I used my new sewing machine for the first time some days ago. I test-sewed a pleated skirt but the only fabric I had was to heavy, so the pleats did not look so good and I made it to big. But it was just a test so whatever :–) I mainly sewed in some clothes and fixed some broken ones, this shirt I found in a thrift shop a while ago for example:

To cold to wear this outfit outside though ):

DIY Addams-dress

I absolutely love peter pan collar dresses and shirts, I’ve had one from H&M that I sold to a girl recently because it was to short for my tall body. I’ve been planning on sewing one for a while now, yesterday was the perfect time to do it since it was raining and the atmosphere was just to cozy to not do some crafting and I had braided my hair, so why not go all in?

These are some clothes I’ve bought from a thrift shop. I haven’t used the turtleneck sweater for a while and the shirt is to big for me. So I decided to turn it into a fabulous Peter pan collar-dress thingie. Now this is not exactly a tutorial, but im gonna show you how I did c:

Simply just sew it onto the turtleneck, not all the way to the buttons.

I will have to make some adjustments though. I mean, it’s a stretchy turtleneck and the collar is not stretchy, so it could easily break. When I get a place to put my sewingmachine im going to attach a zipper in the back across the collar so that I can “fully” sew the collar on
