I made an Edwardian waistcoat to match my newest walking skirt. A quick little side project, you might think! No, a lot of tailoring was involved!
I made a walking skirt using a free 1902 pattern from Finnish Käsitöitä magazine. Ompelin pitkän hameen vuoden 1902 Käsitöitä-lehden kaavalla.
This time I made an Edwardian inspired lace blouse which gave me an opportunity to learn how to make invisible seams in lace.
I made Sewaholic Nicola dress out of pretty crepe fabric. I have had this pattern for ages but only now got this dress done.
I made my daughter the cute fox pinafore dress from Burda 8/2018 130. I used orange baby cord, applique and embroidery to create the foxy details.
I made this blue DL04 bra at the Ompelino Christmas party where I gave a bra-making demonstration. Once more the material choises affected the design.
I made S another Ottobre design 4/2012 Black Denim dress as the old one is now too small. I rarely go back to sewing patterns but this one was too good!
I made an Edwardian inspired Gibson Girl blouse using the pattern by Folkwear. It is full of pretty details, such as insertion lace and pintucks.
I made a petrol blue Kielo dress with long sleeves and knee length for a family friend who is recovering from an illness and who I wanted to cheer up.
I decided to combine Edwardian pattern drafting with modern fabric and made a cute shirtwaist blouse that goes with both jeans and skirts.
