I’m joining The Nina Blouse Tour today.
There are some awesome seamstresses on this tour and each creation is so delicate and beautiful! We have Olga, the super talented designer behind Coffee + Thread, to thank for this great pattern.
Hope you guys are ready for more cute dresses! I know Anita is always ready for a new dress so you just better be as well.
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!
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.
Remember the dress I was wearing under my Blixen Blazer? Well, I’m finally bringing it to the blog. I made it around Christmas time, took photos in January than forgot to bring it here.
I have a goody to share with you today!
As you know by now I’m a regular tester for Wardrobe by me and Christina keeps giving me new challenges and I’m always learning something new which I think is totally awesome! I’ve made long and short pants, two coats, a bikini, a bomber jacket and a number of tops and dresses and now I’ll show you my newest make.
Let me introduce you to The Blixen Blazer!
This pattern is so great and I love my blazer so much! The blazer is fully lined so the inside is just as pretty as the outside. I didn’t find lining fabric with stretch for knit fabrics so I used regular polyester with no stretch. It looks pretty but I miss the stretch function, so now I’ve ordered the right kind and I’m going to replace my lining even though it means using the dreaded seam ripper. I just need this blazer to be PERFECT!Continue reading “My Blixen!”
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!
