I got this lovely black sheer knit mesh fabric via Minerva Blogger Network and I thought it would be perfect for a bra. I had black push-up foam bra cups already waiting in my stash, so I decided to use one of my go-to bra patterns: The Amanda and Alyssa pattern by Pin-up Girls. Disclaimer: I am a Minerva affiliate but my opinions are my own. This mesh fabric came in two colourways, grey and black. I chose the black as it is easier to combine with the black bra cups. The leaf pattern has been created out of thread loops which makes it slightly three-dimensional. It doesn’t fray badly…
I tested the Mönsterfabriken Agnes sewing pattern and sewed a pretty blouse from mustard-coloured Atelier Brunette Moonstone viscose. Here's the review!
I made a turn-of-the-century underwear set consisting of a pretty 1912 corset cover and a Victorian underskirt by the Black Snail Patterns.
Here are some interesting sewing-related products that I have bought recently ranging from fashion sketchbooks to new fabric. Here is what I think of them.
I received free Kultavilla Folk wool-cotton fabric to test and decided to make a bias-cut autumn skirt with the Lorna skirt pattern by Love Sewing magazine.
I made the 1898 walking skirt using the pattern by Truly Victorian. The skirt matches my tailored waistcoat and it features huge pockets!
Recently, I joined Minerva Crafts blogger network. For my first blogger network project I made this 1930s blouse out of yellow chiffon.
Here is how my waistcoat, that is based on a bodice block from 1912, turned out. And a lot of description on the final sewing stages.
I made a ruffled skirt with Ottobre design 1/2011 15. Cocos. I used the same Fabriking bamboo French terry that I used to make a jacket for my son.
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!
