...gave me a lot of time to sew! Here are the results:

Two versions of a very cute DIY-style pattern (McCalls M5819), one in lime green sweaternknit and one in a very very VERY cute velour fabric (I think that's what it's called in English), which I I'll probably only wear at home since it makes me look like I'm about ten years old :S

Two versions of the circle top from the book "one piece wearables" in my favourite colours for spring - light green and light purple:

(haha, please ignore the funny face!)

I really love that pattern, because it lives you a lot of room for creative ideas for necklines, hems, embroidery...
On the purple one I did a neckline facing with ricrac, added some decorative stitching to the sleeves and added an elastic empire waist for shaping.

(the colour is actually a lot more purple than on the photo)

The green one has short flutter sleeves and a ricrac-covered boatneck and ricrac on the bottom hem, and gave me the opportunity to try out my new ruffler foot (which I love)

And some lounge pants (because you can never have enough lounge pants) in black velour, from the book "Sew everything workshop" by Diana Rupp

Thank you for looking and comments are always very much appreciated!
