I miss my friend Astrid today.
I wish she was here, doing craft, smoking cherry tobacco out of
my Turkish water pipe, drinking coffee and munching on home
baked cakes like we used to do on Sukkot when I was living in
Stockholm. I feel very lonely right now...

I'm actually started to collect dresses again since most of the
ones I've got are way too big and I feel like I need a change.
I'm gonna take the opportunity and learn how to make dresses
smaller, so it looks professional, while I'm at the course.
I'm gonna reduce the sizes of the dresses I want to keep and
sell the dresses that I don't care much for anymore.
I'm gonna replace them with more special and unusual pieces.

This is my latest purchase, it's a genuine 1940's dress.

Thank you love.

what a gorgeous dress! i also want to learn how to make dresses smaller, and how to alter vintage patterns so that they actually fit.. sewing is a lot of fun, and one can always be sure that nobody else has the same dress or skirt!

What a pretty dress. I would love to be able to do dresses and modify them. I just don't have the patience to sew/ learn to do it better. I'm sure the course will be good fun!
