Sudadera de Tercipelo

Esté bien o mal, no me apetece nada coser para otros. O dicho de otra forma, coser es algo que hago para mi. Lo de ser madre superperfecta y devota y hacerle la ropa a tus pequeños descendientes está muy bien para lucirlos, pero que te voy a decir, es una pena perder tu tiempo…

Garamond Top

  I am so in love with this make. This Garamond top was released at the end of Summer 2017 and I managed to make it for winter, totally inappropriate. But all the best so I can make a bunch of them for next summer.It was a joy to make once I decided to put…

Kyoto Sweater Weekend

So this was my weekend. Kyoto Sweater, pattern by Paper cut patterns, happened over the weekend. It took a couple of late nights after the kids went to bed and three episodes of the Night Manager. I used the softest thinnest jersey with wool that I bought last year in a sale for the Moneta…

Dos Sudaderas Linden

  These are the two Linden Sweatshirts that I made earlier in the year. They are my weekly staples and I don’t know what am I waiting for to make a couple more? The only negative about this wardrobe essential is the size of the neck collar piece, it should be longer and wider. The…

Charlie Caftan take II

  This is one of the three blue fabric dresses that I managed to sew last Summer. I love this Pollocky motif on the fabric from Merchant and Mills, and being the second time I made this Charile pattern from Closet Case Patterns, the whole project was finished in a couple of days. I am…

Valencia en B&N

Hoy he recogido unas fotos del estudio de fotografía que procedían de unos carretes que tenía al fondo de la mochila. Eran de la pasada Semana Santa cuando fui a Valencia. Bien por la inmediatez de las redes sociales !! He usado perlícula de Ilford y la cámara es LC-Wide de Lomography, que parece ser…

Vestido Wren de Florecitas

n Today I am posting to participate in a sewing group I have just discovered. I am sharing my third, and last! Wren dress by Colette. I am not happy with the result because I think the overlapping pieces of the front body don’t suit my ‘front’ and the whole thing creeps up from too…

Rumi pattern by Christine Haynes

I have made four Rumies this Summer, but I still want to have one of each colour. The Rumi pattern is asuper useful piece for any wardrobe. The first I have made is one in a navy viscose that I bought in John Lewis (a big store) in Cambridge. On this ocasion I made the dress version but…

Grabrielle dress from Seamwork

I have sewn lots of clothes lately. In the summertime, if I wanted to, I could wear a me made everyday. I have managed to make one or two items a month in 2017. I don’t post about them, mainly, because I don’t have decent photos. I don’t have anyone willing to take 50 shots…

Tormenta

Estoy en Mojácar, Almería, y ayer llovió todo el día lluvia suave, pero al caer la noche se transformó en tormenta espectacular. Hice unas 100 fotos para capturar un par de rayitos que me han hecho mucha ilusion. These are images for an electric storm last night in Mojácar, in Almería, Spain.

Caftan What?

Seems that this is a species of dress, not just a generic dress. Originally more like a jilbaab, now degenerated to comfortable dress for women to keep their armpits free, still covering the modesty of the shoulders and granting the whole the female sex great opportinities to draw looks into the cleavages (see pic here)….

Libros de Abril

Leerme el Mundo The Abandoned Baobad es el libro que he escogido para el país de abril: Senegal. Senegal ha sido dificilillo ya que al ser un país francófono  su literatura esta disponible casi exclusivamente en francés. Aunque antes he dicho que ‘he elegido’ este libro, más bien tendría que haber dicho que es el…
