WIP

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I updated, but I have not stopped doing fashion stuff.

In fact, I really need to keep posting updates, as there are so many things happening, and they are fun.

Nothing is fun about my current employment though. It had turned into a 8-4:30 position Monday - Friday. I am not a morning person, so adjusting to this schedule is very, very hard for me. However, that means I have nights and weekends, which is definitely a very rare thing indeed for my industry.

But because my work has a uniform, that means no room to do anything fun other than changing my hair color, so... I am slowly changing my long, black hair into something different. This is what it looks like so far.



I feel like a doll now too! LOL...

... and because I am kind of stuck working at a job with a uniform, I am slowly working on building a new wardrobe from many different kinds of patterns. I love custom clothes and it is hard for me to find anything that fits just right at the stores, so custom making clothes it is.

This is a sweater that I am working on, soon to be sweater dress getting ready for upcoming (or already here) cold weather:



This is the first thing I knitted for myself in quite some time. I am happy to have a chance to knit at all! Work usually wipe me out. There will be lots of different road trips I will be on and knitting is something I can do while in the car.



I also got some books for inspiration/works for later. I am starting to get into the lolita style. I think it is so cute, but a lot of things out there will never fit my body. When I saw these books I was super excited... until I saw that the "large" size is 88cm (34.6"). I am sorry boys and girls but in the US that is about a small in junior stores. I think it will be fun to have some of these clothes for my wardrobe (and later dolly wardrobes), but I gotta figure out how to make it fit me first. I am researching on how to alter these patterns to fit me before even having the paper drafted. It is challenging but I think I can do it.

I think this is enough of an update for now. Betty is still making eye candy. I had just slowed down quite a bit. Boo!
