Hi there! It’s been a while. We’re back from our summer vacation and the weather is finally cooling down enough for me to be able to use my sewing room again. (The drawbacks of having a very light space…) I did get some sewing done, though!

Today I’m sharing one of my most recent makes plus one make that was finished two years ago but never got any blog time.

Hi my lovelies! Guess what?
I’m finally sharing my handmade Dirndl with you!

Man, this is long overdue! I made it in May 2015, which feels like ages ago now. So why would I make a Dirndl if it wasn’t made for Halloween or Oktoberfest?

Burda Baby Dress 09/2013 #147 – Tilda Fabric

Burdastyle Baby Dress 09/2013 #147 by thisblogisnotforyou.comHelloooo my lovelies!

I’m back in Germany! It’s still kinda weird and doesn’t feel real at all at the moment but we’ll get there. I’ve got quite a few projects lined up to be blogged (sewn pre-move) so at least I don’t have to panic blog-wise. And I’ve got my little sewing corner set up with a tiny selection of fabrics for some serious stash-busting action. (I already bought fabric here, oh no!)

Burda Style Midi Culottes 04/2015 #113A

 Burda Style Midi Culottes 04/2015 #113A by thisblogisnotforyou.comHello everyone! Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! Mine has been great so far – had my last day at work on Friday followed by leaving drinks in the evening which was fun and pretty sad as well! Yesterday we hit Walthamstow market and I went a bit crazy fabric and notions shopping, because, who knows, there might be no fabric in Germany! (Or that’s what I kept telling me). And today I’m resting my feet and will tidy up and sort out all my sewing stuff in preparation for the big move.

Jersey Shirt with Gathered Raglan Sleeves

Burda Raglan Shirt 02/2013 #127 by thisblogisnotforyou.comHello gang! Life has been so busy lately that I don’t even have the time to share my makes on time anymore! I made this jersey shirt in October.

The Fabric:

I got this cotton jersey with a super cute mythical creatures print from stoffe.de (myfabrics.co.uk here in the UK) which even was delivered in person by lovely Tine who spent a couple of days in London a little while ago. Apparantly, they don’t have this fabric in stock anymore, but they still sell three very similar prints. (Yes, I am aware that it’s a children’s fabric, but I will wear it anyway.) The fabric is of a really lovely quality and still looks great after a couple of washes.
