New Wig! (Posted 4th August 2015)

It came unstyled, so i trimmed the fringe and gave it a cut to fit my face more!

Bag Progress (Posted 20th May 2011)

So i decided i'd make a bag, don't know anything about making bags so my mother has decided to this one for me. I'm not good at sewing just yet, haha. So first of all the strap isn't as wide as i wanted it to be, but it's fine for now. Instead of using a different blue i got mother to use the rest of the dark blue that i used for the Blazer, saving money. And well here it is so far. Oh and i'll be making an heart chain thingy as Yui has one on her bag. (:

Blazer (Posted 8th May 2011)

before you say anything, it's not purple.. that's just the lighting.. it's pure dark blue cotton drill. so shhh. All i need now is the buttons and it's done! That is it! Now to get some ribbon and to make a shirt! And buy some shoes and socks. And done! oh.. yeah and cut the wig haha. (:

Skirt Progress (Posted 16th April 2011)

Have i ever mentioned how annoying pleats are?
Seriously, me and my mother had to cut out 2 more bits and attach it on. Damn things never seem to come out alright. We made all different sized pleats to try and get them to fit in.. but no. *shakes fist* ..yeah and i've gotta make 2 more of these things.. GOD DAMMIT.
Over all, i'm happy with it (:
