Well, a change for this blog into fashion sewing as well. I’ve been lurking around the sewing blogs for a while and occasionally posting reviews on Pattern Review .. but now it’s time for a blog of my own. Well sort of. Not really my own since I’m sharing it with the chef in the house…..
First I have to post the trench coat I made for our daughter last year. It was one of the most satisfying but also more time consuming projects I have made for a long time. The fabric was beautiful: a lightweight silver/bronze shower-proof synthetic of some sort with a fleece-like black backing. This fabric was purchased at a local designer fabric sell off. There’s more detail in my review. The pattern is a Burda Magazine one: 02-2008-114
The dress she is wearing under the trench is also one of my creations: more details are here
