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
After a bit of a work-related hiatus I actually made something! My husband asked for a hat to wear under his cycling helmet, because the ones I knit for him are a bit too bulky. There are numerous free beanie patterns out there, I settled on this one since it was recommended by a friend. … More A cyclist’s beanie
To cut a long story short: my kid is crazy about dolls, so I made one. The pattern is this one from Stoff&Stil. I think the pattern is fairly priced for what you get and it results in a cute doll, but as before (the bedsnake) I am having trouble with Stoff&Stil’s recommended fabric amounts. … More Meet Conni
Before fall turns into winter I thought I should post my summer pants. They’re the Lamise pants by Pattydoo made in a linen/rayon mix from Stoff&Stil. As with the other Pattydoo patterns I’ve tried, they’re a real bargain at 3 Euros but an absolute pain to assemble since they don’t offer copyshop files. The … More Lamise by PattyDoo or: A lesson in seeing vs. wearing stuff
I joined Seamwork because I was smitten with the Rory Top. I therefore present my second version (see the first here). Again, this is a size 4, albeit my bust measurement puts me in a 6. I changed only two things: I straightened the side seams taking off 2 cm at the waist (8 cm … More Another Seamwork Rory Top
This is just a very quick post of a tote ( Pop the Corks Bag from CUT magazine #12). I made as a birthday present. I used the same modified pattern and instruction like for my first version. I made this tote entirely from my stash, I already had everything apart from the interfacing … More Another Tote
After I joined Seamwork for the year and began research on the first patterns I wanted to make, I read that several people had cancelled their subscription, some of them because they didn’t like Seamwork’s drafting. This made me a bit nervous- did I just spend so much money on patterns that will be a … More Seamwork Kimmy
There really is not much to say about this tee. It is my third version of Elbe Textiles’s free Sage Tee pattern (see version 1 and 2 here), the fabric is from Frau Tulpe. That’s it.
It took me quite a few days of contemplating after I had received their newsletter but in the end I joined Seamwork because they reduced their premium membership to 80 dollars a year. A few weeks prior to that I had started keeping an eye out for Seamwork because I stumbled across the Rory Top … More Seamwork Rory
