DIY-project: Top inspired by Katie

Lately my head has been overflowing with all types of ideas for clothes. It´s annoying you know, because I´ve never sewn before (if you look away from those crappy sewing lessons in elementary school). Mum just happened to have a old sewing machine, she used to sew a lot, but now she can´t bother anymore. Kinda sad, but I guess she just don´t have the motivation. Me on the other had have way too much so despite never done it before I wanted to give it try.
Everyone has got to start somewhere right?

I kindly asked for some old fabrics and she threw some old curtains at me. I found some pink gingham fabric in my room and also raped the plastic flower in the old vase (no one look at anyway) and this became the result:


As you can see the middle part is transparent, but the pink gingham are just wide enough to cover dem boobs so whether you wear it with a top under or not it´s all fine, but I think I prefer to wear something under with it.


(kindly reminder to myself: iron the fabric before you start)


I love daisy flowers (my favorite flowers) and I used pearls too.


This is the pattern of the curtain. It´s so pretty though. Such I pity mum is not using it anymore, but I guess i shouldn´t complain. More stuff for free to me heh.

I was inspired by Katie´s clothing. Katie always have such simple designs yet they are so pretty!

Here are some examples:

I´m very pleased with the result if looking at the fact that I´ve never sewn before and this is 100% self-taught so I very happy with myself aside the fact that there was some less impressive swearing going around in the beginning haha(you know how it is right?) ! Nothing comes easily I guess.

 I know I need a lot of improvement many places, but I know I´ll eventually get there. Sewing was a lot of more fun than I though. Especially if you´re the designer too! I´ll definitely sew more!
