As promised yesterday I have another Ania for you guys today. In case you didn’t see my post yesterday I was one of the testers for the latest pattern from coffee + thread and here is the second one I made during testing.
I got to be in on the testing process and it was awesome. I don’t know where my luck is coming from these days but I hope it stays!
I made three Ania Tunics during testing, here is the first one.
Anita has declared that she needs new summer dresses and she has grown so much this winter that I totally agree with her. She has also been going through my fabric stash and claiming what she wants, which is pretty much everything that has flowers on it or a hint of pink or purple. So I better get this party started!
Like that’s not enough she also wants a long dress. I’ve been on the fence about that cause I’m not a huge fan of maxi dresses on little girls. Then Shwin Designs launched the London Dress so I thought one maxi length dress wouldn’t hurt.
… and she is VERY HAPPY! Continue reading “My little lady in her London Dress”
This is one of my projects I absolutely LOVE!
For the most part Anita only wants to wear dresses. Since you usually find her climbing trees or jumping around somewhere, not in an elegant princess style but more like 10 elephants have invaded your house kind off style, knit dresses are to be preferred. So as soon as the Groove Dress from Madeit Patterns came out I snatched it up!
One day I came home from work and found a pile of fabric on my doorsteps. I suspect it’s from one of my very good neighbors (Lena?) but I always forget to ask, anyway thank you from the bottom of my heart! It definitely made my day – I mean come on what sewing nerd doesn’t like the sight of a big pile of fabric! Whoop Whoop!!
I knew right away that some of it would become a new pair of Twisted Trousers for Viktor.
Alright, since it’s almost summer I guess it’s fitting that I share my new wool coat with faux fur collar. On a side note, first day of summer is actually a national holiday in Iceland and was on April 21. So at least it would be fitting if I was planning on spending my summer in Iceland because you never no what kind of weather you’ll be getting and need to be prepared for it all. But I’m not, so maybe we could all just pretend that I am extremely great at planning ahead and that I now have a new coat all ready for fall! But my friends and family know that’s just one big lie. So I guess my reason is that I have had this wool fabric for some time now and then the Nina Coat pattern from Shwin Designs came along and I saw a match and wanted to give it try.
