Happy New Year!

Yay! I'm writing here again! I can't believe it. Anyway, it's been a very busy 2013 ending for me! I've started taking an Illustration course and I'm also studying the first year of the History of Art degree. Talk about busy! Plus, this next week exams will start! OMG! I'm super stressed.

With all this happening, I haven't found the time to keep sewing or doing tutorials, but I promise I will try to do some more! I want to try more cutsew and hoodie reconstructions, and I plan to post the JSKs and skirts that I made in the summer. So stay tuned for that! I also want to try and make some kind of downloadable PDF pattern for a simple JSK, but we will see! I have a couple of Blythe Cons I'm going to as a vendor this year, so I won't have a lot of time!

My sewing machine broke last summer, and I've just recently bought a new one. It's a Singer Simplicity, I believe, and I hope we can get along together! It's heavy and has an inner metal structure so I'm pretty happy about that, but I honestly haven't found the time to try and sew with her :_(

My lolita wardrobe expanded a bit over this summer with the few pieces I made, and it's expanding a tiny bit more with an order I made to Bodyline recently. I had to order some white bloomers and a friend needed shoes, and I casually saw a dress that didn't look very bad, and since I'm still feeling this "old school" vibe, and it was so pretty! I decided to try. Also, it was 15€ all of sudden! I will never understand how bodyline changes their prices. I looked for reviews and the blue version didn't look that bad, honestly. But I got the pink one, because I've got the sudden urge to wear LOTS of pink. Oh well! Anyway, if it turns to be an ugly lace monster I won't have lost much! If you're curious, it's this awful looking thing here: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showAll.asp?type=lolita Fortunately enough, I found a pic on the sales comm, but it's the blue colorway: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/sweetlolilacey/57729159/537/537_600.png The pic belongs to sweetlolitalacey. I wouldn't say it's exactly old school style, but I fell in love with the skirt and the bodice! I honestly feel it lacks something in the waist seam, and I'm not sure about how it will sit on me. Oh well! We will see.

As for this year's lolita resolutions, I plan to take "control" of my wardrobe. Yeah. Not an easy task, I know. I want to include at least one original old school piece, preferably either blackxwhite or pinkxwhite, perhaps redxwhite, and also I will start getting more basic items like blouses and cardigans, and some cutsews too. As for "big pieces", I intend to purchase some JSKs and make some more JSKs and maybe even OPs! I will be focusing in Classic and Sweet, but I feel that I won't be able to persuade myself from including some Gothic in the wardrobe. Oh well. And shoes. I need more shoes! And headwear. But we will see.

Also! My hair is now pink. Bright pink! I'm very happy with it, it looks like a giant cotton candy ball because of my curls. Yayyyy! I'll dye it black as soon as my roots start showing, though, I'm extremely lazy about retouching roots :P

Well, this is all for now, folks! Enjoy yourselves until the next entry! ^0^
