Boy's love Tractors! 🚜

Image
These good grandma's boys where so Happy when they got T-shirts with Tractors!πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ
I was lucky when I found this jersey on a marked in Utrecht! I knew it was the right choice for the boys :) I have combine the jersey with plain grey so I had enough fabric  to make one for the little boy and one for the oldest.
We are making waffles outside on the veranda, so they are very excited!
This picture was taken the day they got the T-shirts :)



Pattern is from Ottobre magazine.










Vintage Blouse ♥

Image
This is a pattern I have had for a long time.. Finally I found the right fabric and the right time to make it! I have used satin fabric that I fell in love with on a marked in Utrecht 🧑
The blouse has slits at the side and I have hand-stitch the hem and the slits. I like the sleeves with the gathering in the middle. The sleeve hem is gathering as well and with a double layer as cuffs. The small orange buttons are nice with a stone in the middle. They are a treasure from St Petersburg :)








Printed fabric is super cool 😎

My lovely and good friend Inger Hanne 🧑 She's wearing a dress I made of linen and printed stretch fabric.
I just Love this fabulous print fabric, and I have also made a top of it..  I have a special passion for Orange, maybe it's because it gives me Energy! I have used a twin needle for stitching the seams as a decoration.
The dress suits my friend very much, and she looks fabulous!😍

I found the pattern in BurdaStyle issue 05/2008.


Dress with Flowers & Knot

Image
Who doesn't like to have a knotted dress πŸ˜„ This is one of my favorite pattern, and I have made another Dress as a present before. The jersey is a bit thicker than viscose jersey, but I think it was a great choice for the pattern. The hem and sleeve hem are stitched with cover stitch machine,  or you can easily use a double needle for the ordinary sewing machine.

Blouse for a Girl πŸ’•

Image
This sweet little girl asked: "Can you make me a sweater of this gandma?"  and she showed me the fabric she found in my stash. "Of course I will", I said :)
I found the blouse pattern in BurdaStyle 12/2019. The fabric has a bit stretch, but was perfect for the project. The gathering at the waist makes it swing a bit when she moves.
She's Happy to wear the blouse whit all the pink dogs! πŸŽ€

I also added a little loop and a button at the back of the neck.

Halterneck Top!

Image
My lovely model Eva is wearing a halterneck top that is easy to make :) It is a great top for summer and I chose to use striped jersey with a sunny ☼ color. The pattern is from the Burda Easy 03/2020.  The skirt is an earlier project and it's made of floral Georgette.
