At first: sorry for my bad english I'm watching a lot of series and videos in english and I understand it as well as never before. But I really can't speak and write it anymore xD Because of that, feel free to send me messages or comments in english, but don't be surprised if you get a very confusing answer
This is just a little da-update, no special information or something like that. If you're interested, just enjoy the jabbering
If you have seen the image of my first skirt, you already know I try to make a few garments for myself. I wasn't very active on deviantart in the last months because at the moment I'm sitting at home, working on my fantasy-novel, being outside and preparing all the things for a little relocation. Nevertheless, I lost weight in the last two years (because I was overweight) and a lot of my garments are too large now. I have to buy new clothes and I really love the mix of medieval/gothic/dark-fairy/alternative-clothes but it's always so hard to find them. I really love to buy clothes from etsy or dawanda (two great sites to get alternative handmade-clothes), but sometimes it's a bit expensive (Although I totally understand the high price because it's handmade and very unique! But for me it's a bit too pricey to buy ALL of my clothes there). Besides, it's very hard for me to find skirts which are just wonderful, because I always like dark colours like black, dark-brown, dark-purple and in combination with the perfect shape, they're just very rare.
I really wanted to learn how to use the sewing machine. On this morning, I ran up the stairs, saw the box of the sewing machine, opened it with anticipation and - it was just broken. The pedal doesn't work anymore and it's about 10 years ago someone used it. One of the regulators was broken too and it was not possible to work with the sewing machine. What a disaster!
But the sewing-god had a happy day and I found a very nice advertisement about a great sewing-machine! Wohoo! It's not very expensive and it was made by a very high-qualitiy manufacturer.
I will try to make a first skirt in the next weeks and if it works, I will upload some pictures
Have a nice day!
