I practiced my trouser-fitting skills and made the Sara chinos by Mönsterfabriken using cotton chambray fabric. Who doesn't love trousers with big pockets!
I made a legform to fit my body shape. I used duct tape as a mould and filled the leg form with PU foam that is easy to acquire and makes a pinnable form.
I love Victorian fashion and this time I collaborated with Minerva Crafts and made this M2045 Victorian blouse with puffed sleeves and pintucks.
After I saw Emily Blunt wearing the beautiful dotty blouse in the film Mary Poppins returns I decided to make myself one with B6563 pattern by Gertie.
I made two bikinis: one for myself using pattern from Suuri Käsityö 6/2018 and one for my daughter using Ottobre design 3/2018.
I made a 70s inspired dress out of Flowerpower denimlook sweatshirting that I was gifted by Zicca fabrics. Ruffles, denim and flowers work well together!
I made my husband a tee-shirt from the book Sy! Urban collection by Jenny Hellström. The Mereen "Usva" cotton jersey was perfect for this make.
I made a pair of cute leather sandals. This is a shoemaking project that doesn't require lasts, patterns or any expensive equipment, so read on!
It was time for me to practice my pattern drafting skills and I decided to make a vintage-inspired fit-and-flare dress out of rusty orange ramie fabric.
I needed a nude tee-shirt bra to wear under my light-coloured summer tops so I made myself one using Pin-up Girls Amanda/Alyssa pattern.
