Trough the darkness of future’s past
The magician longs to see
One chants out from between two worlds
A HUNDRED AND NINETEEN DOLLARS? WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SHIT?
Totally pre-ordered this today and I cannot wait!
This’ll cost about $120 - but I WILL get this
Welcome to Covetous Materia - My name is Andrea, I live in Australia and I have been a thrift shopper since I was in High school.
This blog is dedicated to documenting all the retro / vintage / second hand clothing, jewelry and housewares I find. I go to small community thrift stores, charity ‘op shops’, suitcase rummages, pricey vintage/retro boutiques and antique stores whenever I can, I am very lucky most of the time. Finding designer name brands and high quality clothing and accessories at low prices is my specialty.
The ascetics that guide my choices when picking an item are mainly classic styles, romantic influence, quality craftsmanship, elegant design. I am also interested in all things gothic, romantic, traditional and modern gothic a well as Gothic Lolita and Classic Lolita Styles.
I hope you enjoy all the beautiful things I collect as much as I do, I aim to add one post a day - there will be some crossover from my other blogs. Occasionally I will also provide reviews and images of my huge collections of jewelry and objects in the shape of skulls.
I HAVE ANOTHER NEW BLOG :) PLEASE FOLLOW :D
I met with a friend to collect the taobao items I bought in our comm GO. I wore Haenuli’s Stained Glass of St Giles in a black x gold coord even though it was sweltering hot and there were flying ants everywhere ;;A;;
Perfection (and that room, swoon)
I finished it yay! I tried it on and realized I couldn’t zip myself into on my own, so the shoulders fit funny since it wasn’t closed all the way in the back. Also the petticoat is way too small. I kind of thought I could get away with it but I can’t, so tonight I’ll make a quilted petticoat.
I also made a day cap out of left over materials. It’s based off of a design from the 1850’s when the dress is from the late 30’s, but that can be our secret.
Made from five yards of printed linen, the bodice is fully lined with muslin, and it zips up the back for convenience. The garment was sewn and drafted by me.
Total time: 28 hours, four days from start to finish. Total Cost: $36
Most of the time was spend hand sewing, and gathering. Dress fabric was $35, trims on the cap and muslin were a gift, and the zipper was $1.
This would be so amazingly toasty warm to wear.
