A new pink outfit!

Hello,

Hope you are well.

Before starting with truly Summer makes I was glad to be able to make one more outfit that is perfect for Spring.

I used a beautiful corduroy to make an outfit. Trousers and a waistcoat.

You can read all about this outfit here and I hope you like it as much as I do.

Isn’t the fabric colour beautiful?

Have a lovely week. 🙂

Happy sewing!

New Skirt to welcome Spring!

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

It has been such a long time! I haven’t been sewing much lately and have been sharing even less. The world seems to be upside down and I find it hard to focus, to be honest.

I have another make to share with you but today I want to share the new skirt I made as part of Minerva’s challenge #SewnWithMcCalls.

You can read all about it here and I do hope you like it.

It really is a lovely pattern and the fabric is so pretty!

The pleats make the skirt drape so beautifully!

Hopefully, I will soon be sharing more projects with you. 🙂

Have a lovely rest of the week,

The Liberty Alexa Frill Dress Kit

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

The year is almost over and sewing wise, 2021 was a nice one. I made some garments that I have really loved and I challenged myself to make trousers!

One thing I have also used for the first time was a sewing kit.

Both the pattern and fabric are lovely!

I had the opportunity to try the Liberty Alexa Frill Dress Kit and you can read all about it here and here.

Hope you like it! 🙂

Thank you so much for following my sewing adventures this year!

New Winter Dress

Hello,

Hope you are all well and having a good start of December.

I have been wanting to make a dress suitable for the colder months for a while and I finally did it.

Again, I have used the McCalls 7973 however, this time in a different style.

This time I used a Viscose and adore the drape and how fluid it is.

The necktie is such a pretty detail!

You can read all about it here.

Hope you like it. 🙂

Have a lovely December!

A new Summer Dress!

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

Here we are in September already! I am still holding on to these last Summer days… Today I have a new Summer dress to share with you and although the weather already looks a bit like Autumn, I still have a couple of Summer projects that I am working on.

About the dress I will be sharing today… it might be the perfect Summer dress, in my opinion of course. 🙂 But if you know me, you will know how much I like broderie anglaise.

I like everything about this dress. From the fabric to the lovely details!

You can read all about this dress here.

Hope you like it as much as I do 🙂

Happy sewing,

All about the sleeves

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

This last days the weather has been wonderful and of course, there was a need to make a new dress. Any excuse is good, really…

I made a lovely dress using a gorgeous Liberty linen / cotton. The pattern is the Anthea dress by Anna Allen and I don’t think I have to tell you how much I like those sleeves!

You can read all about this pretty dress at Minerva 🙂

I told you the sleeves were pretty! Also, how lovely is this print!

Hope you like the dress 🙂

Have a wonderful week!

Paulette Blouse

Hello hope you are all well.

The last couple of months I have been quite busy but not so much with sewing. I have so many ideas I want to bring to life but just haven’t been able to.

Nonetheless, I have a recently made blouse to share with you. I used a Robert Kaufman Rayon Challis from Minerva to make the Fibre Mood Paulette blouse and what can I say? It has ruffles and I quite like it!

You can read all about it here.

Did I mention it has ruffles?

Hope you like it!

Happy sewing,

Magnolia Dress

Hello,

Hope you are well.

Spring seems to just around the corner and although the weather is a bit grey at the moment it was wonderful to have a sunny weekend and enjoy long walks a bit less muddy.

Today I am sharing a new dress I made using the Magnolia Dress pattern from Deer and Doe and a lovely fabric from Minerva.

I do adore this pattern, this is my second version and most likely, not the last one.

You can read all abut it here.

Hope you like it.

Thank you for reading,
