After gathering materials all over the globe and taking Craftsy courses on bra making I have finally finished my first ever bra. I used Pin-up Girls Amanda pattern to make a pink seamless t-shirt bra. I found the whole process of bra making super fun and the finished bra looks…
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.…
I made another pair of Ottobre Marley shorts for my son who seems to have outgrown all his old pairs. This time I added more pockets and bright coloured topstitching.
Making my own bra has been something I have wanted to do for ages. I have done lots of research on where to get lingerie supplies and patterns and here I share what I have found.
I tested the Simplicity 3688 1940s skirt pattern. This was an easy make and I love the outcome. The skirt looks nice when combined with the Sew Over It Pussy Bow Blouse that I have also made.
I was inspired by my daughters spring circus performance theme, "Underwater animals", to create her an unique gold fish circus costume. For once I could let my imagination run wild and this is what I came up with!
I taught myself how to make beautiful plissé fabric at home. It's not an easy process but you don't need any special equipment more complicated than an ordinary domestic steaming iron. What you need is patience but the results can be breathtaking!
I bought the wonderful book, The Secrets of Sewing Lingerie by Katherine Sheers and Laura Stanford and tested the first recommended project, Pretty as a Picnic cotton mini. These knickers out of cotton lawn were very fast to make and fit nicely.
I made a free Pleated Skirt Calculator that creates sewing patterns according to your wishes! I also made a tutorial for those that haven't sewn a garment like this before. Have fun with it!
I, Katja Kuitunen of withmyhandsdream.com and @katja.kuitunen, sign up as a participant in Me-Made-May '18. I endeavour to wear a me-made top and a bottom or a dress everyday for the month of May. I will also try to create two whole outfits (top+bottom) and make one set of underwear…
