Midsummer Cupcakes


This year I’m not celebrating the arrival of midsummer, not drinking, not partying. I guess I just don’t feel the need to. Finally I have a post where all of the clothes are made by myself. I found this lovely cupcake print fabric (which is not something I would usually like) a while ago & made this super cute sweater for Laura. She loves it and so do I. I know it’s not something I would typically make, but I think it’s great stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new.

Cut it out


I can’t believe it’s the middle of June! This year June has brought me lots of changes. I am now (and for now) blogging from The Netherlands. I made this t-shirt back in Riga and now is the perfect weather to wear it. I wanted to make a skull cut out, because all of them I’ve seen are a little exaggerated and quite ugly actually, so I tried making something more realistic. The black fabric is sewed underneath and I’m planning to experiment with this technique further - with different colors and fabrics. I’ll definitely try something with fake leather (which I love, as I’ve mentioned many times before).
