Old and new sewing projects

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

In August I visited my family in Germany. What a great trip. It is so nice to see everyone again, but it also makes you miss them more 🙁 But I will go soon again.

Also, I was finally able to take some pictures of a dress I made for my sister. It’s plaid cotton fabric with a little bit of stretch in it. I drafted the pattern myself with the help of the book “Metric Pattern Cutting” by Winifred Aldrich. It is essentially a button down shirt with a simple shirt collar. On the bottom I added a ruffled stripe to make the skirt part.

Then I did two little projects so far in September. One is a bag for my new sewing machine made of old jeans.

The other a little bag for water color brushes also of old jeans. I just bought the brushes and need to start some water color painting soon.

Today is my posting day and I fixed the layout of the blog. Unfortunately I do not feel that great because I got sunburned quite bad at the Badger Game yesterday.
