Tiger Onesie

Don’t be afraid, this blog won’t turn into a mommy blog, but until my body keeps its shape again for a reasonable strech of time, I will keep sewing for others (read: the baby).   I am still short on baby clothes in the smallest sizes, so I made this onesie in a 56. The … More Tiger Onesie

Sleeping Bag

Since sewing for my self is becoming more and more pointless with the progressing pregnancy (I made enough jersey tops) I delved into sewing for others. So I made a sleeping bag for the baby. I followed this Patty Doo tutorial and free pattern (newborn size). Don’t let yourself be put off by the very … More Sleeping Bag

Odette Shirt

Having a look at my last couple of projects, I cannot go on saying I don’t usually sew with knit fabrics. I discovered this rayon jersey at my local fabric shop for just 2 Euros a metre, so I bought it, thinking I could make another Bronte Top. However, pregnancy sort of ruled that one … More Odette Shirt

Finn Cardigan

This baby cardigan from La Maison Victor turned out a big success. I went for size 62, and as recommended, a sweat fabric for the outside and a jersey lining (leftovers from this dress). With La Maison Victor, I really appreciate them giving size specific fabric amounts ( especially paired with Stoff and Stil where … More Finn Cardigan

Liz Dress

I made this dress for a 7-year-old to wear at a wedding. It’s the Liz Dress from La Maison Victor Mai/June 2016. The back issue wasn’t available in German anymore, so I ordered the French version of the magazine, which worked out alright (lots of pictures to help). Other than with the Mitch Jumper, I … More Liz Dress

Second Zinnia

  Zinnia skirt, the second (here’s the first). This time I didn’t change anything, so I kept the seam allowances as written, and the fit is spot on. Funnily enough, although this fabric is  also a rayon linen mixture, just as the first, it behaves quite differently. Firstly, it is much more prone to creasing. … More Second Zinnia

Another baby quilt

Since there is no end to the flood of newborns I made another baby quilt by using all the leftover  12 cm squares I had from my previous 4 quilts and some additional scraps. This time I chose a different approach than before (here or here ) and used bias tape to bind the quilt … More Another baby quilt

Mitch Sweater

Did it take me days to finish? Was the first fitting frustrating because of all the modifications the jumper needed to fit? Did it come out ok but won’t get much wear? Was the material and pattern expensive? NO! I finished this jumper before breakfast (mind you I had my paper pattern pieces ready the … More Mitch Sweater

Zinnia Skirt

Meet my Colette Zinnia Skirt! This was my first version and I didn’t do a muslin but it fits! I bought the fabric on Ebay, its a rayon linen mix, the weave is quite open, it is drapey but with a nice stand. Due to the fabric’s loose weave I had to line it. My … More Zinnia Skirt
