Boom! #rigelbomberjanuary number one, done! More to come, no doubt about it! I’ve so much to say about this first version that I don’t know from where to start. This pattern has been in my “to do” list for ages, but I’ve never got to sew it for a couple of reasons (both pretty stupid).… Continue reading Papercut Rigel Bomber!
Happy Friday everyone! How was your week? Mine pretty busy and hectic and I’m very much looking forward to this week end – my plan is just sewing all the way through Sunday and try completing the last couple of xmas presents I have to finish. This is another one of them – it’s the… Continue reading Fair isle Finlayson
Here I am with my second Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studio. I enjoyed so much sewing my first one that I cut another one straight away. This time I’ve gone for view B, the variation with the sweet gathered skirt. I’ve used a quilting and fashion cotton I bought at the beginning of my sewing… Continue reading Alder The Second!
I’m back! It has been ages since my last post, but since I’m back from my holidays in Italy I’ve been a bit lazy and felt like crap. It has been sad leaving, yet again, my family and country behind and I haven’t been in the mood not even for sewing or knitting… Continue reading The Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studio
Hello from Italy, folks! I’m home and very happy to be here!!! This is part #2 of the Outfit Along 2014 organized by Lauren and Andy. I knit this cardigan to go with the last dress I made, the Floralex. As you may imagine, I’ve used CY Traveller. A very sad note: Cephalopod Yarns is… Continue reading My Pink Sheep!
I simply couldn’t resist to make myself a Flora Skirt! The lines of Flora are very feminine and elegant so making this skirt was a “must do”. I’ve to say that the amazing version of Closet Case Files convinced me even more, her skirt is gorgeous and I wish I had such a great fabric on hand!… Continue reading Herringbone Flora
Let me be honest: this Flora gal drove me crazy, but finally I managed to tame her! I did four – yes I said four! – muslins for the bodice, trying to fix darts and extra fabric under my bust and after all the work, my dress is done! I’m sure that if I had… Continue reading Floral Flora!
Here she is! I’ve finished my Georgia Dress and I love her! Do you know why!? Because it is a knockout of a dress! After making a muslin for the bodice only, I cut a size 6 at the bust slimming down to a 4 for the waist and hips. The bodice went together pretty… Continue reading Hello Georgia!
The last couple of weeks have been pretty busy and I’ve started (but not finished yet!) few different projects. I’ve three things on the needles and I can’t wait to get them done to show you. I’m very excited about them!! But today I want to talk about my Georgia Dress instead! The Georgia Dress… Continue reading Georgia Dress – The Bodice
Tomorrow is the day – By Hand London Georgia Dress Sewalong is going to start! First thing I’ve to do is to decide which fabric to use. The girls recommend ‘medium weight fabrics with a little bit of stretch’, so I searched for those in my stash and I came up with three options. The… Continue reading The Georgia Dress – fabric choice
