Elementary graduation suit: in progress

Elementary graduation suit: in progress

  Sidra is graduating from elementary school this week! It seemed that not a long time ago he was entering first grade. Time flies so fast. It seems that not a long time ago I made him an entrance ceremony suit. I asked Sidra to pick the color of the suit he’s going to wear…

Culottes and tops

Culottes and tops

  I haven’t sewed for quite a while because it was too cold so I’m happy that it is now getting warmer everyday! This cropped top is part of Burdastyle February Flagship kit that contains about 40 patterns. I printed the pattern at 92% as I usually do for Burdastyle patterns, not realizing that it is already…

Denim repairs

Denim repairs

Apparently not much sewing done in the past couple of weeks. I guess I’d rather stay under the kotatsu than stand in front of my sewing machine feeling cold. I managed to finish a small mending project though. Sometime ago I posted about repairing the pocket lining on my husband’d jeans. The jeans had since started showing holes on the crotch…

Soft bra set – Merckwaerdigh BHS10

Soft bra set – Merckwaerdigh BHS10

My first sewing in 2015! Actually I didn’t really plan to make this set. I was tidying up my lingerie supply stash to see what I have when I found some leftover fabric. I made the peach and grey lingerie set in 2011, the bra is not worn anymore as the size turned out to be not…

Sewing in 2014

Happy New Year! The three of us caught influenza just a few days before new year so we didn’t do anything special this year. We are better now and hopefully next week we can go out and enjoy the holiday. Except for my husband who has to go back to work. Boo! Anyway, here’s a compilation…

Fuwawa’s T-shirts

Fuwawa’s T-shirts

The good thing about having a dog is that you can use all your leftovers to make them some T-shirts. Unless you have a big dog of course…. Fuwawa is a Chinese Crested Powder Puff and although her coat is long, it is also quite thin so she gets cold easily. Wearing clothes is a necessity for her, especially…

Linden sweatshirt

Linden sweatshirt

It is getting colder here in Tokyo that I can’t think of sewing anything else but sweater! So I’m very happy to see that the newest pattern from Grainline studio is a sweatshirt pattern. You must have seen several versions of this Linden sweatshirt popping up around the sewing blogs. I can see why so many people are…

Wool coat

Wool coat

First of all, I want to say thank you for all the sweet wishes on my birthday post! I feel so happy! You might have seen this coat in that particular post. I have just finished it a day before my birthday. It has been a while since I made a winter coat, the previous one was this…

Men’s cargo pants: Failed!

Men’s cargo pants: Failed!

I had been spending several days making a pair of cargo pants for my husband. I cut the fabric and happily went sewing all those pockets and flaps. And when he tried them on, the waist is too small! Of course there is noone to blame but myself for not making muslin first or even fit…

Military jacket

Military jacket

I was just heading out of the fabric store in Shinjuku after finished shopping when a woman entered. Suddenly my attention got caught on the military jacket that she wore. I was never too interested in military jackets before. It seems like everyone is wearing them, at least here in Tokyo. So I was curious on why this woman’s jacket was…
