Month after month I was addicted to crochet, but this week I rediscovered sewing. The craving for sewing comes when I find a beautiful fabric that I must have or when I see a really nice pattern. This week I saw both, so I started sewing two different dresses. The first one I show you now, the second one is minutes from being finished and will be shown later this week.
I used about 3x1½ meters of fabrics for this double dress (will be worn by a two year old), which has a major twirl factor. I love the combination of colors of this fabric: pink, fuchsia, red, orange, lime, aqua and black.
And for the readers who follow this blog because of the crochet projects: I’m still not bored with crochet, there’s even a project on the way that involves both crochet and sewing, so don’t drop out yet J.
I saw two movies this weekend that I can recommend, though both are not entirely new (in fact they are rather old; 2007 and 2008).
Jolene – to be true, as a Dolly Parton fan, at first this movie got my eye because of the title, but when I saw it was with Jessica Chastain (one of my favorite actresses since I saw The Help and The Debt), I had to see it. The movie tells about the four marriages of Jolene and how she got from one man to another. Very diverting!
Gone, Baby Gone – about the search for the missing child of an addicted mother, a couple of sickening people who unfortunately live also in this world, and some people who are trying to do the best they can. One big ethical question in the end…
