Summershorts “Flora”

24 June 2017

Summer just started recently, well the end of spring it was already hot so I consider it to be summer. I made this shorts Flora, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. Since my eldest daughter has been asking for shorts so there she have one now in addition to what she was wearing already before. It is kind of exciting that I was able to sew clothing for my children or even hubby. The jeans was bought at Royal Tissus.

 

 

Damenshirt/Women’s shirt “Sara”

23 June 2017

My second Damenshirt/Women’s Shirt Sara, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. Normally this is better with jersey fabric but in this case I experimented using a cotton fabric but it wasn’t a good idea since I am big on the tummy area, so if using cotton better if I am slim then it wouldn’t be a problem I guess. I combined it with an eyelet fabric yoke that is from my stash. Flowery fabric I bought it from a recent trip to Stoffenspektakel/Marché du Tissu here in Liège, as you can see it from this video.

 

Damenshirt/Women’s Shirt “Sara”

1 June 2017

I made a Damenshirt/Women’s Shirt “Sara”, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. This is so easy to make. I just made this in half a day, from getting your preferred size measurement in a multi-size bodice pattern to your burda tissue paper and then pinning that on your chosen fabrics and cutting it at the same time and then voilà this is the result. I now have a new shirt to wear today especially I am heading out with hubby. Nothing fancy just going to the car mechanic for a simple repair and then bonding time while we stroll in the heat of the sun because we have to wait for an hour.

 

Jerseykleid Mira

21 May 2017

A Jerseykleid Mira, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. It is not that I am bragging but compare to sewing clothes with bags, clothes are much easier to sew. I made this dress for my eldest daughter for her “Profession de Foi”/Grand Communion last 21 May. The last photo (with her sister) is what she wears in the ceremony. It is my daughter who chose this pattern. Bought the fabric at www.cotonurbain.be and it is a bit pricier because its an organic fabric. The brown fabric is bought at stoffenspektakel recently.20170521_15124720170521_123352

 

Hoodie/Kapuzenpullover Lynn

11 March 2017

A Hoodie or Kapuzenpullover Lynn, pattern is from http://www.pattydoo.de. I do not remember when I cut this fluffy fabric but most probably two months ago, yeah that long. This is also one of the pending projects that I would have done last December. In this case, I got disappointed because its fluffy and by being fluffy fabric it is indeed hard to sew, there will be shifting going on due to the fluffiness. And yes this hoodie have lots of imperfections well I do always have that in all my projects. But I am happy I was able to pull through with this project so that is quite ok now. If ever I will sew this again I would maybe choose a fleece or a jersey.

 

Lamise Pleated Pants

5 March 2017

A “Lamise” Pleated Pants/Bundfaltenhose, pattern is from http://www.pattydoo.de. I have printed this pattern long time ago, well actually it was meant for Christmas 2016 and of course that did not happen. I was mainly prioritizing my family’s clothing rather than myself and that I lack time as well, my fault also. Anyway, now it did happen yessss! I took the biggest size ever on the pattern and then I analyze it with the existing pants that I have (which is already worn out, as in, actually it is already ruined on the inside leg area due to rubbing of my inner thighs while walking). I went to two sizes smaller basing on the pants that I still have. And when I was cutting the fabric this morning then I realized that it is indeed pleated that is why it is much bigger on the upper area of the pants pattern compare to the existing pants. First time to make pants for myself, so I am quite hesitant to do it because I might get disappointed unlike when I am doing bags it is quite okay if I made some mistakes or imperfections it can be given away and they would still appreciate it never can tell the difference but if its a pants who can I give that to, nowadays people are more fashion conscious, a different feeling actually between pants/clothings and bags. Not that I am bragging but this pants was easy to do aside from the help of the youtube video pattydoo posted. I use serger and then sew it with the sewing machine to secure the stitches and to be neater inside the pants. I have not finished the hem because I do not know yet if I will make it exactly my length or to have it folded. I was surprised to find out that it did fit me but not pleased with my body figure which I have been ignoring most of the time. The pants looks good but the pleats don’t go along with me because having a big body figure, pleats should be eliminated in my case. Next time I will try disassembling or seam ripping my existing pants and remake such size and also to try loosing weight maybe I will be much more happier with the result of the pants that I will create. 🙂
