“Bigger on the inside” travel set

I wish I had made a Tardis (preferably with The Doctor included – preferably David Tennant) but I made a travel set instead! We had an upcoming holiday to France. Only problem: Baby is not a light packer… Or rather mommy is not a light packer for the baby. So with a car filled with baby necessities we needed luggage that we could push and shove into the last remaining airpocket 🙂 Enter: the Portside Travel Set by Grainline Studio. I’m seriously IN LOVE with this pattern. I’ve never been the one to sew anything but clothes but this was … Continue reading “Bigger on the inside” travel set

The ‘mixed feelings’ dress that is the Colette Myrtle

(This is a word heavy post, if you want a review, read on. If you just came for pictures scroll to the bottom) When Sarai released the newest Colette knit pattern, I was jumping with joy. Seriously, I felt like a bouncy castle. I don’t think I ever purchased a pattern this fast and seconds later my printer got to life. I’m not the one to start on a pattern right away, like ‘forget all the rest, nothing is more important’ right away. But with this one I did. The Myrtle was everything I was looking for and more. I … Continue reading The ‘mixed feelings’ dress that is the Colette Myrtle

#MMMay14 – Roundup

Well, it looks like May isn’t likely to become my favourite month. Week one went extremely well and I must say that I really did wear all the Me-Mades I pledged I would but picture taking is another matter. In week 2 the baby got sick, followed by the hubby and me in week 3. Week 4 was a short workweek but we had a charity event on Wednesday which took so much preparation that I just lost it. Every ounce of organisational skill went out the door 🙂 We used the weekends to finish our kitchen and to clean … Continue reading #MMMay14 – Roundup

#MMMay14 Day1-7

My weekly round-up:           My thoughts for the week: I seem to have a lot of tops. But I’m working on that. I’ve made my new pattern for the week, a Colette Ginger skirt and plan to write up my thoughts on that wonderful piece of clothing soon… I’ve finished 2 UFO’s but I’m not happy with them so they will be altered 🙂 All in all, I’m happy with the way things are going, just forgive me the crappy pictures, it’s all I can manage 🙂   PS This is my 100th blogpost! Hurray! Continue reading #MMMay14 Day1-7

#MMMay14

Last year I gave up on Me Made May after a week, on the one hand my pledge was too severe and on the other hand I wasn’t feeling to good at the time. Turned out I wasn’t feeling well because I was pregnant. This year, I’m not pregnant (although, I wish I was :D) and I’m keeping it real with my pledge. When sewing I tend to stick to the easier patterns because I want to have something new with minimum effort 🙂 It hasn’t changed with the baby. One thing that has changed is that I pay more … Continue reading #MMMay14

The One with the Perfect Scarf

If there is one thing I love, it’s an infinity scarf. They are so easy to wear and never fall off. I’ve had the scarf on the left for a few years now and I love wearing it in Spring and Autumn. It really makes a solid outfit pop. Only problem is that it doesn’t match a lot of my clothes (yet, I’ve got a matching Lady Skater planned) So today I was in dire need of a quick project and my precious fabric was the answer. My 9m bolt were actually 2 pieces. One 7,20m and the other 1,80m. … Continue reading The One with the Perfect Scarf

Wardrobe Architect Week 10

Last week I chose my Capsule Wardrobe and I’m very excited about it. This week we had to choose our Capsule Palette based on the colours we chose in week 6. Before I did that I took a long hard look at my colours and decided to re-divide my colours because I realised that some colours where in the wrong category. Especially the true neutrals. Some nearly neutrals are actually true neutrals and can be used for more than just camis and leggings. Here are the new categories: Choosing my Capsule Palette however wasn’t as easy as I thought it … Continue reading Wardrobe Architect Week 10
