Recently my method of getting large quantities of fabric without ending up with a dusty wallet, has been curtains. I purchase them at sales and rip up all the seams. doing this I’ve ended up with 20m of linen fabric. It would have been a lot cheaper had I not decided to remove the original dye, only to re-dye the fabric.
Originally I wanted this garment to be a double breasted dress, but I ended up hating the finished result. After a few adjustments, the dress has become a wardrobe favorite and it became essential in the hot Grecian weather. I found it more comfortable than my silk garments.
My dude and I spent a week in Greece, it took me seven years and some bribes and a pinch of blackmail to get him into a plane. The funny part is he actually enjoyed it and now wants to travel the world. it was my first time in the mainland and his first time in Greece. He instantly fell in love and every meal he tasted was the best he ever had. Being the explorer he is, the vacation wasn’t always as relax as I hoped for. But it was filled with discovering «secret» places.
