I’m finally finished with the first pair of trousers for myself!
The fabric was found from a grate in Kangadžungel. Someone had cut a piece from the middle of the fabric, leaving a hole from which you could stare through. It seemed quite odd but my heart was stolen by the colour of maple leaves in autumn. It works like quite a camouflage.
So I bought it. Secretly wishing someday they’d become trousers.
Since I didn’t have an overlock until today, I had to dress most of the seam allowances. It is a lot of work but I tend to see it as an opportunity to get better at seams that require precision.
I took my father and sisters camera and together we headed to a nearby park to make some pictures to post here.

Who would have believed that I’ll voluntarily make a blouse out of rayon. And wear it!
I decided to be lazy for a change by taking the pattern from Burda and I did’t even make any alterations.
I would like to thank Marju for making this splendid picture of me eating (:

As many others, this dress also started with a casual visit to Abakhan Fabrics. Between the rolls of fabric I found those multicoloured birds sitting on a jersey.
For a long time I didn’t know what to do with them. I just wasn’t ready to cut into those little birds. I started draping the fabric around my red Diana. Finally, when I had to form the neckline I was ready to take my scissors and cut.
In the end I was lucky because I had been desperately trying to choose what to do as my draping assignment at school and the homework had just done itself!
