Blog finds

I thought I should share two sewing related blogs that I really enjoy – both has very exciting and unique approaches.

This somewhat secretive woman takes sewing and food blogging to a whole new level – both aesthetically and in terms of skills.  She even makes her own shoes! She is very fashion forward, I love this dress/top with a neckline decorated with zippers, it almost look like metal pearls. As I am a nosy reporter I couldn’t help googeling her a bit, her name is Ji Kim and she is a former Parson student

When I prowl Antrophologie and other similar similar retail sites looking for inspiration I often find myself wondering “how do they do that?” Well Suzannah of Adventures in dressmaking has the answers. I love her tutorials on how to knock off seemingly complicated embellishing and other stuff.

    Thank you so much for sharing those blogs. I really am interested in the Adventures in Dressmaking. That Kate Spade top you posted is one I have been wanting to knock off.

    Johanna Thanks for sharing those blogs – I have spied Adventures in Dressmaking and really love it too but Luxuirare is so incredibly special… the work is beautiful and I think it is wonderful that the world gets reminded that someone makes everything. Really amazing stuff.What an inspiration… by the way I looked at your slide show and gee I love your style, you make beautiful things.
