my name is Sonja, i´m 23 years old and from Germany!!! So is some kind of nickname for my real name.
i discovered this site long ago and i´m nearly everyday on here to look at amazing new projects, i love it!!!
i started sewing when i was 15 and it was clear very early that i wanna do that as profession.
i studied fashion design, i´m a trained ladies bespoke tailor and i´m currently working as a garment technician for underwear and swimwear.
so, sewing (especially sewing) and patternmaking is my life :-)
my boyfriend says i´m a bit excentric and have much spleens... maybe he´s right...
i´m a bit restless about my style... i think it´s never as unique as it could be... so i´m always searching for new influences... and wanna look differently nearly every day!
i like black, red, lime green, cream and violet, opctopusses, seahorses, chocolate, dreden dolls style, steampunk (kinda), rockabilly, uniform style, gypsypunk, pin ups, weird things, tim burton movies and characters, horrorpunk, amelie, sheep, buttons, zipper, cotton fabric, moderately shining fabric not that cheap satin, leopard print, bracelets, halternecks, to be continued...
my friends call me a fashionista punk... ok, maybe i´m a bit addicted to shoes, clothes, jewelry... but i´m a girl, i´m allowed to be like that :-D
i get totally mad when my alarm clock is ringing longer than 2 seconds.
sometimes i think animals are better humans.
i have about 14 piercings and 2 tattoos, to be continued...
i love listening to music, i do that most time of the day.
also, i like cooking and baking, even it´s much work and the whole kitchen is a mess afterwards. most times i bake vegan, it´s really easy.
i´m soooo scared of clowns.
i hang out on this site so often that i sometimes think in english or can´t remember german expressions for words. aaand, my english is much better now!!!
i only wear long trousers when it´s reeeeaaaally cold outside because i think they are uncomfortable.
lack of trousers i have thousands of skirts and tights... and dresses, but no real closet for all of them...
i think i will emigrate to great britain or spain, don´t know why, just have the feeling i will do that one day...
i think my hair grows 10cm over night sometimes
i recently began to read books again after some years of abstinence.
maybe you noticed it, i love exclamation marks and three little points... and i love the ü in my last name, it´s cool, like the crüxshadows!
i hate to write so much i´s, it´s selfish!!!
so, what about you?!

*a cropped lace biker jacket

*a bag and maybe a top and jacket inspired by gypsy punk/parnassus
