Coming projects Posted on Sat, April 11, 2015 10:26:33

The pile of none-uses materials has grown rather substantial during the last weeks. I have come over so many beautiful patterns, and I have enough material for at least 15 long dresses – and a rain coat!

Here are four samples:

From right:
Printed jersey (viscose 90%, stretch 5%, other fibres 5%)
Raincoat material, seagreen with a 3D effect (polyester 100%)
Printed jersey (viscose 90%, stretch 5%, other fibres 5%)
Red printed fabrics (not sure of type)



Blue silk dress

Past projects Posted on Sat, April 11, 2015 10:11:04

For the past week I have had the honour of making the acquaintance with a terrific new sewing machine. My first project on this digital wonder was a blue silk long-dress which I must say complements my features very well.

The colour is a deep blue one, and the pattern is gold. Love it! On each side I have a long split, almost all the way up the side of the legs. When I tried the finished dress on, I decided to match it with a shiny golden stretch-belt. Think it turned out to be very nice!

Now, I have bought quite a few samples of possible dress materials, and I can’t wait to start on my new projects on this machine. Only thing is time. Unfortunately there is so little of it…
