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.

Lottie Blouse for Grandma

I’ve done it again! I thought I wouldn’t but then it happened. I made another Lottie Blouse. Gosh, you must think I’m super boring. To my defense, it’s just such a simple and quick sewing project. And, this time it wasn’t for me. I made this blouse for my grandmother.

I never made her anything before (makes for family and friends happen, but very rarely) and I think she likes it! I made another version of the button up, which is the hack I created for Love Sewing Magazine. Lottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.comLottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.comLottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.com

Cropped Blouse – Burda Easy Pattern

The Pattern:

The blouse pattern is from the Spring/Summer 2014 edition of the Burdastyle Easy magazine, a special edition of the normal Burdastyle mag which comes out only a couple of times a year. Since it’s quite hard to get hold of the patterns later on (they’re not published digitally as the normal Burdastyle pattern are, as far as I know), I always make sure to get my hands on these mags. The patterns are always pretty simple, but pretty and combined they make a beautiful capsule wardrobe collection.

Burda Wrap Blouse

Hey folks! I’m back after a short blogging break during which, of course, some sewing was done. The weather is quite dreadful in London at the moment, so I couldn’t photograph everything I made yet.

I made this blouse two weeks ago before I went back home. It was a quick afternoon sew and the fabric didn’t even cost me a penny.

The Fabric:
