Vogue 8630 – a dress with 10 darts for Frocktober

Hello ladies, here I am again. Long time no see. I have valid reasons for that! I have been super busy making plans for the renovation of our apartment. We have finally agreed on a plan with our architect (and more importantly, a price with our renovator) so we can move forward and apply for the permits. The past few months I have been very … Continue reading Vogue 8630 – a dress with 10 darts for Frocktober

I started a dress – I finished a skirt

Last weekend I started on my next project for The Monthly Stitch, a vintage pattern. I have a 70s pattern for a knit dress that seems very promising on the envelope. I also had this fabric from my latest fabric binge. I thought they would be a perfect match. In my opinion they still are. My sewing skills are just not good enough when it … Continue reading I started a dress – I finished a skirt

Colette Peony – aka Stashbusting Flamingoes

I have had this pattern lying around for 3 months now, along with the fabric I bought especially for this. A gorgeous yellow-pistachio silk jacquard. I love yellow fabrics, there is just something about the bright vibrance that cheers me up instantly (not that I need a lot of cheering up, I am a pretty cheery person by nature). But somehow, the foresight of letting … Continue reading Colette Peony – aka Stashbusting Flamingoes
