    Bladkjolen_3__listing

    A quickie skirt I made with some leftovers. It took me about one and half hours to finish the skirt (including some seam ripping after putting a dart in the side seam).

    The pattern is Meringue f…

    escorpio commented on the article Comment to Win from Arrow & Kangaroo Sewing Cabinets

    I have a desk dedicated to sewing, but it is a desk. It can double as a cutting table, but when the machine is out (which it most often is) there’s no room for cutting and I must use the floor. On …

    escorpio commented on the article Comment To Win: ReSew

    I haven’t refashioned anything (!), but I wish I was one of the persons too see potential in “bad” pieces of clothing. Some inspiration would be great!

    Polka dots to me seems so 50s!
    A simple sunhat made for travels to American south, although I haven’t decided if it will make it there. The pattern is a Burda pattern, which was found on the old …

    escorpio commented on the article Comment to Win Robert Kaufman Fabrics!

    I see so many beautiful things when I look at the fabrics. The Night and Day would make a lovely dress, the organic voile a shirt. The last two look like they are made for skirts. And then I’d stil…

    escorpio added the project The three year blouse
