Asymmetrical women’s top

Our girl was not the only lucky one to receive a Felix top. I also sewed a Felix top for myself and I love this new pattern from Sofilantjes*. I basically love everything about it: the flowyness, the asymmetrical top and hem, the fact that the band covers your bra band. You can finish the... Continue Reading →

Sleeveless ruffle top

Time to start with the summer wardrobe and anything with ruffles is a hit with our eldest (and also with our middle one). When I saw the tester call for this Sevilla Sleeveless Top pattern, which has the option of adding a ruffled shoulder, I knew it would be a hit with our eldest. Especially... Continue Reading →

Free colour block add-on

I love colour blocking. It always looks better with some more colour being added. So a free add-on for a colour block is a great idea. Today I am showing you the free add-on for the Regem and ADVtee from Sofilantjes*. The free add-on gives you the opportunity to add a strip colour block to... Continue Reading →

Regem t-shirt for men

Yes! Sewing for the man is your life. He is definitely the one that I sew for the least, so he and I were very happy that I could test for him. Meet the Regem shirt from Sofilantjes* for the men in our life. The basic Regem shirt, option A, is a quick sew and... 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 →

Every time I am amazed how Elles from Misusu designs a new pattern that is so out-of-the-box and different from what I have seen so far. This is also the case for the new released shift tee! This shift tee is perfect for colour blocking and using up scraps, which is totally in my alley.... Continue Reading →

Flounce love

Every time I sew something with a flounce for one of our daughters, our eldest asks for one for herself. So I knew this top would be a hit with her. It is the Ylva's dream dress (and top) from Made by Runi. Indeed she is over the moon with the top, although she does... Continue Reading →

Elliot dress from PS&co

I loved the dress version of the baby Elliot romper & dress from Petite Stitchery. I think it is perfect for warm weather and great for layering. The pattern includes a bandeau (strapless top) and a cami, which makes a great set! The pattern includes both a romper and a dress. Since we are hoping... Continue Reading →

OT: Diamondback top

The new One Thimble, issue 28*: Game on, is here! A digital sewing magazine with sewing patterns, pattern hacks, tutorials, articles and inspiration. This issue is discounted until this Friday. I sewed the Diamondback Cami & Crop from Designs by Call by Ajaire from this issue. It is a pattern that works great for tops... Continue Reading →

Summer top: Artemis

Although it is freezing cold when I am writing this post I did sew up my first summer top. Summer tops are great during summer but also work great during winter for layering. So she can already wear her summer top now. I used the Artemis top from Stitch upon a time*. The Artemis top... Continue Reading →
