    One thing I definately want to make, is a 50s dress. That’s been fascinating me quite long. Don’t know where I’m going to wear it, though, but that’s my dream. Then, I’d like to make a felt-coat with national pattern embroidery. And the third definite thing I’d like to sew is a black pencil skirt. I hope to make many things besides above mentioned, though.

    I hope I make a lot of things… A lace shirt, jeans, bella pants for my sister, dresses… But the first of all, finishing the coat I started to make two months ago.

    Off the top of my head … an infinity dress, a 50’s inspired formal dress, and a mini interview suitable wardrobe.

    It’s my Birthday! Yay!!!
