Armhole Princess Seam dress

 A while back I drafted a few different princess seam dresses. This red dress is the 'armhole' princess seam. If you are interested in finding out a little more about the princess seam here is an article that I found. I have been quite obsessed with the old circle skirt lately, so this time I decided to attach a gathered skirt for the skirt section. I think that I can do a little better with the fit, but for now it is ok:) The navy bag in the last image is a Fickle Sense made bag, which you can find here.

Have you made any princess seam inspired outfits lately?

MUSIC: Telepathe

As a teenager I spent many nights waiting up for late night RAGE. RAGE is an  Australian music video program which features new music (Friday nights) and guest programmers (Saturday night). Like many Aussie youngsters I discovered heaps of new and old music on RAGE. It definitely shaped my musical taste!

One such discovery was a band called Telepathe. I can still remember watching the 'so fine' video clip on a Friday night. I was impressed with their unique and raw electronic sound. So, whilst performing my weekly Blitzgigs (Berlin gig guide website)check I was thrilled to discover that Telepathe were playing a gig at About Blank, Berlin

Last nights performance was full of energy from both the band and the crowd. Their multi layered fusion of sounds certainly drew me in and kept me wanting more! Below you can find the clip for the song 'so fine'. This song just makes me want to dance around like a crazy energizer bunny. Have a listen!

Up coming Berlin gigs to check out:

MUSIC: Molly Nilsson

Fickle Sense has been going for about 2 years now. Our focus has previously been on fashion and sewing, however I am going to change things up a bit. I realised that Michael and I are always on the look out for interesting gigs and events. Much of our weekends are spent checking out gigs, exhibitions, festivals, parties and cultural events... so in an effort to incorporate our everyday routine more within the blog I will be sharing some of our finds and experiences.

So today I would like to share the musical talents of Molly Nilsson. She reins from Sweden and produces a dreamy kind of 80's sound. Unfortunately I am mourning the fact that I found about her Berlin gig a day after she performed. For those of you in the U.S., she is touring throughout September so check out her tour dates on her site
