A skort: is it a skirt or a short?

It has been a while since I last posted. First we went on holiday and when I came back I had a sewing dip. This time it lasted longer than normal and signing up for pattern tests is the perfect way for me to get back into sewing. So I signed up for three tests!... 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....

Ruffle skirt

Our eldest has a newfound love for skirts. She loves to combine different garments with each other. So new skirts are always a good idea, especially when it has a ruffle. And the best part about the Isa wrap skort from Petite Stitchery & Co* is that the knee length is perfect for using up... Continue Reading →

Free (midi) Liberam skirt & giveaway

Yay, a free pattern and it is a skirt, the Liberam skirt (Nederlands patroon) from Sofilantjes*! A skirt our critical girl loves. Mainly because of the length and the twirl. She adores maxi length skirts and dresses, but I think midi skirts are even better. They feel long to her, but short enough for me... Continue Reading →

New Sofilantjes release: Amicis

It is time for another new Sofilantjes* pattern! This time it is a basic piece of clothing: the Amicis top, tunic, dress and maxi. It is a quick sew and fits nicely. I sewed the top version of the Amicis, which is the shortest length of the pattern. It includes three more lengths, tunic, dress... Continue Reading →

A twisted outfit: Romy twist tee and skirt

Twisted and asymmetrical clothing are my weak spot, so I fell in love the moment I saw this outfit, the Adult Romy Twist Tee and Skirt from Petite Stitchery*. They look complicated and sophisticated, but they are actually very quick sews. The twist top has three different lengths, I made the regular top length, also... Continue Reading →

Treasures skirts for our girls

Skirts are the next best thing after dresses and sometimes skirts are even better. Especially our middle daughter loves skirts. During my last sewing weekend I sewed up two skirts for our two eldest girls with the Little Treasures Skirt by Duck Butt Designs. If you like colour blocking Duck Butt Designs is a great...
