Green Greener almost Greenest Garment Combination

I’ve been thinking for a while what to make from this fabric. I had spotted the Closet Case Charlie caftan a while ago and wanted to use it for this pattern. Closet Case has some great designs. The Kalle shirt is a perfect example of a Closet Case pattern that I’ve used already twice in a hack. I decided to make a toile first. The fit wasn’t what I was looking for and I didn’t had any idea what I had to change for a better look. In the meantime I made this two-piece refashion combination and wrote a blogpost about plastic free sewing. One thing let to another and this two piece Green Greener almost Greenest Garment Combination is the result.

Burdastyle 2018-02 #128 3/4 Sleeve Blouse

This Burdastyle 2018-02 #128 3/4 Sleeve Blouse is made of a pattern from the Burda Plus Size collection. This pattern was also released in the February edition of the Burda Style magazine. I bought this magazine to make this blouse for my mother. My mother had asked me to make a relax fitted blouse out of striped fabric. Sadly enough my previous bought fabric had a higher shrinkage percentage then I expected. New fabric was found at A.Boeken in Amsterdam where I also bought the fabric to make the LMV Aspen poloshirt. This is a 100% cotton striped fabric.

Elle Puls ShirtBOX pattern

Elle Puls is a German independent pattern designer. I made a few of her patterns and also did some testing for her. Elle Puls also has designed some pattern for taller women. This is great news if you’re taller then average. The side seam/hem construction from the Tunika Elle was already used twice in a pattern hack. The first time for the Closet Case Kalle shirt and the second time for the refashion of the LMV Carrie jurk. This time I’me testing a pattern for her: the Elle Puls ShirtBOX pattern.

LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt

My husband is this time the subject of my sewing projects. I made for him a striped version of the LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt. The LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt is the third time that I’m using the LMV May/June2018 edition. It doesn’t happen often that I use a sewing magazine three times but this edition really had some great designs I could use. My LMV Malmö broek was worn at least once a week since I made it and also once in combination with the LMV Oslo blouse. A while ago I also made a poloshirt for my husband that he likes to wear. I decided not to use that pattern again but make this LMV version because my husband like the fit of his LMV Cliff hemd and LMV Bernie hemd.

LMV Carrie jurk meets Elle Puls Tunika Elle

We start at the begin. Last year I was one of the participants in the make a shirt dress challenge. I made my version of the LMV Carrie Jurk. And here comes my confession: I only wore this dress twice. The first time was for the photo shoot and the second time to a birthday party. This LMV Carrie jurk wasn’t my dress just like many other dresses. This year the  Sew Together For Summer dress challenge is back with a wrap dress. I was tempted but decided to be wise and let this challenge pass. Instead I decided to do something with my LMV Carrie jurk. A blouse was the best option and came up with the LMV Carrie jurk meets Elle Puls Tunika Elle idea.

LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version

This LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version also comes from the LMV May/June 2018-edition. The Top is named after another Scandinavian city namely the capitol city of Norway. The LMV Oslo Blouse is a cropped Top with long sleeves. LMV made in a denim version. The same fabric is also used for the LMV Malmö broek. You end up with a beautiful one colour two piece outfit. The pictures shows a pretty looking outfit but for my taste it was to much denim. I prefer a two colour outfit and decided to use a large piece of leftover fabric.

This odd shaped piece was leftover after making the DPStudio Le002 Pull. It would take me some time but I had the feeling it was doable to make the LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version  out of the leftover fabric.

Easy Sewing Homemade Basic T-shirt dress 

Our youngest daughter and I went a while ago to Holland Stoffenhuis in Leiden. I was looking for lining for my Fashion Style blazer. They hadn’t the lining I was looking for but our daughter found a coupon that was 1.40 meter long that she liked. She asked me if I could make a Summer  Homemade basic T-shirt dress out of it with an exposed zipper.  She has a few of this dress types in het wardrobe that she loves to wear.  Who can refuse such a request? Not me so after paying the coupon it was in her bag.

Made to measure T-shirt for my mother

After making the Easy to Sew Vogue 9080 blouse this time a T-shirt for my mother. This fabrics is also bought while I visited the Stoffenspektakel in February. This time I carefully measured the sizes of my mother after the failure that I had with the Vogue blouse. I had to do some pattern alterations like a rounded back alterations. I decided to draft a pattern instead of doing the alterations on a commercial sewing pattern. It would probably take the same amount of time.

Homemade baby boy outfit size 50

I’m a member of two Facebook groups who sew for men and boys. One is an English group called ‘Sewing Blue’ and the other one is Dutch called ‘Naaien voor Heren’. When I decided about four years ago to make all my own clothes I didn’t had the intention to sew for my husband as well. My husband is tall and has always difficulties to find T-shirts and dress shirts that are long enough. On one fine day I offered to sew a few white T-shirts for him and one thing let to another. The English group has a monthly blog tour and I decided to participate in the Sewing Blue Blog Tour ‘Boys in Summer’ theme. I decided to make something for Stitching Creatief voor Babyspulletjes and this Homemade baby boy outfit size 50 with a maritime look is the result.
