Last Makes of 2019

I was not too much into sewing this month. Kiddos asked for stuff with their current fav characters so I got them matching fabrics and they both got what they wished for (both Ottobre patterns)-

Pyjamas for Junior - had to add some white  jersey as I only got 1m of the Mario fabric

Elsa dress for Young Lady - original was designed for wovens but they didn´t manage to convince me to use another pattern

Sleeves have contrast facing - not sure if she´ll ever flip it up

Few Months Passed

And I kept sewing.
Charity Xmas stockings - 80pcs total. Fabric was a donation for the purpose. They made underprivileged kids happy as they got filled with sweets for Santa´s delivery -


Pillowcase for autumn with embroidery. Patterns from herehere and here.


Jacket for myself, however this time I skipped the front darts (unlike here).

Pattern Ottobre 5/2013

Hongkong finish involved a lot of hemming by hand

Simple raglan long sleeve from leftovers. Note to myself - next time I will not fold the lace in half for the neckline.

Stashbust for Kids

Kids are growing fast - Young Lady needed a pair of lighter pants and she ended up getting an extra dress of leftovers. All stashbust :) Good thing is I used all the patterns at least twice before so all of these went pretty quick. A tweak here and there so it doesn't look exactly the same at all times.

Ottobre pattern - 4/2013


Ottobre 4/2014 Banana Sweet - opted out the hoodie and the front placket

For the record

I keep sewing - here are my last makes.

Dress with leo print -

Pattern Burda 5/2019

Yes, this is the back

Red dress which I always wanted to have. Pattern Burda 10/2011. The embroidery on the bottom took longer than sewing the dress itself (17 minutes each+prep). This is stashbusting too!



And a pair of jogging pants for Junior. He kept telling me he didn´t want me to sew for him as it always looked like home-made. I bought some ribbing and a few patches. When it was ready I asked him how it looks - and these pants passed the test.

Other Makes

I did some stashbusting in the past few weeks as well - here´s the list -

Skirt cut on bias, totally simple A line


Dress for Young Lady Ottobre 3/2013 Flower Hexagon of leftovers
And the bonus sleeveless top (non stash). The original pattern was with facings on both back and front. I didn´t have enough fabric so I just used some stash bias binding on the edges.
