The Ottobre design magazine 4/2018 19. Space adventurer was a good basic t-shirt pattern for my son. I also had enough fabric to make a matching hat.
As part of my Sensible Sewing Challenge I made a stripy Lago tank top using the free pattern by Itch to Stitch. Here is my review of the pattern!
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.
In the picture above is my new nephew who was born in June! As her only auntie, I was very keen on sewing something cute for him.
I knew that Kielo is a very popular pattern but would it work for me? I decided to find out! I bought the pattern and then went around the booths until I found a nice organic jersey for it at Nuppu print company with a beautiful print designed by Satu Kontinen.
Some time ago S found a necklace at a local flea market and bought it. She showed me the picture of a brown haired girl on the pendant and she wanted a similar dress that was on the girl. I thought this gave me a perfect opportunity to practice my skills and make a shirred dress. This mustard yellow jersey knit has been in my stash for quite some time and the colour matched exactly. I, however, wanted something practical that S could wear over the summer. As I had learned how to shirr early this spring I decided to make a shirred dress with tied straps and a frilly hem.…
I made the Hey June Aurora top using black and white patterned jersey. I had to modify the pattern slightly due to lack of enough fabric but the result is a great top that I have been wearing almost constantly after finishing it.
I designed this sports outfit for my 7-year-old daughter who is into circus and break dancing. My daughter chose the pink fabric with the flame pattern and I added some black jersey to make the outfit less restless. I am super happy with this unique outfit that I drafted from the scratch!
Somebody pointed out the Winter Street Dress pattern for me when I was compiling my list of pattern companies. I was vaguely aware of the fact that PatternReview.com had some exclusive patterns but I had never tried any of them. This dress was something I have been looking for a while. I had this black jersey crepe fabric that would make a great little black dress. (I don’t know any other name for this fabric. It looks like a crepe from the outside, but jersey from the inside and it is very stretchy and comfortable.) I thought this would be a quick project but I stumbled into many fitting issues.…
I think that this red Moneta dress is one of my most favourite makes for this year! I am wearing it right now and it is super comfortable but still cute and the colour brightens my day.
