Top with Print

I love sewing with jersey and printed fabric is one of my favourites :)
The lower part is cut on bias, so it has a nice shape and I think
the drawstring in front makes it feminine.
Since I have used stretchy fabric I omitted the darts at the back upper part
and also the zipper at the side. 

 I found the pattern for this top in BurdaStyle 06/2005.
You can also make it with long sleeves and then you have a nice flounce as finishing.

Marfy Dress

           I have waited for the right moment trying out this Marfy pattern. It's from the catalogue 2014/15. 
           It has a nice square neck and to pop it up I've used the technique with peter ribbon. 
           Enclosed a picture from BurdsStyle. 
           Black linen is great sewing with, and it makes it special with the back length a bit longer than in front as well. 
           I wasn't sure to put on the short sleeves, and I think it was nice without as well, but then I can use it even if the weather is a bit colder :)

Blouse with Drawstring

For this blouse I have used crinkled cotton with embroidery and I think it was a good choice. 
It's a bit special with the drawstring for the collar and the tiny belt at the waist. 
It's based on pattern #113 Burda 07.2007 and it's very comfy to wear :)

                                            The skirt is from an earlier project.
