I like sewing, and I picked it up again recently. Liessa got the brilliant idea to do a sewing course (Dutch), and after that, I really got the virus back.
I’m half way done with a denim dress, only I killed the zipper accidently, so now I have to buy a new one and sew that in (again), after which I think it’s about two hours of work…
I finished a hot pink (non shiny) version of this shirt, and I’m making that one again for my father’s girlfriend in a lovely greenish blue with flowers on it. The flowers are not printed, but sewn on with an extra layer of fabric, so it’s a bit raised.
Furthermore, today I drew patterns for a skirt, trousers and a jacket. (Sorry, no pics of that, I *could* scan the magazine and put the pics online, but I won’t, because I’m lazy :-) )
I’m going to make the jacket twice, once in a silk (with matching skirt) and once in Denim (with matching pants), hopefully I can finish the jacket and pants before my holiday is over, because it would be cool to be able to wear something home made to work when I get back :-)
After those are finished, I’ll be making a skirted suit (perhaps with a slightly longer skirt) and four more dresses, this one in white, with see-through heart fabric over the skirt and in a lovely shimmering pink-purple-grey-ish fabric with a pink and a grey overskirt.
This one I’ll do in a cherry fabric (smaller cherries and more of them than in the picture) and in a black fabric with skulls to compensate for the sweetness of the cherries…
Hopefully we’ll get a good summer, otherwise I’ll have to go to the southern hemisphere for winter, just to be able to wear all of it :-)
