I think I am addicted to the smell of fabrics. Cotton, silk, linen, wool... Especially silk. Have you ever noticed that when you are ironing dupioni silk it smells like a ripe grain in the sun?

Btw if you'd like to see more of my work I am also available here: Flickr and here: Etsy

little Tudor girl

A dress made of silk, satin (high quality, mixed with cotton), brocade and beads. I spent three days to create it and I'll definitely make another period inspired dress in the future :D

A new beginning.

Dear all

My name is Aldona and I am 25 and there is one thing in my life I particularly like. It's sewing. Or actually, should I call it creating? When I was a child I remeber being fascinated with the fabrics, threads and that you could put them together and make amazing things. I also remember cutting my mother's wedding veil into pieces in order to provide my Barbie with a new dress when I was about four years old. She was not very happy I think. My mum of course. As for the Barbie doll I still have her stored in one of many boxes in the attic. And there's a certain reason she has ended up in a box- Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls.

A few years ago I came across Dollfies. And the result: currently I have seven dolls in my room, three floating heads and a box full of shoes and wigs. Of course they are not just sitting and watching me writing this note. My dolls are workaholics who help me eagerly with sewing. And I really hope you like my work and that we have a great time together :)
