A New Crochet Top: Camouflage Net Top

Camouflage Net Top
The work on my current project is progressing very slowly, there is a lack of time and energy – but I’m not giving up ;-)

Meanwhile, I still have a project from last year to present with pictures also from last year: The Camouflage Net Top!
As soon as spring comes, I’m looking forward to finally being able to wear this :-)

Yours,
JessiCat

New Sandra-Jewellery!

Mermaid Earrings
This year doesn’t seem to get any better than the last two…
I am not well – so I’m always looking for little things to cheer me up.

These little things also include the new jewelry that Sandra made for me to match my great new boots and I would like to show it today:

Emerald Swirl Earrings and Mermaid Earrings

…and yes, the boots will certainly make an appearance at some point, but not today ;-)

In the hope that joie de vivre and creativity will soon be a part of me again and that I can share them with you, I wish you all the best and until the next post!

Yours,
JessiCat

Doomslug & Boomslug

Doomslug & Boomslug
Here is my interim status after my surgery: Finger is still there and healing – but slowly. Can’t sew properly again yet…
but planning and typing with one hand is ok ;-)

So until I can continue, let me introduce Doomslug & Boomslug to you!
I hope you find them as cute as I do ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

Happy New Year 2023!

This year will be better – this time for sure – always stay positive, I’m told ;-)

The pandemic has been declared over, events are taking place again and will we overcome all other crises too?
Get up, keep going – we have to…
Crafting, sewing, crocheting, dreaming of new projects, in short “creating something” helps me with that :-)

With this in mind, there is now a brief preview of the projects that have already been completed, which I would like to show. Much of it was already on this list last year ;-)

  • 2016: Kya
  • 2018: Flapper Dress
  • 2021: Archer Vest
  • 2021: Badass Tailcoat
  • 2021: Purple Spiderweb Top
  • 2022: Crochet Shrug
  • 2022: Camouflage Net Top
  • 2022: Doomslug & Boomslug

There are two works in progress, one of them a big one again ;-)

  • a crochet crop top
  • an outfit still untitled consisting of
    • skirt (already finished)
    • jacket(already finished)
    • corset (in progress)
    • hat (in progress)
    • bag (in planning)
    • petticoat (in planning)
    • blouse (just an idea so far)

…and the ideas of the last two years have not been forgotten and a few new ones have been added:

  • a Victorian crocheted cape
  • another Victorian bustle dress
  • a less self-made, but mainly bought cosplay in progress (from Avatar – The Last Airbender)
  • another one (from Star Wars) only as an idea so far ;-)

But all ideas and works in progress have to rest in January because I won’t be able to use my hands as usual for a while due to an operation.
Updates will follow soon :-)

Yours,
JessiCat

…what had to leave the Klamottenkiste… Part 6

Russian Flower
It always sounds so sad when I write these posts – and sometimes it is!
The reason for this was definitely nerve-wracking – because my closet practically collapsed!!!

But this post is not sad at all, because I am so happy that some of my beautiful works have ended up with loved ones who still wear and appreciate them!

This time I gave my little sister Lisa and my dear stepmother Marlies a lot of nice things.

So is my beloved Russian Flower with the Russian Flower Bag and the Russian Flower Choker now in good hands. Here with me, it really only hung on a dress form for years because it didn’t fit me anymore.
The same goes for the cheerful Picknick Dress with the Bag for the Picknick Dress. That suits Marlies much better than me ;-)
She also got the Tea Pot Dress which she looks lovely in too :-)
I also gave her the last remains of the Bold Balloonist – now the outfit should almost be back be completely in one place.
Also the Olive Green Lace Knit Wrist Warmers and the DonÔÇÖt Blink Shirt went to Marlies!

To wear the wonderfully cuddly warm Night Blue Poncho with the Night Blue Wrist Warmers Marlies and Lisa almost had a fight – I think they can take turns wearing them now in winter ;-)

My often worn Ready Made has been way too small for me for a long time, but Lisa fits in and so it ended up with her :-)

But now you mustn’t think that I now have room in my closet!
At least there should now be a very small gap so that I can start my new steampunk project ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

Happy Halloween and a new costume: Steampunk Pixie

Steampunk Pixie
Since there is no Halloween party for me this year either, I would like to at least show my costume, which I actually wanted to wear at the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention this year, but could not wear because of the low temperatures:
My Steampunk Pixie with her Pixie Wings :-)

Marlena Wels took the enchanting pictures – thank you very much for that!
I’m really proud of this costume and it has now got suitably beautiful pictures too ;-)

I wish you all Happy Halloween and hope for a big party next year with lots of great costumes!

Yours,
JessiCat

Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention 2022

Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention 2022 - Day 1
This year the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention took place again after a two-year pandemic break at Minett Park Fond-de-Gras in Luxembourg and we were there :-)

It was so nice to see our friends again and to marvel at so many wonderful costumes! :-D

I had to adjust my own costume plans shortly beforehand: Since the temperatures were lower than expected, I couldn’t wear my planned costumes.
In this way, my Mourning Robe from 2014 was allowed to get a taste of Fond-de-Gras air and show itself at the convention :-)
For the second day I had to improvise something: The well-worn Airship Captain Diva-skirt, combined with Eric Aisling’s stunning leather corset and harness made a great new costume – you can see a lot of pictures of it in the gallery :-)
The pictures are by Eric Aisling, Paul Jean Marchand and Stefan Hepp, among others.

For the next Anno 1900 I wish for warmer weather so I can finally show my new costume that I finished in 2020!
But you’ll see it beforehand, because I’ve already had a fairytale shoot with it and I’m looking forward to showing you the pictures and the detailed costume description very soon ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

A New Boho Crochet Skirt

Boho Crochet Skirt
The last summery post of this year is about that Boho Crochet Skirt.

Now I’m happy that after a two-year break due to the pandemic, we’re going back to the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention in Luxembourg.
Maybe I’ll bring some pictures of it :-)

Yours,
JessiCat

A New Outfit: Caf├ę au Lait Shirt with Wrist Warmers

Caf├ę au Lait Shirt
And here is another one of my countless crochet works, the Caf├ę au Lait Shirt, complete with matching Caf├ę au Lait Wrist Warmers.

Since I’m still very unproductive, there will still be only crochet works.
But I’m sure that will change again soon ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat
