Hi everyone, Easter is almost here and today I finally finished my Easter eggs. They look really delicious but I can not eat them :-) I wanted to make it since the beginning of the month but time always flies - oh well that's life! I didn't sew any garments during this past two weeks but I have time to clean up my sewing space and separate some of the fabrics that I want to sew on the next couple weeks. Beside that, I also worked on the blog, if you noticed - I changed the blog header and organized my pages tab. I think it looks nicer now :-) Well, I am not going to bore you more with explanations.  Now I am going to show you my delicious Easter eggs, For the materials - I used my fabric scraps from stash, polyester stuffing and threads. For the pattern - I used free pattern and easy step by step tutorials from Retro Mama - Fabric Easter Eggs  - I found this easy and quick crafts to make through Jessica's blog , she also made these cute eggs and hosting "Scrap

Hi everyone, I finished my Megan dress yesterday - exactly on the deadline of  Mad Men Dress Challenge 3 but I couldn't publish my project in the blog. I took some pictures last night but the result wasn't so clear, so I took pictures again today and publish it as soon as I finished. My dress is inspired by Megan Draper 60's style yellow dress, but I made some changes according to my own style, Make the dress length a little bit longer Sewn 6 buttons on the skirt front flap instead of 4 buttons  The belt finished with snap-fasteners in the back side of the dress image source As I couldn't find any plain yellow fabric in my local shop, I bought 2.5 yards medium crepe fabric in very deep pink ( the fabric has shiny part in one side and hard in the other side) according to the shop owner I can use both side of fabric. I used the shiny one facing inside. And for the skirt flap lining, I used silk polyester fabric. med weight crepe fabric silk polyes
