Today I got mail!! I did a private swap with my friend Wusi. I know her from the Nähkromanten sewing forum. She is a very talented felter and made gorgeus leaves and flowers for me out of felt. The beautiful pearls she sewed on add special shine!
The leaves and flowers are hair accessories. Today I immediately had to wear one of the heartshapped leaves. (The pictures are up on my IG amyinmyheart they were quite dark before adding filters and somehow you can't use pictures you've edited via insta on tumblr or I would post them here.)
My part of the swap hasn't reached my friend yet. I will share that once she's got them. Hint: it's also hair accessories!
My goal for this autumn is to add some more uni coloured maxi skirts to my wardrobe. The white skirt from my last post already counted towards that.
This pale green one with gorgeus machine embroidery is another candidate. The fabric had the embroidery on both borders, so I decided on two wide tiers to include all the embroidery. The second tier has more seams in the back as I pieced the fabric together there. Obviously I included pockets too!
In full body shots the embroidery is lost sadly but that's to be expected. It's a beautiful detail once your close to me.
I wanted a long white skirt for layering purposes and remembered the white skirt I bought as a teenager and didn't give away yet because.. reasons. It's 100% cotton and a kind of muslin fabric. The "it's late at night but I want a before picture" shows that it still fit me but wasn't really flattering. Plus I tend to go for even more voluminous skirts nowadays. So I decided to add a decorative front lace panel to resize/upsize the skirt and give it some extra flair and volume at the same time. Arranging all the lace was fun!! I also cut out the old underskirt and added a more voluminous one instead (yes there's a theme here).
Now I have a gorgeus long white skirt for layering that I didn't have to start from scratch and gave an old skirt new life. I might add placket pockets later on.
For the first wear I went with a simple coord to let the skirt shine. It pairs well with my white flower vest!
Hello my name (real name) is Lady Newt Araviin the Autumn Fae Maiden!
I identify as High Fae/Fairy, I’m not like other Folklore fairies, I am “life size” Fae not a small pixie. People mistaken me as a pixie but I ashore you we are not the same.
I have the ability to shapeshift in to forest critters that suits my needs such as in battle; a grizzly bear or lone wolf, if I feel the need to save a wondering lost children or adult I am a stage or a rabbit. I suit the needs of others as well.
Ghouls and Democratic life and Dark magic are my enemies!
Nymphs and Goblins are my friends.
Shapeshifters (were*animals*) are close friends.
Pixies are well pixies haha.
But most of all I don’t understand humans, they are strange and unusual…
Elves well take your pick.
Other mystical life and critters coexist with me and the others… some are good and some are evil even angels and demons live with us… The angels you don’t see much of nor the demons about all of them happened long ago… story for another time… but humans are the much fragile ones they have no magic, no powers, we protect them, at all cost even if they don’t know that we truly exist.
I have other powers too, super strength, Autumn blue Flames, and the ability smell sense, emotional changes, I can what I call Evaporate or Jump from places to place. I have fangs but I only use them with angry, I can also, fly with my wings, but Alas they were cut long ago… I am wingless… 😞
Okay I'm so excited that I'm finally after 3 years of wanting to finish this project I'm doing it ... but dang, it's a pain in the butt to see and join the stitches on my first ever granny squares... the stitches are super tight and uneven... haha I'll get this bag done!!!
What do you think? I can’t sew like at all haha and I need an inside liner for this bag… and a few more seasonal ones I’m making and make the inside liner with a zipper for all of them.
