Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

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!

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

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 […]

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

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 […]

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

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 […]
