Low budget month

This has been quite a tough month finanicially, as I've been trying to save up some money. The reason for this is that my boyfriend and I are going to Mallorca in july! Yey, my first southern trip and my first "real" holiday! So I've tried to resist going to fleamarkets and the like, even though I can't say that I usually spend much money there...

Of course, this had to be the same month that a haircut could no longer be put off (last time I went to the hair dresser was in december) and the month that my car battery died, the car had it's yearly MOT and had to be fixed and so on. Instead of buying new (second hand) stuff I've been trying to sew a bit more this month, and alter things I've bought earlier. Or that was the plan. When my boyfriend suggested we spend a saturday morning at the fleamarket, how could I resist?

I had seen this jeans top in the shops about 4 years ago, but thought it was too expensive. It wasn't anymore!

This cropped winter jacket had a bit of a 50's feel to it, so I got it. Feels a bit silly as I won't be able to use it for a few months but hey, it was only 3 euros.

I'm still working on the project from my last post, as well as another big project; I'm making myself a dress form, DIY-style. Find out how to do it here. Right, now I'm gonna try and work up some inspiration to do some sewing.

Ihania asuja! Ja sopivat hyvin sorjalle vartalolle. Mallorcalla olen käynyt ja pidin kovasti. Sattumoisin olin lomaromanssin pauloissa (siitä on postikin, insane in spain).
