    Thank you so much! Too bad they don’t have the pattern on this site, but maybe you own the magazine and can make them, too…;-)

    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 …

    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…

    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…

    Rucksack_13_listing

    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…

    Some of you might have seen this on my blog already, but I didn’t get around to posting it here, too, as I was too busy making shoes… I went to a shoe-making course in London, and knowing the wea…

    I had a really successful visit at the flea market a long time ago, when I bought this wool suit for an amazing 5 Euros. I just loved the fabric, a herringbone pattern in turquoise and purple! It w…

    I’m swooooning! And I really love the look with the scarf. My favorite is the striped one, where you really see the bias direction… Oh goodness, now I need that book… Congrats!

    Thank you so much!!! Yes, I absolutely agree about the resources etc, that’s why I am really into up cycling and making things without having to spend a cent :-) Not so much because of the money, b…

    Yes, I really want to post made-from-scratch garments here, rather than my recycling projects. The problem is that I don’t have much time, and I – wrongly! – think, upcycling takes less time, so it…
