Summery pink outfit: Brume and Eucalypt

Hello everyone! I wanted to make a more summery version of my beloved Deer and Doe Brume skirt. I just realized that I haven’t blogged about half of them yet, so I guess you don’t know of my eternal love for this skirt. I now have 6 versions of this skirt in my closet. My […]

Tiny Dancer Bellasigma

Are you getting tired of my Bellasigmas yet? Because I’m not! As much as I love the Belladone bodice, I guess I’m a sucker for the simplicity of a darted bodice. You can find my previous iterations here and here. This is my favourite one so far because of the fabric. I’m pretty sure I […]

Sophia Brown

So, I went a little bit overboard with the photos. What can I say? This dress makes me feel like a sassy movie star! Especially when I throw on a pair of sunglasses. It fits like a glove without being overly tight. It’s sexy without being overly revealing. It hugs my curves in all the […]

Bellasigma wax print

I love this dress so much I don’t want to wear it. Do you know what I’m talking about? It’s so pretty you don’t want to wear it out. I made this dress last year but it still looks like new, no? I hoarded the fabric for a couple of years deciding what to make […]

über sexy Ondee + Brume outfit

This outfit combination makes me feel oh so sexy, while being comfortable at the same time. How many outfits can do that??? Not many, I tell you. This combination is brought to you by Deer and Doe. The Ondee sweater is a cropped top perfect for pairing with high-waisted skirts and dresses. The Brume skirt […]

Jumping on the Anna Bandwagon

I’ve had the Anna dress pattern from By Hand London for quite some time now. Ever since their kickstarter campaign, actually. This is not unusual for me. I very often get patterns when they’re on sale and then forget about them until I get a wave on inspiration. I don’t know how I managed to […]

Seafoam + Coral Chardon

This is the Chardon skirt by Deer and Doe. When I saw all the pretty colours of twill at Fabricland in Calgary this spring, I just had to get some. These two colours go really well together and I knew they would make a perfect Chardon skirt. I know it’s now fall, but I’ve been enjoying the […]

Red Floralex

I wanted to recreate this gorgeous red dress I found on Pinterest. It’s being marketed as a bridesmaids dress, but it’s of course a lovely cocktail dress as well. From the way the skirt holds it shape, I think the original dress is made from a scuba-like fabric. This is a hacked version of the Elisalex bodice paired with […]

Circle Skirt App Review

Do you like circle skirts? I was kind of indifferent to the idea, but I love love love them now!! When I saw this floral textured fabric at Fabricland, I immediately knew it would become my first circle skirt. I don’t entirely remember what tuned me into them. I think I saw a few dresses on […]

Bellasigma in linen

Hello everyone! Welcome to my new and improved weblog! I’ve been working on it for quite a while and I’m so excited to finally be launching, even though I still have a few kinks to work out like the featured images. I’ve added a few new features, like “My Closet,” where I’ll be keeping a portfolio […]
