Sonnenschein

Outside the sun is shining and despite the freezing temperatures I’m very motivated to knit my spring top. Although I had to frog most of it last weekend, because I had made a stupid mistake at the beginning. I’m learning the hard way again. But each time ripping out is hurting a bit less. 😉 Today I’m almost as far as I have been last …

Fortschritt

Last weekend I finally did cut the dress and now I’m ready to sew. Am I the only one that doesn’t likes the cutting the project? Ok, I think in my case this is very much due to not having a proper table to cut on. I have to use the floor and that is much to close to sport for my liking. And it …

Lingerie

So, what am I to do with this lace? It’s just sooo tempting. At this moment I’m torn between a panty, knickers, a camisole or a full slip. Unfortunately I only allowed myself to buy about 1m as it was pure impulse buying. So I will have to chose wisely. I have patterns for all of these so this won’t make a decision any easier. …

Licht!

Finally the sun has more power and it’s getting noticeably lighter – even if it isn’t making it through the clouds. So my mood and my motivation to sew have been getting better by the day, too. I picked up the dress muslin again and I managed to make it into a wearable version for me by adding two waist darts in the front piece and widening the …

Me?

This week Zoe announced the Me-made-march 11. You can sign up at her blog. The big question here is: Am I going to participate myself? After doing the Self-Stitched-September last year I had lost a bit of my sewing mojo due to realising that my wardrobe was full of stuff I really liked and made myself. This time I’m hoping it’s going to fuel my sewing …

Flip Top Update

I just wanted to add here, too, that I added a M size for female hands to the Slip Stitch Flip Tops pattern. Anyone teased? Nur die kurze Info, dass das Slip Stitch Flip Top Strickmuster jetzt auch eine M Größe (passend für weibliche Hände) enthält. Leider allerdings immer noch nicht in deutscher Übersetzung… Konnte ich damit Interesse wecken?

An die Nadeln, fertig, los!

The yarn shop just around the corner is open again (yay!) and so I paid a visit last week. After being even allowed to dig into boxes of yarn (the cotton hadn’t been bought out properly then) I went away with some beautiful deep red cotton yarn and matching off-white skeins. I plan to make a top for spring. I am already putting together my …

Slip Stitch Flip Tops

The pattern for the Slip Stitch Flip Tops is finally finished and published on ravelry. Yesterday I made a diagramm to clearify the attachment of the flip tops and after I included it, the pattern was as good as it could get. It’s taken me around two months from idea and sketch to finished pattern… so here come the specifications: Size: for male hands of …

Da bin ich wieder.

The last week has been busier than I thought… at least I finished the FBA on my dress pattern and even got the muslin together. And I’m so happy I did one! The A-line shape is (like I already feared) not made for me. The upper fit was ok but there was a big bag of air in the area of my stomach. (What did …
