A Sweater became a Skirt! πŸ’›

My lovely model and singing Star Torhild ♪♫ The skirt is made of a wool sweater turned up-side-down with a rubberband at the waist. The  Refashion Top  is from an earlier project.  The yellow sleeves have been used to make  Another Dress  πŸ’› These are the garments I have used to make the twin-set. Very simle, but stylish πŸ’« Torhild on the Catwalk πŸ˜‰

Fantail Shirt!

This is my favorite color at the moment! πŸ’™ - and together with printed chiffon fabrid for the sleeves - I just love it! I'm not a big fan of pdf pattern, but it's very easy to order! This Fantail shirt pattern is from  The Sewing Revival I found this cool printed chiffon in my stash and thought it would be nice together with the jersey. I had to think twice which color to choose for the bias around the neck. I ended up with black chiffon! The hi-low effect for the hem is nice - and also with the rubber band in front.

Blazer for a Young Man!

I wanted to make a blazer for our son.  I asked him if he like this canvas linen, and he said: "Oh, that's cool!" I found the fabric at I have cut all the fabric pieces. The welt pocket is sewn in place. I have made outside pockets, but it's not so easy to see. I have used both "sleeve fish" and shoulder pads for the shoulders. The lining is made of cotton, I have only used micro satin for the sleeves. I have used vliseline for both collar pieces to make it stable. On the Catwalk!

Men's Origami Shirt πŸ‘”

I wanted to make a special shirt with origami for our son. I draw lines on the upper back part - - and I made inserts with triangles for the pleats. This is how it's gonna be. I deceided to make spiral origami for one of the sleeves too. This is how the pattern looks like. The pics on the left show the backside om the origami patterns. After cutting out the sleeve I have to fold it exact as the pattern. The sleve is finished. I thought I should make a little spiral origami for the front pocket as well. This is the backside of the pocket pattern. The origami pocket is sewn on the left front part. The collar has to be sewn. On the Catwalk! BurdaStyle pattern #143 06/2016
