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 love Victorian fashion and this time I collaborated with Minerva Crafts and made this M2045 Victorian blouse with puffed sleeves and pintucks.
After I saw Emily Blunt wearing the beautiful dotty blouse in the film Mary Poppins returns I decided to make myself one with B6563 pattern by Gertie.
I made two bikinis: one for myself using pattern from Suuri Käsityö 6/2018 and one for my daughter using Ottobre design 3/2018.
I made a 70s inspired dress out of Flowerpower denimlook sweatshirting that I was gifted by Zicca fabrics. Ruffles, denim and flowers work well together!
I made my husband a tee-shirt from the book Sy! Urban collection by Jenny Hellström. The Mereen "Usva" cotton jersey was perfect for this make.
It was time for me to practice my pattern drafting skills and I decided to make a vintage-inspired fit-and-flare dress out of rusty orange ramie fabric.
