Makebra Petite #DL05: In progress

Makebra Petite #DL05: In progress

makeBra recently released a new downloadable pattern and I was quite excited about it. I’ve been wanting to try one of their patterns, but the sizes are too big for me. The newest pattern, makeBra #DL05 is drafted for smaller sizes, featuring foam lined two part cups and underwires. For me, the most interesting part is that the bridge…

Striped tee and chino pants

Striped tee and chino pants

One day Sidra declared that he no longer wanted to wear ‘T-shirts with faces on it’, which means most of his T-shirts. He said that these T-shirts are too childish which doesn’t make sense because he is a child after all! But anyway he’s in constant need of new clothing as he keeps growing, so I…

Striped Jorna dress- Perfect Pattern Parcel #3

My summer dress! The pattern is Jorna Tank Dress by Jenna Brand. It is a very simple dress with basically just one piece of pattern. The front and back is the same except for the neckline. The dress has three different length options: tank, jumper, and dress. I cut the jumper in size XS but since I’m not tall it becomes…

Since I moved to Japan my weight had been slowly creeping up. In the last 6 years I gained 6 kg, while before my weight stayed more or less the same since the college days. Recently I put on one of my handmade dress and it was tight around the waist! It was time to do…

Tara top – Style Arc

Tara top – Style Arc

I was waiting for the bus yesterday when it was raining, so I took shelter in a fabric store nearby. Of course it wasn’t the best decision (or maybe the best), because when I got home  there was suddenly some addition to my mound of fabric stash. To somewhat lessen my guilty feeling, I immediately worked on…

Fuchsia and black bra set

My current favorite bra at the moment is the bronze bra that I made a couple of months ago. The vertical seams on the cups are quite attractive and they’re comfortable to wear. So here is another pair made with the same pattern, Merckwaerdigh BHST2, I made the second variation that have lace inset. This bra pattern actually has interesting low…

Coco cat top

I found this knit fabric with wonderful cat print and had been trying to find the perfect sewing pattern for it. It must be a simple one because I want to be able to wear it daily. Then Tilly came with her  Coco pattern, just right for this fabric! I cut size 2, the top version with…

Goodbye Shiitake and Hello Shoronpo!

Goodbye Shiitake and Hello Shoronpo!

Shiitake finally found his forever family after more than three months in foster care! I was beginning to worry that he wouldn’t get adopted because he was so shy of strangers. Shiitake was fine at home with us, but at the adoption events he would hide in a corner so nobody would see him.He befriended another foster dog called…

Giveaway: JORD wood watch! – CLOSED

Something a little different today! Several weeks ago I got an email from JORD, introducing their line of wood watches and offered me to review a watch of my chosen model. I don’t usually wear wristwatch but actually I like them, especially the classic wristwatch with metal link bands. So when I opened JORD website…

  You might have seen this blazer several times if you follow me in Instagram. This is my new favorite jacket, the Bellatrix blazer by Papercut Patterns! Actually I always thought that I was not a blazer person. Maybe a bomber jacket or coat person, but not a blazer one. However, after seeing so many different version of…
