This winter, I was determined to finally sew myself a dress using the lovely black wool crepe which had been in my stash for years…
I thought several different design but settled on this one. A …

lauriana added the project Sewing for him
Sometimes, I sew for my boyfriend. And this time, thanks to this fabric I found at the market, he got a type of garment I hadn’t made him before: A cardigan.
I drafted my own pattern based on the …

Lovely, stylish coat!
lauriana commented on the project Winter Maxiskirt
Great skirt! And it doesn’t make you look short at all… On the contrary.

lauriana added the project Downton Abbey blouse
When re-watching season two of Downton Abbey, I really started to like the blouses worn for daywear by both the young ladies and off duty maids… And luckily, I have some really old sewing magazin…

lauriana added the project 1957 outfit
For reasons which are a bit too complicated to explain here, I decided to try and copy this outfit from 1957 using tutorials and patterns from that time.
The skirt and belt were made using a tuto…

What a great dress!

Dress made using a vintage ‘enlarge to size’ pattern system called Frohne.

lauriana added the project a winter coat re-born
Years ago, I made myself a winter coat (own design and pattern) which I loved (in fact, I’m posted it on Burdastyle as well. It should still be somewhere in the far reaches of my studio but it’s ea…

lauriana commented on the project Merckwaerdigh BHS10, View D bra and Make Bra Hipster
And it’s funny to see someone who doesn’t live in the Netherlands sewing with Merckwaerdig patterns. As a lingerie sewing pattern brand, they’ve been around for a while over here but …

lauriana added the project cozy autumn dress
What’s nicer for those cold dark evenings ahead than a nice warm and comfortable dress?
I hope this dress, made from knit fabric, will fit the bill.
As usual, it’s designed and drafted and sew…

lauriana added the project Jeans and a shirt
I have made skinny jeans… I’ve made all kinds of jeans over the years, but never that. Even these are not your standard skinny jeans, of course. They are a high-waisted concoction by my own desig…
lauriana commented on the project My wedding dress in silk duchesse
GREAT. The design is very good: Classy, stylish and flattering. The dress looks very well made and it suits you so well.
I hope you loved every moment of your wedding day and I wish you the best…

My boyfriend needed a new coat, so I made him one.
The design and pattern are my own.

lauriana commented on the project Dark Gray Hooded Steampunk Corset Coat, Corset & Chemise Blouse
The whole outfit looks very impressive.
I hope you’ll sell your items easily.
About the corsets though, they don’t look like they provide any waist reduction. Obviously, they are very nice as t…
lauriana commented on the project Plaid wool Jacket
That’s such a nice jacket! And you look really comfortable in it too.
Very cool. You remind me, I should get back to using Pattern Magic…
Oh wow! I love the Pattern Magic books but I have never seen this project made by anyone before.

lauriana added the project striped long cardigan
I really liked the unusual shape of this cardigan when I saw it in the pattern store.
The stripes in the fabric bring it out even more. I added a facing along the front edge because my fabric does…

lauriana added the project a great new jumpsuit...
I’ve had this idea for a while: a jumpsuit which combines suit-like styling with a wrap-over style with a pleat in the trouser part… And now, I’ve drafted just that.
It also has a notched collar…

lauriana added the project comfortable bulky cardigan
This is my first real autumn project for this year. It didn’t come together as easily as I had hoped but I got there in the end. The design and pattern are, as usual, my own.
More about it on "m…

lauriana added the project racer back bra with lace
To be honest, I don’t really understand why racerback bras are usually restricted to sportswear. They are really comfortable and can look as good as any other bra. So, I made my own.
I made my own…

lauriana added the project classic LBD
My attempt at a classic Little Black Dress. I drafted my own pattern and made it from mid-weight stretch cotton from my stash.
More about it on my blog…

Sharp and Snappy D, to be precise. A design from the book Pattern Magic 3: Stretch Fabrics

lauriana commented on the project Style Arc Romy Anorak
Wow, that looks very good. Stylish and practical.
Coats like that have so many details and yours look really professional.
1 September, 2014
lauriana added the project No-zip skirt
Nice full skirt with deep pleats at the front. You can unbutton the pleats which means they work as a closure for the skirt so I didn’t need a zipper.
I’ve made a simple tutorial for this on "my…
