What's Next?




swing dress 08/2012 pattern
I am working on this dress today, named Swing Dress 08/2012 from Burdastyle. The original dress has a small cap sleeves, side panels shape bust and gathered skirt. I used my striped jersey knit that already stay inside my stash for so long waiting for me to sew.
The most I love on this dress is the lovely side panels shape bust. But a small sleeves cap is not something that flattering me, so I will change with a normal short sleeves.

I used size 34 for the top pattern and size 36 for the skirt pattern. So I have to extend the top waist line to match the two pattern together. I also have to shorten the length of the skirt. Making a short sleeves pattern, I mean copying the short sleeve pattern from the previous project:)))
I hope my dress will turn up perfect.

...happy sewing...

This is another project for kcwc fall 2012, I made from the left over black cotton fabric from my first project for kcwc fall 2012. I used burda magazine june 2008/ kids 3/4 pants pattern size 104. It's the same pattern that I used to make a black pants for Eduardo. I shortened the length of the pants according to the shorts size. I removed the front pockets and the side pockets. In the end I inserted elactic inside the waistband.
It's very fast project that I ever expect it. I have done this shorts for 2 hours:)

....happy sewing...

 Meg from elsiemarley.com was throwing the challenge called kids weeks clothes challenge fall 2012. I decided to joint in and this pants is one of the project for the challenge. It was very busy week but I tried to put myself to sew at least one hour during 7 days. And I am very happy with my work. The pants fit my son very well.

I used the pattern from burda magazine june 2008, originally is 3/4 pants for kid. The pattern has 6 pockets in total, 2 pieces front pocket, 2 pieces back pocket and 2 pieces side pocket. I added length to the pattern and inserted elastic inside the waistband.
Material for this pants is 1 yard black cotton and using same colour thread.
