DIY Wrap Swimsuit ( Third Version)

Here is the last garment I made last month, a wrap-style swimsuit made from lycra fabric from my stash. I made two similar swimsuits before and I was happy with the fit. So, I was okay with the process and was sure it would turn out as well as the previous ones.  The process took me two days, just right before our holiday. And I immediately packed it as soon as it finished.  I love this wrap swimsuit, the design hides the fatty tummy and is comfortable to wear for swimming. Also, the wrap style adds something special, so girly and stylish. For the pattern, I used my self-draft (TNT: tried and true pattern) and the sewing process was started by cutting the fabric pieces, sewing the elastic on the front lining and continuing to pin the necessary parts. I prepared the bands for the back ties and the side wrap. Sewing them as a loop and turning them inside out. I pinned and sewed the bands (ties) on the right front piece (wrap) and backside. Stitched the

Silk Blouse

I'm glad that I finally finished another project from last month, a silk blouse with a side knot Burdastyle pattern 12/2019 size 38. My plan was to make it for my entry to magamsewalong "December Dreaming" challenge on Instagram but life was so busy and I couldn't make it on time.  For the fabric, I used my dream fabric from stash, floral silk crepe de chine. I bought it in the local shop a while ago and I really love the print.  The sewing progress was difficult but I managed to finish it after many errors, basting and pinning (my pattern instruction was in the German language, no time to translate, just sew the blouse with my self-taught).  Firstly I was working on the front pieces and created them into a side knot. After that, I worked on the left shoulder line, sewed the band for the buttons closure in the back shoulder piece. Also, made self-cover buttons using the same fabric. After the sewed the band, I basted the loops in th

Flax Pullover

I finally finished my Flax Pullover after one year of working on it. I'm glad and happy with the final result, the fit is good, loose, and comfy. I started this pullover on January 21 last year, I used acrylic and rayon blend yarn from the local shop. At first, I wasn't sure about the yarn because I didn't really like acrylic but the color is so pretty, so I bought the pack (8 balls of yarns). For the pattern, I used a free pattern from Tin Can Knits  link here , and my plan was to make the green pullover version the one that the model is wearing in the picture below.  I used size ML because I wanted a little loose and made the sleeves plain using stockinette stitch only. My progress was very slow, I was knitting a few rows in my free time especially at night after dinner or after I put my son to the bed.  The instructions were easy to follow and I was enjoying the progress, also I was lucky I found a Youtube channel that explain more det

V-neck Lace Dress

Happy New Year 2022 everyone, I wish you a safe, healthy, and prosperous new year 💖 On my sewing table at the moment is a Burdastyle blouse with a side knot, I cut the blouse fabric and started sewing on December 17 but I couldn't finish it until today due to the holiday season. So, instead of waiting for the finished blouse to update this blog, I decided to publish the v-neck lace dress that I made at the beginning of December. I posted this lace dress on  my Instagram  last month, the reason why I sew this v-neck dress was to wear it at our 10th wedding anniversary dinner. I finished the dress on time but somehow I think it was missing something in this dress, I tried to add a bow at the waistline and silk overlay at the shoulder but I still didn't like the dress. In the end, I keep this dress for future wear and went to the mall to buy a dress for the anniversary dinner 😁 Well, I love this v-neck dress, simple and the fit was good. The dress has 3/4 sleeves len
