Pinterest Friday

My favorite Pinterest finds of the week (follow me here:  http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/).

I’ve cited photographer/etc where possible–that’s the down-side to Pinterest.  A lot of authership/ownership is lost in re-pins.

This Week

You may have noticed that my shops are all on vacation this week.  Only a temporary hiatus while I catch up on orders and regroup a bit.  I expect to be back up and running in a couple of weeks.

As mentioned, I’m using this time to catch up on orders.  But FIRST, I had to complete the doll pairing for my nieces:

Image

A red chiffon skirt/dress (shown as a dress since is so LOOOOOOONG):

Image

A couple of sparkly cowl-neck tunics flew off to the UK:

Image

An Alice dress is in the works for a lucky actress:

Image

And a striped tunic, bustle and military hat came off the machines, too:

Image

All-in-all, a productive week so far.  Hope yours is going well, too!

TnT Tuesday

Image

I love these crop tops.

I have a couple myself, and need to make a few more.

I’m a huge fan of layering, you see.

Image

A friend once laughed at me, when I lamented having had a hard time figuring out what to wear one day–this is back when I had an office job.

He said–“What do you mean?  All you do is:  tank top, t-shirt, cardigan, and GO!”.

Which hit it on the head.  That really nails down my clothing–tank top, top over that and cardigan, if the second top has short or no sleeves.

Image

Which is why these are a great wardrobe addition for me.  Tank top (possible two in contrasting colors) and crop top.  Done.  Comfortable, easy to wear, and goes with anything.

I have a few new fabrics to make some of these out of–wild prints!  PRINTS!  I never use wild prints, so I’m excited to get making them.  Once my stack of orders is diminished, that is.

TnT Tuesday

Image

I love this black and gold striped fabric.

Image

Sadly, I haven’t been able to find it for some time now.

Image

Made into a stunning bustier (which I loooooove).  I’ve made these for a few years now.  This is the last of the line, until I can magically acquire more fabric (fingers crossed).

Image

Lined in black twill.

Image

Flexible boning sewn into the lining.

Image

Grommets and a modesty panel in back.

Image

So pretty with formal as well as casual looks.

Image

bust: 29-32 inches
waist: 25-28 inches

Just In

New fabrics arrived over the weekend, and I can now create ruffle leggings in white as well as red.  (in addition to the cream, black, blue, and multi that are ALREADY offered)  Capri or full-length!  Send me a msg if interested as I don’t have the new color options listed in any of the shops yet.

Happy Monday!

Pinterest Friday

Obviously my feelings of being overwhelmed have continued on, undisturbed, as evidenced by my almost-complete disappearance here.  Maybe next week will be better.

Until then, I give you my favorite Pinterest-finds this week.  Have a lovely weekend!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all!

Image

I have a wee bit of Irish in me…..just a drop or two.

(green scarf found here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/104299214/green-scarf-extra-long-scarf-knit-scarf?ref=shop_home_active_9)

I don’t really celebrate the day, but I know others do.

So, have a lovely day, wear a bit of green, and have a designated driver!

Bustlin’

New in the shop over the weekend:

Image

The bustles are all being offered on a made-to-order basis, too.

I’m trying to beef up the shop in between orders.  I have a whole stack of things that are ready to be sewn up, and I try to add to it every weekend, as well as subtract from it (ie: sew things up) every week.  Problems only arise when I’ve fallen out of love with whatever idea I had had when I cut whatever-it-is out.  Then….well, then it goes to the bottom of the stack.
