- Blouse: Forever 21
- Vest: Liz Lisa
- Skirt: Pintuck Ribbon Skirt: Metamorphose Temps de Fille
For most outfit posts, if I include a date, assume that I wore it then. I’m not good at taking self-photos and I’m really not photogenic at all. ;_;
That’s my first Liza Lisa item! $6 auction, huehuehuehueheue.
Also, please note that I finally have to start putting a source on my photos. I’m sorry if it’s a hassle, but I got wind of someone who has been stealing my photos and removing all credit. It’s been deleted since but not cool. :c I don’t mind if you removing my blithering, just don’t remove the outfit breakdown and the source!
The finished bustier foundation with boning and all that. 100% cotton canvas. Spent class hours draping the new outer.
My instructor complimented the fit (“I get one or two students a year who really understand fit. ****, you’re one of them. It makes my heart happy.”) and I probably was two steps from bursting into tears.
I enjoy what I can do. This is an untethered challenging project and if there’s anything I apparently love to do, it’s wearing out the skin on my index finger with pin points.
- Wool beret with chiffon bow pin
- Forever 21 Blouse with offbrand necktie
- Dear Creatures - Seberg Dress Mustard w/ White Dots
Slightly differing outfit from Monday’s trek to school.
I got the dress from Dear Creature’s sample sale in Pasadena. I got to meet the designers and discuss an internship with them. ;_;
I spewed spaghetti like no one’s business.
Picked up acessories after a long shift today. :D
So glad Icing has these with alligator clips instead of barettes… I can’t wear barettes. :c
Phase 1 of the bustier I’m making for my Draping and Garment Construction II class, I’ve already patterned the foundation. I bought the starting fabrics too.
The outer shell will be 100% Dupioni silk. The rose embellishments will all be handmade and made of mixed textiles; mostly pink Duiponi silk, and iridescent dusty pink silk chiffon. I’ll buy some tulles and more chiffons next week when I really start finishing it up. This assignment isn’t cheap, but I really want it to start thinking about my portfolio seriously so I might as well set my standards high.
Except for illustrations, I really hate doing detailed drawings beyond quick sketching.
I think this is my… third reblog in the history of this tumblr? Awesome! Anyways, I’ve had my internal struggle over the dress and I’ve decided that I don’t have the heart to alter it. I’d rather trade it (or sell it) instead.

You can contact me via ask or any method you choose from here. Facebook is preferable, as I’ve learned to check my “Other” inbox frequently. Tumblr asks are still okay, though. :)
I had one of those poetic moments where I stopped and just marveled that I existed, somehow made of the perfect combination of chemicals and atoms, that would lend me the power to create whatever I imagined. My fingers and thumbs are miracles. I’ve always thought of them that way, but the ink stains just reminded me.
And I have some really manly hands.
