July MAGAM - Floral Shift Dress

Image
Hello, I have finished my floral dress and I will be wearing this dress on a very special occasion next month :) So, I decided to just show you the dress in the dress form for now. Then I will post pictures of me wearing it on that day. Well, I started work on this dress in the end of May but I was stuck with the neckline. I didn't know exactly what I wanted the neckline to be and then after the dress hanging for so long in the dress form, I just decided to make the neckline exactly same as my previous dress. Problem solved! Pattern and materials: For the pattern, I used Burdastyle Vintage Modern Jamie Shift Dress size 34 with some modifications. You can check the detail here in my previous dress For the materials - I used 2 yards of floral cotton, fusible interfacing, ready-made bias tape in orange color, invisible zipper, hook n eye and same color thread. Sewing process: Most of the sewing process is exactly like my previous dress  but this time the neckline fini

Hi everyone, I made these pajama shorts especially for my dear husband. He needed some new shorts to wear at home, so I decided to make two for him. The two fabrics are from stash and I still have leftover to make t-shirt for me :) I made the blue one a month ago and already made a t-shirt from the leftover fabric, you can see it  here . And I finished the green one two days ago, the leftover fabric is still huge. Maybe I will make a t-shirt, but I am not sure when I will work with it. We will see.. Pattern: I followed step by step tutorials from Craftsy.com - it's very easy and quick project to make.

Finished Magam June Outfit

Hello everyone, Sorry for my late post! Here is my June  MAGAM outfit based on Burdastyle patterns.. T-shirt details, Simple style t-shirt, nothing fancy but perfect for everyday wear.   Pattern and modification: For the pattern, I used Burda t-shirt pattern 06/2008 - 113 size 34. You can check out my first version here.   As you all see that my first version was fine but I am not so happy with how the neckline turned out, so I decided to raise the front neckline 2 cm and I used smaller neckband 1 cm.   Materials: 1.5 yards of knit cotton in white color, stay tape for the shoulder lines, and white color thread.   For the sewing process, you all can see here in  my first version . But I omitted the contrast stitching and made the neckband smaller. And  I think that the neckband turned out well :-) Here are the pictures of the t-shirt - front and back views,     Skirt details, Very cute and girly floral skirt, it has a slight flare and decorative l
