Day 2 - Camelia Debruin
Hi , it is so nice to be here as a part of Ellen`s Advent Calendar.
I am Camelia (or CalcedoniaSewing
and living for more than 13 years in The Netherlands.
I started sewing in 2008 trying to find something to keep me busy
and years later it became a small (read BIG:) obsession,
next to collecting fabric and patterns, I don`t want to call it hoarding 😂
One of my favorite fabric to work with is denim
and I love making jeans and denim dresses.
The dress above is from KnipMode Magazine 6/2018,
a Dutch sewing magazine.
I love this dress and I have all the details on my blog
My sewing tip:
Make a test garment (muslin, toile) to know the fit of the pattern
you are making, to learn the construction of it and
to see if you like the silhouette.
That will save you a lot of tears, time and money
(by not wasting nice fabric)
