My plan to bring all projects of the last 2 years on the blog, I have abandoned. Maybe I’ll write something again about my two major projects, an evening dress from 2019 and a jacket in Chanel style from 2020 (there I have fulfilled a sewing dream). Instead, I’ll try to get back up to […]
Pattern: Nettie bodysuit from Closet Case Patterns, modified Size: 4 Fabric: cotton stretch knit Alterations: cut off the bottom to make a T-Shirt Completed: 2017 Conclusion: much too tight, love the neckline though, great for layering

This is a small project I made last summer. I am in great need of simple T-shirts, and I have a good fitting pattern (the ITS Idyllwild), but I was reluctant to start. Plain simple T-shirts are a bit boring. So when I read a review of the book “Alles Jersey” I was intrigued because […]
