SEW WITH LOVE…:-)
I’m featured in Tumblr’s Fashion Spotlight List!
I was wondering why my followers started to grow vastly over a night. Then I realized that the ever so wonderful Tumblr.Com has featured my sewing blog on its popular fashion spotlight list! - well, the Turkish version of my blog :)
So, who’s on this list? Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia, Ell Magazine… and ME! :))
Oh, no… My ego is growing on a critical level…
EASIEST WAY TO MAKE A T-SHIRT DRESS
It is very easy to make your own wardrobe with some simple steps! I mean, not everything you sew should be featured in a fashion magazine… If you are a consumer of RTW world, then with average sewing skills, you can easily make a good quality RTW outfit as well!
Moreover, it is quite easy to create different outfits by using simple and basic patterns, like the one I used in this dress. This was created with a basic t-shirt pattern.
Well, you don’t know how to sew a t-shirt either? No problem! You can use one of your t-shirts that you already got bored with.
All you need is half a meter fabric that you’d like to sew onto your t-shirt .
For example, I wanted to make use of a denim fabric leftover which was barely half a meter. In the meantime, I wanted to practice (and hopefully improve) my aplique making skills, so I made this flimsy patch onto my skirt piece. Am I not the designer? I can create whatever I want and call it a new style! :P
All you need to do is to measure the length of your hips, cut that much of fabric and sew it onto your t-shirt hem.
But I must warn you on one thing. If the fabric you’re using is thicker and thus heavier than your jersey, then your dress may get a little longer than you want.
Or maybe more…
Anyhow… let me pull up the dress for now and shorten the jersey top after writing this post. But isn’t it easy and fun?! In half an hour, I turned a boring t-shirt into a chic outfit. Would you like to try it as well? :D
When I started my blog, this pattern was one of the first projects I made, again with a little twist… If you like to check it out visit: Making a Chic Top from a Basic T-shirt Pattern
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?…
Butterflies and pink dreams…
For me, this has been the most romantic summer dress of 2012. It’s so light, so soft, so chic!
The fabric is a light pink chiffon with gorgeous print of butterflies and flowers on it. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it at the fabric store and finished the dress in a day!
Hello there. I want to make a peter pan collar but can’t find a nice pattern. How can I draw it myself?

All you need to do is:
Flamingo Dress is Completed!
I finished my dress! Despite the killing heat, I managed to make a awesome dress out of awesome fabric with flamingo prints :)
The real awesomeness of this dress is that it was quite easy to sew and looks perfect when finished. Although it was a moderately easy pattern, the dress looks really elegant when finished. I mean, as elegant as any dress covered up with flamingos would look :P
Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s my favorite fashion photo of the week…
