Occasionally it seems that world is in pure chaos with nothing making sense, but that doesn't matter as long as I can sew. Sewing is a form of art, or at the very least creativity, and a form of expression. A great outlet for the tension of everyday life. Also you can make cute things. The craft revolution is truly taking place, old skills are being revived by a new generation, but with a seriously modern twist.

I've made Mario pillow cases, a giraffe print background, and turned duvet covers into summer dresses. I enjoy making something unique, special, and me- then I like wearing it and watching it fall to pieces or not fit properly. Then I enjoy (slightly less) fixing it.

One day I shall have a room filled with glorious fabrics and boxes of notions, and on that day I will have found my nirvana. But until then this blog will exist as my virtual haberdashery and sewing room. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking at my creations as much as I enjoy looking at other blogs, and you'll be inspire to make something of your own.

TV Style Icons Troi

If you were wondering, no there is no reason why I do my numbers in french, and no I don't know why I do it.

Today's TV styler comes from a TV programme I find soooooooo dull (kinda like Downton Abbey, except with singing and dancing...) Glee.  It's taken over the world for reasons I don't quite understand, clearly it built from the success of High School Musical but revolves around mediocre remixes of lame songs (oh don't get me wrong the peeps can sing and the songs are super down-with-the-kids but I don't get the point of politely singing a Kanye song- if you don't like him you won't like their version, and if you do like him you won't like their version, and yet everyone likes it).  All the characters are having emotions all the time, then crying about them, telling everyone about them, then bursting into song about them- just exhausting. 

Anyway, from the very first episode there was a diamond in the rough, Emma Pillsbury played by Jayma Mays is totally awesome!  And I'm not the only person to notice, many of my pics are from What Would Emma Wear- a website dedicated to dissecting Emma Pillsburys outfits in each episode. Happily I have a job now so a lack of free time will prevent me from going that crazy!

Emma Pillsbury never wears trousers, loves pencil skirts and nice cardis and vintage jewellery, and she often rocks adorably monochromatic outfits.  Her character is OCD, very prim and proper, hates germs, and her outfits are part of a perfect but incredible stressed exterior.  Observe.

A few of examples of the classic Pillsbury monochromatic looks.

And some of her jewellery, including collar brooches which I don't know the correct name for.
