One point of my "holiday agenda" apart from reading is sewing! Something I love to do but since I don´t have my own sewing machine in Pforzheim, I only get to do when I am home - and that time is limited during the semester. I also want to incorporate more DIY projects on the blog, because I initially started this blog to share my daily outfits and DIY projects as well - and to be honest, I would love to share more of both, so I am trying hard to make that happen. A couple of days ago, I went on a little fabric shopping spree and came back with three fabrics. As I want to share with you the whole process of my projects, today, I am giving you an early insight into what I am thinking of creating with these three fabrics.

Of course, I browsed Pinterest and Instagram high and low for some inspiration and below you see some of my favorites. And I had these three things in mind when I was searching for some inspo: 

GINGHAM TOP WITH RUFFLES: I have a weakness for anything black and white (that´s also what I blame my always growing collection of striped gartments on), so of course, gingham catched my eye as well. It´s the perfect base for an outfit to add some colorful accessoires. Imagine some black jeans, a gingham top and a bright red bag - love it. I don´t know how I got through this year so far with owning only 1 item with the classic gingham print, but I am about to make it two. I saw this top the other day and I fell in love. So I am planning on making a similar one, but for much less. Let´s see how this one goes.

BLUSH PINK CAMISOLE: My love for anything blush pink is no longer a secret and I have various pieces of clothing already covered, but something missing was a blush pink camisole top. I already have a simple black one which I love, so I think a blush pink camisole would be quite easy to make and perfect for hot summer days as well.

RED WRAP SKIRT: I think I´ve mentioned before (here) that I would love to have one of those gorgeous wrap dresses from Realisation Par. With a student´s budget, that won´t be possible any time soon, but instead, I thought I could make myself a red printed wrap skirt. I was actually looking for a red fabric with little white stars, but unfortunately, that was nowhere to be found - even on the internet. I love the floral print though and I think it will the perfect wrap skirt with ruffles - especially combined with some typical "Julia pieces" such as a white shirt and white converse - don´t you think?

What do you think about my ideas? I would love to know what you would like to make out of these fabrics!
