Lately, I was so busy sewing (and reading and knitting in order to muster some willingness towards the cold season) that I completely forgot to blog some of the makes we photographed a little while ago. One of these is another version of my KEIRA CARDIGAN, which I released a few weeks ago:

  HELLO AUTUMN

It was the first day of autumn this week and although I wish for summer to last just a little bit longer, the colder season has undeniably arrived. I found myself wearing woollen socks, comfy cardigans and sipping hot chocolate on the sofa the last couple of days. With the beginning of autumn the weather changed here in Germany. The air is crisper and the mornings are really foggy now. So I try my best to adapt to the changing seasons and find some joy in thinking up my autumn/winter wardrobe and digging out some of my warmer handmade clothes.

Make the Cape: Hello Sewalongers!

Fairy Tale Cape by thisblogisnotforyou.comHello my fabulous sewalongers! My Fairy Tale Cape pattern was released over a month ago and it is about time to host a sewalong! I’m absolutely over the moon about how many of you downloaded the pattern – it’s even #1 in the Top To Sew category on AllFreeSewing.  Thank you guys, you are the best!

The pattern comes with detailed instructions and illustrations, so this sewalong will focus on how to make variations of the cape, such as:

  • drafting and adding a Peter Pan collar
  • adding armholes/armslits
  • adding a full lining
