As you’ve undoubtedly noticed by now, I like buying custom pieces for my dioramas (here and here). I find they add a dash of realism to Eve’s world, while simultaneously offering a little support to the skilled artisans that create them. That being said, custom pieces, or even pieces that don’t rely heavily on plastic, can be quite expensive.
I found a gorgeous blouse online that I just loved, but my budget didn’t love the price tag.
In general, while I like looking at runway trends, they don’t completely dominate my wardrobe. That being said, occasionally what’s trendy and my personal aesthetic tastes more or less match up.
I found this material on what was supposed to be a strictly browsing trip to the fabric store; it was too cute to pass up, but it’s been so busy around here lately that it’s taken me a while to get around to sharing it on the blog. While the weather is still far too cold for it, I decided to make a short, summer style dress and simply add layers.
