It is spring and my to sew list grows and grows. I am highly motivated and I have a lot more ideas than I have time to realize them. At least not all of them. Two new shirts recently made it into my wardrobe. Because I have made and written about both patterns several times I will show you both new shirts at once. Here we go.
After finishing the dress I showed last week, I decided that now was the time to sew something foolproof. And something fun. Ans what is more fun than making and wearing a flannel plaid shirt? I love sewing shirts, I love working with woven fabrics and what I love the most is cutting plaid on the bias :) And another plus: flannel feels great against the skin. To me flannel shirts are secret pajamas :) Continue reading
This autumn I seem to make man third repeats of one pattern. I like to think that is a good sign. I feel like I have found some basics that I can rely on like the Ginger Jeans pattern or the Kelly Skirt. It is more fun for me to try new patterns but recently I also found joy in redoing a pattern and trying to make a really clean finish. I tried that with the project I’ll show you in a second. It is my third attempt on Butterick B5526, my favourite and reliable shirt pattern and I am really satisfied with the way it turned out! Continue reading
Marvin asked me if I could sew him a jacket. So I ordered fabric at Stoff&Stil. And because there was a big sale I ordered some pink-orangeish light cotton fabric for me too. At this point of time I haven’t even gotten started on Marvin’s jacket. I haven’t even bought the pattern. But I already made a blouse from the fabric I bought for me. To be fair I have to say, that Marvin won’t need the jacket until autumn and I really needed this blouse (haha), plus his fabric is gray and mine is pink. So I didn’t have a choice, did I? :)
I already told you: I have tons of this Raspberry Ikea fabric. The fabric was a blanket once! A real huge one! Would I have known that there are larger blankets than my 1,55 m blanket, I would have bought it! There’s nothing better than huge blankets. But, now I am stuck with my only slightly oversized blanket and needed to make something else out of this super oversized blanket. I already made a dress and pants out of it and I love wearing them, the fabric is breezy and felt really good against my skin. Also I like the raspberries, they make the dress so summery.

Aster – that is the name that my grandmas dog had, when I was little. So you see, it was inevitably that I needed that new Colette Pattern that’s called Aster I had some other reasons to buy it, too. For one it was on sale when it was released and I had a coupon code, because I receive the newsletter. For another I liked the pattern and another blouse couldn’t hurt, I really don’t have that much basics in my closet, and so I gave it a try! Continue reading
I got the Deer&Doe fever! They offer such beautiful patterns! And since a overcame the barrier of buying their paper patterns I am unstoppable! The first pattern I sewed were those adorable Chataigne Shorts! I just recently finished a Chataigne Skirt. But today I am going to show you something different: the Bruyere Blouse. I want to shows it to you as long as long sleeve garments are appropriate to the weather ( and I hope this won’t be for too long now :)) Continue reading
