Flannel Belladone Dress

When I visited Marvin in America in autumn of last year I bought some pieces of fabric, for my collection ;) I made a dress from the first piece and – SURPRISE_ I amde a dress from the second piece as well ;) To my defense: I didn’t plan that, it just happened! I Bought the fabric at Joann’s in Raleigh. This was the only fabric store I went to, when I was in the US. Because obviously Walmart does not count! Continue reading

Outfit Along 2017

Same procedure as every year! I participated in the Outfit Along this year, as I have done the previous three years. During the Outfit along from June til the end of July every participant creates an outfit that has to consist of at least one knitted and one sewed item. The participants can chat and show their finished items in Andi Satterlund’s Ravelry Group. If you post your finished outfit there you can win a price. As in the years before there are two official patterns. The knitted garment is the newest Andi Satterlund pattern, Anaheim, a cropped wrap cardigan with a lace pattern. The sewing pattern is the Kim Dress by ByHandLondon. Andi published tutorials on the cardigan, and Lauren of Lladybird published tutorials on the dress. Continue reading

MeMadeMay15: Week 4

Week4The last week of may and with it the last week of Me Made May 15 has passed. It was a little more exhausting than the other weeks as I travelled from the far (German) north to the (Italian) south with a short stop Home in south Germany. That forced me not to overthink this weeks outfit and to wear warm as well as summery clothes. The backdrops also changed a lot in the course of this week, here we go: Continue reading

Flowery Belladone

img_20150518_193439I was planning on wearing my racoon belladone to Marvin’s sister’s wedding. But than I ran across another beautiful fabric that was on sale. It is a patchwork fabric just the like the racoon fabric and it only cost ! 10 €/m. It really wasn’t love at first sight. This is not a fabric I would usually buy. I have a phobia against white! When I wear white I am constantly afraid that I could get dirty. And most often I do. I don’t know why, Murphy’s Law or something… But because I kinda was on the look out for a wedding-guest-fabric I gave the fabric a second look and thought that it might just be perfect!

MeMadeMay15: Week 3

Week3I am a little late with my round-up of the third week of me made may 15. The reason for that is that I just returned from a trip to the north sea, where Marvin’s sister got married in a lighthouse. This trip made the picture taking and outfit choosing a little harder, but at least Marvin almost didn’t complain he had to take pictures of me :) Much worse was that I didn’t have access to the Internet! How sucky is that? Continue reading

MeMadeMay15: Week 1

Week1First Me Made May week is over and now it is time to show you what I was wearing!  Turned out that wearing only selfmade garments for the durantion of may is not really possible for me. I first realized that when I needed a rain jacket and afterwards when I went to the gym. I don’t see those kinds of garments as gaps in my wardrobe, it is totally fine for me to not have a self made rain jacket. Continue reading


img_20150413_190152Marvin’s sister is getting married! First thing I thought was: Dresses! Yay! What a great excuse to shop fabrics and sew some dresses. Yes, some dresses! I have quite a few in mind and the one I am showing you today is only the beginning ;) I used the Belladone pattern by Deer&Doe. I fell in love I first saw the pattern! Uuuuu so gorgeous! I cannot remember why I didn’t buy the pattern right away. Anyway, when I ordered the other 2 patterns (Chataigne and Bruyere) it was only natural to order Belladone as well. Continue reading
