    Mission Underwear: Corset making

    I never imagined that I will put an image of myself in my underwear on the internet. But it has come into this now. I also never knew that one could need a HAMMER when doing a corset, but it is a true story. For my defense, if any is needed, I managed to make an underwear set that covers me almost from ankle to neck. It’s the classic Edwardian era “grandma” underwear. Totally a way to stand out in these days, with all the “Only Fans” Instagram bikini photos. Somebody should by the way make that kind of “Only Fans” account, showing off em ankle a little bit every…

    Grab your eyeball and look

    We have here in Finland an idiom, which is literally translated as: “Put your eye into your hand and look”. That’s used mostly if somebody is looking for something, which, is literally in front of them, and they still won’t manage to see it. Then you might answer this, in with somewhat frustrated tone. Another similar idiom is “to poke a stick into the eye of a person who looks back on things”. It’s meant to be used in situations when somebody wants to use past happenings as a tool in argument or disagreement. My translations weren’t probably the most fluence ones. But hey, free random facts. The reason for…

    Let’s be Derp together

    The valentines gift season is coming, and usually, it’s so hard to decide what to give. It should be both practical, and funny. You know. Hard combo to find. If the future gift receiver is anyhow into sewing, one can give a very lovely teacup pincushion. It’s very instagrammable, and pinterest is full of ideas of how to do one. Old teacups cost around just under 1e in local fleamarket. The more horrible rose ornament teacup one found, the cheaper it is usually. So, back in the funny business. Very overly romantic teacup can be funny as it is, if one gives it to the person whose personal style and…

    The blouse to fly an umbrella

    I don’t know exactly what is my opinion of the loved children books character Mary Poppins. I might have something against her just because she’s so amazingly and unrealistically confident, happy, and energetic. Like, I thought this even as a kid. But I did things against Winnie the pooh, (and almost every character there except the owl and kangaroo) Dr. Seuss, and what not. Mostly I liked the side characters much more than the main. And the same goes for Mary Poppins. As a 6 year old kid I absolutely loved the chimney sweeper man who got to take the watchers up into roofs, and had a very catchy song,…

    Tartan and Lace of the jungle

    Hello all you absorbed cabbages and wicked stockings. Something about month ago it got into the day that I had provenly walked 1 year more in this planet. I got into this age, where some people I knew get their first kids and bought a homes. However, for me age really doesn’t matter, it matters what’s inside. And inside of me, there’s seriously old, and tremendeously bad tempered grumpy man. A man who mostly just wants to be left alone in silence. From my significant otter I got amazing gifts, like, an victorian era measurement tool, and sewingbooks. The other of the sewingbooks were Tilly and the Buttons’ Love at…

    The Sewingstains monster

    Do you have time to talk about boleros? When I started sewing, which, was like, yesterday, I had trouble to find any vintage styled patterns free. You know, after using all your rusty pennies in the machine and some fabrics, the first patterns to simply practise, they could be free, right? Right? Yes. So, therefore, I hopped in the rabbit hole and started to wander around interwebs. I got the itch for getting a sewing machine from YouTubers like Rachel Maksy and Bernadette Banner. But many of their videos don’t include physical old patterns or paid / selfmade ones, so I couldn’t use their help now. After sometime, I found…

    What to wear in the eternity box?

    When there are so many fashion blogs and articles about, like, what to wear in xx happening, and what is the right dress code to work parties, etc, I think we have forgotten one essential thing. It is: What to wear in eternity box? I mean, in the casket? Since open funerals aren’t a thing anymore, it probably won’t matter. We don’t even go as whole bodies to six feet under anymore. No grave, no earthbath..It kinda gives me the morbs sometimes, even though I was too young to make decisions about that back then. But what did people used to then wear and why? That’s actually gonna take us…

    Hello birbs and blokes!

    This is my first blog post since the high school philosophy blog project. That’s wacko. You might think where have you landed? In that case, please go and read my awesome “Read Me” -page. It haves the answers. All of em. Basically, this is my share digital lab space for weird things I get into. There’s a lot of those things. Like, 3d-printing, 3d-modeling, sewing, antique, photography, and so on. Some of em are totally coopered, some of em not. I’m learning and doing various things in my free time, example currently I’m learning some very outdated fashion making. And learn other weird things on the side. There are too…
