Twisted Gathered Drape Dress!➰

Image
This is another pattern from drape drape 3!I'm always curious to try out new patterns. As you can see this is very special..
 I had exactly enough of this fabric. Normally I would choose a colorful fabric,  but when you make draping garments it's best to use plain colors,  and for the moment I didn't have any colorful plain jersey. The draping and the gathering shows better than on a very colorful jersey. This was a great challenge and I like the twisted style πŸ–€ It suppose to wear as a dress, but for me it was a bit short,  so I think I prefer to use it together with some colorful tights! 
As you can see the sides looks very different.

Sweater with Tools!

This was a great fabric to make a sweater for a school boy! I fell in love with it on a marked in Utrecht in the Netherlands. It has all the tools you can wish for if you like to do some handy works!πŸ”§πŸ”¨

90's Vintage Jacket πŸ’š

Image
This is a vintage pattern from 1991.  It's always nice to try the same pattern you have used earlier for a new garment,  and of course it will be different because you use another fabric and maybe the sewing skills is better than is was.. I only bought one meter of the jersey because I wasn't sure about the color,  but I was not disappointed.  
I thought black was perfect together with this green color. Therefore I decides to use a black zipper and decorated with the black ribbons. I made the Pants for a member model challenge at BurdaStyle some years ago.

The interface for the jacket.
I have ironed a piece of vlise where the zipper is going to be. I made button holes for the drawstring.
Zipper is sewn in place.
The interface is sewn afterward and with an inner seam.
Sleeves have to come next.



I found a finished ribbon for the cuffs.

Stripes & Key Hole

Image
I love to wear top with sleeves when it's a little chilly. This is a pattern I like very much and have used several times before.Stripes are versatile and can be used for any occasion.
You can either use a curtain ring or a key hole ring for the top.I have tried both, and it works! It's not so easy to sew around the key hole on thesewing machine, so I prefer to hand stitch around it. Jersey is comfy to wear and this top is rather easy sewing.
