Twinning in our brand new Lana Tops

I’m up on the Lana tour today and what great company I’m in!  One of the great things about the Lana pattern from Coffee and Thread is that its available both for us grown ups and the little ladies in our lives.  I’ve already made quite a few Lana’s for both me and my little one.  But I decided to make our first twinning garment for this tour.  Here you go, our twinning debut!

I have a new Komi!

The Komi Jacket from Wardrobe by me just had a make-over and now has more sizes and a new collar option and it can be made using both woven and knits.  How awesome is that!

New pants for me!

 It usually takes me a long time to adapt to new trends, because I get so stuck in what I’m used to.  Being a pattern tester for Wardrobe by me pushes me to evolve and try new styles and I love that!  Now I have been stuck in skinny jeans since about two years after they became popular, haha.  Its time to try to move on and I think the Hepburn Pants just might be the thing!!

My Piper boho

Hi again!  I hope you all had a lovely summer and are settling into the fall rutine with work, school, homework and after school activities aaaand sewing of course!

I had great intensions of sewing new outfits for both my youngest for first day of school this year.  Well, that didn’t happen so the plan now are new outfits for picture day – which is actually coming up pretty soon.  Help!!  There is always another occasion if the first plan doesn’t work out, right?!  And if the second plan doesn’t work out either there is always Christmas, haha!

So my first sewing project after summer holiday was actually for ME!

My pretty Lana!

I love that Olga behind coffee and thread, one of my favourite kids clothes pattern designer is venturing into designing for women as well.  I’m always a little bit nervous trying patterns for myself by a new to me designer, but I have tested for Olga before so I know that her designes are great.

Wardrobe by me…

… using patterns from Wardrobe by me!

Christinas patterns fit me perfectly, they are usually drafted for 172 cm height so I never have to do length adjustments and the curves hit me in all the right places although I have to grade out a little bit for the hips if it’s a fitted garment.  But hey, you can’t have it all on a silver plate now can you?!
