Sewing

Last and first. 

Hi there, 

Just a quick little post to share my last personal sewing project in 2016 and the first in 2017.

Like every year my daughter wanted me to sew her a Christmas dress to wear to her Christmas dinner at school! The three must, Red and Wite, Long and Simple!  

I made a dress with gathered skirt part (cotton fabric with little red roses), added a belt and a fabric flower to pin on the dress but being the girl she is she wanted to wear the flower in her hair. 

I liked the end result and she loved her Christmas dress! 




The first little personal pfoject this year is or are makeup bags from leftover fabric, you know just little stuff between all the other work.



Well thats it for now,up to new projects!

Till next post, happy sewing!

Baby sewing

Hi there,

First I like to wish all a Happy New Year and all the best!! 

I’ve been quite bussy with Christmas and New Year’s sewing that I didn’t get a chance to blog at all, not even time to take pictures of al the garment made!!  But that’s OK I had a great time working and happy customers .

When sewing for customers I always feel the need to get some me sewing in between. just little ptojects that keeps the creativity going!

On 3rd of December  I had a booth at a market to promoot my goodies and sell, I took my little girl with me and while I was selling my goodies (ready to wear clothes) she was selling her handmade earrings. We had a blast!

These are a couple of things Ive made just for fun and to sell.

This top I made for my babygirl with Pangi fabric (cotton),it’s simple and fast to sew and more will follow.

These are some of the baby dresses I’ve made with leftover fabric ​and sold on Dec 3rd​

Thats it for now,thanks for stopping by!

Till next sew!

Flower skirt

Hi there,

Its been a while since my last post,got so caught up with sewing for others, planning birthday party that I just didn’t have time to blog! 

Even now I’m swamped with work so this will be a short one:-)

Our baby girl turned 11 years old three day’s ago and as always mama had to make her something and as always she gets to pick the pattern and fabric. 

This year I made her a flower skirt, I came across a flower skirt on Pinterest from moldesedicasmode.blogspot.com and thought she would like one to dance and twirl around in (these day’s she’s all about dancing and twirling lol)

I drafted the skirt pattern and made a test skirt just to see how it would turn out. 

​It was a bit to short, but she loved it thou! 

I went back to my drawing table and changed the waist band into a hip waist band, this made the flower paddles go down a bit and used the fabric she picked. 

​​


​We both love love how it turned out! 

Well got to go back to work! 

Till next post,  happy sewing

3 Finally finished 

Hi there, 

Finishing these long overdue projects is going way much faster than I thought (dhu there half way done) 

This dress ended up in the box because when I was almost done I decided I didn’t like the fabric or the way it turned out, looked so boring and I couldn’t look past that so I give up! 

But time apart did us good, cause I’ve come to appreciate the fabric, it can be used on both sides and that’s what I did and I shorten the dress to make it more me. 

I’ve used a burda 02 2001 pattern model 108

THIS IS HOW IT LOOKED

Wben I shorten the dress I cut it to short and was not pleased with my self but it turned out to be the best mistake!  I added a piece back to the dress but used the lighter side of the fabric as I did with the top part of the dress, as soon as i did that I loved the dress and knew I was going to wear this!!! 

FINISHED

2 Finally finished 

Hi there, 

I’ve managed to finish an other wayyy overdue project. Back then I couldn’t figure out how to sew the neck line to the dress and gave up way to easy I must say.  This was to be a dress but turned out to be a pajama! 

I’ve used the burda 06 2011 model 102 pattern 

Instead of gathering the top part i made two pleads

 (cause I was lazy :-))

END RESULT

Work in progress 

Hi there, 

Just wanted to share a work in progress with you. 

African print fabric is very popular at the moment and I get the chance to work on the most lovely outfits! 

This one is a skirt and blouse, the fabric is a dream to work with, it’s a new style for me, but so far so good! I hope to get the chance to post the finished outfit! 

I only wish that I could have lined the fabric better to get the print lined to match but I’ve would have wasted to much fabric,  to bad tho! But looking at the first picture I will cut the right pattern peace of the skirt again its wayyy of line! Danged!! I don’t like to waste fabric specifically if its not mine. 

Till next post, happy sewing!

1 Finally finished 

Hi there, 

Sewing for customers is fun but takes up all of your time, that means less time for your own sewing! When you sew for customers you basically sew things they like, some give you the freedom to put you spin on things but most of the time they know what they want and you just have to give them what they want, and that’s ok it’s part of the job right? 

But stil………. 

I miss that just sewing for me or my girl,  you know just for fun, create, change and so on. 

So to still get a bit of fun sewing in between I’ve decided to dive in a box I have sitting in the corner with unfinished projects, some for years even, and try to finish some. Sine it’s all half done it wont take much time. For what ever reason I stopped working on them it was fun finally finishing some, I’m not there yet but it’s a great start. 

This first one is a badwing shirt I didn’t finish because I messed up the front and the back part, you know the V line, back then I didn’t know how to properly sew a V neckline, got frustrated and left it as it was (not wearable). 

There was no way for me to take it apart cause the fabric is way to delicate and left little holes. So I just added lace to the front and back and tadaaa done. 

I like the end result and it will make a great casual wear.
