Yesterday was a day of adventure, as ~Keiisah
and I ventured out on a journey to discover as many opshops as we possibly could, armed only with my poor navigation skills and Keiis yellow stockings. Turns out, there are a lot of opshops. And so, with many U-turns and misdirection, my attempts at sewing an entirely new wardrobe of clothing have begun!
I bought as many second hand clothes as I could, because my poor University student lifestyle does not allow me to buy bolts of decadent fabrics
Unsurprisingly, my purchases soon became a small mountain of spoils in the back of Keiis car. The entirety of which I hope to turn in to Lolita-y, ruffly delights.
As of last night, I have started resizing a huge blazer, bleached the shirts back to white, and turned a tired pair of old shoes into pretty gems. You can see the pictures on my blog!
We also found an antique British Naval uniform in an antique shop, complete with named sword! The owner of the store was very nice, and moved it around so I could take pictures. It was a truly awesome outfit ... so much detail D:
