I tested the new Sheona pattern by Athina Kakou. It is a relaxed jersey shift dress that has plenty of options and is easy and quick to sew.
I tested the new online course by Make Bra, where you'll learn how to sew a foam-cup bra. Testasin Make Bran uutta verkkokurssia, jossa opetellaan ompelemaan vuoritetut rintaliivit.
The Zara corset is a Victorian style corset, each side of which is constructed out of five pieces. It is used in the Craftsy course by A. Smith that I took.

MakeBra DL01 has a three-part cup which makes it easy to add some pretty lace details to a part of the cup. I modified the pattern for short underwires.
This Bootstrapfashion 4261 ruffle blouse is again part of my Sensible Sewing Challenge.

I made a gorgeous McCall's M7748 dress to wear for my cousin's wedding. This pattern is from the Archive collection and approximately from the year 1957. This dress took me several days to make but I can say that taking the time really pays off with this dress and the final dress fits and looks nice.
