Stripes Forever !

Image
๐Ÿ’™This is my husband's shirt ๐Ÿ’™ I found it in his wardrobe, but luckily it became mine! ๐Ÿ˜„ I cut of the sleeves and the collar, but kept the collar-stand. Then I cut it curved at the waist to fit better. I like to combine different fabric and colors.. I had a white sheet that I bought for a toga-party,  and now it would be great to combine with the stripes.  I found a blouse pattern in BurdaStyle issue 05/2019  and thought the sleeves could be great for the shirt dress. As you can see it was a lot of darts to sew before I could sew the sleeve band. I cut the skirt on bias so it fall very nicely. I figure it was nice to wear with a belt, so I made one of the same white sheet. So now I'm ready for summer ☼

Tunic for my Friend ♥

Image
Ji-Ha ♪♫ My lovely singing Friend Torhild๐Ÿ’— This is a crazy fabric I bought at  Alfatex  in Germany. I can't help it, but my eyes always get attracted to such printed-letter-drawing-fabric.. ๐Ÿคฉ Even though this is a tunic, my friend can use it as a dress  or together with black pant if she like :)   I think it's nice with the pockets and the inserted panels on the sides. It also has a drawstring on the lower part.  The neck of this pattern is a bit special. It looks like a cowl neck, but it's sewn on. I have used a German pattern from My Image.

Refashion Top with split ☼

Image
I wanted to make a top for my skirt before our holiday ☼ Since I didn't have any blue fabric which suits the skirt I found a T-shirt in my son's wardrobe. I hope he doesn't miss it...๐Ÿ˜†  I manage to cut out all the parts.. As you can see I have used the orange print on the back side of the slits. It's an easy and short top, but it was perfect to wear together with my skirt as I wished๐Ÿ˜„ Pattern from BurdaStyle 03/2000

Linen Batik Dress :)

Image
I was curious about this pattern and had to make it a try!  I found the linen batik fabric in my stash, and I wonder why I didn't use this before... Linen fabric is wonderful to use on a warm sunny day ☼ I wanted to have an exposed zipper, this is 30 cm long,  and I made a little alternation with the flounces beside the zipper. I like the flounce collar and I think it's a great detail too. I made a belt of the same fabric, but I think it will be very nice  together with a camel brown belt and shoes too ๐Ÿ‘ข๐Ÿ’™ BurdaStyle #107 03/2020

Summer Tank Top

Image
๐ŸŒธ Tank Top with Flowers ๐ŸŒธ I wanted to make a new tank top for my holiday, and I found this pattern in an old Burdastyle. The fabric is a kind of stretch mesh fabric, and since it's transparent I have used lining for the upper-part.    I have made an alternation for the upper front part with gathering in the middle. Instead of using twin needles for the hem, I have zig-zag it with narrow stitches. BurdaStyle 05/2004
