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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Sunshine swirl skirt

Candy Castle Patterns are always a bit hit in our house and so is the new released the Sunshine Swirl skirt from Candy Castle Patterns*. I especially love these woven patterns from Candy Castle Patterns, just like the Peppermint swirl skirt, because you can really go all the way depending on the fabrics you choose....

Is it a romper or a dress?

Our girl is a die hard ruffle lover, so when I saw the tester call for the Rimini romper I knew right away our eldest would love it. And indeed, our girl feels that the best part of this pattern are the ruffles (which you can also omit if you like). The Rimini romper from... Continue Reading →

Cocoon dress

Heidi & Finn Patterns are being updated with a projector file. I love the cocoon dress, so this was the perfect moment to sew up another one. In order to get the round shape of the bottom it is designed for French Terry or sweat fabrics. I used leftovers from this dress, which was a... Continue Reading →
