There is no such thing as too much fabric

For many years now, I’ve been searching for a dressmaker, to tailor cloths in my size and my ideas. I didn’t find one, but I found someone who likes to tailor in her free time and is good at it. I knew exactly what I wanted. A little black dress with long sleeves, not too short nor very long, in which I could feel comfortable. I haven’t found anything to fulfill all these requests in stores, so I went and bought myself some fabric. Not knowing how much fabric I should buy, I ended up buying way too much, so besides the little black dress, I got a skirt (I saw this design in many stores and I really wanted one) and a basic vest with pockets and belt.

Now that I have all three items (the dress, the skirt and the vest) I realized that they are 3 essentials in my wardrobe, and I can easily use them. The skirt and the vest are extremely versatile and I can use them in different combinations. As for the dress, I love how comfy it is and easy to wear.

I am so pleased to have them that I decided to take some photos, so you can see them too 

Now that I found someone to tailor my designs, there will probably be more posts like this one. I doubt I am going to stop here … I already bought fabric for a blouse I dreamed of for a long time now.


De foarte multi ani imi doresc sa gasesc o croitoreasa, care sa imi faca haine pe masura mea si exact asa cum imi doresc. Nu mi-am gasit chiar o croitoreasa, dar am gasit pe cineva caruia in timpul liber ii place si se pricepe sa croiasca. Am stiut exact ce imi doresc. O rochita neagra, cu maneci lungi, nici foarte mini nici foarte lunga, in care sa ma simt comoda si sa nu ma stranga. In magazine nu am gasit nimic ce sa imi satisfaca toate aceste cerinte, asa ca m-am dus si mi-am cumparat material. Nestiind cat material sa imi cumpar, am ajuns sa cumpar mult mai mult decat aveam nevoie, asa ca pe langa rochita neagra, mi-am mai facut o fusta (modelul acesta de fusta l-am tot vazut prin magazine si imi doream demult asa o fusta) si o vesta simpla cu buzunare si cordon.

Acum ca le am pe toate trei (rochita, fusta si vesta) mi-am dat seama ca reprezinta niste piese de rezistenta in garderoba mea, la care pot apela cu usurinta. Fusta si vesta sunt foarte versatile si le pot folosi in diverse combinatii. In ceea ce priveste rochia, cel mai mult imi place cat este de comoda si de usor de purtat.

Sunt atat de incantata de ele incat am decis sa fac niste poze, ca sa le vedeti si voi 🙂

Acum ca mi-am gasit cine sa imi croiasca, probabil vor mai urma astfel de postari. Nu cred ca ma voi putea opri … Deja mi-am cumparat material pentru o bluza pe care mi-o doresc demult.

    Imi plac din ce in ce mai mult postarile tale.
    Imi place cuvantul rochie (suna cumva), implicit imi plac si rochiile (comode in general), exact ca cea neagra a ta.
    Ma gandeam ca daca mi as schimba meseria asta as face, rochii casual, foarte greu gasesti in magaxine.
    Dar nu stiu sa croiesc am cusut la madina candva (poate daca mi as da silinta, ad reusi ceva)
    Poate intr-o zi macar ptr mine.
    Bafta in tot ce faci!
