This is where I show all of my fashion design/sewing work. Most designs are made into actual garments and then worn in outfit posts, like the ones shown here. The clothing items labeled “self-made” are the ones I designed, drafted, and sewed from scratch. This page is always a work-in-progress, updated as soon as I whip out something new. :) Hope you enjoy! XX, Angela

Happy Sunday!

This dress that I’m wearing today has become one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. Maybe because I made it, or maybe it’s because of how simple yet versatile it is. It’s a dark heathered grey skater dress with long sleeves and a flared skirt. I used a medium weight knit that has a good drape and soft touch. The back has criss-cross straps which adds a more edgier touch to this dress. I actually completed it a while ago, but never got around to photographing it. It was pretty simple to make, 2 hours at most.

Going with the layering theme for fall, I put on a flannel over the dress to add some color and interest. If you know me, you know that my entire wardrobe is black, white, grey, and blue. I didn’t want this entire look to be grey and black so there goes the red.

Now that it’s chillier than I had planned for this post to be (and the pictures were shot in Vancouver, where it was below freezing), I wore this classic babydoll style coat. It was on sale, pretty inexpensive and also really cute. Forever 21 has some pretty similar coats for cheap as well. Because of the freezing weather, I also wore some thigh-high socks with some detailing that were scrunched down to create faux-legwarmers and finished off with basic black combat boots. You could add a scarf if needed for more warmth, but I just forgot to bring mine for the shoot.

And yes, if you’re wondering, there are airplanes photo-bombing my photos. Quite many, if you ask me. We were at the “walkway” or ramp or “sightseeing” place that supposedly is great if you want to watch airplanes land/take off. I guess that explains why.

PS: It’s almost Thanksgiving! I’m so excited, but I still have “school” until Thursday. Black Friday is this friday, and if you always have a hard time shopping on that day, be sure to check back here tomorrow for some invaluable tips! ;)

PPS: If you’ve noticed, I’ve added a “Subscribe” page on the menu bar where you can now easily subscribe to my blog without going though the trouble of finding the subscription box (if you’ve already found it, extra points for you!). If you haven’t subscribed yet, why not? :)

Top- Self Made   Skirt- Self Made

I am so late on this trend (it’s already August!) but maxi skirts are so comfortable and great for the summer. This one that I made has a contrasting front, sorta forming chevrons but not quite. I cut the left half the wrong direction but oh well, I actually like it mismatched. It adds something unique to an otherwise normal maxi. The fabric is a rayon-poly blend knit, which makes it so easy to lounge and walk around in.

 

The top is edgier than the skirt. I made the shirt base from a rayon knit a long time ago but thought it was time to spice up a plain black tee. Therefore, I embroidered small charms allover and then added some wonky stitching to create a multi-chained “necklace”. I think that the stitching and unhemed hems (is there such thing?) gives it more of a distressed feel.

 

It’s long weekend here where I’m vacationing at (the above gif sums up how I feel) but I honestly have no clue on what holiday it is. Nevertheless, where ever you are in the world, I wish you a happy weekend, or Sunday in that matter.

Love ya all,

Dress- Self Made

(psssssshhhhhhh I have the worst facial expressions….just saying)

Yes, I made the dress. These photos were taken so long ago but again, I’m traveling so I’ll have to use these. The dress itself is made from a light cotton/poly jersey and from only a yard of that stuff. Which means this dress cost $6. Score! There’s an empire waist with an elastic band and 3 tires for the skirt. Pretty simple but great for summer days.

I’m trying to post regularly now. And I mean it. I’m trying 2 posts per week, one being fashion/teenager related and the other a DIY. Mostly posting posts that have a meaning and are useful to you guys and not just some random article that I pieced together. I really want to grow my blog and readership and this is one way to do it. Anyhow, thanks to everyone who reads and shares! Love ya all,
