Dress for a Good Friend ๐Ÿ’•

Image
My Lovely and Good Friend Torunn ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™ I wanted to surprice my good friend with a new dress. Mostly we like similar colors,  so my choice was this floral viscose fabric that I fell in love with. The dress has two pleats at the neck, and a split at the back for the opening. It has also cuffs as a finish for the sleeves and I have used "diamonds" as buttons ๐Ÿ’Ž I think she looks fabulous in her dress!   BurdaStyle #120 11/2020 Today we were enjoying the snow! ⛄

Jacket with Sleeve & Pocket Origami๐Ÿ’›

Image
For this jacket I have used two different origami techniques: 1. Petal origami on the right sleeve and 2. Pocket origami for the right front. Both origami techniques I have learnd by  TR Cutting School  ๐Ÿ™ I start with drawing the lines where I'm gonna insert the triangles. This is how the pattern look like when it's finished. When putting the pattern together, this is how it's going to be. I have choose to use yellow cotton fabric because this color makes me in a Good Mood! I cut it out and fold it, sew it, adn then it's finished.  Pocket for the right front part. This is how the patten looks like when it's finished. You can see how it's gonna be after folding it together. Front part is sewn together, and you can put a pencil in the pocket ๐Ÿ˜Š I cut out the other parts for the jacket. The peplum below the waist was to wide, so I had to adjust it a bit. To make nice curves it's important to cut small notches. The front part,  - and the sleeves are finishedl.

Sweatshirt Jacket for a Super-Boy ๐Ÿ˜„

It's always nice to use "leftovers" and make them useful! I have combined three different sweatshirt fabric to make this jacket. I chose lemon yellow as a pop-up color to make the jacket "Happy"๐Ÿ˜„! Since I also had a yellow zipper it was a great choise! The pocket are stitched on the front panels, and I used yellow tread  as decoration for the seams. The sleeves got an asymmetric line in lack of fabric :) It's a busy Boy ๐Ÿ˜„ Ottobre pattern 06/2012  

Top with different Sleeves!

  This top is made of a pattern that I like a lot! I have made  Crazy fabric Top  earlier ๐Ÿ’ฅ I like the style and the fit is very good with the gathering at the waist. It's easy to combine with different colors and fabric. I had exactly enough of this lovely flower fabric and thought it would be  very nice together with plain black jersey. I have used bias around the neck with a double layer of jersey.  BurdaStyle pattern #113 11/02018
