A (slightly late) Happy New Year everyone!
As you might have (not) noticed, I took a little blogging break after Christmas, which was necessary due to being away over the Holidays and starting a new job this month. But now I’m back and filled with an endless amount of sewing mojo!

Too bad I mostly only have the weekends now and the wedding is coming closer, so I am (hopefully) channelling all this energy into making a gorgeous wedding gown. Don’t get too excited, I’ve only just started (shame on me!). I’ve been procrastinating for months and now really have to get going. I’m not yet worried as I work best under pressure. Right now I’m working on the muslin, but this will be a seperate blog post.

Hello again!

After reviewing the pattern and showing you my wearable muslin, it’s time to get out the actual project I was working on.

The pattern and fabric used for this project are courtesy of They very kindly offered me to pick some fabric along with a pattern for me to try. (As usual, all opinions are my own.)

I wrote about the pattern, the Agnes Top by TILLY AND THE BUTTONS,  after I made the puff sleeve version as a muslin.

Hello sewing-friends! Hope you’re having a great festive season!
My mum-in-law gave me a handmade (!) sewing (!) advent calender, which is absolutely awesome! Every day I get a new suprise sewing supply, notions or fat quarters of beautiful fabrics. It’s the best gift ever! Too bad it ends on the 24th – it really could go on for ever. It never was so easy to get out of bed in the morning!
