    Lola floral dress

    A while ago I bought a number of fabrics online at budgetstoffen. I actually only needed one thing, but all stores were closed at the time for known reasons, so to avoid shipping costs, I bought more than strictly necessary. OK yes, that’s the excuse that I keep giving myself;) One of the fabrics I bought was a light, supple…

    Rich Lady Dress

    About three years ago, I bought a few meters of light blue jacquard with a pied-de-poule motif, because it was on sale. When purchasing I had an idea of ​​what I wanted to make with it, but I don’t remember that now. Indeed, another case of me buying something, put it in the attic with the rest of my stash,…

    Snow White’s dress

    My godchild really wanted a dress like Snow White and I actually had a pretty quick idea what kind of dress I wanted to make. Of course it had to be done in the colors blue and yellow, with an accent red at the waist. I also definitely wanted puff sleeves and an A-line, flowy skirt. After some searching, I…

    Snow White Catalina

    For her birthday my goddaughter would have liked a dress like Snow White and I of course was happy to make something along those lines. On Instagram I follow a couple of costume makers and cosplayers, because I’m in real awe about the things they often make. It makes me also want to try my hand at a historical sewing…

    Christmas makes 2018

I had drawn my father for the gifts and he’s more for comic books and practical gifts than crocheted dolls or knitted dresses 😉 So the handmade items were limited to the gifts for my goddaughter. Firstly I sewed her a dress with the left over fabric from my…

    Aster sweater

    When I bought the purple fabric for the cache-coeur pullover, I also bought this flowery fabric with the intention of making a second cache-coeur pullover with it. However, since I wasn’t that pleased with the end result of that sweater, I decided to use the fabric for something else, namely a simple sweater pattern by La Maison Victor, the Aster.…

    Pullover with cache-coeur

    This school year I signed up for sewing lessons for the third year in a row. This time for the “Leisure” module, which means that the focus is more on tricot fabrics. The first project of the school year was a top with a cache-coeur neckline. I chose a slightly heavier tricot in a beautiful plum purple, so it would…

    Birthday presents

    For birthday gifts I often opt to make something myself. And for my godchild I like to do that little bit extra. I started with a simple sewn skirt, that I made in the last sewing class of the school year.    Next I made a requested dress: a Bulle in duck egg blue and purple.    But my actual…

    Left-over skirts

    When I had finished my June dress, I still had a fair amount of the purple fabric left. I didn’t have to think long about what I wanted to make with that: skirts! I hoped I would have enough to make a little skirt for each of my four nieces and I did! For the youngest I did have to…
