how to make dungarees: cutting and zipper


its the last week before open studios weekend and I am getting crazy… first for all the things I still need to prepare and secondly for all the possible outcomes my mind can think of: maybe there will be lots of intersted people… maybe nobody will come… and so on, anyhow here are the next steps for the dungarees:

DSCF5258 DSCF5259I cut them of a velvety corduroy, so I had to cut all parts in the same direction, the flap part twice in fold

DSCF5260before I sewed any other seams I put the invisible zipper in the left side seam, so I took the left front part and back part and put them next to each other at the side-seam

DSCF5261 DSCF5264now I pinned the open zipper folded over on one part, can you see the difference between both pictures? I remembered to overedge/serge the open edges before sewing the zipper in:) Read the rest of this entry

dungarees almost finished…?


my dungarees are only missing the last 2 buttons, if I base it on the drawing, but I am not sure, maybe its a little plain? and I dont know if it is just me, but I feel waist high pants always emphasize that my length from waist to behind is longer then normal… or my waist is located to high or whatever is the best way to call it.

DSCF5334 DSCF5335 DSCF5336 DSCF5337 DSCF5338

I have this brown ribbon and I thought maybe I could make the pants less plain and also the length above my behind a little shorter, so I copied the drawing (only black and white) and drew on some possible placings for the ribbon.


what do you think? I really would appreciate your opinion!

jacquard skirt how to


so almost all my things are packed into boxes but I will be moving on friday… I guess I miscalculated the time quite a bit. What am I supposed to do in an empty apartment surrounded by boxes and furniture in parts?

Anyhow this are the steps how I made my jacquard skirt (which is also already packed, because I thought pants would be better for packing and such, now I could wear it anyhow since I wont be packing all days;) ) Read the rest of this entry
