picked up black boob tube top and nice mesh scarf to complete the look.
I hope it was helpful!
Thank you for the reading!
Have a happy happy day today!

Feeling Lacy

Re-fashioning an old jacket.
All you need is a jacket and lace trim.
My trim is 5cm wide, but you can pick up any size you like.
Cut the sleeves and gather the lace trim around the edge.
Stitch two pieces of the trim at the back and tie them in a bow.

And Voila!
Your old jacket is feeling lacy and elegant. :))
Thank you for the reading!
See you tomorrow with more DIY! :)

More :)

I'm feeling a little bit more inspired today and this is what I made...

... a nice pair of crochet earrings with pieces of a broken bracelet...

... small bottle (from used air-freshener) with branches, leaves, broken necklace, paper butterflies and flowers..
These are only a few things you can make with broken jewelry. Don't hurry to throw everything out, it may still bring some smiles at your home and will keep you busy in a cold rainy day. :)

Have a wonderful day today and a weekend filled with love and happiness! :)

Next on my list...

Continuing with the theme from the previous post next on my list is Claudie Pierlot Bow Front Crepe Trousers. This is my inspiration - simple black trousers with front bow.

I think it looks better if the trousers are not fit, but a bit loose. I didn't really like that length so I made mine a bit shorter.
 All you need is a pair of old black trousers. You can make the bow from the pieces you have left after cutting to the right length. I've decided to attach my bow with safety pin, but if you want you can sew it to the trousers.
And this is how it looks.  :)

Thank you for the reading! Have an amazing day today! :)

High Fashion for £5 :)

We all know what high fashion means and that Roberto Capucci, Chanel, Lanvin, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, Jean-Paul Gaultier etc. are just some of the names in the trend-setting fashion. And we all know what's the price we have to pay to wear something unique and exclusive. Well, I've decided to conquer that! This is my inspiration!
The perfect winter dress!
Lanvin Puff Sleeve Winter Dress

And this is how mine looks!

:)  And it costs me only £5! 
If you love knitting you'll just need black yarn.
(I already had my top from the last winter and it cost £3 for the yarn)
You'll also need black shiny mesh fabric - I've got this at the local market, the price is £2 per meter.
Fold and gather the fabric.
I don't use sewing machines, simply because I don't know how :) so everything is hand stitched.
Attach the gathered part at the top of the shoulder and stitch the
both sides around the sleeve.
And your new Lanvin Puff Sleeve Dress is ready!
Thank you for the reading!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy :)

....So... I've been a bit lazy this weekend and I didn't even get close to the computer. :) I like having whole two days away from internet, games and phones and use the time to relax with nice movies, a long walk with the hubby, visiting friends for a cup of coffee... The weekend is gone and I'm back to realize how much I have to catch up with :))) so many interesting blogs to read, so many online magazines to check out and to post some new inspirational DIY.  So...
Today it's gonna be something really easy and very pink. :)
I have nice mesh pink fabric width 100cm, length 150cm.

Cut 2 holes with width 8cm and length 20cm (this is for my size UK 10 and for a stretchy fabric)
Stitch around every hole. 
I hope you liked it!
