Triangle Bloom

Never change a winning …pattern, right? This is my second Bloom jumper. I used a jacquard jersey from Traumbeere which I bought specifically to make this jumper with a few months ago. I used the wrong side of the fabric because the right side (yellow and white triangles) was just to bold a pattern to … More Triangle Bloom

Flowery Bloom

I am more of a cardigan type but I still thought a basic sweater wouldn’t be a bad addition to my wardrobe. 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

Myrtle Dress

My Myrtle is not moaning but saying in a very self content and grown up sort of way: I am quite pleased with how this dress turned out. Nah, who am I kidding, she is screaming out loud: It fits! I love it! I will make more!!!!! I am so in love with this dress … More Myrtle Dress

Second Moss Skirt

After an aldut clothing hiatus due to my baby bump I present you the first post- baby item of clothing: my second Moss Skirt by Grainline Studios. Ironically, I sewed this skirt last summer, way before I was pregnant. After my first Moss needed many changes to fit, I had planned on sewing a second … More Second Moss Skirt

Baby Set

After complaining about the baby sewing books I took out of the library I will now present you baby clothes from the book I actually bought,  Alles Jersey by Lissi Wilbat. 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

Christmas gifts

Although I have started on a T-Shirt which I intend to finish and blog about soon, there wasn’t much time to sew in the last couple of weeks. However, I managed to make some pouches for friends of mine for Christmas in several 20-minute-installments. I was able to cut out all the fabrics in one … More Christmas gifts


I said I was fed up with quilt making- and I really am, but I couldn’t leave my own baby without a quilt of its own, so off I went to work on another one. I thought hard which fabrics to use, rummaged through my stash but couldn’t find something in large enough quantities to … More Triangular

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

Nand Sweater

My La Maison Victor spree continues- I made the Nand Sweater (Issue May/June 2017) for my husband. Instead of the scuba fabric the jumper was designed for I chose a thin summer sweat from Stoff&Stil and it worked beautifully. He was between sizes, but I opted for size S because of his chest measurement being … More Nand Sweater
