Long time no see! My life has taken a crazy busy turn these past 6 months, so while I would often think about blogging this or that, it just never turned into action.
A while ago I realized that the hamster wheel of work - housework -
very little sleep wasn't sustainable, I decided to make a whole lot of gradual lifestyle changes and to go back to my hobbies and rebuilding my online presence.
I am generally not very confortable discussing turbulent changes in my life as they happen, but I suppose I will make a couple retrospective posts once I can look back on all the craziness from a different perspective.
To restart, I decided to go with showing my first DIY piece after a very long time of creative inactivity: 3.1 Phillip Lim (A/W 2015) inspired blouse, which I based on one of the dresses featured in the show. I used an old skirt with similar color scheme and nice pattern and turned it into the front and back piece, adding sleeves, neck part and inserts from white jersey leftovers. I messed up the proportions of the inserts though, so I added more white in the form of crochetted lace I got second hand on eBay years ago. The material cost me altogether something like 50 c, the pattern alterations and sewing took only about 4 hours of work, and it is from re-purposed material - win win win.
