Peasant Skirts and the Boho Chic look

A dear friend of mine and fellow artist (Huggie, from http://www.huggieshodgepodge.com/) has completely made my summer by letting me borrow her sewing machine. I’ve been holding out forever to buy one simply because i’m terrified i’ll use it for a week then never touch it again. But I’d really like to expand my shop to more than just knit items (like backing some winter cowls with fleece), I’ve already listed some of my new paintings that i’d been holding off on forever but I brought them to the craft show and got a ton of positive feedback so I listed some of the smaller paintings. I’m terrified to ship the larger prints, i’ve gotten some pretty mangled parcels from USPS  in the past and I’d be really upset if that’s how one of my paintings arrived to a customer.

So the sewing machine. I want to make my own clothes, simple stuff, wrap skirts and dresses, peasant tops and tank tops, nothing flashy or fancy just the basics. and I just can’t find that stuff online that’s reasonably priced. I also want a cape, more specifically a travelers cloak. I’ve got my dream closet on pinterest that I’ve been pulling inspiration from. http://pinterest.com/ireth/fashion-inspiration/ . I love fashion and style and beauty and I think i’m finally finding my own unique style. I’ve graduated from graphic tshirts and jeans! Yay! Etsy has been a wonderful place to find some of these pieces and fingers crossed some might just be making their way into my closet soon!

Some of my favorites from Etsy for this boho chic look:

  1. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to generate a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot
    and never seem to get anything done.

  2. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  3. Valuable information. Lucky me I discovered your
    site unintentionally, and I am surprised why this coincidence didn’t took place earlier! I bookmarked it.

  4. Hello there, You have done an incredible job.
    I will certainly digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this site.
