    Johanna Lu added the project T-shirt romper
    Romper_20160726_1015_listing

    My kid came with a very specific idea about having a romper with a t-shirt top and since I couldn’t find any pattern that matched her design vision, I did a pattern mix-and-match where I used four …

    Gorgeous jumpsuit and the colour of that jersey is stunning, it really elevates the look. Your version definitely tempts me to make one too soon!

    Johanna Lu commented on the article Featured Member: Johanna Lundström

    Thank you! It took me so many years to become any good, and I have the knowledge of the Internet sewing communities to thank for that, plus a lot practice of course :-)

    Thank you! Cool to hear that your experience with wax cloth is great, I think it’s an underappreciated fabric for garments. So many beautiful prints!

    Johanna Lu added the project Burdastyle short sleeve blouse
    Sicily_wardrobe_20160806_1774_burda_listing

    This blouse has a Peter pan collar, a hidden closure, a back yoke and pleat in the back.

    The design is super cute and perfect for a summer blouse. It runs a bit big, so I went down a size to 3…

    Prsicily_wardrobe_20160806_1827_listing

    Shorts with deep front pleats and side pocket. I love how comfortable these are and the pleats makes them almost look like a mini skirt! The side pockets are a welcome addition and I appreciate tha…

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Workout top by Papercut Patterns

    Yes you could! You would, however need to adjust the shape of the tank, because it flares out around the hips in a way that would look odd on a dress. But apart from that absolutely!

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Workout top by Papercut Patterns

    I highly recommend it, plus it’s easy to customize to add your own flair, which is the best thing about sewing :-)

    Cov_pne_sici_096_1_listing

    The Pneuma tank top is very on trend and would be a great pattern if you are into the Lululemon aesthetic . The top curves out over the tummy and hips, thus making it very flattering and comfortabl…

    Totally agree, this pair fits me way better than any jeans I ever bought in a store!

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Anita skinny jeans in dark denim

    Yes definitely hard work, but I actually find jeans to be easier to make than some other more ambitious sewing projects. The fabric is easy to work with and lots of straight lines :-)

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Merino Strathcona Henley

    Looks fab! I’m very impressed that you managed to make that button band in a merino knit fabric. I’ve tried making those several times in various supple knits and they were always a struggle

    Johanna Lu added the project Anita skinny jeans in dark denim
    Anita_jeans_031_listing

    This is the second time I make these and I strongly recommend this pattern if skinny jeans are what you want. Skinny as in tight and tapered, not straight or boot-cut. The legs are super long thoug…

    Johanna Lu commented on the project Burdastyle frills dress

    Yes do! I haven’t really seen any reviews of this pattern and I think it is such a great dress that deserves to be made and the long sleeved version looks fantastic

    Little shorts that have little pleats, cuffs and pockets. The shorts are super flattering due to the pleats and puff shape, and also very comfortable and stylish. In the back they are shaped with d…
