Today’s modern 1800


Ahoy! Summerly greetings from Bremen I should say, although I’m already back home at this point! For easter saturday, we went up north to spend the sunny day at my grandma’s and had lunch and cakes with her and my grandaunt at their place. Earlier, we went along the Weser (Bremen’s famous river :D) and took a stroll down the quay! There was a huge flea market but not too many great finds yesterday I must say – why don’t they sell clothing on too many German flea markets? Or at least nice accessoires? Nah, too bad…

I customised this teeshirt on friday night, as I had told you, and it turned out so cute to my eyes. Well, the blue shirt was actually a size XL knit plain tee that I made smaller in its shape by adding a double layer on both sides front (where you can see the vertical seams) and back. Then I pulled up the sleeves a bit and fixed them with two golden apple-shaped buttons on both sides (so cute, innit??) and finally added some white cotton neck decoration which reminds me a lot of 200 years ago fashion! I adore this shirt, although unfortunately it is a wee bit short for a tall girl like me to be worn as a dress. Anyone under 1,65 m could possibly wear it without shorts and leggins underneath!

Today another sunny day and still not tired of it – wheeheee!!

    OK, definitely the most genius DIY ever. The buttons, the lace, and the fit of it are all perfection. I want those shorts, too.
