October is for sew-alongs!

October is for sew-alongs!

Oooh so many sew-alongs are happening right now and in the near future! Decisions, decisions (although I will probaby end up not following any of these….). I am torn between making the Anise jacket from Colette or Butterick 5828 coat by Gertie. A jacket will have more time to be worn than a coat, butContinue Reading →

Camo pants

Camo pants

Another pair of camo print pants for Sidra. The fabric is medium weight Japanese cotton, very comfortable and suitable for children’s wear. Actually the print is more like swishes and drops of paint, but the whole look is similar to camo print. I think that was why Sidra chose this print when we went fabricContinue Reading →

Men’s Jeans

Men’s Jeans

I finally finished my husband’s jeans! It seems that everyone has finished their jeans, and Peter has even gone to another adventure in making pajama and playing with his serger. But it is still May, so I guess I’m not too far behind the sew-along…. (^_^;) The pattern is Men’s Jeans from Pumila, a JapaneseContinue Reading →

KCWC: Khaki pants

KCWC: Khaki pants

My last project for KCWC 2011!  These pictures were taken today, but actually I’ve finished the pants a couple of days ago. It is again a recycle project, a pair of pants made with my husband’s old and ripped pants. My husband has several pants that were ripped in the most unfortunate places hence heContinue Reading →

Jeans sew-along: Wearable muslin!

Jeans sew-along: Wearable muslin!

Coming late for the MPB Jeans Sew-Along, but I finally finished the first muslin for my husband’s jeans. The brushed cotton twill was only 1 m, so the muslin is cropped as I only need to check the fit around waist and hip area. The finished jeans will be full-length. The pattern is Men’s jeans fromContinue Reading →

KCWC: Broken striped T-shirt

KCWC: Broken striped T-shirt

Found a T-shirt in a thrift shop with similar pattern as my broken striped top but in black stripes. I refashioned into a T-shirt for Sidra. The original top is not very big, so I use black jersey from other T-shirt for the sleeves. The pattern is PDF pattern called Biscuit from Tamanegi Kobo, aContinue Reading →

KCWC 2011: Red jacket and silver T-shirt

KCWC 2011: Red jacket and silver T-shirt

More KCWC 2011 projects! This red jacket is made with parachute fabric and black jersey. I found the parachute in the tiny fabric store near my house, it was very cheap and I still got more than 1 m left. The black jersey is recycled from adult T-shirt. The pattern is called Nectarine, bought as PDFContinue Reading →

KCWC 2011: Boy’s undies from recycled T-shirts

KCWC 2011: Boy’s undies from recycled T-shirts

It’s kids clothes week spring 2011! I’m starting it by refashioning Sidra’s T-shirts into undies. Those shirts are still in good condition but all of them have become too small now. It is something that you always encounter when you have kids. I copied one of Sidra’s undies to make the base pattern. Then IContinue Reading →

Men’s shirt: Finally!

Men’s shirt: Finally!

Earlier this year, I made a resolution to learn not to rush when working on my projects. Apparently I took the resolution too far because it took me more than a month to finish my husband’s shirt! I guess the reason why I always rush my projects was because I need to finish them beforeContinue Reading →
