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

Knitted fabric Dress! πŸ’–

My lovely sewing friend Monica Cecile 🀩 She is making fabulous clothing for her self as well. We met at the Norwegian Sewing Bee a few years ago. The dress suits her much better than me πŸ˜‰ I have used knitted cotton fabric that are double woven, so it's a bit heavy, but perfect for autumn and winter! The collare is made of double layer, but then it will for sure stay in place. My other sewing friend Trudie   from The Netherlands together with Monica.  The dress can be used with a closed-collar or lay down as you prefer. BurdaStyle 01/2021 Good Friends πŸ’–
