I sewed the Helmi blouse from the Tauko magazine (no 3). Made out of cotton sateen from Nuppu print company, it makes a nice autumn blouse.
I made an Edwardian-inspired summer dress out of linen using the Sedavi pattern by Pauline Alice. I also added some embroidery.
In order to prevent aches and pains, you need an emboroidery stand. I have two that I use for my projects.
