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 →

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 vestĀ fromĀ 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 →

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...

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 →

Tiered rainbow dress

Our girl requested a tiered dress and of course the longer the better. When I was searching for a tiered dress I came across the Talia Tiered dress by Goober Pea Design, which was exactly what I was looking for. It has different sleeve lengths, perfect for different types of weathers. The length of the... Continue Reading →

Cube cardigan from Misusu

A new pattern from Misusu is always a party right? I have sewed many of her patterns and I love each and every one of them. So when I saw a new pattern call I of course applied. I was one of the lucky testers and I sewed two Cube Cardigans from Misusu. The cube... Continue Reading →

Striped leggings in knit denim

Our girl could definitely use some new leggings. She is growing in length, so each season she needs new leggings. Last year I made these leggings and they are already too short. The Callens Leggings (Nederlands patroon) from Sofilantjes are a great addition to your pattern collection because of all the options. We love colour... Continue Reading →
