Christmas Lolita Meet-up


Last Sunday we had our annual christmas lolita meet-up. It was so cold outside and snowed almost the whole time. But it was nice nonetheless.

We visited the Moritzburg Museum. They have a collection of modern art. Not everything was my taste, but there were also some really great pieces. Before that we were invited to a short organ concert. This was really nice too.

After the museum we went to the museum coffee house. There we all had something to drink and eat and then of course exchanged our presents. My donee got a nail polish, some fabric and a lot of tea. She really liked it, which I am glad of. Sometimes it´s so difficult to find a nice gift. I got a hairbow and a brooche. It´s all selfmade. I really like it, but right now I am not sure with what to wear. But someday I will use it.

My outfit was improvised, because of the weather. But I liked it. It was very cozy. And black and white is always nice. Unfortunately my curls didn´t like the weather. They were so pretty when I undid the pin curl set.

Outfit Rundown:

Blouse - Innocent World
Vest - Mango
Skirt - Metamorphose
 Tights, beret - H&M
Boots - Sencha

1930s pants

I finished these pants already in October. Unfortunately the photos I got did not turn out very well. But I want to show them to you nonetheless.

The pattern is from Wearing History, the Smoth Sailing1930s Sport Togs. I saw them on a lot of vintage blogs and it were some of the only pants I really liked. It was the second Wearing History pattern I sewed.

The fabric is a blue jeans stretch. It´s really nice and soft. Working with it was fabulous. The pattern was also great. Everthing went together very easy. I was between two sizes, but decided on the bigger one, but the pants fit so well. I really love them. I wore them a lot in October and November with tights under them. This was so cozy. But I can´t wait to wear them in Spring and Summer with some nice blouses.


I also plan to make these maybe in a nice white/cream cotton for summer.
