Regency costume adventures

I may not have had the chance to wear these pieces yet, but I would still like to share some working pictures of them. A little regency collection!

I learned a lot from this project: everything apart from the spencer was hand sewn, no machine involved! My stitches have become very neat, I made a lot of bias tape, did a lot of pleating and learned to flat fell seams. I improvised the pattern of the spencer, and used up a lot of stash fabrics. I still might want to make a spencer (or maybe pelisse) by hand, though…

I made a couple of 18th century inspired working class outfits for La Dutchessa and I to wear to Shari van der Waals-Atalla’s Salon de la Societe Raffinee. We were the ribbon girls, weren’t we adorable?

Knit fast, die warm

Knit Happens…

It’s comeback time, with crazy 3 fashion looks involving knitwear!

I teamed up with Jurgen de Boer for this fashion-like shoot inspired by Westknits, my current knitting design fav. Something very different from my usual ‘fantasy’ looks -take a look at our previous collab here– and a nice challenge!

LogoMakr (1)First off: the Penguono cardigan (handknit after Westknits design)

Second: the Megalodon shawl (handknit after Marc Smollin design)

And to top it all off: the Westknits Grizzly Bear prototype sweater

Crazy styling all by me of course, I think the accessories are on point: mini instax, fanny pack, vintage glasses, wild necklaces…

If you also think knitting is awesome, my advice is to check out ravelry for knitting & crochet inspiration, patterns and chatter. Or visit my personal ravelry page for my projects!

Leipsch Light

This year was my first WGT, and it was a strange one! I was determined to go, even though I was and am very ill. Had a good time, but only a few pictures to share. The first outfit is all by me including hat, the second outfit has a skirt by Skeletons in the Closet and a thrifted jacket. Here we go:

Tank you!

What do you get when you combine 6 awesome photographers, 14 selected models and one beautiful location for a Steampunk/Dieselpunk shoot? An epic day with epic pictures, that’s for sure. T(h)ank you, Cpt Constance Bashford, for organising this day!

My outfit was inspired by Tank Girl, with my own steampunk twist to it. Did I mention it was super difficult to model with glasses when you’re not used to it?

Here’s an early selection, I will add more pictures when I receive them.
