Today I’m sharing two pretty amazing projects with you. One is an oversized coat I made last Winter and didn’t get around to blog until now and the other one is hot off the sewing machine: my first pair of skinny jeans!
Coat pattern: Let’s have a look at the coat first. For this cosy wool coat I used Burdastyle pattern 09/2015 #117A. View B is belted and slightly shorter than View A. The pattern is pretty brilliant as long as you use the right fabric. They’re asking for double-sided wool because it comes without lining. Therefore, it’s a really quick, simple sew. No interfacing, no lining, no bindings. It’s pretty much just three pattern pieces: front, back and back sleeve (plus pockets). The sleeves are two pieces. The front one is cut as a kimono sleeve and part of the front bodice pattern.
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?
Helloooo 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!)
Hello 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.
Hello 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.
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.
