Alder ShirtDress version Bidon

Grainline Studio

L’ Alder Shirtdress de Grainline Studio fait partie des projets que l’on pourrait envisager comme accessible après 2 ans d’apprentissage couture. Pourtant, cette réalisation fût un challenge que je n’aurais pas soupçonné !    Commençons par le début.   J’avais pour projet de faire une première version courte en guise de toile suivie d’une robe […]

Robe Aldaia version Bidon

Pauline Alice

Le patron Aldaia de Pauline Alice, c’est un peu, selon moi, le patron indispensable pour une patronthèque de débutante. Tout d’abord parce qu’il permet un bon nombre de combinaison possible ce qui est économiquement très intéressant. Ensuite, par ses multiples possibilités, il s’adapte à toutes les morphologies et ça c’est juste hyper important ! Faire […]

Short Châtaigne version Bidon

Deer and Doe

Cela faisait un moment que j’avais envie de me coudre ce short châtaigne ! J’avais d’ailleurs acheter le patron, il y a plus d’un an mais je n’avais pas trouvé l’occasion de le faire. Avec l’été en approche et mon bidon grandissant, c’était la bonne occasion pour me lancer dans cette réalisation. En commençant ma […]

Jupe Cascade

Megan Nielsen

Que vous dire de plus sur cette jupe Cascade que je n’ai pas encore dit dans mon dernier podcast. Super agréable à porter, légère, avec une allure folle ! Il n’y a pas à dire, je me sens bien, j’ai même envie d’aller plus loin, je me sens belle dans cette jupe ! Je ne […]

Kylie On Stage


I have to say, I’ve never been a big fan of Kylie Minogue. To be honest, the only thing I can recalled from her, is a glitter shiny skinny short, dancing on a bar with hot guys around… I believe the song was Spinning Around back in 2000 ( Jez I’m old) … I knew […]

Capsule Wardrobe – First Step


Let’s talk today about Capsule Wardrobe. I find this concept really fascinating. I don’t know if you heard about it but, it’s quiet simple and can help to get organised with yourself. Kind of life saver trick. It’s also a good way to re-think your wardrobe differently than what’s gonna be my next purchase. I […]

Sew and the City – Pilot


You know what, screw you March ! It’s time for us to talk about my new resolution for this year 2016 : No shopping anymore ! I’m serious, nothing AT ALL. This year, I’ll sew my own clothes ! I thought this was a quiet important news to share with you as I think this […]

LA 2014

Martine Travels

Is Happiness boring ? I guess so, I mean…. not really inspiring certainly. Unknown John L. used to say : “life is what happen while you’re making plans” Well, dude, Life’s going fucking fast now. I can’t believe it’s been two years since I’m officially “work active”. No more begging for getting paid. I got […]

The Grampians National Park

Martine Travels

Before talking about my week-end to The Grampians National Park, let’s chat about life ! Time might be tough… alright, maybe too much dramatic to start a post, specially when it’s just to describe how I run after time at the moment… I miss my sleep, I miss my days doing nothing and waiting for something […]

Sponsorship : The Golden Ticket

Sorry my French

It’s been a while since I wrote a post. I wanted to have something very special to write. I wanted to know more about my future, and a possible sponsorship. I was waiting someones to tell me if they want me to stay or if I should go back to my past. So I waited, […]

True job, Maturity and Nail Polish chipping


I should start this post differently but you know time made things change and even if I still want to speak about the «true job», I just want to start with another subject: Maturity. That’s a word I hear a lot here. I’m wondering if the aussie people use it differently than me ? Last […]

Report of 9 months in Australia

Sorry my French

Things change. People change. When I have a look to my last 9 months in Australia, I realise how much I changed and how I’m not the same person anymore. 9 months in Australia, 3 months left before a possible go back home. I still don’t know if I could stay here after August. My work […]
