Stripes Forever !

Image
💙This is my husband's shirt 💙
I found it in his wardrobe, but luckily it became mine! 😄
I cut of the sleeves and the collar, but kept the collar-stand. Then I cut it curved at the waist to fit better.
I like to combine different fabric and colors.. I had a white sheet that I bought for a toga-party,  and now it would be great to combine with the stripes.  I found a blouse pattern in BurdaStyle issue 05/2019  and thought the sleeves could be great for the shirt dress. As you can see it was a lot of darts to sew before I could sew the sleeve band.
I cut the skirt on bias so it fall very nicely.
I figure it was nice to wear with a belt, so I made one of the same white sheet.
So now I'm ready for summer ☼


Tunic for my Friend ♥

Image
Ji-Ha ♪♫ My lovely singing Friend Torhild💗
This is a crazy fabric I bought at Alfatex in Germany. I can't help it, but my eyes always get attracted to such printed-letter-drawing-fabric.. 🤩
Even though this is a tunic, my friend can use it as a dress  or together with black pant if she like :)   I think it's nice with the pockets and the inserted panels on the sides. It also has a drawstring on the lower part. 

The neck of this pattern is a bit special. It looks like a cowl neck, but it's sewn on.
I have used a German pattern from My Image.

Refashion Top with split ☼

Image
I wanted to make a top for my skirt before our holiday ☼
Since I didn't have any blue fabric which suits the skirt I found a T-shirt in my son's wardrobe. I hope he doesn't miss it...😆 

I manage to cut out all the parts.. As you can see I have used the orange print on the back side of the slits.


It's an easy and short top, but it was perfect to wear together with my skirt as I wished😄


Pattern from BurdaStyle 03/2000

Linen Batik Dress :)

Image
I was curious about this pattern and had to make it a try!  I found the linen batik fabric in my stash, and I wonder why I didn't use this before... Linen fabric is wonderful to use on a warm sunny day ☼
I wanted to have an exposed zipper, this is 30 cm long,  and I made a little alternation with the flounces beside the zipper.
I like the flounce collar and I think it's a great detail too.
I made a belt of the same fabric, but I think it will be very nice  together with a camel brown belt and shoes too 👢💙

Summer Tank Top

Image
🌸 Tank Top with Flowers 🌸
I wanted to make a new tank top for my holiday, and I found this pattern in an old Burdastyle. The fabric is a kind of stretch mesh fabric, and since it's transparent I have used lining for the upper-part.    I have made an alternation for the upper front part with gathering in the middle. Instead of using twin needles for the hem, I have zig-zag it with narrow stitches.
