    Tante Karlo commented on the project Par Avion Replication

    Thank you! I’m sorry, I don’t.. I basically cut the Belladones front bodice in half, and added a couple inches to create the overlap. The skirt is one rectangle I pleated and attached to the bodice…

    Tante Karlo commented on the project Linen Camì Dress

    Thank you! The only feeling I have is that the waist is a little too low, but maybe that’s because I’m used to wearing a really fitted bodice, and this one ’s looser.
    The fabric feels really good t…

    I found this lovely pinstripe linen/cotton (?) blend for only 2.5 euros per metre, so this dress only cost m…

    Tante Karlo commented on the project Watson Jacket

    Thanks so much! This fabric isn’t really thick on itself, but hopefully warm enough! I did widen the outersleeves a tiny bit because of the extra layer of fleece.
    You should definitly try again!

    Image_listing

    It took a long time for me to cut this fabric, I just wanted to be 100% sure to use it right.

    There isn’t really a patte…

    Photo_15-06-14_15_32_32_listing

    I tend to start with a pattern hack, before I actually make the original one.

    So with the Scout Tee, I lowered the back, and added a giant vintage grossgrain bow, and I also added bias tape at …
