A High-end watercolor project…
I know, I’m terribly behind my posting schedule :( But I started a new project lately, which requires 150% of my time until February… But I could not keep myself away from the blog any longer and decided to share with you a project I finished right before my hectic work life began.
As seen above, this time it is not the pattern (or our size 0 model’s mind-blowing posing skills) that shine out, but the fabric with amazing watercolor prints on…
So today, I decided to express myself with a painting and I grabbed the watercolor palette of my son and started discovering the artistic side of me…

Peplum Jacket completed! I’m having a huge ego boost moment!
I’ve torn myself apart but finally finished it! Despite the few flaws in the lining, I managed to sew this jacket right :D
My sewing ego just boosted… Who’s gonna stop me now?! Would I be exaggerating a little if I aim New York Fashion Week for next year?…

Collar Me Stylish…
Hello Everyone! I’ve been dying to try styling up my blouses following the new collar craze that I see everywhere. I think it’s a fantastic way to make your boring wardrobe pieces quite hip.
So I wanted to figure out the easiest way to make my own collar pattern that I can easily use on every blouse and I wanted to have a smart casual top for work. Having these two goals in mind, I found an easy to sew pattern from BurdaStyle and started my mission!

New Designer trials / skirt - Rachel Comey
I literally ADORED this skirt pattern! (Vogue / Rachel Comey v1247)
It’s very easy, very comfy, very practical. You can sew it in an hour! :)
I chose this fabric along with my birdy print top , but it turned out to be one of my favorites.
My first trench coat dress - M6279
This pattern was one one my recent purchases in the last sale from McCall’s patterns. It was on my to do list for so long. The pattern is amazing. According to the fabric you use, you can sew it for any season. I think if I cut it a little bigger next time, I can even use it as a real trench coat.
This was my first attempt in sewing a trench coat, thus I had no idea how much fabric is needed for such a pattern.
Instead of buying fabric according to the pattern, as almost all normal people would do, I tend to lose myself in the fabric store and buy whatever I fall in love with at that second and then try to figure out which pattern would be better for that later on. So, after I cutthis pattern, I had no idea about what to do with the existing fabric choices.
