Refashion Top & New Skirt

This is a lovely top I had from my mum💗 I have just made a wider neck, some pleats in front and added a waistband. I made an easy skirt to fit with the top with darts at the back, and then it's a New dress!


OHLALA! This is also one of the newest pattern from BurdaStyle ! First of all: I'm in love with this fabric ♥ It's also bought in St Petersburg together with my sewing friends ✂ It's cotton with stretch and satin lining with polka dots. The upper part of the dress is one pcs with cap sleeves which makes it's very nice. The skirt with slits makes it flow when walking, so I imagine it will be the perfect dancing dress ♪♫

Easy Refashion & FUN

This is an Easy way to make a refashion dress! I have only used two old T-shirts.
As you can see on the picture below: I have cut of the sleeves, and the lower part of the white to make it fit to the waist. I have also cut the the letters of the front part as a V-neck and turned it back-forward. I have adjusted the the upper part of my son's T-shirt with curves to fit like a skirt. Then sewing it together to make a dress. To make a little popping I made a ribbon around the neck,  and put a string through the holes in the ribbon😉

Halter Style Dress

What is nicer than a Halter Style Dress for summer 🌸 The fabric feels like silk, so soft even though it is polyester blend. I bought the fabric for the Sewing Bee Challenge 2017 and my plan was to use it for the bathrobe. Since I found a fabric that I like even more, this has been in my stash for a while.. I thought it would be nice for this pattern and with wiener-pleats it has to be very soft draped. It was a bit challenging to make lining for the upper part, but with some hand-stitching it went well. I didn't line the skirt, I like the flow when I'm moving and it feels very nice to the skin :)

Blue Flowers ►

Flowers = Summer! 🌺🌻🌼 Jersey is comfy to were and love sewing with jersey! This is a pattern I wanted to try, and I found the floral jersey in my stash. Turquoise together with red is a great combination. The dress has loops and buttons in front, but it's more for decoration since I easily can take the dress over the head without opening. I have used stones as buttons which I think is very nice :)

Silk Blouse

Silk fabric is delicious to wear, but can be a challenge to sew.. Therefore I chose to use an easy pattern from BurdaStyle.
I have used "french seams" for the shoulders, sides and sleeves as shown on the photo below.
The fabric is rather special with the circles and different colors. I was lucky to find it on our fabric-tour with my sewing friends in Saint Petersburg. 
I have hand-stitched the inner-cuffs for the sleeves and also for the hem since the fabric is so delicate 💚
