I finally won my fight with the scanner and got presentable digital versions of my black and white film I shot back in January. Here are those I like best: Read the rest of this entry
I dont know if its news-worthy anywhere outside of Berlin, Germany, but did you hear we have an measles-epidemic in Berlin? Because most people do not get vaccinated anymore it seems. I am vaccinated so I am pretty relaxed and mostly see the fun in a city in panic. But it really is worth paying attention to all the people moving their scarf up to cover their face as soon as they enter the underground train, or those others who dig into their pockets, to find a tissue to cover their hand before they touch anything, and I am sure its not that they suffer from OCD. Well anyhow, it keeps my train rides funny at the moment, which I need since they repair the tracks on my normal route and my alternative takes me 1.5 hours one way instead of just 1 hour.
I placed all lining pattern pieces on the lining, minding the grain line.
the back parts get cut in fold. I added 2cm to each pattern, 4cm in total when de-folded, to do a pleat in the centre back which will make moving in the jacket a lot easier, and the lining less likely to rip at the centre back Read the rest of this entry
I finally made some progress on the dress (part1). Its just a few pictures, but I thought I would show you nonetheless.
the fabric is very slippery, so I used weights, to keep it in the right place
and lots of pins
to keep the pattern pieces in place
the collar I need twice, and I cut out all other pattern pieces, besides the skirt parts which need to be made into a plisse and at the moment I do not have enough money for it, so I will do that later and finish the upper dress first ;)
well I hope this was helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions!
keep sewing and smiling
I remembered I started a post series about how I organize my sewing supplies a while ago, but could not remember why I stopped. So I thought I might just start again and hope you are still interested in it.
Here is how I keep my threads organized:
This shelf is mostly used to keep all my different kinds of thread in order. Read the rest of this entry
so guess what? When I just beat my first cold there was a second one waiting for me around the corner, knocking me down and keeping me in bed for last week. :( I hope my sewing machines weren’t missing me to bad. Anyhow thats why there haven’t been any of the promised tutorials uploaded. I am hoping for the best and will try again. The new burda came to stores last wednesday, but I only found one pattern I might consider sewing. So I thought I still have 2 burda-projects to finish and I will do that first and this month pattern will be up for the vote together with patterns I find in next months issue.
next I pinned the corners of the pocket and pocket-cover together and sewed
then I placed the pocket on the outside-bag
tested the size Read the rest of this entry
