Brondee Frankenpattern

I’m back blogging with a frankenpatterned T-shirt. This tee is a combination of Deer and Doe’s Ondee (top part) and Jennifer Lauren’s Bronte (chest downwards). I originally bought this beautiful and quite unique fabric (Stoff&Stil) especially for a tee and took extra care planning and making wearable toiles in order not to waste it. The … More Brondee Frankenpattern

Baby Sun Hat

Spring temperatures are finally here and with them a lot of sunshine. So I made a sun hat for the baby. The Reversible Bucket Hat from Oliver + S is a free pdf pattern that comes in four child sizes. Since my printout was not to scale (too small, don’t know how that happened) I … More Baby Sun Hat

I made a book

This is my first Bloom Sweatshirt (La Maison Victor May/June 2017) made with a very soft and drapey Stoff&Stil brushed sweat fabric. This was a pretty straightforward project, three main pattern pieces and … More Flowery Bloom

I decided to buy that book because for once I found the sample clothes appealing, the patterns in the book wearable and aesthetically pleasing … More Baby Set

Lou and Jim

Three pairs of pants in a couple of hours- not too bad! I tried two different patterns and used leftover fabrics, as well as leftover and new ribbing. The striped pants and the cream pants are La Maison Victor’s Lou Pants (September/October 2017), both in a size 56. But instead of just hemming the legs … More Lou and Jim

Tiger Pyjamas

You will be glad to hear that I finally used up my spotted lilac fabric after a whooping 4 items of kids clothing ( I think I had two metres, the other three finished items are: Quinn, Finn and Liz). I know I’ve been praising La Maison Victor patterns over the past weeks on this … More Tiger Pyjamas
