It all started with wanting to make a kimono with a unique bohemian material, in an attempt to save money. Honestly, if I could design and sew my entire closet, life would be a dream! But perhaps this is the beginning of Onivié's atelier? :D

I am by no means a professional seamstress, but designing and sewing this 'kimono turned dress' piece was a lot of fun! I got a few lessons on measuring, cutting the material, pinning, sewing, the ins and outs of using a sewing-machine, but I still have a lot more to learn. Nevertheless, it just feels good wearing one's creation!

So, here's to a exploring a rekindled relationship with my sewing machine? We'll see. :D

Stay Smart; Stay Beautiful,
