Another swim pattern: Hurricane

The second swimsuit that I sewed is the Hurricane add-on swimsuit from Boo and Lu Patterns*. You must have seen all the different Boo and Lu dresses with beautiful backs. The Hurricane add-on is the swim add-on to turn the Pepper, Tigerlily, Snapdragon or Sandpiper into a swimsuit. You need to buy/have one of the... Continue Reading →

First swimsuit of the year: Coral

I love sewing swimsuits. The fit is always so much better for self sewed swimwear than store bought swimwear. Especially the coverage on the back is always much better. You can see all the swimwear that I have sewed here. Last year I sewed this bikini and this reversible bikini for our eldest (which she... Continue Reading →

Willow (top) and peach (shorts)

Usually I apply for pattern tests for dresses. However, our eldest is wearing more and more pants. So the Willow top from Boo and Lu Patterns* is a perfect addition to her wardrobe. And since I found out she only has a few shorts that still fit her it was time to sew some shorts... Continue Reading →

Morgana Zip-up dress

Sometimes I am really surprised with what our eldest likes. When I saw the Morgana Zip-up dress by Designs by Call Ajaire (now available in the Project run + Play store) I thought it would be a great dress. When I was picking out fabrics I could not really find a fabric that I thought... Continue Reading →

V from Volare sweater

I sewed some new sweaters for myself perfect for cooler spring or fall weather. I used the new release from Sofilantjes* the Volare Sweater. I love the V shape colour block in the sweater. I really like the design of the sweater but sewing 12 V's wasn't my favorite activity. I have tried several ways... Continue Reading →

Edge fold dress

The Edge fold top and dress by Misusu is again one of those gems that you just need to try. It only has 3 pattern pieces and... Continue Reading →

First summer dress of this year

Although the temperatures are not summery at all, I did sew my first summer dress: the Sprinkle Sweets Bow Back Pattern from Candy Castle Patterns*. Our eldest and me really like tiered dresses, so that is always a winner here. This time it is a woven dress. I am participating in the #lastsewiststanding challenge, which... Continue Reading →

Opal dress from Boo and Lu Patterns

Yes, another new pattern release from Boo and Lu Patterns*. Our girls really like the dresses from Boo and Lu Patterns, especially those with the illusion of wearing a top over a dress. The opal top and dress again has the illusion of wearing a gathered top over a dress. Great to decide quickly what... Continue Reading →

Vivax dress for women

Luckily our daughter wasn't the only one who received a new Vivax dress. It is finally time for an Adult Vivax top and dress from Sofilantjes*. I sewed up three Vivax dresses for myself all with the cowl add on. I am a big fan and wore all of them since I sewed them. I... Continue Reading →
