Junebug dress as a nightie

Junebug dress pattern is a pattern for a dress and not a nightie. However, the colouring, the fabric choice and the vintage look makes it look more of a nightie to me…

Navy Elise blouse

I figured out that the Elise blouse pattern by Rosie and me deserved a second chance. In the first blouse the neckline was too revealing, so this time I needed to change that. Fortunately, lovely Esther at Rosie and me made a tutorial on how to do just that…

Suuri Käsityö 5/2018 Mekkohaalari – Dress romper

Harvoin käsityölehteä lukiessa tulee niin inspiroitunut olo, että kaava on piirrettävä ja ommeltava heti.

Liikunnalliselle nuorelle neidille mekko-shortsihaalariyhdistelmä on yliveto…

1940s tea dress by Sew Over It

I got this fabric from Artenio at the same time with the mustard yellow one for this Amelia dress. It took me quite some time to decide on the pattern. I did not have a lot of fabric so many dresses with their circle skirts were unfortunately out of question…
