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 →

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 →

Another Brueram dress with shirring

Remember this Brueram dress that I sewed last year? Both our eldest and me fell in love with that dress. This year it was time for a Brueram top and dress from Sofilantjes* for our middle one. It is the perfect light summer dress with the woven fabric. Yes, the Brueram dress is back! It... Continue Reading →

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 →
