Francesca Shirt

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

You know how much I like ruffles, right? Guess what? I made a blouse with ruffles! No surprise here, I know but it is a lovely blouse, nonetheless.

It is a beauty, isn’t it? Look at that ruffle!

I used a lovely linen, and you can read all about it here.

Hope you like it! I certainly do! 🙂

Happy sewing,

New dress for Autumn

Hello,

Hope you are well.

Today I am sharing the first dress I made for Autumn. Well, I confess the colours are not very season adequate however, I am not quite ready to let Summer go…

Nonetheless, it is a beautiful dress, and you can read all about it here.

The fabric is really beautiful, and the pattern details make the fit perfect.

Happy sewing,

Pink dress!

Hello,

Hope you are all well.

In case you did not know, Minerva recently released a new exclusive fabric range and it is beautiful and colourful!

I got the chance to try it and it did not disappoint. You can read all about what I made with it here.

The colours and drape are amazing!

It really is a nice viscose fabric!

How pretty is this neckline detail!

Hope you like it as much as I do. 🙂

Have a lovely week.

Another top for M

Hello,

Hope you are well.

Guess what? I made another top for M!

It is so pretty and we are both quite happy about how it turned out. 🙂

I used a gingham cotton from Minerva and you can read all about it here.

Also, I have used an adult pattern to make clothes for M! It is a bittersweet moment…

The sleeve! I said it was a pretty top!

Hope you like it! We certainly do!

Happy sewing!

A new pink outfit!

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

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,
