1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Peplum and bows on: April 03, 2016 01:00:49 AM
Hi!

This is the last piece of clothing I've made to increase my wardrobe.  Cheesy

It's a top made out of a medium weight Ponte Roma.

For the front I decided to slice the pattern at the waist and then I added a belt made by pleating the fabric to make it look like small bows.





For the back I decided to make a cascade peplum.







And that's all.  Cheesy Thanks for reading!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gathered top on: February 09, 2016 05:25:04 AM
Hello!

This is my last top, I keep making things in stretch fabric, it's so comfy  Cheesy

The side seams are gathered, and stabilized with clear elastic.





I really think gathered tops give a 'slimmer look', do you agree?


I decided to gather a central panel of the sleeves too. It gives a nice touch, although it's hard to see on the dressform.



And that's all!. A huge hug from the Canary Islands, Spain
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Pompon Wreath on: November 30, 2015 11:02:17 AM
A few days ago, I finished my first Christmas Wreath.

It is made out of 2 spools of wool in different shades of green. I made lots of pompons with the wool and glued them over a piece of stiff cardboard.



To decorate the wreath I used dried flowers and some pine cones.  Cheesy



4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Tree made out of Tulle on: November 26, 2015 04:59:58 AM
Yesterday I finished my new pink Christmas tree.

It's made out of a roll of 25 yards of pink tulle and little pink pearls.

It's very easy to make, you only need to cut the tulle in different lengths and knot the stripes to a wooden stick.

Afterwars you can sew some pearls and that's really all of it.



5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / One shoulder top on: September 06, 2015 04:06:29 AM
Hi again!

A few weeks ago I had to attend a 'formalish' dinner and had nothing to wear. A dress was too much so I decided to make a top which I could dress up with a pencil skirt or wear it casually with a pair of jeans and nice shoes.


I'm always making things in stretch fabric because to me, they are the most comfortable pieces of clothing  Cheesy


I decided to add a batwing sleeve, it's really nice but in pictures you can't appreciate how it falls.


I decided to 'semi line' it. Once I wear it you can't see where the lining ends, but on the dressform, as it has a black background it's pretty noticeable.

I'm really happy how this one turned out Cheesy
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Owl on: August 02, 2015 07:28:16 AM
I just finished making this Owl.

I drafted the pattern and sewed it with leftover pieces of other projects.

It has pockets to store things in it





7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sweetheart neckline top on: June 25, 2015 05:30:34 AM
Hi!
Today I want to show you one of the tops I made a few months ago.

It's one of my favourites because it's very cute and girly. I made my own pattern and I think I will sew it again with different fabrics, I would love one with the yoke in lace.






Thanks for your time.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue Knit Top on: April 26, 2015 09:31:58 AM
Hi!

Since I started sewing, I've always loved knits. There is no need of putting darts, the fit is much easier, and the fabric is super comfortable.

Today I show you my last knit top, with pleated neckline and sleeves. Pattern is self-drafted, very easy to make:







Thanks for your time
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jacket on: April 26, 2015 09:20:40 AM
Hi!

Last week I finished sewing a Yellow Jacket, yes... Yellow! it looks better than it sounds.  Grin

The pattern is self-drafted, I think I'm getting the hang of drawing patterns and I really enjoy making them. Recently I ordered Patternmaking for fashion design, and I can't wait for it to arrive home.

This jacket has two side zippers (no pockets, I was afraid I would sew them wrong as I've never sewn pockets Roll Eyes), and has 16 pattern pieces.

Hope you like it as much as I do. Best wishes from the Canary Islands, Spain









10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Giraffe extra long on: April 26, 2015 09:02:26 AM
Hi!

Since I started sewing a few years ago, all I've done was sew clothes for myself.

Recently my brother told me some exciting news.. I'm going to be an Auntie, and I sure want to be the best one of all Cheesy

This is the first of many gifts for the little baby yet to be born, it's 117cm tall!



The pattern is self-drafted and very simple to sew.

Hope you like it. Best wishes from the Canary Islands, Spain.

Thanks for your time Kiss
