Wonderful spring weather, and darling who has finally after a long time took up his camera, pulled me to fresh air to make a few photos.
The dress is not new I made it last year but I like it because it's so 40's
Pretty black ballerinas are from Rocket Dog
Stockings are french vintage (Vitos stockings) with dark seam.
The cap is new Gatsby Linen Flat Cap from ebay. I took it to my husband for this photo session.
Cat eye glasses are vintage 50's Bausch&Lomb.
Suitcase is vintage from somewhere.

Cozy Flower Dress

This time something different. Nothing special, nothing glamorous just everyday cozy summer dress made for my mother. 
Made of beautiful cotton flower print reminds me of sweet Sarah Kay drawings I always adore.

Hello Irene !

As you can presume, this dress is made ​​for certain Irena.  
She showed me a photo with a similar dress to show me what kind of dress she wants. I was not thrilled but probably because the model looked just awful.
In my opinion the dress I made is much prettier and hope Irena will agree with.

Folded Dress

Spring is outside, birds singing, smell of fresh grass and I have so much to sew as newer before. 
I haven't sew anything for myself for three months. The new season is here and I have nothing new to wear. I am sad a little bit. Think there is only one solution.. to work harder. 

Folded dress is the last finished. 
I thought that I would have problems with making that dress (I never before worked folded dress) but in the end it turned out that this is one of the simplest.

Maja's Wedding Dress

My bride wanted the dress from de Lancôme "Trésor in Love" commercial video. 

  As far as I know, the dress has been inspired by a prada vintage but has been made only for this video.
And dress is not 100% copy..I added a tulle between layers of fabric.
The rose can be taken off.

Taffeta Trenchcoat For Glamour Girls

For a long time I want to sew a taffeta trenchcoat. I saw it once on a photo and now I finally got a chance to do it.  
The girl that I sow a wedding dress told me that she need something to put on her wedding dress in case of colder weather, something that she can wear afterwards. So, I recommend the taffeta trench.
I have recommended the fabric, and she chose the color. Her wedding dress is white with black accessories (I'll show you shortly), but she did not want any of them for the trench.
She chose beautiful wine colored Iridescent taffeta.
Iridescent taffeta is a medium weight, crisp fabric woven with different color weft and warp threads. This produces a richer look for special occasion garments.
I planned to make a wide A-line trench, she wanted a narrow cut. We make compromise because of the wedding dress with wide skirt.... I made a princes cut line.
