I may be the worst blogger ever, to be posting after a whole month; but I had my excuse! Well, I resigned from my job and it was kind of a turmoil. In fact I saw it coming for a looong time, and at last I couldn't stay any longer. No hard feelings for anyone, but I just couldn't do the "thing" any more!
But then started the "unemployment" period, which I am really not very used to. I've been working there for more than 9 years; before that I was working freelance for another 2.5 years for more or less the same people; and before that I was at the university. So not much of a stay-at-home person for an extended time.
So when I started staying at home (since I couldn't find a new job immediately) I was like "what now?" I hoped I could sew, knit, read, etc.; but you know, I couldn't do anything! Well, anything besides checking Pinterest and discover new blogs 24/7!!! Hence the silence...
But now I started to feel a little better and there seems to be a few opportunities "job-wise" so I'm feeling refreshed enough to start over :)
Unfortunately, I can only share a dress I made last year for now; but I'm working on some new projects at the moment and hope I can publish them as soon as I finish (if I bought a zipper timely, it would already be finished; but that's only me!).
The pattern is from Burda magazine, 02/2011, model #101. I used a soft, dark green linen blend. But the high-point was to find a matching belt that belonged to another dress (ready-made) I bought ages ago and haven't worn once!
It is such a cute and "flexible" dress, that I wore it several times on different occasions. Suitable either for a picnik with a cardigan, or to a party with some simple jewellry.
What do you think?
