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.
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.
This is my B5813 hack with wide v-neckline, button-up closure and lace trim details. On my second use of this pattern I also made changes to the fit.
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.
