...but, as always, I've been sewing even more than during my holidays :D

Here's what I've been up tp the last couple of weeks:

Two more versions of my favourite MacCall's M5819. Modifications: Long sleeves (in what kind of weather would you wear short-sleeved sweatshirts?), no pockets





A very cute green jacket; the pattern is from one of these lovely japanese sewing books



A ruffled spring top; you can find the awesome tutorial by Rae on Sew, mama, sew!



Thanks for looking!

Looks very nice! Especially like the sweaters and the sleeves of the top!

The sweaters don't look too difficult... could I do that whitout the pattern?
Could I make it in fleece?

to answer your question about short sleeved sweatshirts, when you live where I live and it's currently 15-18 degrees celcious when the sun is behind a cloud b/c it was snowing on saturday and the weather is a lunatic but in three weeks it will probably be thirty degrees and we better start working on our tans now so everyone is wearing short sleeve sweatshirts. XD

sometimes i wonder what it'd be like to live somewhere with normal weather... (sigh)

i love that green jacket, it's adorable. I wish i could pull off things like that.
