I’ve been looking forward to sharing these pics with you since we got back from holiday. We took them on our last night in Sardinia at the beach of our hotel where we pretty much spent most of our time. Compared to the previous post (we took the pics on the second day of our trip) I got quite a tan in just a week! I hadn’t been to South Europe in a couple of years and after living in England I forgot how easily I tan.

Leather Baby Mocassins & Dalton Trousers

Hi lovelies!

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.leather baby mocassins bythisblogisnotforyou.com

Ultimate Trousers #2 – Floral Vintage Fabric

sew over it - ultimate trousers by thisblogisnotforyou.comOops, I did it again! Hope you guys are not bored of me constantly posting different versions of the same patterns.

Not being a student anymore it’s harder to find time to sew and sometimes it’s just easier to grab a pattern that you already traced and fitted.

The Pattern:

I always hated shopping for trousers, so sewing them is just as daunting. I was positively surprised and super happy with the fit of my first pair of Ultimate Trousers and knew that I would be making more.

 Burda Style Midi Culottes 04/2015 #113A by thisblogisnotforyou.comHello 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.

My first pair of (Ultimate) Trousers

Hallo, meine Lieben! You won’t believe it! After so many years of sewing, I’ve finally made my first (wearable) pair of trousers! (Not counting any shorts I’ve made.) Traumatised by hundreds of very unhappy experiences shopping for well-fitting trousers I decided at some point that sewing trousers was very difficult and frustrating and certainly nothing I wanted to try.
