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…

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!

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!

One sunny day, a most beautiful graden, a couple of models and ‘de Cycloop‘ (a student association in Nijmegen for photographers.) Of course I did my own styling and make-up, and I made the headscarf. These are some of the results!
