The night blue dress
I needed a dress for the 20s-themed event Bohéme Sauvage in Hamburg. So I took an old pattern and altered it to look gourgeous in December 2011.
fabric: jersey and stretchy net/lace. I bought 2m each at Stoffmarkt Holland.
brooch: flea market
pattern: Satinwickelkleid 111, burda style 11/2010
I made this dress for a friend’s 50s-themed wedding in July 2010.
I altered a pattern I found on the internet, adding lining, a zipper and something between a underskirt and a real petticoat. I had quite a hard time with the lining, but it worked out in the end.
The buttons are only sewn on for decoration.
Fabric etc.: pale blue cotton, ice cream patterned cotton, pale blue lining, pale pink buttons and a pale blue invisible zipper, all bought at Stoffmarkt Holland.
Pattern: altered version of this one (in German)
This is an old project from July 2010.
Batman? No, Bat-Flower!
After a mismatched neckline and a total screw-up on it I finally managed to get this done:
But I wasn’t really happy with it yet. This stupid neckline… so I added some jersey-tulle-button-flowers to the batwing top:
I cut out circles of jersey and tulle, layered them and used press studs to attach them.
And here’s a close up of those flowers:
This is one of my older sewing projects from June 2010
The Maritime Tea-Top
You can still find the pattern on burdastyle.com – best thing about it: it’s for free!
I altered the pattern a little bit.. added the striped fabric to the darts and added my favourite part of the top: The Bow!
The bow is attached with a safety pin, so I can wear it with other stuff as well.
The top has a zipper in the back.
All the fabric used is old stuff I had lying around and put together it looks quite neat!
Here’s a close up of the bow:
Got the button at the Stoffmarkt Holland for 1,- Euro, bought the zipper there as well. So all together I paid 3,40 Euro for my top and no one else has one like it! Beat that H&M!
