no no and no!

Why can't I remember that doing too many things at the same time is not necessarily a good thing. I start a new job in 1 week (eco-friendly event planner...I'm uber happy!) and I'm moving in a new condo in 2 weeks (hello...also uber happy!). So the "Oh, I should totally make clothes (I don't even know what I'm doing most of the time) and sell it on Etsy" is not a great idea! Instead, I will make clothes for me because, lets face it, it's important to look cute in front of new co-workers and neighbours! Have a lovely week :)

Awesome dress Claudia. I love it (and the last one you made as well, in the Nani Iro, I think?)

I went home empty-handed yesterday after a depressing afternoon spent trying to find something adorable to wear this summer. That pic just confirmed my suspicions — I must make myself something. Cool pattern — love the colour you picked for the top part.

Congrats on finding a cool job too — sounds right up your alley!
