Vanellope Von Schweetz
Name: Vanellope Von Schweetz (from Wreck-It-Ralph) Pattern: Ginger jeans from Closet Case Files Fabric: Brushed stretch twill from Stoff & Stil [out of stock] Let me start with giving you the timeline . Heather Lou’s pattern debut was on October 23rd 2014, yes 2014! I purchased the pattern on November 9th fairly confident that I would make myself a pair of trousers in the near future. That winter and the following year I was only wearing dresses and some skirts […]

My trousers journey so far.


Edna Mode

Baloo
Name: Baloo (from The Jungle Book) Pattern: Winslow Culottes from Helen’s Closet Fabric: Duvet cover from Fretex (second hand store) When I discovered Helen’s closet she was at the last stage of announcing her first cloths sewing pattern ever. I’ve seen only beautiful versions of these culottes. I have never made culottes myself at the time and thought it was a genius idea. I mean, pants that is masked as skirts? Mind blown. I purchased the pattern when it came […]

I never knew I could love culottes that much!


Another Jedediah for Hubby

Bagheera

They called it a dream mission. I choose a pattern and fabric I wanted from their collection, and they sent me a package containing the pattern, fabric and other sewing supplies I need to sew it up. As you may know, I don’t wear pant. […]

Dory
Name: Dory jumpsuit Pattern: Holly Jumpsuit from By Hand London Fabric: Chambrey So this is one of my latest projects. The Holly Jumpsuite. I usually only make dresses and skirt, because I really don’t, Don’t, DON’T like pants. Pants has never fitted me really well, So I was very skeptical when the gals from By Hand London came out with this pattern, but I really love the bodice on the version 1 of the pattern, so why not. And it’s By […]

Behold the Holly!


Megara
So I’ve planned this selfish dress for a bit now, and here is the result: The reason behind the making of an amazing dress was that I needed a new dress that fitted me perfectly (relative to the other dresses I have from buying) that was more than an everyday wear. I needed it to be snug at the bodice and a big skirt so I could eat a lot without it showing. The dress was going to be used […]

Selfish and unselfish sewing
