Outfits and sewing post

Just two outfits this time because last week had such bad weather pretty much the whole city shut down :p

So I stayed home and spent my unexpected free time sewing :) I was planning on baking a bunch also but the pipes in the kitchen froze and the gas company was warning that there would be outages across the state :(

From last monday. I wore the rain boots just for fun but by the end of the day I was super glad I wore them because it had stared to snow/rain hard.

Mori for thrifting and an appointment. So amazingly comfy :) and so many visible layers (shirt, op, skirt, bloomer, coat, shawl).
My hair was half pulled up in a top bun with flowers and a little birds nest.

Henna! I love henna and have been doing it for about 7 years :) With my shopping list (I like having matching supplies, I have pads of paper in many different colors to go with different outfits), matryoshka dolls, and with leaf and ladybug nail polish.

Now some of the things I did during the snowpocalypse

A black fake fur muff, long lace edged bloomers made from a skirt, and

grey furry shoe cuffs :) They wrap around the ankle and tie in front with lace print ribbon.

Soft and warm roomwear :) A long pink nightgown with a fluffy bunny and long bloomers.

A tea/maiden length skirt
I love this pattern :)

I'm super excited about this whole outfit :D please excuse the un-ironed-ness and loose threads. It's a blue skirt with chiffon ruffles, a blue chiffon long vest, flowered apron, an over coat, neckwarmer, and lace and flower pin. The shirt and hat I had already.

I was going for a natural kei feel with lots of layers and details. The overcoat is light and soft, so hopefully will be usefull into spring weather. The skirt I'm excited to use with cream and gold accents for classic loli :) I'm dyeing some rose lace to go above the top line of ruffles (inspired by the brand chantilly) so it's not totally finished yet.

mori-esque one piece (I'm wearing it in the outfit snap above)
the neckline is made with an antique doily.

And my favorite little thing right now, a tea tag necklace! I love the look of cute paper tea tags hanging over the edges of teacups so I made this necklace, it sits hanging off set for a whimsical look and has golden little swirlies in the corner. I want to make a matching bracelet next with several different 'flavors' :)

Next post will be another wig tutorial (I'm editing it right now:) It should be up later tonight!


  1. Oh, I love those furry shoe cuffs!! What an adorable idea~

  2. I love how you make Mori style yours,the blue outfit is really amazing.And...OMG Henna + Matrioshka doll!!! <3 <3

  3. ooh I love your second outfit! Cute cute! And the blue outfit is just gorgeous ♥

  4. Epic post! I love those white bloomers. I'll have to hunt around for some skirts now that I can make into bloomers. Probably time for another thrifting expedition. XD

  5. your outfits are always sooo nice! i am a bit jealous i lost my style somewhere under my sewing table or something.
    your outfits look almost dolly key, i love that so much! i almost forgot about henna. the last time when i did it is literally ten years ago. but it looks so great! it is really well done. i am thinking of doing it to now :D

  6. I love all of the things that you've made! They're all amazing! The furry shoe cuffs are especially cute though.

    And I especially love the Henna! I've been into doing Henna since 1998 (XD sooo long ago) but sort of gave it up for Lolita because I could never make it match.
