I’m having a kind of day off today: my only me-made, apart from yesterday’s cardigan and my long-sleeved Renfrew, is underwear that I will definitely not show you. I used Indigorchid’s free pattern and sewed a sort of muslin out of an old t-shirt; so it’s rather ugly but very comfortable. See you tomorrow!
It’s cold and rainy today, max 15° C and I’ve caught a cold, so I’m layering garments and pulling handknits out of the wardrobe. And adding somme cuddly time on the sofa with my cat Groquick. He is in a way wearing a me-made: his favorite handknit blanket, which is the Ten Stitch Blanket by […]
So today is Friday and I’m sticking to the theme [Sewing, Knitting, Creating Space]. So I’ll show you a little knitting in my sewing space! My only me-made today is my Just Enough Ruffles Scarf by Laura Chau – an old favorite finished in summer 2011. It’s knit in gorgeous Malabrigo Worsted, as soft as […]
It’s rather sunny today, if warm, so I can run around with bare legs in my Tiramisu knit dress. I’ve made it around Christmas and am still amazed at the way it fits, even though I’ve hidden a basketball underneath 🙂 I’d love to make a red version but still have to find suitable stretch […]
today: a mix of 2 tops from a recent issue of Fait Main magazine (n° 375 – april 2013). I used the gathered sleeves and upper back of tunic C and the front of tunic D. I’ve finished it yesterday, so I don’t know if it’s nice to wear, we’ll see.. I considerably reduced the […]
Today: Made by Rae Washi Dress with no maternity adjustments! Made some time ago (a couple of months I think), I started with a kind of wearable muslin. I had bought this fabric with the idea of making a pyjama set. The drape is perfect for this pattern, but a little dull. The pattern is […]
No garments today, but little accessories that will be needed for the hospital: I made matching slippers for my daughter and me. I know it’s a little twee, but hey, when she’s a teenager, it will be too late for that! It’s my way to say welcome to her 🙂 Both patterns were purchased and […]
bare legs today! Not that it’s that warm, but hey, it’s May! The pattern is modified from Simplicity 2451. I don’t have the enveloppe, it was published in a magazine called Tendances Couture (n° 4 to be precise), certainly one of the ugliest sewing patterns magazines available! If you read any French, go and have […]
today: Summer top by Ottobre (2/2013), my second version – first version is here. I added a little embroidery at the neckline, following instructions in Alabama Chanin’s book Studio + sewing.
today: Sewaholic Renfrew Top, long sleeves version with gathers added at the neckline, blogged here.
