Take time to declutter and make room for only what is important.

My goal is to fill my mind, body and soul with health. You become what you surround yourself with.

Question today “Is it making me a better person? ”

Fill yourself to the brim with your passion.  Learn as much as you can.

Turn off the chaos and focus on the beauty of nature and the life that surrounds you. What is the silence telling you?

Be more present
Listen more
Slow Down
Go somewhere new
Enjoy the moment
Get to know what you stand for
Where you are going
What do you live for
Ask more questions
Dream big

May you blossom like the wild flowers in the feilds of your mind

Stay Rad

Bucket list: Learn something new everyday.  Today I explored the library and found this beautiful fairytale of a book for 17th century baroque.

I found myself lost in a world of luxury that I would love to recreate in my life.

There is inspiration waiting to be found!  Turn off the televison a.k.a. hellavision ( we got rid of ours when we minimized the house) and get out exploring. 

Beauty is waiting for you on the other end ♡

May it be rad

My days are filled with daydreams of traveling to beautiful new countries, filled with romantic beauty and endless possibilites. I begin by surrounding myself with the sounds and tangible elegance that I want to experience.

There is nothing more exciting than getting lost inside a vintage shop or taking a walk in the rain. Having a picnic at the park with piano music playing in the background. I am expectant of this passion inside to birth the beauty of dreams into reality.

Even if you are not yet jumping on an airplain, find the time to consume yourself with culture and with exploration. Become the embodyment of who you aspire.

May it be rad!

Dressmaking Tips 101

Learning to sew has been a challenge,but bring it on!

1. Fabric selection- I have learned that the best time to go to the fabric store is on holidays.  They had simplicity patterns  5 for 5 dollars. 

Be it some of the pattern selections are awful…there where a few good hidden treasures. (Can not wait to venture into making my own patterns, as to not get bored, stay tuned! )

My cheapest fabrics have been found at handcocks fabric, but Joanns seems to have good quality fabric as well despite being pricy.

Use different kinds of fabric textures and types for interest.

2. Sizes- know your body measurements. Get someone to measure your waist, bust and center back. 

The first dress I made ended up being huge! The sizes on the back are odd because I had to use a 10 for this dress and it fits like a glove.

image

3. Zippers- I have found that invisible zippers are my favorite opposed to regular.  It looks more professional and finished.

There are certain kinds of feet that your machine need to sew it in. Using a regular zipper foot I broke my needle on the metal, so I found it easiest to put said zipper in by hand. 

image

4. Pinning- using satin is a very slippy process.  I found for the arm holes, bust hem it held together much easier when pinned sideways away from my fabric. 

When I pined it strait the fabric became harder to sew efficiently.  When I pointed it towards the satin, the pins scraped at the fabric.

image

5.Basting- a long stich to hold together the fabric and keep the neck from stretching. 

In order to get the skirt to be A lined the pattern called for 2 basting stitched.  After trying to get the sequined fabric to scrunch the long basing stich broke.

It would probably be easier to break the basting into sections or scrunch the fabric to fit by hand using pins. It also helps to baste after from the back and flip it over to stitch along the waists line from the front.

6. An iron is your new best friend!- I named mine Betty.I go over my pattern pieces with my iron to make sure they are not crinkly.

Ironing the inside as you go makes your garment look clean and holds down the hems better.

7. Cutting pattern pieces – to hold them down in the right spot I use knifes as weight to get a clean cut with more ease instead of pinning them down.

8. Keep clean – I find it easier to sew in my living room that is minimal because we have no furniture in the way to lay out the patterns.

Also it will be more enjoyable as you go to throw away your trash and end threads.  Keep it simple.

I think everyone should give making their own clothes a try.  It is very rewarding in the end,  and I am now addicted.  Let me know if this has helped you or if you have any suggestions to make sewing easier.

Next month I will be working on costumes for the little mermaid! ! (A.k.a. my most favorite thing in the world because I am a mermaid! ) stay tuned for more tips and inspiration to come =^.^=

May it be rad

As I diyed my hair purple I realized that I speak of following your dreams a lot, though have yet to follow my own. Ever since being a child I have dreamed of being a fashion designer. Playing pretend and dress up never ended for me.

As a creative person it is hard to get past our own excuses or to move forward. It can be overwhelming when you are your worst enemy.

Today I choose to believe that you can do anything you want as long as you reach for the stars.

Don’t let anyone discourage you from your destiny, especially not yourself.

So here goes nothing, I am going to start the process to apply for design college.

What did you want to be as a kid?

Join me on the adventure and go follow yours! Just do it!

Nothing can stop you from success ♡

May it be rad

Today we decided to take a random drive and see what happened. We headed into the country and found a beautiful creek walking path!

I was inspired by the colors and textures of nature later at the thrift store to choose bold free flowing floral patterned pieces.

Thrifting is a great way to find original pieces that define your life’s journey.

Going somewhere new everyday is on my bucket list.

May you join me in the adventure
May yours be rad!
