Sewing

A skirt, a blouse and skeletons

My new favourite blouse is white Diana by In House Patterns. This is actually the second time I’m using the same pattern. I used white drapey viscose remnant which suited nicely for the blouse. The only change I made was that I left out the button in the collar and replaced it with an invisible sew-on snap.

I also made the pleated skirt in the pictures. This time I did not use any pattern. I just fitted the waist and pleated the fabric evenly to it. The fabric is a nice stretch cotton satin remnant that costed next to nothing.

We took the pictures at the Finnish Museum of Natural History. I think that this giant bird (dino?) looks quite friendly.

My favourite thing is, of course, this gigantic giganotosaurus, a replica of a particularly well preserved fossil originally found in Patagonia. The giant monster could have easily eaten me whole.

S wanted to pose with me with this African Elephant that greets every visitor in the entrance lounge. See you later!
