If you’ve followed me for a while I’ve made Ginger jeans before and the previous ones have been fine, but there is still fitting issues that made me not wear them regularly. I don’t necissarily know what the fitting issue might be so I’ve been putting it off for years now. This is my recent try on the jeans I’m and happier with this one, but there is still something to be done with the fit. So I’m hoping I’ll […]

Another try at the Ginger jeans


Happy birthday
Happy birthday to me! Today is my 29th birthday and I thought it would be a good time for me to share a bit off myself with you. The topic is about body image, and I’ve been struggling with this lately. I was quite skinny with a high metabolism during high school – ten years ago. So it was a big adjustment to suddenly be putting on weight. and for a few years, I had a steady weight gain. I […]

* Collaboration with Minerva Crafts This is my one year anniversary on Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. It has been an amazing experience being a part of this creative community. For  this occasion, I made shirts to celebrate the anniversary. I lengthen the Bruyere shirt to make it into a dress, shamlessly copying Abigail Spencers dress at the royal wedding. I made the short sleeve version of the Melilot shirt and wore it with tights, yes, seperates! I’m naming both the […]
