Working on it – Ginger Jeans

Working on it – Ginger Jeans

Hii there! Are there any sewists out here that never had a fear of sewing jeans? Is it just me or are we all a little scared of making pants? I was wondering where that fear may come from. For me it might be caused by my first pants making experience. When I just started sewing I made myself some shorts using a free Pinterest pattern. Back then I did not know how to adjust the fitting or where to find the right resources for help (found out that you can just google ‘pants fitting‘, duh…) so that was not really much of a success… So ever since that day…

Sewingridd and the 7 gowns

Sewingridd and the 7 gowns

From the moment I started sewing my very first T-shirt, the item at the top of my ”to sew” list was an evening dress. Because isn’t it a huge treat to stride in such a beautiful garment?! And when you have made it yourself, it’s even more special and personal. Plus, you will get more bang for your buck because you can also enjoy the sewing process. No wonder my first evening dress soon followed my first seams. At the end of 2014, this purple A-line dress rolled from under the sewing machine. It wasn’t a masterpiece, but still a personal milestone. I had largely drawn the pattern myself, based…

Occasionally I love special events on which you are expected to dress all up. While it’s nothing like what I’m wearing on a daily basis, you can probably agree that it is almost every girls dream to wear a glorious evening gown from time to time! I was blessed to have such an occasion once every year while celebrating the birthday of the students association I was part of. And even though I am no longer a member, this year I was invited to join the party once more. The perfect chance to make myself another evening gown of course, as every sewist would understand! I had some trouble thinking…

Tutorial – How to apply woven ribbon to a stretch garment

Currently there’s a huge trend going on with stripes. You have probably noticed, ‘cause in every shop and every street you see clothes that have those sports stripes, striped elastic, striped ribbons on the sides, or striped cuffs. So when I was thinking of a way to brighten up my simple new summer dress (from last blog), this was the way to go. I decided to attach such a striped ribbon to the side & shoulder seams. The dress itself was namely a little too plain and boring to me. Adding such detail totally turned it into something modern and interesting! When I had bought the ribbon I thought it…

One day dress

One day dress

It was the first beautiful day of the year. I was going out for dinner with some friends that night. While thinking about what I wanted to wear that evening, I came to the conclusion that I did not have a nice and easy to wear short dress! While preparing myself some breakfast, the idea of wearing a summer dress kept racing through my mind… I had the day off, nothing planned, a freshly bought fabric staring at me, and a pattern ready to use! Understand this, I suddenly had to make a dress that day! I used the same pattern as for my third Knipster outfit: the romantic navy…
