Sweet sweet Vienna!

Wait what?  Back already?  And I’ll even be back again very soon!

I’ve gotten myself in a bit of a deadline pickle, but I’ll do my very best to meet them all cause I’m not about to let anybody down!

I don’t know what it is but Belgians seem to have some kind of sewing superpower, must be something in the water over there.  They also seem to have access to the prettiest fabrics available, the kind the rest of us can only dream of.  So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to join in on an Instagram tour featuring The Vienna pattern by two Belgian designers @beletoile and @kaatjenaaisels

Oxford dress is perfect for school!

Anita has had such a growth spurt this summer that almost all her knit dresses are now too small.  So what’s a sewing mom to do?  I think you can guess the answer, wink-wink!

The Cosmo Dress

I saw a call for sewers to participate in a blog tour featuring The Cosmo Dress from Sewpony and all it took to apply was to comment on the Facebook post.  I never in million years thought I would get to join in on the fun so I wasn’t even paying attention to my messenger and it took me a day or two to see the message that I was in.  I panicked and was afraid I had missed my chance, but luckily all was good and here I am! I have to admit that I have a bit of a stage fright being in the company of such great bloggers!  The same is not to be said about my daughter as you will see later on in this post.  Stick around (or at least scroll down) to the end for a discount code.

One more Lilah!

So I had decided that I was done with the princesses summer wardrobe then I just couldn’t resist any longer and made her a new Lilah dress and this time in knit, finally!  I’m sure she will forgive me for keep making her cute dresses, wink wink.

Hera

Maybe you remember that a few weeks ago I posted a couple of summer tops I tested for Wardrobe by me, The Summer Breeze and The Summer Tulip.  Guess what, there is a third sister and her name is Hera.  But hold on it gets even better, YOU can get her for free!  That’s right $0.00!  All you have to do is sign up for the newsletter. 

Hera is a peplum top designed for light weight woven fabric.  Well, you know how rules are meant to be broken?  That’s what a few of us testers have been up to lately.

The Lilah dress

Have you heard about Sansahash yet?  It’s a new children’s pdf pattern company.  I have been following her on Instagram for a long time and have always admired the clothes she makes for her daughter so I’m sure we will see lots of awesome patterns from them in the future.  Their second pattern was just release and I got to be in on the testing process.  Say hello to The Lilah Dress!

More love for Asta

You might remember my The Asta Dresses I shared a few weeks ago.  I use my casual one all the time and now I’ve made two more or at least one more dress and one a little bit modified.  These are more aimed at the spring/sommer season.  I know I’m dreaming ahead but now with the days getting longer I just want more!

I love Asta!

Asta is my sister in law, she is one of my most favourite persons in the world. She is so funny, loving, always ready to help out, she loves to fool around with the kids and so much more.  It’s just a shame that we live so far apart that we can’t be together as much as we would like.

That is why it’s so fitting that my new favourite dress is also called Asta!
