I was inspired to make this dress after seeing a girl on Instagram wearing this Angelic Pretty Dress. I figured it was a pretty simple design that I should easily be able to replicate myself. So I did.

I made this dress out of red and white gingham cotton, and made the skirt a little longer than the original. The back has an (almost) invisible zipper.

I originally intended to create a little white bow belt, but I ended up leaving it out because it looked better without the belt.

This dress has two huge pockets in the skirt, big enough to fit a large bag of candy.


I bought 10 meters of this blue linnen viscose fabric because I like the way light blue looks on me and this is a lovely fabric for summer.

This dress was a bit of a struggle as I originally wanted it to have a peter pan collar. When I made it, however, it looked really bad. I ended up cutting the collar off and making it a square neckline.

There’s a couple of things I don’t love about this but at the end of the day I do love it and if I saw a character wearing it in a movie I would want to have it.

Made in Autumn 2021



For Autumn I wanted to make a dress that really screams Halloween, but like, quietly. I designed this dress to have a collar with a bat wing edge.

This dress was very experimental, and I’m thrilled with how it came out considering that I mostly just improvised.

I made the bat belt a couple of weeks after finishing the dress, and I really think it adds a lot to the dress. Also, it’s just really, really cute.

This dress was inspired by the dresses from the brand I Do Declare. I wanted to make something a little witchy. It ended up looking Very Witchy.

This dress did not originally have pockets. I’ve never really had pockets in my clothes so I assumed I wouldn’t miss them. However, once I started putting pockets into all the new dresses that I made, I did find I missed them in this one.

I ended up putting a pocket into the side of the skirt, but kept it to just the one because this dress doesn’t have side seams. Putting in a pocket requires a bit more work when you can’t just insert it into a seam, so I decided one pocket was enough.

I’ve never had a nice raincoat. When I was small, we always used to have those thin rain jackets you wear over you normal coat. As a student, I realised rain coats are expensive and I never bothered to invest in one.

In 2019, I was finally ready to do so, only to realise that raincoats don’t tend to get made in the style that I like. I wear a lot of big skirts, so I need a coat with enough space in the skirt to support that.

Frankly, this coat was an absolute hack job. I’m still a little baffled that it turned out as well as it did. Somehow, it is still the item I get the most compliments on from strangers.

I’m not sure I would make a raincoat myself again, as I’ve recently been seeing more vintage style raincoats that would fit my skirts in webshops. Making raincoats is kind of stressful, and it’s expensive.
