    ajtak7171 added the project called Dress Shirt goes Fashion!

    Usually I don’t post my refashions here, but I happen to think this one came out really well, and I like to spread the word that re-fashions don’t have to look old-fashioned… This was such a simp…

    ajtak7171 added the project called Home-made Espadrilles!

    Yay, I finally finished my first pair of Espadrilles! It really wasn’t a difficult project at all, especially after having figured out how to make the soles. It is mainly a sewing project, and you …

    ajtak7171 added the project called From Drab to Fab Re-fashion

    Though this is “only” a re-fashion, I am sharing it here anyway. The basic dress was all there, just, well, a bit ugly. Really cheaply made it was something I would never buy anymore nowadays. It w…

    ajtak7171 added the project called My first draped dress!

    Finally I dared to just go ahead and try draping. Of course I made it hard on myself with an amazing silk and wrapping the skirt part around to the back (side seams would have been easier), but I a…

    ajtak7171 added the project called The Wonderland dress!

    Look at this amazing silk! Even though I had all kinds of fitting issues (no-duh, if you don’t make a muslin…!) it turned out fabulous. So I called it the wonderland dress not only because of the…

    ajtak7171 added the project called Me-Made from Head to Toe!

    What fun this was – I had actually planned this outfit, which isn’t so easy… I was never sure whether these pieces would end up working out together or not. I think they do, but I’m also sure I w…

    ajtak7171 added the project called A pair of pants!

    This pattern was actually made for extra-tall women with looooong legs, and I am a shorty with short legs, but I just had to try it. It is from the Burda Style magazine 2/2010 and I love the extra …

    ajtak7171 added the project called Linen-Shirt Re-make!

    This was a quick and fun project, turning my husbands linen shirt into a short-sleeved pin-tuck blouse for myself. I finally used that pin-tuck pressure foot and some decorative stitches from my ma…

    ajtak7171 added the project called Delicious Lace!

    This dress is a very slightly altered wedding dress – I only left away the two bottom layers from the skirt… And of course, I used color! The pattern is available for download. It is actually alm…

    ajtak7171 added the project called Backpack with Leather Details!

    This pattern is in CUT Nr. 8, 01/13. I knew I had to make one, since I’ve been wanting a backpack for the city. Also, I was able to use my leather left-overs from the shoes I made in London and pra…
