In November I asked two of my closest sewcialist friends (Hanne and Caroline) to take pictures of all my maternity makes at once. I didn´t get round to taking photographs by myself due to the horrible weather and the lack of indoor location. I also never got round to blogging about the makes BUT because I really enjoyed looking at other people´s maternity makes while I was pregnant I´ve decided to blog about all my (favourite) makes now. You´ll see more maternity makes popping up in the upcoming weeks while I edit pictures and write posts.
It’s not a secret that I’m usually not a fan of the cutesy style of Tilly. But when she released Bettine I was sold. I didn’t need a new dress pattern but still I couldn’t resist. I blame early pregnancy hormones.
I sewed and wore this dress at the end of August. I took pictures the same weekend but since I took them inside they are no good (even after 3 tries). It was my first attempt at getting back to blogging but I didn’t want to go outside and take pictures, so I used our wardrobe wall… The only thing I like about these pictures is my hair… Before the hairdresser chopped off way too much 😦
First on my list of maternity makes was this cosy oversized cardigan. I’d spotted it in the new September issue of Knipmode and it seemed perfect as a nice oversized maternity cardigan.
I wanted to blog about another wrap dress I made but the weather and a teething 20 month old got in the way for now. So while you eagerly await those pictures, let me tell you about my sewing plans for this Fall/Winter.
My maternity makes were all over the place last time and I’ve ditched them all. There just wasn’t anything special about them and they didn’t coordinate at all. I’ve been meaning to make a capsule wardrobe for ages but so far it’s proven harder than I expected , seeing I like to start from scratch but I don’t want to throw out any of my clothes…
So with almost no maternity clothes left and Fall just around the corner, I’ve decided to do a quick brainstorm on what to make.
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve written an actual finished outfit post. No excuses, just life I guess. For months now, I’ve been looking for the perfect wrap dress pattern. If I could afford a real DvF dress, I would wear only those. The pattern itself was also way above my budget… There must be millions of other patterns out there (and a few in my stash) but none of them really spoke to me. I was either dreading the tracing, the taping or the altering. I gave the Style Arc Kate a try, but didn’t get any further … Continue reading Sunny Sunday Morning Wrap Dress
I like to plan my sewing, I spend more time planning than actually sewing and then I want to kick myself for not putting my words (or drawings) into action. I told you about my Spring sewing plans, I finished the copy of the dress and love it, but haven’t gotten round to taking pictures yet. But just the colour scheme wasn’t enough. My drawing went into overdrive and I experimented a bit in Photoshop. I wanted to try my hand at creating a beautiful capsule wardrobe (there’s a lot of clothes, ‘cuz I don’t do minimal) These were just … Continue reading Spring and Summer sewing 2015 part 2
It’s February and I can’t wait for Spring to begin so I can start sewing my warm weather wardrobe! Sure, I’ve got a massive backlog of winter sewing to blog about but since those clothes are on constant rotation they are never available for photographing when the light outside is somewhat decent. Truth be told, they’ll probably never make it onto the blog but I’m not going to feel bad about it 🙂 A few years ago I bought a dress, it was relatively cheap and the amount of ironing it required drove my mother insane. But I wore it … Continue reading Spring & Summer Sewing 2015
