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

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

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

Picha Skirt

Another quick and satisfying project: The Picha midi skirt from La Maison Victor (March-April 2017) for my 8-year old. As always, I made size 122/128 but did not add any seam allowance. I ordered the given fabric amount (1.05 metres, so I went for 1 m) from Stoff &Stil, prewashed it, bought a matching zipper, … More Picha Skirt
