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 →

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 →

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 →

Free cowl add on for vivax dress

Already 5 years ago the vivax dress was released. I tested the Vivax dress back then for our eldest. At the moment our youngest is wearing my first Vivax. And now there is a free cowl add on for the kid's Vivax top and dress from Sofilantjes*, so I sewed another Vivax. This time I... Continue Reading →

Girl’s polar sweater dress

A new sweater dress! I love sweater dresses! So when I heard about the new sweater dress pattern from Sofiona Designs I was interested. Then I saw the girl's Polar Sweater/Dress and I fell in love right away with the shorter front and longer back. Our eldest also loved it right away and of course... Continue Reading →

Magical twirl dresses

These twirl dresses have something magical because some extra pieces of fabric appear when twirling. Our girls love their Twirl Magic dresses from Ellie and Mac Patterns*. I made these dresses already a year ago during my last sewing weekend (the first one is 2 years because of Corona). So I cut them out beforehand... Continue Reading →
