I got the English version of Nuppu print company's new book, Nuppuzine, to read and review. The book is about dresses and dreams but what does it mean?
Fabric for Fashion – a book review
I review the two books, Fabric for Fashion - The Complete Guide and Fabric for Fashion - The Swatch Book. These are books that every sewist's who wants to further her fabric knowledge, will love!
Helmi dress with Spoonflower Cotton Poplin Ultra
I was lucky to be sponsored by Spoonflower to test their Cotton Poplin Ultra fabric so that I could share my experiences with you, my dear readers. To test the fabric I made Named clothing Helmi tunic dress.
My new labels from the Dutch Label Shop
The Dutch Label Shop had contacted me a while ago and offered some labels for me to test and I jumped to say "Yes!". This is what I got with the voucher they gave me.
Book review: The Secrets of Sewing Lingerie
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.
