I love it, and I too thought of making myself a top with the collar I had seen on your daughters dress. You are so talented!

Wow, thank you all for your nice comments! It's been really hot the past few days and I've been wearing my romper all the time and totally recommend it!

I never would have thought that an octupus could be cute. But this absolutely is!

Hello everyone!

Wow, I haven't posted anything in ages! But I have been browsing Craftster and of coure I have been sewing. Here is my new favourite piece this summer: The Romper!

Pattern: Doryon from Burdastyle.com

Fabric: Black denim, with the wrong side of the demin for the yoke

I love how it turned out! In the summer, I usually keep wearing jeans, since my very "active" life (I constantly run around, ride my bike, and yes... dig in the garden) and skirts don't go together very well, and with this piece I can show my legs Smiley while being perfectly comfortable and safe from flying skirts...

Please excuse the poorly edited photos, but the originals made me look like a vampire!

Comments are very welcome and thanks for looking!

that's adorable! I love bottlecap pincuhions, but this one is my favourite by far!

No, I was surprised at how easy it was; before sewing the side seams you have to iron on bias-cut strips of interfacing (I used the store-bought ones, which are about 1 cm wide) and iron them on next to the stitching lines (on the garment side next to the seam allowances), then iron the allowances to the inside and stitch everything in place with a twin needle!

I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it in the new issue of Burda WOF! I immediately left the house to buy grey ribknit and sewed up this super-easy, super-comfy dress (only 2 pattern pieces!). The only thing I hadn't thought about that the money my parents had left me had been for food... not fabric! Thanks to my friends who invited me to eat at their place I didn't starve :)

...but I feel this dress was worth it!

I love the cutout on the back.

From the front it looks very plain and simple, but with the darts on the back it has quite a nice shape.
(and please ignore my awkward attemps at NOT looking stupid on a photo)

On my dressform:

I really recommend it to anyone, it's a pretty quick and easy, wearable dress!
Thanks for looking and I ❤ your comments :)

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I should have been studying... (pic-heavy) on: May 12, 2009 12:27:41 AM
...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!
