Bellatrix blazer – Papercut patterns

  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 ofContinue Reading →

Another couple of Style Arc patterns! The first one is Cyd top, a peplum top with asymmetric seam lines across the front, front pleats, cap sleeves, and invisible zip on the center back.

Since a number of satisfying projects with Style Arc patterns, I have ordered a few more from them. This is Issy knit top, which is the freebie for every purchase in February.

Kate dress (and thoughts about sewing everyday clothes)

  Next from my growing Style Arc pattern stash! This is Kate dress, a wrap dress inspired by Kate Middleton’s engagement dress. It has several reviews on PatternReview who mostly highly recommend it.

I love my new jacket! The pattern is Rigel bomber by Papercut patterns. The first time I saw it was in Sophie’s blog with her wonderful polkadot version. Since then I couldn’t get rid of the image of my own bomber jacket from my mind. I wanted a bomber jacket, and it had to be inContinue Reading →

In my previous post, I talked about my plan to sew more solid neutral colors. I have many printed fabric in my wardrobe that can’t be worn together because they would clash.

My first Style Arc pattern: Lola pants!

My first Style Arc pattern: Lola pants!

Scheduling the daily walk with the dogs became a bit complicated since Shiitake came along. He is young and bigger than Fuwawa, so he is not satisfied with the time Fuwawa needs for a walk. On the other hand, Fuwawa gets too tired if she has to follow Shiitake. I have thought about taking them separately butContinue Reading →

Can’t you believe that it is already the end of the year again?? As usual I love to put together all things that I have sewn in one post to see how I have been doing this year. Some pieces got worn a lot, and some don’t get much wearing time. I think it helpsContinue Reading →

Every version of the dress that popped up around the net is looking so good that I couldn’t resist joining the bandwagon. Here’s the description of the Lady Skater dress pattern from the KitschyContinue Reading →
