you might have wondered, why there was no update on this blog for such a long time….
Well… things have happened!!
There were more new sewing students than ever and
from the start of this year I have been happily working on some great projects of Wedding Dresses.
In example for a german, a french and two british ladies. We did a shooting under the cherry blossoms with my good friend Martin Holtkamp and I wil create a new website soon for the service of Order-Made Wedding Dresses and Wedding Dress Adjustments.
Then by the time being I was so round 🙂
Then on May 11th, my son was born and after 4 months now, he is the cutest thing and we are all a little bit happier than we were before. Make babies, everyone! They are great!!
Then from the 1st of July I started with sewing lessons again and this guy came along. For a month he stood in Tokyo to learn sewing and to prepare for his fashion studies at Parson’s in Paris. Look what we created in this 4 weeks (he didn’t even know how to thread the sewing machine at the beginning!!)
With him, again a new group of sewing lovers came along and we make a lot of projects, such as the “Werner Bag” a skirt from African Textiles, and a Berimbau bag, used while playing Capoeira.
Then I spent time again with the girls at the German School in Tokyo for the Summer School and we did these cool shorts (the participants were only 11 and 12!)
And last but not least, one young lady was contacting me to make her bridesmaid dress for a wedding in Brazil. It had to be a certain yellow, so we went together to Nippori, bought this wonderful yellow silk and together we made up our minds to create this ensemble of a shorts, a corsage and a wrap around skirt.
Then finally I had my Summer holiday in Germany with the whole family and now we are back for a new start of the Sewing Circle!!
You are all very welcome to start stitching again with me. Hope to see you sewing soon!!
