I have this 2 yards to lace sitting on top of my sewing machine since forever. I admit, I really don’t know what to do with it. (Actually, I planned to dyeing it just because its too white, but I’m not really sure what colour I want it to be.) Decisions, decisions!!
Looking at it this morning, I decided I would do another DIY gown. I don’t really have anywhere to wear a gown to, but I just really find it beautiful in photographs. Don’t you?
Underneath is just a black jersey v-neck dress I bought a couple of years ago. I’ve never really worn it anywhere just because of the very revealing neckline, but adding this lace on top makes me want to have a reason to wear it outside of my room!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately! I have been trying to make myself productive for the past few days… but I fail! Oh well. Enough of failures. I’ll just share to you what I have accomplished already.
I have been trying to work with my old-school Singer sewing machine and I’m loving every single minute of it. Beats all those days of hand sewing everything! (I can still feel the pain on my fingers from constant stabbing of needles)
Anyway, I’m planning to put up my shopping blog soon for some of you who might be interested in buying some of my stuff. It’s just a collection of some clothes that I made and some vintage stuff.. Is anyone even interested? Anyone? *crosses fingers*
The print on this skirt is just pure love! I am actually considering on keeping this one, but I think some of you might give it more justice. The skirt is done and I’m just trying to finish the petticoat. (Apparently, tulle is a pain to sew!) I’m also gonna be selling vintage scarves, just because I want to bring scarves back! The one on the photo is my current favorite. It has a little tear on the side but I still love it! The pale colours are just gorgeous!
It’s the return of my pink crumpled poofy skirt! It will also be put on sale, along with that floral vintage bag.
This dress is still in the works. I’m still undecided on what fabric to make the straps with, but so far, I’m happy with it. (See my smile?) The blue and white just makes me dream about Greece. Don’t you just love this combination?
And with that, I bid you goodbye and leave you with this photo of lace goodness and a promise to update more often. Forgiven?
When I was a kid I remember playing with my bedsheets, pretending it was a gown and I’m on my way to a party. A few years after, I realised, I do need gowns to go to some parties. The problem is, I don’t really want to spend so much on something that I would probably wear only once in my life. (Imagine wearing the same gown over and over again *gasp*) So I decided to make a DIY gown that wouldn’t cost me much money and time to make. And when the party is done, I could use it for something else. Believe me or not, I really did this gown for only ten minutes… or a little under that.
What you need:
The skirt and bolero is totally optional, but I suggest you to really have something under this DIY gown to prevent any unwanted exposure.
Yes, you only need one (1) safety pin. This is used on the silk around the chest area just to fit it into place. Then I put on the belt and do random rouching on the top part of the gown. Sorry, I’m not really good with explaining how things are done, so maybe these pictures will help.
Too lazy to iron the cloth! Haha!
For those who are wondering if this gown can hold up for several hours, I believe it can! I was wearing this gown for a couple of minutes inside my room while running and posing and chasing my dog because it keeps on chasing the bottom part of the gown.

The heat is getting worse these past few days and I really think it’s getting into my head! Summer is usually the time I daydream I’m a hippie. The heat just makes me think of gardens, music and carefree dancing!
I’ve always loved the idea of being a hippie. A few years ago, I got obsessed with hippies that I tried to dress and act like one. Well, I failed… miserably. I really don’t think it would work for me. But hey! One can dream.
