I'm not sewing anything at the moment. Or, well, I'm sewing a lot, but no clothes, I'm working on transforming my paper tape dressform that I made last christmas to a pinnable, more correct version. It seems to work, but it's a heckload of work and it keeps me quite busy.
But when I found the second volume of Drape Drape on the internet last week, I just couldn't stop myself. Even though the only more complex thing (I also made a simple tank-top that I've actually used a lot) I made yet from volume one turned out tiiiny (I think the patterns are actually true to size, unlike most western patterns, I will give it another go). There are still a couple of dresses in it that I'd like to try, so I'll get back to it.
But volume two is just more... me! I got it from Pompadour24 at Etsy, I do recommend trying that out if you haven't already! It was way faster than Yesasia (that I used for volume one), and I like supporting small businesses (especially ones that enable me to buy Japanese fabrics, books and notions at the click of a button!).
Update: The "original" denim Acne/Lanvin is 6195 skr, that's about 830 US$, well worth the effort to make it oneself, in other words... :-)
I plan on posting a tuorial for this after it's finished (I've tried pinning in it, I use it as a giant pin-cushion when I hand sew all the seams on it, and it works really well)!
