I designed and sewed a pair of pleated trousers with an easy elasticated paper-bag waist. I used locally woven cotton-linen Kultavilla fabric.
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.
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!
This easy Ikea hack of mine combines the Ikea Råskog cart with the Ikea Jäll ironing board to make a movable small ironing cart with storage space.
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.
Historical sewing and classic tailoring are close relatives. So, I decided to combine a block from 1912 with classic tailoring methods to make a waistcoat.
