Just a quick post tonight, I have to do laundry and pack for our trip to Seoul this weekend. I hope to go to the fabric market at Damdaemun Market, I’ll post on Tuesday if I find anything good.
A package for my cousin who goes ga-ga over anything polka dotty. They love their polka dots here and whenever I say polka dots in class my Korean students laugh hysterically. I guess it is fun to say, polka dots, polka dots, polka dots, ok, that’s enough now.
A little tunic I made from a hideous thrifted dress. I bought the dress for $2.50 at the thrift shop on base almost embarassed to pay for it, that’s how bad it was. Straight, shapeless, slit up the back at the bottom. I cut off the bottom 3/4 of it just under the pockets, sewed a little seam and I now have a cute little apron-like tunic to wear. I am very happy with it and the pockets are very deep which I like. Being a teacher and occasionally collecting the odd item from a distracted child, I now have somewhere to put said items.
Here it the material close up, it is a dark gray denim material with a flocked velvety flower design. It’ll look cool with some chunky black jewelry, a turtleneck, jeans and black heels. Quick and painless!
That’s all for now, I’ll post on Tuesday with my Seoul escapades.
