There are fabrics that many of my sewing colleagues can’t do anything with. Cotton satin is such a good example. In the shops you can almost always find it with a small amount of elastane and that’s exactly what makes the fabric so great for me. I’ve used them for a long time, as comfortable stretch trousers or for dresses. So that was one of the reasons why I designed the new Y-Dress pattern for such fabrics. Because the stretch woven fabrics were stacked on my shelf and I finally needed something where I could sew a lot of them 😉

This snake leather print here had been in my stash for quite a while and finally I had the dress for it in mind. It’s supposed to get hot, so I had to wear the narrow pencil skirt. As the 5th Y-dress I was able to get off the needle very quickly, so that I could cut it in the morning and already had the photos taken in the evening. For once indoors, I tried the new (not yet finished) photo corner.

After my last pictures to the little black dress, there came a lot of comments to my ‘much bulky’ shoes, so this time I picked out the finest stilettos that are in my shoe collection. And I almost felt my feet broken. The heels are a bit thinner than my other pencil heels. I already know why I like the fat shoes so much, one simply has the better hold in it and thanks to the plateaus there they are not so high. Well here it’s different, but they are still my one favorites and that’s exactly why they stayed when I was decluttering the rest <3

So to pose in front of a naked, white wall is honestly not really mine, I like pictures outside much better. But everything is well illuminated here. Only I hardly recognize myself, I always think it looks very ‘fake’. Now I just have to find an occasion for which I can wear the dress. My kids & test sewers said, I should try and get a man with it – they would surely run after me. I dare to doubt it strongly, especially since I never go anywhere where I would have the possibility 😛 But I may also simply dress pretty for myself, the little household makes itself finally also lighter, if one feels pretty <3

Love, Carina
