Red & Black Dress

It's my first time using jersey for this technique. I have used courtelle jersey combined with black sport stretch, but I think it worked out well.
As basic pattern I have used BurdaStyle pattern #103 01/2016  but I've made my own twist with the pattern as you can see on the pics :) 
I have made another dress of this pattern before, but then it's a two pcs-set with a dress and a long-sleeve top.

Sabina Dress

  Photo print is so pretty! 
  This is an excellent fabric for an easy dress.           
I had to find a pattern which could show the photo print.
This is a pattern I would like to try for a long time from Sabina 02/2013. 
It's gathered at the neck, both in front and back.
The fabric is cotton satin and I have used micro satin for the lining.

Orange dress

I wanted so badly to try this McCall pattern!
Since I didn't have it, I made my own version,
and I'm very happy with it :)

I have combined three different fabric;

  • viscose jersey as main fabric
  • bright orange sport stretch underneath the lace
  • lace stretch fabric as diagonal borders and short sleeves. 


Jersey is nice sewing with, and it's comfy to wear.
Since the fabric is stretchy it's not necessary with a zipper.  
I had to neaten the lace to the sport stretch before sewing it together with the other pieces.

Boy's T-shirt and pants


This is a charming boy with new outfit! It's an easy T-shirt, but the fabric makes it special:-)            
The pants is made of sweatshirt fabric with side-pockets and two back-pockets.

Both patterns are from Ottobre 3/2017.

Jacket with zipper


White goes with everything, and a white jacket is perfect for hot summery days! :)

This is a great pattern from BurdaStyle 05/2008, and I like specially the feminine waist. The pocket flaps are just for decoration.
I have used medium woven cotton fabric, but it would be better with a bit of elastane.
I have made another Jacket with abstract print earlier.

Girl's Dress and Bonnet


A Happy little girl with her new dress :)
I found the pattern in an old Burda magazine for kids.
It's an easy pattern with square parts for the skirt.
The ties are connected with pleats in front.
I have combined cotton fabric with a transparent white fabric 
for the short sleeves, around the neck and for the ties.

For the bonnet I have used pique fabric with cotton as lining.
If you like, you can see a Bonnet I've made for her earlier.
This is a great pattern from BurdaStyle.

Striped Summer Dress

Stripes forever!
The opening back of this dress makes it more interesting and it's great for a summer party :)
 I have used courtelle jersey which has a bit more hold than viscose jersey.  
I like the gathering at the sides and the back.
