JLH Gable Top two all weather versions

Although it’s more than a month Autumn in the Northern hemisphere we still had days with sunshine and high temperatures but also dark days with clouds and rain. My just made two all weather wear Gable Tops are reflecting exactly both weather conditions.
I used an olive green sweater fabric for the short sleeved version and a dark grey T-shirt fabric for a long sleeved version. I also wanted to use my overlocker as much as possible for both makes.

Elastic Tie Sweater from Assembly Line

Assembly Line is a new Swedish Indie pattern designer. Their designs have that famous stylish Scandinavian and minimalistic look. This Elastic Tie Sweater is a perfect example of this type of design. The pleated col is held together with an elastic cord. These pleats have the function of darts. Fabric suggestions for this Elastic Tie Sweater: jeans, wool en canvas. I bought this pattern at Stik&Stof. This shop just started selling a few Assembly Line pattern and lucky for me the Elastic Tie Sweater is one of them.

Patty Doo Geo-Bag denim version

In the meantime it is almost halfway October. Time to start making homemode gifts for the coming holidays. I set the Patty Doo Geo-Bag on my ‘sewing ideas for Sinterklaas and Christmas list’ as soon as this pattern was alive. This Patty Doo Geo-Bag is such a genius pattern. You fold an odd shaped piece of fabric, stitch a seam, fold again and like matching it begins to look like a bag. This pattern comes in two sizes. A big size to make a toiletry bag and a smaller version for a cosmetics bag. I made my version of a discarded jeans and dress shirt.

Sew Magazine Clementine Cat well-dressed

I’ve a few new sewing projects but also some sewing techniques on a ‘I want to make/do list’. So now and then I sew soft toys like a sloth, pig, fox and a rag doll.
Until now all these soft toys weren’t able to move their arms or legs. So on my sewing techniques list was exploring how this can be done. 
A while ago I saw this Sew Magazine Clementine Cat. This cat has visible buttons joints for arms and legs. Perfect item for my technique project.

Chique Homemade basic Autumn dress

Youngest daughter and I went again to Holland Stoffenhuis in Leiden. I had a Elle Puls pattern that needed to be tested and had to buy suitable fabric. We always take a look in the remnant bin and youngest daughter found a piece of fabric with wybert pattern in ecru, black and gold. She’s very pleased with her Homemade basic T-shirt dress and asked me if the piece of fabric was enough to make another one. Lucky for her it was just enough. So now we had both a suitable fabric and after paying we went back home.

Style Arc Blaire Shirt T-shirt version

It isn’t easy to say goodbye to beautiful Summer days. Days without caring about raincoats, warm sweaters and shawls. The weather still is nice and a T-shirt still can be worn although a cardigan is sometimes needed. Now for my second ‘Sew Long Summer 2018’ blogtour contribution I decided to transform a blouse pattern into a T-shirt. Let’s go to my Style Arc Blaire Shirt T-shirt version

Zonen09 Theo overhemd poloshirt version

After a long and sometimes hot summer Autumn is peeping around the corner. Now the Summer is coming to an end in the northern hemisphere and days are slowly getting shorter so evening and nights are slowly getting longer. Sometimes September but also October can bring some nice, warm days. So I made a Zonen09 Theo overhemd poloshirt version for the ‘Sew Long Summer 2018’ Blog Tour.

Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8

This Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8 is for my mother. Recently Style Arc had a 25% discount on their patterns. The Blaire Shirt had caught my eye and with 25% discount it was a very good deal. When you order a Style Arc patterns you get three sizes. I wanted size 4 so with my order size 6 and 8 were included. I want to use this pattern for the Let’s Sti(c)k Together September theme but need to work out some more details. In the meantime I started testing a new Elle Puls pattern. You can see this Thursday what it will be. A generous piece of the fabric was left after testing and was just enough to make a Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8 for my mother.
