Lace weddingparty dress

Lace weddingparty dress

For a special occasion every now and then, I like to dress up. So when I was invited to the wedding of my dear German friends, my brain already started rattling. Of course, I could pick one of the beautiful dresses from my assortment, like this or this one… But soon I remembered the fabric I bought at Stoffenspektakel Den Bosch during the Knipster finals in 2017. I scored a gorgeous glitter lace and matching under layer. I think the lace is from Driessen Stoffen, and the terlenka from Budgetstoffen. If I would be attending a wedding again, I thought, I would make a dress out of it. The pattern…

Happy Sew Year! – 2018 recap

Happy Sew Year! – 2018 recap

It’s the end of the year! (Obviously, haha) That can only mean one thing: time for lists and looking back. 2018 was the year for me to start a blog. Although I’m not always posting regularly, and not solely post on my own blog, I do really enjoy it. I hope you do too! Because I love overviews I’ve made a list of the items I’ve created this year. To also be able to draw a lesson here, I tried to list the top 5 items I’ve worn most. Hoping this will help me to be able to decide on forehand what I’ll make and eventually actually wear! Happy new…

Jungleprint Batwing Tee

Jungleprint Batwing Tee

Is it just me, or are your fabric stashes also growing so big that you cannot clearly oversee it all? For that reason I was organizing my fabric stash a while ago, when I bumped into this jungle print tricot. I had bought the fabric recently at www.stoffenbestellen.nl. My expectation was it to be black/white or brown, but in reality it appeared to be more greenish. That’s why I did not really know what to do with it, until seeing it next to this army green fabric while cleaning. This solid tricot I actually bought to make a T-shirt for my boyfriend, but now I first used it for something…

Tula dress tunic

Tula dress tunic

Today’s blog features a super freshly updated pattern! Although the weather is significantly colder already than in summer time, I made something sleeveless. It’s the Tula dress pattern by Laela Jeyne Patterns which was re-released this week. Huh, but your creation is somewhat short to be called a dress, right!? That’s true, because I made the tunic version. One of the things that’s nice about this pattern is that it looks like a nice and simple sleeveless A-line dress or tunic, but you have plenty of style options! And by plenty, I mean plenty… You can tweak this basic pattern completely to your likings. There’s a dress or tunic length;…

Catalina – A Summery Maxi Dress

Catalina – A Summery Maxi Dress

Read all the way down this blog to find out how you can win this pattern! In summertime we need dresses right?! Dresses that suit several different occasions all at the same time. Well, recently I came to the conclusion that for myself I particularly like the kind of dresses that are flowy, fun and flattering but not too sexy or revealing, just feminine. I’m getting older I guess…;) In my daily life I don’t often wear dresses, since they are not practical on my job (need to cover my legs in the laboratory). For me to wear a dress on the few occasions I can, a dress should check…

Cosette Blouse – La Femme blog tour

Cosette Blouse – La Femme blog tour

There may be hiding a coupon code at the end of this blog… A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege to test another pattern! This time it was a pattern for a blouse by Laela Jeyne Patterns. Once again I jumped right in because that is what I love. It’s actually one of my main flaws: I want to do it all! That’s why my agenda is always over flowing and I barely have time for my full time job, haha :p At least this time it delivered me another great garment to add to my wardrobe: the Cosette Blouse! The Cosette Blouse is a brand new pattern…

Why I need more Skye joggers

Why I need more Skye joggers

You have probably seen the blog about my first pair of Skye joggers. Those were a huge victory for me, because they were my first well-fitting handmade trousers and so they slightly eased my fear of pants! Well, I don’t often use sewing patterns more than once (although I tend to more and more lately), but recently I’ve made myself another pair of Skye joggers. Of course, partly because I really liked my first pair. But most importantly, because that pair went missing! In February I went on a city trip to Prague with my former students association. Although it was super super cold, I really had a great time….
