Hello everyone! We had a super warm and sunny weekend here in southern Germany – I suspect it’s gonna be bye bye summer clothes from tomorrow on for good. Before I get into the mood to get out all the knits and wools I want to share this cute little top I made this summer.
I made this top with less than 1 metre of cotton fabric and it only took me around 30 minutes to make! I followed Elisalex’s tutorial for drafting a very quick little pattern.
Summer is almost over and I haven’t even shown you any of my summer makes yet! I made a couple cute summer tops this year I’ll share nonetheless, because they’re just too cute not to.
This one is an oldie but goldie! You all probably know the Sew Over It Silk Cami by now. I’m pretty late to join the party – but as I said, better late than never. I always knew this little pattern had massive potential to become a wardrobe staple in many ways, but for some reason it took me a couple of years until I finally bought it. I have no excuses. I probably thought this pattern was too basic to spent money on, but these are actually the patterns you want to invest in! A basic, well-drafted pattern is perfect to first get to fit right and then use as base for endless variations.
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.
I haven’t sewn a lot lately, being still in post-move (and now almost pre-move) mode but I’ve finally managed to photograph some makes I made almost 2-3 months ago! Anyone else knows these problems?
Well, anyway, I wanted to share one of these makes, a more recent one, that I made without using my sewing machine sitting in my parents’ garden.
My little 1-year-old niece was staying with us and about to start walking by herself. To help with walking attempts we thought about making her some soft, non-slippery shoes. They turned out really nice and she actually loves them! Now, two weeks later, she is walking by herself and even brings mummy her mocassins in the morning for her to put them on.
