It is so much fun to get dressed up! I love creating fun different looks 😊😊 I am so happy to have uploaded my first ever Halloween tutorial on my YouTube channel. It is a bright and fun Cotton Candy Fairy look. I guess you could use the same makeup for a Barbie costume too. https://youtu.be/Q4-IG24CoVs With the makeup [...]

Hi friends 😊😊 Sorry for the late post (this post was suppose to be for yesterday). I had been having issues with my WordPress login and could not login properly for some reason. Yesterday I uploaded a swimwear and Thailand clothing haul on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXMEx5EA4b8 I really love the swimwear I purchased from Cotton [...]
Hi 🙂 🙂
I just got back to Australia today and I am super tired from travelling.
So happy to be home though. I have a lot to sort out, as I start my new job next week on Monday, and need to work my studies and everything else around work.
I hope you have had a great week so far. Ok, I am way too sleepy. Going to get ready for bed now. Thank you so much for reading. My Weekly Diary will be up tomorrow.
Have a great day!

We all want clothes that look great, are comfortable, and most importantly fit well.
I love reading sewing books (you can read about some of my favourites here). Even if you are an expert at sewing, you will sometimes need to refer to a good pattern drafting book to ensure you are getting your measurements right, in the correct areas.
5th Edition – Metric Pattern Cutting for Women’s Wear – by Winifred Aldrich – This book is my favourite patterning drafting book. I have referred to this book for many years. It is easy to follow, with clear instructions, and simple diagrams.
Inside the book:
First of all there an introduction, followed by information on: pattern & design cutting, fabrics, and tools & equipment for making patterns. The book is then divided into four parts.
Part one – is about ‘Classic form cutting’ which has sections on: the basic darted…

I love to sew! It is always a great feeling, being able to design a dress and bring it to life. When it comes to my finances I will spend more on art supplies (paints, paper, brushes...) than on sewing supplies. I draw and paint much more than I sew. I need to try [...]
Hello my friends 😀 😀
I hope your day is going well. It is another nice day in Sydney. Not too hot, and not too cold.
I am spending so much time on my studies at the moment (more time than I want too haha). But I have to study alot to get good grades.
I am reblogging this post on some of my favourite sewing books. You may have not read this post before, so I hope you enjoy it.
I work and study full-time so its getting a bit tricker to keep up with my blog (but do not worry I am not going anywhere). I will get use to it, hopefully in a week or so.
I was just going to work full-time and study part-time, but decided to do both at full-time as I want to complete my degree faster.
I also spend alot of time on my artwork (my true offline love haha). I am wanting to make my artwork and writing become my full-time job instead of part-time.
Also if you are a full-time artist let me know if you have any tips to go full-time at it. I have to keep working full-time to fund my dreams for now.
Thank you for reading, maybe comment below your dream job ❤ ❤
I will respond to more comments soon. Have a great day!

It is such great feeling bringing an idea to life.
I love designing clothes. The whole creative process is fun to go through with, from thinking of the idea and putting it on paper, to developing, pattern drafting, and sewing a toile (which is a completed garment made with cheap material – e.g. calico, before sewing final garment). The end result is amazing.
It is so much fun to pick out fabrics, buttons, and any trims to add. I am use to my own measurements, though I still like to refer to books as guides when required.
Sewing is fun whether you want to do it as a hobby, make costumes for cosplay, design your own clothes, or even design clothes and items for your own store. Even if you have advance skills in sewing, it is always good to learn new skills, or learn different ways of doing something. Do…
