Another Boo and Lu pattern: Venus dress

I am on a roll with Boo and Lu patterns. I have sewed up four Boo and Lu dresses already (I just finished one, which didn't make it to the blog yet). There is a new Boo and Lu pattern* and I was one of the lucky testers: the Venus top, dress and maxi. The... Continue Reading →

Daisy dress

Usually when I buy fabric I don't buy it with a project in mind. This was the same when I picked out this minerva exclusive Dancing Lights Loop Back French Terry fabric. I did not have a specific project in mind. However when I received the project I felt it should become a top. This... Continue Reading →

A big blue bird

Remember these Urban Jungle soft toys that I sewed for our two eldest? We only had two girls at that moment so of course once our youngest started to realize she did not have one of those big soft toys she started to request one. Enter the perfect Christmas present for our youngest (last year).... Continue Reading →

Birthday dress in velvet

It is our tradition that I sew a birthday dress for our girls. With our eldest I consult with her about the fabrics and pattern that I have in mind. And usually she picks out something a bit different from what I had in mind. This year we agreed on the Raven tunic and dress... Continue Reading →

Christmas Cicero Vests

The Cicero vest from Sofilantjes* is becoming more and more a favorite vest of mine. It is great for thicker fabrics during winter and I love the colour blocking or just the simple version. Until now I just sewed the colour blocked version of the Cicero. For these Christmas Cicero vests I used the simple version of... Continue Reading →

Muskoka colour block fleece dress

Our middle girl loves warm cuddly fabrics and is also feeling the coldest of the family. So I am always in search of sewing patterns for warmer fabrics. Besides straight forward sweaters I have not found too many nice dresses. When I saw the tester call for the updated Muskoka Fleece dress and tunic from... Continue Reading →

Papavero asymmetrical dress

Some time ago I received this beautiful Minerva Exclusive viscose challis fabric from Minerva. I fell in love with the print the moment I saw it. Those colors, such a bright and happy print. I just wanted it right away. I was very happy that I was one of the lucky ones to receive the... Continue Reading →

December fest: origami dress with hood

Misusu is definitely a pattern designer that always makes me want to sew her patterns. I have added a couple more these week. I have sewed a lot of different Misusu Patterns but the Origami sweater wasn't one of them. Probably because I didn't know it included a dress length. All Misusu patterns are now...

Christmas ornaments

I love Christmas and I love sewing for our Christmas tree even more! I just hung our Christmas Advent Calendar so the Christmas spirit is starting in our house. I sewed our family in mini pals some time ago, which our youngest still loves to play with, so when I saw the mini pals holiday... Continue Reading →

Papilio dresses

Our eldest loves tiered dresses. I already made a rainbow tiered dress in the beginning of the year. So when the tester call for the Papilio dress from Sofilantjes* came she immediately loved it, especially with the ruffle. For the first dress she of course chose blue fabrics (her favorite colors lately, you can see... Continue Reading →
