Here are som shirts and blouses that I sew during Christmas holidays. I guess I was longing for spring already then.
I purchased a New Look pattern (model 6089) and selected the pattern pieces according to a mix of two of the four views included and started of by cutting out layouts in size 4 (for a four year old girl). Firstly the bodice sections are stitched together at shoulder seams. The collar consists of four… Continue reading 16. Girl Spring dress
The August issue of Burda Style includes a pattern of a redecorated 60's dress; 111 08/2017111 08/2017. I thought it was very interesting and once again I chose to buy and cut out one of their patterns. The shape of this figure slimming and extending dress is created by nicely spaced dividing stitches and inserts. The… Continue reading 15. Work dress
I decided to show you some of my earlier works (fall/winter) so I looked for and found some old pics. Some of the garments are the first ones made at the very beginning when I just started learning how to sew.

I wanted to use this interesting pattern, found in Burda Style 9/2014, for a very long time but I hadn't managed to find a suiting fabric until now. I chose to use a lime colored wool (20 % cashmere) and I'm quite content with the way it turned out. I could easily be wearing this… Continue reading 13. Winter dress

I was given some very nice fabrics from a relative in Serbia (HVALA! ❤ ) and I immediately thought of making a jumpsuit (more look of an overall) out of one of them. So why not jump right into the work(?)! This one, is more closed in view of the long sleeves and longer pants.… Continue reading 11. Jumpsuit – my third (Pre Fall-17)
I just finished sewing a black and white polka dot baby dress with puff sleeves à la Minnie Mouse in size 86.
The last piece I sew during this summer vacation is a girl dress. This dress is made out of dotty viscose and lined with the thinnest possible cotton voile. The size should be somewhere in between 80 and 86 (I don't really know since I made the pattern completely from scratch and I'm not used… Continue reading 9. The last summer piece
I found this pattern in Burda Style 07/2017 and wondered for a while whether or not I should use it. Sometimes the upper part gets too open and/or tight for me (no matter chosen size), which I don't find flattering at all. But when I came to think of this red fabric I decided to… Continue reading 8.
