Sneak peak of my new DIY

Hi guys,
Here are some details of a dress that I'm working on for a friend of mine.
Quite a simple, elegant design made out of 100% cotton with a floral print.
Keep an eye on Couturella to see the full design!

DIY faux Fur coat

Hi dear readers!
Here's one of my latest creations. Even though spring is in full swing, I just finished this coat. Couldn't get to finishing it earlier, but now it's ready to wear, for next winter.
So if you're thinking of working with (faux) fur yourself, do realize that it is nothing like cotton or polyester. I actually used a stanley knife to cut the fur. This way you only cut the underlying layer, and not the hairs, which you would, if you would use scissors.

Also, make sure you use a sewing machine that is powerful enough to sew the fur, and make sure to remove all the excess hairs, they might get stuck in your machine.
I hope you like it!

DIY lace LWD

Hi there,
So today I've got for you guys a little white dress. I made this one a while ago, and unfortunately it's now too cold to wear it. The base of the dress is made out of a stretchy thick fabric and on top of it there's stretchy lace. I used these fabrics to avoid having to use a zipper, because I thought it wouldn't do my design any good. If you're planning on making such a dress, take into consideration the stretch of the fabric, otherwise it'll end up being to big. You can measure how much it stretches per centimeter or 10 centimers, for it to still be comfortable (you don't want to be stuck inside of it) and apply this factor when your drawing a pattern. Anyways, here it is!
