RDC Manteau Gerard tussenjas uitvoering

Deze RDC Manteau Gerard tussenjas uitvoering is gemaakt naar aanleiding van een Sew Challenge uitdaging. Ik gaf het bij de Crafty Kooka luiaard al aan dat de volgende PDF-patroon van de ‘plank’ was gehaald. Blogrevolution en ik vormen voor deze uitdaging een koppel. Zij gaf mij de volgende drie criteria:
– een stof uit je kast
– een nog niet gebruikt patroon voor een jas
– verwerk een rits

RDC Manteau Gerard tussenjas uitvoering

Het RDC Manteau Gerard patroon was één van mijn cadeautjes tijdens Sinterklaas 2015. De stof lag nog langer op de plank. Deze stof heb ik ooit gekocht om er een zogenaamde tussenjas van te maken. Hierdoor waren de eerste twee criteria alvast ingevuld.
Een tussenjas is een prima oplossing voor het grillige Nederlandse weer tijdens de lente en herfst. Dit jastype is niet zo dik gevoerd als de winterjas maar de stof is dikker dan die van een regenjas.

RDC Manteau Gerard Spring coat version

This RDC Manteau Gerard Spring coat version is also made for a sewing challenge. You could read it in my Crafty Kooka sloth blogpost that the next make would also be made of a PDF-pattern from my stash. Blogrevolution and I are a duo for this challenge. She gave me the following three criteria:
– use a fabric from your stash
– a never used coat pattern
– use a zipper

RDC Manteau Gerard Spring coat version

The RDC Manteau Gerard pattern was a Sinterklaas 2015 gift. This wollen fabric was bought about four years ago. I bought this fabric to make a Spring coat. By choosing both two criteria were already filled in.
A Spring coat is perfect solution for the erratic Dutch weather during the Spring and Autumn. The Spring coat has a light weighted lining and can be made of a light weighted wollen fabric.

Autumn 2017 sewing plans

You can see in another todays bog post my version of the Mondsee scarf. September 1th is the beginning of the meteorological Autumn. There’s a gap of three weeks between the meteorological Autumn and the astronomical Autumn. At the beginning of this week we still had Summer weather. Lots of sunshine and high temperatures. But the weather changed dramatically on Wednesday. It was raining almost the whole day and temperatures dropped. The next day was also grey and cold. It felt like we had a taste of Autumn already. I decided to start thinking about clothes to make for the upcoming astronomical Autumn while wearing my Mondsee scraf. I now share some of my Autumn 2017 sewing plans.

Autumn 2017 sewing plans – my patterns

I decided to take a look at patterns I all ready have due to my ‘Use What You Have’ mission. I’ve found at least two patterns I want to use. This jeans from a recent KNIPmode magazine and the RDC Gerard manteau. I’m still looking in my pattern stash for sewing patterns suitable for a cardigan, a sweater and a pattern to knit another scarf.

Sewing Two RDC Ludivine robes

Sewing Two RDC Ludivine robes – the dresses

Sewing Two RDC Ludivine robes is my contribution for the the Day and Night Dress Challenge blog tour run by Elizabeth. I decided to use the LBD as the starting point of my pattern choice. A LBD is a stylish and timeless dress design that can be worn on my occasions. A well chosen simple designed dress combined with only one jewellery is the key to have a fabulous outfit. I decided to use the RDC Ludivine robe pattern for this challenge because this pattern has a strong stylish and timeless design. Both dresses have size 38 for the bust and size 36 for the hips.

RDC Ludivine dress pattern

RDC Ludivine dress pattern – the day and night dress challenge

I decided to use the RDC Ludivine dress pattern for both versions of the day and night dress challenge run by Elizabeth. The pattern is easy to sew together and the clever use of the bust dart in the side front panel gives the dress a crisp and neat finish. I used the pattern as it is for the day dress and for my night LBD look I made fitting changes in the side seams but also in the seams of the center front panel, center back panel and side front panels. The day dress version is made of sweater fabric and the LBD version of Punte di Roma.
