Bell Shaped Top

Before our trip to Ukraine, I went shopping for something that would go with skinny jeans or pencil skirts, something that would be easy to wear, be trendy and a bit oversized. I also wanted it to be white. I tried a few things, and found one top that I really like, but it was something like $150.00 and I wasn't willing to spend that much. So what does any self respecting seamstress do? Make one, of course. Here is a question I have for you, would you like it as a pattern?

Burda 04/2015 #103 Pattern Review

This was a little top I made for myself before our trip to Ukraine. It was a quick and easy project and I am quite pleased how it turned out.

How not to Choose Fabric for the Project

This is my public service post, as in learn form my mistakes and save yourself from desperately trying to save a complete sewing fail. lol I have to admit, I am happy with the end results. I wore both the skirt and the top quite a bit, especially the top. It's just not what it was supposed to be.

What was it supposed to be? It was supposed to be a dress. This dress to be exact. Ready for it?

Simplicity 8341 Review

I sewed a few things for myself before our trip to Ukraine, but didn't have the time to share. It's never too late, right! :) The first pattern I made was Simplicity 8341 by Mimi G. 

How to Measure and Sew a Ribbed Neckband

When Verson Puoti, a Finnish knit fabric store, posted a search for a seamstress on their Instagram feed, I jumped at a chance to try out their fabric. I was thrilled to be chosen! The fabric is fantastic. It's 95% cotton and 5% elastane.  The drape is awesome. I wish I made something for myself. :)
