Wedding post #3- The family.

Pattern: Dahlia dress from Colette Patterns & Centaurée dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Floral navy blue and purple viscose & Floral silky satin I don’t think I would have made my wedding happen without these two strong and independent women in my life. Even though we snap at each other and don’t always agree on everything, we always stick up for one another. I can always count on them to be there for me whenever I need it. So […]


Remy

My first outwear!

Name: Remy (from Ratatouille) Pattern: Pavot jacket (discontinued) from Deer and Doe Fabric: Jacquard brocade fabric from Stoff & Stil As you might know, this pattern is no longer for sale. When Deer and Doe redesigned their patterns and website, they decided to not sell the Pavot jacket anymore. They did promise to give out another jacket pattern soon, and they did. The Luzerne coat is amazing and I’ve made two of them already! Soon to come. I tried to find […]


MCBN: Last chance to show those bare legs.

Name: Kevin (from Up) Pattern: B6453 from Butterick by Gertie Fabric: Michael Miller flock fabric from Minerva Crafts I love this dress, but most likely because of the beautiful birds that are printed on the fabric. It really reminded me of the bird Kevin from the movie Up, with its colors and the motive. I’m so glad I made this dress. Now my Russell dress has his friend! CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST I think the colours of […]

Russell

Boyscouts honor.

Name: Russell (from Up) Pattern: B6453 from Butterick by Gertie Fabric: Floral cotton from Stoff & Stil A wilderness explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole! I made this dress with the pencil skirt as a muslin actually, but it turned out great! I love it when a muslin turns out to be wearable muslins. The reason for making this muslin is because I’m making this dress for my next blog post over […]


Officer Hopps ready for duty!

Name: Judy Hopps aka officer Hopps (Zootopia) Pattern: Zephyr dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Grey floral sweatshirt knit from Stoff & Stil Officer Hopps is actually off duty today and is all dressed up! Last year when the pattern came out I made my Tinker Bell dress. So I thought it was about time to add another wonderful knit dress to my wardrobe. I like the simplicity of the pattern. Even though it is a knit dress, Deer and […]

Wedding post #2 – The beginning.

I wanted to make a series of post from my wedding day that I so proudly planned myself. I know that wedding planning makes hubby gag, even though I minimize myself to talking to him about the wedding only if necessary, it was still too much. So after only a month of this, he only replied “Whatever you want, honey. Just give me the date and the bill.” even though he didn’t pay for it by himself. Fair enough, I’ll do […]


MCBN: Pain and panic duo

Name: Pain and Panic (from Hercules) Pattern: Ogden cami from True Bias Fabric: Floral print viscose challis and Johan Kaldor floral crepe Today I can finally tell you.

For my first post I needed something quick so I made my two first Ogden camis, they’re so amazing I’ve been using […]


Fairy friends.

Name: Vidia (from Tinker Bell) Pattern: Alix dress from By Hand London Fabric: Floral print microfiber from Minerva Crafts I’ve had this floral fabric for a while now, and if you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that I’ve been in a black floral fabric phase for the lighter spring and summer months. Weird, yes! I try to stay clear of polyester fabrics, but I hope you understand why I can’t resist this fabric. It is so beautiful! I also […]

Getting comfy in bodycon?

*Pattern testing Name: Jafar (from Aladdin) Pattern: Poppy top & dress from By Hand London Fabric: Premium Merino colour Marsala from the Fabric Store By Hand London has come out with another fantastic pattern, and I’ve been lucky enough to be pattern testing this one too. I tested this pattern way back in March so that’s why there’s still snow in the pictures. The Poppy dress/top is the first pattern from BHL to be sewn in a knit fabric. There is three […]
