Skirts, skirts, skirts for a little girl

A co-worker has a cute little 6 year old daughter who ❤ ❤ ❤ skirts.

Good luck for her I have a lot of fabric for children 😀

So I startet to sew skirts for her. It doesnt need this much time like it does with my stuff. And its the first time I have sewn something for a child.

Its very funny but you can see which skirt I made first. The seam for the pockets is way to far from the edge

Skirt 1

the 2nd skirt. I added a white velvet ribbon

Skirt 2a

This skirt needed more time to sew than all skirts I did so far. I wanted the pockets perfect with the fabric pattern and I did it 🙂

Skirt 2b

The next  one 🙂

Skirt 3a

and skirt number 4. This skirt is the best I did so far

Skirt 4a

Here you can see Miss M. with her new skirts ❤

Skirt 1 + 2

I just “designed” the next skirt on paper. Now I have to sew it.Maybe this weekend I will have the time to do it.

This old-fashioned looking brooch I found on the internet and wanted it for my dress 🙂

Yes I know I should have ironed my dress before doing the photos but I just wanted to save time 😀

My new sewn dresses with matching chucks

Didnt knew it has been this long since my last post. I have been very busy.

I’m still going every saturday to my sewing course and I still love it sooooo much

Here a few photos of my last projects. I made the photos with matching chucks because I have a lot of them and I really like to wear them ❤ ❤ ❤

I dont know exactly how many chucks I have – over 30 for sure. My most important colors  I have in high and low hihi

My last project is a jacket I made last weekend. It looks soooo cool. The jersey inside is nautical as are the colors. My chucks too hehehe

But see for yourself

I made dresses for me too. ME with dresses !!!! Usually I wear jeans, shorts, but never dresses. But I found a pattern I really liked. Can you believe I searched over 2 months for the fabric? At the beginning I didnt knew what fabric I wanted, but whatever fabric I have seen I didnt liked for my dress.

But 2 months ago I went to a fabric market and at the end of the day I found it !!!! And I knew THIS fabric would be the first dress for me since ages LOL

Isnt this fabric cute ???? The buttons has been Brigid’s idea. Old fashion style hehehe

I liked my first dress this much that I made the next one with the same pattern.

I bought a bodice few months ago at ebay. I planned to wear it this summer. But it has been a little to short.

But when my first dress has been done, I have seen that my bodice has been only a few inches longer then the upper part of my dress. I decided to use it for my next dress.

I shorten the bodice, changed the buttons and put the skirt on it. Take a look how perfect my seam looks like ❤ The ribbon is only decoration. But I liked how it looked like with this dress.

As you can see the fabric ist nautical – again hehehe. See the cute buttons on the bodice? Found them on the internet.

Both dresses are the same pattern but because of the bodice I had to change the skirt.  This dress the skirt gets closed with buttons.

Over the last months I made a lot of shirts. But this two shirts are my favorites.

This fabric is a special one: one side is red with white stripes, the other side is blue with white stripes. The fabric is thin enough to wear it from spring to fall. I made one shirt with each color.

New fabric for spring and Easter – couldnt stop buying it

The new fabric collection for spring and Easter is out.

I couldnt resist. The new fabrics are too cute 🙂

This fabrics are for decoration at home. I will make baskets, tableclothes and stuffed animals.

I know I bought to much, but hey, I can make gifts for family and friends 🙂

Fabric 1 Fabric 2

I also got new nautical fabric

Fabric 3

do you see the one with the stripes? One side is blue, the other side is red. This fabric is a little thicker. I;m not sure will I sew 2 shorts or one 5 pocket jeans?

The 2 fabrics on the left will get blouses, the dark blue is jersey and will get a nice tee

The nautical fabrics are from my fabric store where I’m learning to sew. Every saturday I tell myself not to buy a new fabric. But when I see the new ones I had to have them hehe
