1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 casual clothes on: January 28, 2010 07:39:17 AM
Here are my two new pieces. The first one makes me think about Star Wars, I don't know why. It was pretty easy to sew and I like it very much. The fabric is a very heavy and beautifull knit. The pattern is New Look 6729


The second one is a vest from Burda easy fashion winter 09 issue. I really like the shape but it was a little bit difficult to make. However I like it and I wear it often.

Enjoy! or not...
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A little bit of (old) french fashion spirit on: November 28, 2009 02:02:51 AM
I'm not really fond of the new today tendencies of french fashion, so I decided to make the contrary:
the first dress is from BWOF october's issue. Iwould make a very casual version but it turned like an old version of the Dior dress in the fifties. The fabric is a thin natural wool a little bit see through (is it the right word?) so I had to sew a lining.

In the second pictures the marks hasn't been off yet.

The second garment is a pencil skirt of the 2008 Burda Easy fashion winter issue. I also made the removable bow and I think it's very stylish.


You can see more technic details on my blog!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pretty in pink (a skirt, a short and a coat) with heavy pictures on: August 28, 2009 02:35:44 AM
The truth is that I was too tired to change the thread on my serger (by the way, I'm in love with my new serger).

First I made this skirt with a remant of jersey. The pattern is from Burda (june 07) and it's really easy to sew and very comfy.


The second is from a Lutterloh book of the seventies and I really like this method, the result is very good. Here is the front:
and the back:

The last but not least, is from an old Patrones. The pattern is an Anna Molinari (italian haute-couture) and I really love the result. It was difficult to do but it worth it.


4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 3 new stuff for my summer suitcase on: August 05, 2009 10:39:48 PM
I had my new surger (and I'm in love with it)  a month ago, and before going in the south of France I sewed a lot!!!

First I made this dress from Mccall 5512. It was very easy and Ilove everything about it, the shape, the comfort.
The fabric is a very soft jersey I bought last year:


The second one is a present for my mother, it is a Butterick pattern (I really love Butterick patterns, there really fit well). The fabric is a very thin jersey with little pink flowers.


The last one is a blouse I made for back-to-school. It 's a Paul et Joe (a very trendy trademark in France) pattern fron a Patrones of fall 2006. I like the fit but it's a little bit tricky to take off because it is a little bit tight.
The fabric is a polyester veil I bought in a little shop of Paris who sells nice fabric for very cheap price  (1.5 dollars a yard).

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I don't know if I love it or not on: August 05, 2009 10:20:23 PM
This is a very fast knit but I don't succeed to decide if I love it or not.
The pattern is from Phildar 346 (I guess it's summer 2004) and the yarn is Paper Phil, a strange yarn very light with a rustic look.
What do you think about?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / An aloha tee and a so romantic blouse on: July 10, 2009 11:26:25 AM
I had a love at firts sight with the pattern of the first piece of clothing.It's a blouse from the june issue of Burda. Iused some lightweight coton fabric and I just love it, it was so easy to sew!



I made the second with a stretch fabric. The pattern is from Simplicity and it is a very casual piece of clothing that I will sew in a lot of colours.


Enjoy! Or not...
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / casual clothing: two new pieces on: June 23, 2009 01:24:54 PM
After a long absence of my sewing Mojo's, I'm coming back with 2 pieces of clothing very easy to wear.

-the first is a trousers from a Lutterloh's book of 1974 and it turned exactly how I was dreaming of. I wear it all the time, it is so comfy!



-the second one is a top of New Look. I had some problems with this because the size on the pattern wasn't good. The top was huge!
Here the result after the big battle:


Enjoy! Or not...
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Very chic clothes on: April 17, 2009 10:59:27 AM
Here are two clothes I made recently/
The top is from a 2006 Burda easy fashion. The fabric is a remant of blach stretch satin. I didn't make big changes, I just removed the piece between the two pieces of the front. This pattern is a real obsession for me, I've already made it four times. Here it is:


The dress is from the october's issue of Patrones. For this dress I made some changes. It was too short, so I cut the skirt with a 10 cm extra, I didn't make pockets, because I think the dress is too classy for this, and I reduce the waist of 5 cm. I really like the drapey style of the bust.


Enjoy! Or not...
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Tweety sweater on: March 29, 2009 01:39:25 AM
Here's my new UFO. The pattern is from Phildar and the yarn too. It is Beaugency and it's delicious to knit, very soft, a real pleasure for the fingers. I think the sweater is a success, but, it doesn't fit to my body shape. I think I have a strange look in it because it is too heavy. Here is the beast:
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Butterick 5130: Shirred Dress Pattern: I'm (an old) Juliette on: March 03, 2009 10:27:04 AM
Ilove Butterick! The fit is right, the pattern are well explained and easy to sew.
Here is a dress from the 5130 dresses pattern, I feel like Juliette inside, even if I have the double of this lady Capulet's age.

But I shorten the dress after the photo-shoot, now it's a very cute top and I really love it. Here's the photo, ignore my pseudo-artistic delirium:
