A Draper Polo for my man.

Well, hello again and Happy New Year!

It’s about time to get back into the game after a total radio silence since the end of November.  I was feeling a bit burnt out after all the craziness in November and Desember so I needed a break from obligations and deadlines.  I’ll start the new sewing year with a polo shirt for my hubby, not to shabby I think.

You can imagine my excitement when my 18 year old agreed that I could sew him something and post it on the blog!!  So let me introduce you to my very handsome young man!

Janis – same but different!

So I’m changing things up a bit today, another model and another color scheme!  I think Anita was glad to get some time off from the modelling, just wish I had her carefree spirit.  She will be back here soon enough though.

So this is me (in case you forgot) and my fancy Janis in rayon challis from Imagine Gnats!  Janis is a brand new pattern from Wardrobe by me.

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.

My Blixen!

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!

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!
