How do they say? Never change a winning team? Well, meet my third Seamwork Gretta top! After my first wearable muslin I perfected the fit of the pattern with my second version. My second version which I made out of a mystery rayon crepe has become a summer wardrobe staple. Roughly a year ago I … More Seamwork Gretta III
This skirt has been finished months ago, but you know how long it takes to get some pictures. This is my third version of Megan Nielsen’s Kelly skirt, this time in a dark green wool. I made additional some minor adjustments after I had already altered my pattern pieces for my second version. So this … More Kelly III (Megan Nielsen)
This top makes me feel: 1. smug because I managed to use all my leftovers from this t-shirt. I love a good bargain. 2. really chuffed because I did not have to do anything twice. No seam ripping whatsoever. 3. my skill level is going up because I managed a really nice and flat neckline … More Seamwork Astoria Again
Hi there, I am back again with a quick and simple sew- the Seamwork Astoria t-shirt. I wear a lot of high-waisted skirts, which is why, two years back I fell hard for Deer and Doe’s Ondee. I bought the pattern and made a wearable muslin, which I never seem to wear, because of some … More Seamwork Astoria
This is the first installment on my journey to a blouse that fits me. More precisely, this is already the third installment, but I never posted the first two, because they did not even make it past the finished muslin stage. 1. Mimi Blouse by Tilly and the Buttons: Albeit picking the size according to … More Not there yet. Not even close yet.
I like fitted clothes, the style lines of the first half of the 20th century and a defined waist. So Seamwork’s Jo dress pattern did not speak to me when it was released- but I weirdly enough I immediately fell for the top hack. I never thought boxy tops would be my style but I … More Jo by Seamwork
I picked up this beauty at a fabric remnants table in front of a UVR Connected store in Berlin’s Golzstraße, so I can’t be sure about the fabric contents, because the remnants have no labels. I seem to remember walking around the shop trying to find clothes made from it to check it didn’t contain … More Fabric love at first sight- Seamwork Gretta II
My brother in law gifted me some pottery tools for Christmas, which will come in very handy at my weekly ceramics workshop. While I think they were an excellent gift (thanks again Lucas!), I didn’t know where to store them. Some of the tools are quite pointy, so a loose bag was not an option … More Stick’em with the pointy end!
Well, after I gushed about how much I love my Sew over it Tulip Skirt and my Sew Over it 1940s Tea Dress, I will just continue to do so with SOI’s 1940s Wrap Dress! I think they might be my favourite pattern company. I love the feminine aesthetic and I really enjoy that their … More Anyone shooting a period drama? I have a 1940s dress but apparently no iron.
The Seamwork Gretta Top was among the first patterns I had printed after I joined Seamwork, because I felt drawn to the tie detail and the fact that the top had bust darts. Moreover, I fell for the pattern because I thought it would be great to be able to use small amounts of wovens … More A Seamwork Gretta Top
