I already said so : I’m a creature of habits : re-reading a book, re-watching a movie, re-making a sewing pattern don’t annoy me at all ; quite the contrary : once the first time has passed, I appreciate even more any detail, style effect, or simply the narration. More practically, when it comes to patterns,Continue reading “Sweetheart variations – 2”
Well, this blog has taken a few vacations. I hope to share more substantial posts soon, but here are a few almost-random thoughts
It´s one thing to say you matched your date’s bow tie to your dress, but then it´s time to show said dress to the world wide web.
Last week-end, I went to a wedding. It rained (it’s considered lucky in France, but I think it’s mostly to compensate for the lack of sun at your wedding), we drunk, danced and celebrated. I had (of course) made my own dress for the occasion. But there’s more: I might be slightly deranged, but IContinue reading “I’ll be your mirror”
The world is filled with different skirts : straight skirts, pencil skirts, A-line skirts, pleated skirts, pleated skirts, tiered skirts, maxi skirts, asymetric skirts… I tried many of them, but I always come back to flared skirts (in French, we call them corolle skirts, for the flowers) that fit at the waist.

It’s mostly due to my morphology: no body will ever fit ready-to-wear standards perfectly, and mine is no exception. Every shirt I’ve ever tried was too large in the back and at theContinue reading “Pink & plaid – 1”
Because I’m usually fond of this kind of post and always discover something new, I’m introducing a new type of post with a collection of things found out and on the web: here we begin!
Here we are : Me-made-may is over. I am pleased to say I succeeded by wearing at least one handmade or altered garment a day. While that’s nice, it has been nonetheless difficult : my handmade clothes are not very varied, nor numerous, nor warm. I repeated outfits many times, and I’ve been chilly most ofContinue reading “Me-made-may – 2”
I’m a rather monotonous girl: whenever there’s a garment I like, I tend to buy it in multiple colors. The same goes for sewing: whenever a pattern is tried and true, I tend to plan a lot of other versions of it (which I may make or not: sewing takes a little _ lots ofContinue reading “Popsicle”
I was pretty sure I had seen every single one of fashion icon Audrey Hepburn “parisian” movies, but as it happens I had failed to watch Paris when it sizzles until now. Now I can see why it’s not her most famous : even Hepburn has shot in “so-so” movies. OK, maybe I’m exagerating there,Continue reading “Stylish movie: Paris when it sizzles – 1964”
