Lime Shorts

I never made woven pants before and I’ve been eyeing the Deer&Doe Chataigne Shorts for ages. So I made a practise pair of children’s shorts to get an idea of the construction process. I originally wanted to make the ankle length version (both patterns are from Ottobre kids 3/2018) but my kiddo wanted shorts. So … More Lime Shorts

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

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

Quinn T-Shirt

Hooray for small pattern pieces, working with fabric leftovers and pregnancy compatible quick sewing (few seams and no fitting issues). I made a T-Shirt (Quinn from La Maison Victor 3, May-June 2017) for my stepdaugther out of leftovers from this dress and baby cardigan (mind you, I still have fabric left although I ordered the … More Quinn T-Shirt

Winter Baby Bonnet

This is just a very quick post. I made the Purl Soho Winter Baby Bonnet out of leftovers from this wrap front cardigan. I used a sweat for the outside, a jersey for the lining and cotton leftovers for the ties. I altered the pattern and omitted the “mini-scarf-ties”, because I wanted a more classic … More Winter Baby Bonnet

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

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
