Hi guys!
I’m posting things on this blog, that aren’t historical related. This is going to stop now. Therefore have I made another blog for this. Here I will share my modern (from 50s and up) stuff. DIYs, food, geekery, Etsy shop details and so on.
It will be up running this week.

Hopefully you will join there as well. See you!

1920’s Flapper Dress Inspiration/Challenge

I’ve just said yes to be a part of a historical sewing challenge. I don’t think i’m getting to much done and need some inspiration to my projects.
The communities is called The Historical Sewing Fortnightly and can be found on facebook. Just follow my link. 

The first Challenge I’ve enrolled myself in is the so called Squares, Rectangles and triangles.

So I sad down and thought. Looked in my old costume guide. And then it came to me. A flapper dress! I haven’t done any costumes from the modern period yet and this was my change to finally do so. I have a bunch of pale yellow chiffon fabric laying around and a pattern for the chemise to go under. I can fell this. So good!
I’s going to fell good to have my Toyota sewing machine up running again.

Here is some of  photos for inspiration:

My Etsy and YouTube adventure

Hi Guys!

As you might have noticed, I haven’t been so active on the blog for a couple of days now. The reason why is that I have started my own Etsy shop. I have already told you about this. I want to share with you, what I’ve been up to. I know i’t isn’t that historical and so on, but i’m really proud of it. Also… this is a geek confession.

One of the other things I’ve been up to, is a YouTube channel with my little sister Marie. We are going to make some nerdy DIY’s and I might post it on here sometimes, when I find it relevant for this community. So here is a couple of links you should check out!
