The Akinori has been on my to do list forever. After seeing so many gorgeous ones in my FB and Insta feed earlier this summer I knew it had to be my first sew after our summer holiday. Finally I have my very own Akinori!
It does look like wrap dresses are the thing these days. Usually I’m about a year or two behind on what’s in, but I actually have sewn a few both true and faux wrap dresses both in jersey and woven. I’ll put links to my previous posts at the bottom, but this post is all about the brand new Ava Wrap dress from Wardrobe by me.
Right before I threw my back out a couple of weeks ago I managed to test the new Linea A-line skirt from Wardrobe by me. My back is getting better but I must start taking better care of myself and work in some exercising time in between work and sewing. I hope that with brighter and longer days I’ll manage to keep up the motivation. But enough on that boring stuff, here is Linea!
Can’t belief its February already, oh and Happy New Year to all of you!
I have been busy sewing the past weeks and now its time to start showing off what I’ve been doing. First in line is my lovely Grace the newest pattern from one of my favourite designers Wardrobe by 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!!
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!
Anna is my mother in law and our niece – and now the latest garment I sewed for me! Soon my daughter and I will only have clothes named after the people we love, haha!
… 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?!
