3. Dezember 2012 – Was wurde aus meinen Nähplänen?

Was wurde eigentlich aus meinen Frühlingsnähplänen? Es ist inzwischen Dezember und da wird es wirklich Zeit zu schauen, was aus meinen Plänen für die “warme” Saison dieses Jahr eigentlich geworden ist. It’s already december, so today I’m taking a look back at my sewing plans for the “warm” season of 2012. Let’s see what became of them. Punkt eins auf der Liste war ein Jeansrock aus …

Frühblüher

There is a new kid in town or there is a new addition to my fabric stash, to be more precise. The last time I visited my parents I brought an old skirt of mine back with me and turned it into fabric. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo before I washed it and took it apart, but it has been a simple long …

The dress is quickly coming together. Even though I finish every seam with bias tape. This has proven a very good decision. Not only because I really like the look but also becase the fabric is ravelling like hell while working with it. So I’m happy to have all the seam allowances closed nice and safe. Here is a little sneak peak inside: Das Kleid …

What I’m up to just now…

Binding my seam allowances in hot pink bias tape. 🙂 Can’t wait to finish the dress and finally wear it! Ich versäubere grad meine Nahtzugaben mit knallpinkem Schrägband. 🙂 Ich kann es kaum erwarten, dass das Kleid endlich fertig wird!

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 …

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 …

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 …

Wochenrückblick

The hat made some progress last week even though I had to rip out a couple of rounds because I miscalculated it a bit. And it’s about time, too, because winter made its comeback right at my front door. In der letzten Woche bin ich mit der Mütze ganz gut voran gekommen, auch wenn ich ein paar Runden auftrennen musste, weil ich mich ein kleines …

Wochenrückblick

Das Kleid ist fertig! 🙂 Ich habe es pünktlich gestern (am 30.) geschafft. Damit ist es mein fertig gestelltes Teil für August & ich konnte es gleich zum Geburtstags-Pick-Nick einer Freundin auch gleich ausführen. Das Wetter hat nämlich großartigerweise auch mitgespielt. Zum Frisbee- und Kubbspielen hatte erstmal die dunkelblaue Seite Premiere, die helle wird wohl noch etwas warten müssen. I finished my dress! 🙂 Right …
