I’ve always been fascinated by the 1960s fashion. Although the “poodle skirts” with fitted tops in 50s do look fantastic, I can’t imagine myself going to work or a grocery store with my tutus :)
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!
Making a Chic top from a Simple T-Shirt Pattern
Hello everyone! I’m not just saying that “sew your style and wear a designer” because it sounds nice… It is really very easy (and fun!) to create nice outfits for yourself just by using basic sewing patterns!
Would you like to see an example? Couple of weeks ago I made a very fancy top by using a simple t-shirt pattern. Let me show you how it’s done…
New Designer trials / top - Rachel Comey
When I first laid eyes on this in Vogue Patterns I loved it. I thought it could be a handy top for everyday use. The pattern is again from a famous designer: Rachel Comey.
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.
Making a 1500 EUR dress with 15 EUR! :P
Roland Mouret “Galaxy Dress” - I finally made it!
Let me share with you the dress that is in the top of my “list of honour” since the day I started sewing. It’s the famous “Galaxy Dress” by the famous French designer Roland Mouret.
Well…even at least this post should convince you to sew your own clothes!…
