Hand Knitted Cardigan

I am participating some challenges in Instagram this year, one of them is #2018makenine hosted by Rochelle New and glad I finished my first garment that I worked since January. For the pattern, I decided to chose free pattern - Estuary v-neck cardigan size 36 that I found in Ravelry. The cardigan has a simple stockinette stitch for the bodice and sleeve, 2x2 rib for the sleeve and hem bands and 1x1 rib for front/neckline band.
I skip the colour block style and use one colour only because I have enough amount of yarns in my stash and as promised I wouldn't buy new yarns this year except when I am on travel 😁

March 2018 Garments

This dress was made last month for my entry to "Mad March - make a dress" #magamsewalong hosted by Sarah Liz Sew Style. After thinking and selecting the fabric and pattern, I decided to try Diana dress S1034 from my image pattern. Diana dress has nice pleats at the front neckline, long sleeves and simple shape of shift dress but sadly I didn't like the final pleats on me after I tried the muslin (I posted the picture on My Instagram).
And instead of making one more muslin and solve the pleat issues, I changed the pattern. I chose another pattern from My Image, Marua Tunic dress S1033 size 36. The original pattern of Marua has asymmetrical hemline and finished the neckline with facing but I modified it to my liking, regular hemline and finished neckline with a band.

Feature February Outfits

I made three selfish garments last months and all of them are my entry for #magamsewalong hosted by lovely Sarah Liz Sew Style The two garments (colour block turtleneck t-shirt and jeans pants) finished on time but the pink t-shirt in the picture above finished two days ago. Luckily that the weather is getting cold again, so I can wear them. I wore the pink t-shirt with jeans pants yesterday and wearing the colour block turtleneck today.
Also, the scarf was made by me and I think it goes really nice with the pink t-shirt. I was lucky to have enough amount of scrap plum colour knit in my stash.

Before I write more, I'd love to let you know that these will be the last winter garments that I sew this winter. I will start making spring/summer garments after this, especially to wear on my next trip.

Boy's Raglan Sleeve Tops

Hello fellow sewists,
Today I want to show you the finished three tops that I made especially for dear son. The reason why I decided to make them instead of buying in the shop was because I want to use my stash fabrics, scraps and garments to refashion. Besides, I want to follow my 2018 sewing plans to reduce stash and to reuse previous garments that are still okay.

About the first top, I made in December for him to wear in the Christmas party at school and glad that he looked good in it and he performed well 👏 I was overjoyed watching him that day.
The top was made from leftover green knit cotton fabric for the sleeves and refashioned his step brother t-shirt for bodices.

My Image M1766 Coat

Hello fellow sewists,
I made a new coat and this is my first post of the year after a long absence. But before I write more, I want to wish you a Happy New Year, may 2018 be filled with happiness, love, health, prosperity and many sewing time to come.

I have been sewing and knitting lately but no blog post, I was thinking to make one post about all my makes but then I gave up due busy time. But you can see all the photos on my Instagram if you are interested.
About the coat, this garment is my entry for #magamsewalong January with the theme "Join In". To fit on the theme, I decided to make a garment that I really need at the moment and using stash fabric instead of buy the new one. But unluckily I don't have matching colour silk for the lining. I have black, three different blues, grey and white but no purple 😥 So I went to buy 4 yards of deep purple silk in the local shop that's enough to make two garments.

DIY Jeans And White Cotton Blouse

Hello everyone,
I made a new outfit and these garments are my entry for #magamsewalong October and November. My plan for October Original was a self-drafted skirt and white blouse in the picture below, the skirt turned out fine but I'd love to make adjustment next time. So, I will post the skirt detail separately later.
For November Needs, I was planning to make jeans and bought two pieces of jeans fabrics in dark blue and black. I decided to sew the blue colour first as wearable muslin but in the end I like the result and I am in the middle of finishing the black one but no time to complete this month, so I will continue next month.

Coincidentally the jeans and white blouse are lovely match, so I just wear it together 😁

Cosy Cardigan and V-neck T-shirt

Hello fellow sewists,
I made a cardigan and t-shirt for my entry in Instagram sewing challenge #cosycardichallenge, both garments are based on Simplicity pattern 8059 size xs for the cardigan and xxs for the t-shirt. I was planning to make the cardigan only but decided to make the t-shirt after I finished because I don't have a matching t-shirt to wear with it.
Luckily that the pattern came in five different models and one of them is a asymmetrical tunic that was easy to modify to a simple v-neck tee.

About the cardigan - the fabric is knit jersey in brown from stash which I don't really like the colour but I have to use it to reduce my growing stash.
And the pattern is Simplicity Misses Separates 8059 knee length cardigan size xs. I reduced the cardi length more than 17 cm and sleeve length 9 cm to adjust to my size. But the rest are fine and happy that the instruction was easy to follow.
