It’s been a while
Lately I haven’t been able to sew a lot except for a prom dress that wasn’t for me unfortunately. But today I finally managed to make some time for a quick dirndl skirt.
Nothing much to explain, really. It has a simple button and zip closure on the side, it’s made out of two rectangles and the hem measures 158” in length.
Hope you like it
(Sorry for the messy room and the low quality of the pics. I live under the roof and the temperatures were already somewhere in the 90°F’s so I didn’t want to open the curtains and windows to let the heat/sun in )
So far so good.
I fell in love with the print when I saw it in the fabric store. Sadly there were only about 3yards left so I couldn’t make much out of it.
Hello you lovely people!
I recently re-discovered one of my long forgotten dresses in my wardrobe.
I’m pretty sure I’ve sewn this last year in summer but never got around to wear it :/
The dress is made with a cotton blend and fully lined, pattern was made by me and you can button on the straps in the back. The zip is one sided and in the back.
I really hope you like it
Have a lovely rest of the week!
I’m on holiday for the rest of the week so I hope I will be able to squeeze in some serious sewing work
Since I don’t have to work on easter holiday (retail, derp…) I finally had some time to reduce this gigantic pile of fabric under my bed.
So I made a skirt!
It is inspired by Tara Starlet and is made out of linen. And that is the one and only reason I didn’t iron the skirt. It would’ve been all wrinkly once I’d put it on anyway…meh :/
It is lined and I used french seams and bias tape. The button closure isn’t provided in the original pattern, so I added it on my own. The pattern is from McCall, but I can’t remember the number. I will edit the post once I find out. It is definitely a modern pattern.
I don’t have anyone to take a picture of me, so I had to build my own tripod out of my ironing board and a few books, so excuse the angle and the quality, please!
And some details:
That’s it I hope you like it!
Long time, no see
In the past few weeks I’ve been incredibly busy with school but I managed to take a break from learning and squeezed this cute capripants in my schedule. The pattern I used is Gertie’s Butterick 5895 which doesn’t seem to be very popular. That I don’t really understand because the pattern is amazing! It leaves so many options to adjust the trousers to your liking.
For example, I made heart shaped pockets for the back and sewed a one-sided zip (I hope that’s what you call it in English :/ ) in the back. The waistband is a tad bit wider than the pattern suggests but that is okay (only about 1/2”) and in the end I wish I had made beltloops…well, next time!
I will make one more adjustments at the hems. I plan on tightening them around the knee area and sew slits on each side, so they’re more summery.
The top is Butterick 4685 which I shortened to waist-lenght.
Shirt: Cottonblend (used for blouses)
(whoops forgot to take out some basting stitches ;P )
