Florals and Faeries | The Articles

As I clear up my space and put some order to the madness, I found that I have a nice collection of artificial flowers. By nice, I mean I had so much that these just needed to go! This is one of the creations I was working on during my time off.

I started with making a simple strappy dress using a green and white floral fabric . I gave it a pointed hem. I was limited on how much fabric I had with this, so I gave it a bottom layer of a light olive colour fabric. I wanted something slightly adjustable in sizing, so I ruched the waist with several rows of elastic. as well as a zip on the back. This was going to be my green faerie.

The leaves and flowers on this dress were hand sewn onto the dress. I could have opted for a much faster solution by just using my trusty hot glue gun to attach them, but I was afraid that I’d be too indecisive with the placement of the flowers. I didn’t quite build out the layout that I wanted. So hand sewing it was just in case I wanted to change things up.

I changed it up at least three times.

The edges are raw for the time being. I might distress them a bit more to make it a little more whimsical. Other than that, I think the one thing that’s missing now is a headpiece. So that’s something to consider adding to my list of projects!

This was a fun piece to create. The hand sewing was a bit time-consuming, but looking at the final results, it was worth it. This is definitely something I’d like to create more of. I still have plenty of leaves and flowers left over, so why not!

Another Rotation Around the Planet

The time is slowly approaching. It’s almost time to mark another rotation around this planet – the day of my creation.

Like New Year’s Resolutions, I sometimes like to set Birthday Goals. This year, I’d plan to start working on a photo project that I’ve held off on due to a variety of reasons. The longer that I put it off, the less likely that it’s actually going to come into fruition. So hopefully, I’ll be able to tout about how much (or little) I’ve accomplished by this time next year.

As for the day itself, no real plans have been made. I figure I’d just play it by ear and see what adventures the day brings. I will make it appoint, though to try and not spend a good portion of the day sitting at my sewing machine and working on something that can wait until the day after. It’s just going to be a day of cake, cake, and more cake.

Ideally, I’d like to tackle a couple of photo shoots before the day, so we’ll see how creatively inspired I can get over the next few days.

P.S. – The dress in this photo is one of my creations. It used to be a curtain panel. Also, this is a self-portrait using natural light.

Dressed In Gold


This is one of my latest creations. This fabric had been sitting around my sewing space for some time now, but I just didn’t know what kind of dress I wanted to create with it…until now.

This semi-sheer lace beauty is simple, elegant, and just a hint of sexy. When I was thinking of creating with this fabric, I just knew that it had to be a nice long dress with a pretty train in the back. When deciding the style for the upper portion of the dress, I think I just ended up overthinking it, which led me to just not creating this for awhile. Eventually, I settled on something simple.

The fabric itself was eye-catching enough that I didn’t feel that I had to do too much for this to be an eye-catching piece. It already spoke for itself. The soft bell sleeves are one of my favourite things to add on to my creations. It gives the creation an almost goddess-like presence.

I’m quite proud of this piece. It’s definitely a wonderful addition to add to my photo shoot wardrobe.

I haven’t thought much about the next step for this, which is a photo shoot (duh!). It’s definitely not my size, so I hope to find a model to wear this for a photo shoot in the future. In the meantime, I can dream up a concept for this dress!
