10 things about me:
In september, I'll move out and will live on my own for the first time.
I prefer being five minutes early than being five minutes late.
I'm really bad when it comes to understanding songtexts. I've got to listen to a song several times until I understand it, even when it's in german.
I've got 13 ear piercings, whereof 7 I pierced myself (whithout ever having problems).
I think that lovely lingerie is the most beautiful piece of clothing a woman can wear.
I like winter better than summer.
My favourite jewellery item are rings.
Since Lolita came into my live, my shoes collection almost doubled.
I can run 10 miles whithout a problem, although I don't look like.
If I ever own a house, I'll turn one room into a library.

I give the award to Marzi Panik.


Now for something different I did over the last few days, enjoying the newly gained freedom xD. I sewed another sweet lolita skirt!

I wonder why it took so long for me to realise how much I love mint green! There are two different fabrics, one with cute cupcakes and little polka dots and a plain one with bigger polka dots.

For the waistband, I made a shirring on the sides.

As you can see, I had a lot of fun with my ruffle foot xD. That's about nine meters ruffles (>.<).
I also made a matching head bow on an alice band:

Its huuugeee. ^^
Then, I tried something new and made an attempt with fimo:

I hope it's identifiable. It should be a cupcake on a pearl necklace, decorated with a pearl, rhinestones and a little bow.
The matching earrings are just pearls and bows:

[ Insert Adequate Title Here ]


so despite the awful hot weather (when I'm grown up, I'll move notrthward xD ), I'm already thinking of autumn again - at leat concerning my wardrobe. When I saw that wonderful dark green woven fabric in the sale, I couldn't resist but make a circular skirt with matching cape.

Worn with a petticoat, the skirt gives an a-shape, which I think looks lovely with classic lolita.

For the cape, I used Natron's tutorial, which works really good.

No More School

Today, I couldn't get rid of the expression that the handing over of the school certificates is the biggest challenge we met during the last three years xD but in the end, everyone recieved one and I'm not too unhappy with mine. Yay!

That's what I was wearing:

Dress: handmade
Shoes: Pin Up Couture
Belt: Tally Weijl
Alice band: Claire's

Cream & Champagne

Good morning!

Yesterday, it was quite hot outside, so I spent half the day inside, where it was comfortably cool and sewed a bit (^.^)

First, I took the pattern for the blouse 124-062011 and altered it a bit; so I elongated the sleeves and generally took some wideness off.

The fabric is a beautiful cream-coloured cotton fabric with embroideries.

Another change I made is the lacing at the neckline, I found I more suitable than the suggested elastic band.


Then, I had this piece of satin lying around. The colour is a wonderful chamagne, but what to do with satin exept a wedding dress? (It wasn't enough for a wedding dress anyway). So it became an underskirt.

Basically, it's a two-tiered skirt, to give the skirt worn over it some shape.

Je Suis Finis! ^^

But hey, my exams are finally over! No more highschool, Yay!

I guess that's what I felt like most of my school time... xD.

*THE* Dress

Hi folks,

I hope you're all well. I'm actually in the final throes of my oral exams, but I couldn't help but sewing the dress for the graduation ceremony...
For the upper part of the dress, I took the Burda Styla pattern for dress 116-062011 (Sue, is it the same as you use? I noticed afterwards - I'm sorry, Ididn't mean to copy you!).
I changed the neckline slightly (at least I thought so), and ended up in having a quite plunging neckline, which is really unusual to wear for me. The skirt is also costumized and consists now of a gathered panel, nothing outstanding.

As announced, it's black xD.
I used tons of chiffon, the lining is satin. I like the neckline with the neckholder straps a lot, that's why I chose this particuliar pattern (^.^)

The dress doesn't fit Venus too well, so please ignore the fact that it looks rather crumpled.

It's closed with a zipper on the left side.

An idea how to style it. I thougt about red highlights, like the belt, red shoes and maybe a red alice band. What do you think?
I really, really tride to keep it simple, but I can't abandon the impression I'll be hopelessly overdressed - nevertheless.

There Are Many Reasons To Believe In A Better World

I can't help it, but this commercial never fails to make me want to cry  (it's such a shame, I mean, it's only a soft drink, damn!)

White Ladybug

Hi my dears,

How are you?
I was lucky to find a bit time to sew a bit (*_*)

I got a fabulous white, sheer fabric with cute navy blue polka dots, and since polka dots seem to be en vogue this summer (again?), I decided to make a blouse.

I used the Burda pattern nr. 8153, so it's rather loose-fitting and as such perfect for summertime.

The fabric is a polyester viscose mix and very cool and comfortable on bare skin. I'm glad this fabric is very easy-care and only needs little ironing to look uncrinkled.

Can you spot the tiny anchors on the buttons? I tried to add a little sailor feeling using them (^.^). I think the blouse will look nice with my navy blue highwaist skirt.

I'm quite proud of how the blouse is processed, I really tried to work neatly this time. In order that it also looks pretty inside, I made french seams.

Next project will be the dress for my graduation ceremony, it's going to be - surprise, surprise - black (>.<)

All The Small Things

...that make my life so much better (>.<)
I guess as soon as I move and start studying, I'll have to cut down on shopping drastically, since I'll need the money for a bit more important things like living and food and stuff...

Well, back to the main point of this post: shopping! xD

The first item was a pair of new Converse chucks. My current pair unraveled into its components, so I wanted new ones. Chucks are my all time favourite casual shoes, and, according to my new obsession with lilac, I looked for lilac/purple ones. I was so lucky to find a pair in my size, second hand, as good as new, for not even half of the price, yay! Ebay, I love you!

I love love love the colour!

Then, after coming across it on several fashion blogs, I visited the online shop, where they have quite cool stuff. Well, I didn't get any clothes, I'm so picky with clothes since I sew them on my own, but we all know how much I love jewellery, and I found some extremely pretty things there!
I think the service was quite good, they shipped quick and there were no problems at all.
The accessoires came in this cute present box:

And that's what was inside:

A purple butterfly ring, a snake ring, and a flowery bracelet

Last parcel ( I love opening parcels, it's like christmas ^^) was an order from qutieland.

 A doctor-styled bag in white. The quality is surprisingly good, it's still a bit crumply, but I think this will go away when I used it a few times. They say it's not applicable for heavy items, and I guess it's good to mind this advice, but besides that, I'm very content.

Then, the thing I was waiting for most eagerly: frilled rhs! I love them, they're so awesome, I can't wait doing a gothic or bittersweet lolita coord with them!
Actually, I've been thinking about costumizing the soles on the side, because there is so much space empty xD. I thought about rhinestones or something, what do you think? Is this even allowed. or should the soles been left empty and flawless?
