since I finished last week with the maxi skirt with pockets I start with the dungarees now. The how to will be up every monday.
I started with well fitting pants in a similar style then I was going for
I copied the front and back parts of the pant onto paper, detailed instructions on how I did that can be found here.
I wanted the pants to be up to the waist so I added some cm to the top Read the rest of this entry
here is how I made the pattern for the crazy print skirt:
sorry I am one day late with this! I totally forgot it was friday somehow, possibly because I had to work today:)
I know I kept you waiting with the wintercoat again, thanks to trying to finish up with all christmas gifts I wont manage it this weeks, and thanks to family visiting as well not next week. So I will keep waiting some more, but I have finished my pants and blouse I showed you here. So from now on on fridays I’ll upload the next steps of the pants and on monday or tuesday some steps of the blouse. So at least new things on the blog, I really wanna finish the coat, but thats why its christmas right? because you do something for friends and family well anyhow this are the first steps of my new favorite pants. I have this really well fitting white pants with a little stretch in the fabric. Luckily my brown striped fabric was stretchy, too. If your pants are stretchy and the used fabric isnt, you should add some more cm to the sides. Read the rest of this entry
so its a little embarrassing to admit, but I do like those 70s-german Schlager-movies. I own quite a few of them. besides those nice funny stories with songs I also like them for the costumes. Remember I am in a seventies phase? and movies from that era are the best source of how people really dressed ;), but I did buy those dvds before that phase…
Anyhow in one of those movies from ’71, named “Kinderarzt Dr. Fröhlich” the girl is wearing some nice skirts I liked. So I tried to copy them and this is my first. I really like it, even though I have to get used to the shortness, since I tried to make it really correct and even though I own short skirts, this feels a little shorter, but it looks good nonetheless and somehow it was ok to wear such short skirts in the 60s and 70s, so I will survive I guess… and make the next one (which I definitly will do) 5cm longer. ;) Read the rest of this entry
so the vote was a tie, between just showing how I change the pattern and doing that and also show how to change a simple dress pattern into something similar. Since I am nice today … :p I am doing both;) Read the rest of this entry
Thats a pretty long word.
Well so this is how I started with the pattern for the neck-holder and how it changed.
