    lauriana added the project 1960's again
    Leunend_listing

    I really like the 1960’s dress I made last week so, I decided to make another one. Again, I used a pattern from a vintage Marion magazine, this time one from 1968.

    lauriana added the project My 1930's dress
    Zittend3_listing

    This dress wasn’t easy… I made it using a pattern from 1933. The bias cut striped fabric was a lot of trouble to work with but now the dress is finished.

    lauriana added the project 1950's style top and skirt
    Zittend_listing

    Some simple 1950’s style separates: A big gathered skirt and a cap sleeve top with an inserted strip of contrast fabric which looks like a stylized collar.

    That’s such a lovely dress! It’s great that you could make a girl’s pattern work for you and I love the colour.

    lauriana added the project something sporty
    Vest2_listing

    I rarely sew sporty stuff but recently, I realized I could use a sweater/cardigan type thing to put on before and after sporting (I’m a rock climber).
    So, I made one. I drafted the pattern using m…

    lauriana added the project A practical bikini
    Bikini1_listing

    A few years ago, I made some bikini pieces to mix and match. Unfortunately, neither of the two tops worked very well for real swimming.
    Now, I have finally made one that does.It’s shaped like a s…

    lauriana added the project red wrap dress with gathers
    Zij_listing

    I started to make this dress last year. I thought it out, drafted the pattern and did most of the sewing. It was vaguely inspired by the gathered dresses from the 1940’s.
    When I tried it on, I was…

    lauriana added the project blue dress in jersey and cotton
    Lachen_18_11_33_listing

    Such a simple idea and yet I hadn’t used it yet: A dress from both jersey and woven cotton.
    Bodice and sleeves are made from jersey, the skirt, button placket and collar from woven cotton.

    lauriana added the project That cloche
    Cloche2_listing

    If you make one hat, why not try another?
    This is a very different one. The pattern came from a magazine from the 1920’s (I didn’t make the attached scarf) and I sewed it by hand from thick synth…

    lauriana added the project Simple fedora
    Fedora1_listing

    Years ago, I bought a cut-and-sew fedora in the sale of a well know clothing store. It was 1 or 2 euros and I didn’t like the fabric. I did like the shape and figured I could cut it up and to make …

    Voor_listing

    I made this robe using a pattern from the 1954 Lutterloh book. These books contain miniature patterns which you can enlarge using a special ruler that comes with it. It was one of the strange patte…
