Linen summer dress with pleats

Just before my holiday I sewed up this Miss Haze top and dress from Sofiona Designs. It is just such a lovely summer dress, flowy, light and with beautiful details. It is not a quick sew but I learned a lot during this test. First I will show you the dress with pleats at the... Continue Reading →

Bikinis for myself

I have been sewing swimwear for a couple of years for our girls already and I have been looking jealously at the swimsuits of our girls. But I never really found a swimsuit that I liked for myself. Until the new patterns of Jalie! The Claudia Bikinis (4136) was added last minute and I liked... Continue Reading →

First swim shorts

With the new collection of Jalie my husband was one of the lucky receivers of his very own swim shorts. The Victor swim shorts (4133) by Jalie are great for swimming but also for casual shorts for the men in your life. The most difficult part of sewing these swim shorts were finding the right...

Sporty Leggings with pockets

My first (two) leggings made me enthusiastic to sew more athletic leggings for myself. The new collection of patterns by Jalie includes Jessica leggings with side pocket (4127).

So a perfect reason to sew another dress for her. I picked out the Wylde top and dress from... Continue Reading →

Colour blocking with the shift tee

Every time I am amazed how Elles from Misusu designs a new pattern that is so out-of-the-box and different from what I have seen so far. This is also the case for the new released shift tee! This shift tee is perfect for colour blocking and using up scraps, which is totally in my alley.... Continue Reading →

Flounce love

Every time I sew something with a flounce for one of our daughters, our eldest asks for one for herself. So I knew this top would be a hit with her. It is the Ylva's dream dress (and top) from Made by Runi. Indeed she is over the moon with the top, although she does... Continue Reading →

Beautiful back dresses: Optimum

I have a weak spot for sewing patterns with a beautiful back. Remember this dress, and the beautiful back of this swim top. For this year I had a few summer dresses on my to sew list with beautiful backs. The first one I sewed was the Optimum Racerback dress from Sofilantjes*. It is such... Continue Reading →
