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 →

Big Friendly Hoodie for lounging

In the beginning of December, 5 out of 4 patterns* released the big friendly hoodie, a free pattern (until December 31st 2021) to create a big comfy hoodie. We were about to go to friends one evening and I thought, these hoodies are perfect for the ride back. These friends live about 5 quarters of... Continue Reading →

Winter Bounce dress

Not too long ago the Bounce sweater from The Sewn Edge was released and I sewed one sweater for our middle girl. Just before Christmas a free winter applique (free for members of the Facebook group) was released and I fell right in love with the applique. So I added it to my to sew... Continue Reading →

Another alpenfleece dress

Our middle girl loves soft and warm fabrics, such as alpenfleece. Recently, her favourite outfits are this Foliis dress and this Bounce sweater, because they are so nice and soft on the inside. So I let our two eldest girls pick out some new alpenfleece fabrics. The first alpenfleece dress that I sewed for our... Continue Reading →

The fling hoodie dress just released and the zippered jacket will release later. During testing I sewed up the zippered jacket, which... Continue Reading →

Skruffle and Bounce

I love the different patterns from The Sewn Edge. I have sewed the Float dress and the Skruffle leggings have been on my sewing list for a while. When I saw a call for testers for the Bounce Sweatshirt I jumped (...) on the occasion. Our eldest is not into sweaters too much but our... Continue Reading →

Teddy Cicero in fall colours

I love comfortable warm vests, but our eldest is all about dresses. So I basically sew dresses for her. Last year she did have a favourite vest with a soft cuddly inside, which is now pasted on to her sister. When she saw it again she said she wanted another one of those. That combined...

Alpenfleece Foliis

I wanted to make a dress with alpenfleece fabric. The Foliis Jacket and dress from Sofilantjes* works great with thicker fabrics and I wanted to try an option that I didn't sew yet. I sewed this dress with the zipper some years ago. Time to sew another, or actually two. For our eldest I sewed... Continue Reading →
