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…

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…

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)….

Laurel Dress

I bought the printed version of this dress last year but it has taken me forever to succeed with the Laurel Dress . I didn’t find the right fabric for it and then I had a spillage of film developing chemicals over a bag that contained the papper pattern among other things and had to…

He tejido dos cosas y he cosido dos cosas, ya hablare de todo cuando tenga la oportunidad de fotografiarme con las prendas. También he empezado los Ginger Jeans pero ya los he abandonado. Lo último que he tejido es…

Camisa Archer de Grainline Studio

Durante el el periodo navideno me he lanzado a hacer mi primera camisa con cuello. Seguro que hay términos más técnicos para todas estas palabras de costura pero yo las desconozco, es lo que tiene aprender a coser por internet. Grainline Studio tiene una serie de patrones básicos, sencillos, chulos y bien explicados. Ya he…

Caperucita Roja

Un día tuve que fabricar un difraz de caperucita para un evento del colegio. Esto es lo que hice – o sea, que cosí la capita. Quería que fuera una foto muy misteriosa de una pobre niña perdida en el bosque, pero no había manera de que no se riera. Estas fotos no me disgustan,…

MMM16 – round up

Last month I sort of participated in MMM16. I didn’t share daily photos of my self made garments but I wore something I made 27 out of the 31 one days, not bad. I had plans to make a few more garments during May but that didn’t happen. In the end I washed practically all…
