Such a nice fabric! Not that easy to work with, though. I made a dress with cowl neckline and all-in-one-sleeves.

The easiest blouse pattern I could think of! (with video)

Ok, the pattern "Poppy" is not exactly new. I developed it a few years ago - although I was never really happy with the fit back then. So I sat down and completely revised the pattern.

The new "Poppy" also has a version that takes into account the extra length across the bust - the fullness of the "bust dart" is moved to the front sleeve so you don't actually have to sew a dart.

It is rare that I like a printed fabric, but this was love at first sight. :D

I made the fabric into a dress with a half circle skirt and a Peter Pan collar. More details in the video.

The buttons took some time, but it was totally worth it!

The dress is so swooshy, I can't stop twirkling. :D

Wide leggend linnen pants - with video

I'm not the pants type anymore, you see me more in skirts and dresses. But a pair of nice wide linen pants are definitely great for the transitional period when it is still a bit chilly in the morning but is already getting warm during the day.

The pattern is from the pants kit. The zipper is in the back, I've never seen it in retail clothing, but it works great. You have a nice long relatively straight edge where you can insert the zipper. You can also set the zipper in the side seam or in the front, if you prefer that.

Spring is coming and that means it's time for transitional clothes that can be layer well. This blouse is made of a wonderful red wool fabric and I once again filmed how I sewed the whole thing.

Princessline pinafore - with video

This is a sewing pattern I've wanted to tackle for a long time. I've already sewn a few jackets and dresses with continuous dividing seams, but I still had to code this into my program.

I love the so-called Princessline patterns. Instead of sometimes hard darts, soft transitions are sewn and everything is somehow flowing and harmonious.

The blanket dress

The blanket dress

I call this my blanket dress. It is made from a thicker, dark-gray wool and so long an cuddly like a blanket!

Yes, I am one of these, I am always cold. :D

I might have chosen a higher fitting class, so that there is more ease. The bodice is a bit tight when I layer a sweater underneath. But you can change that if you want to sew one of these, too. ;)

I have lined the bodice, but the pattern includes facings for neck and armholes, too.

How about a hoodie jacket in these freezing temperatures?

This one is made from black cotton french terry and has of course pockets! You can get the pattern in the T-Shirt/Sweater pattern kit.
