    Hello, Liliv! How are you? You even don’t have a status…. maybe people disapper from the site as well as the projects? I have a feeling that the site is dead. Maybe somebody knows more than I do about the site’s wonders :-)

    Hi Liliv! I just got notification about your comment on my coat, can you please tell me how did you managed to see the project? I cannot see it on project page nor in my studio, I already deleted it once and uploaded it again but still it seems that project is not appearing anywhere? It’s driving me crazy, I don’t know is it problem with my computer or the site.

      It’s a problem of the site. I got notification about your coat because I had added you to my friends, I also added it to my favs but now I can see it nowhere:(( I hope it will be fixed soon. Your coat is really very nice and your photos great!

      Oh, that actually makes sense :) In the end I decided to delete the project again, I will upload the pictures once the site starts running normally again.
      Thank you for your nice comment! I don’t know why it took me so long to photograph this coat, but I’m glad to hear that photos do it justice :)
      Also, I do hope you will get your sewing mojo back soon, I miss your projects!

    Hello my dear! Haven’t been to this site for a couple of weeks – alas I’ve lost my sewing mojo too! Actually I’ve joined a fittness club and am on a diet, so decided to put the sewing machine away until I lose some pounds and can start sewing a smaller size. Hope you are happy and well! Spring must be right around the corner!

    Hi Liliv. Wishing you a wonderful day! Missing your projects, but as soon as your sewing inspiration returns, we’ll be able to see your lovely clothes again. When I loose my inspiration, I crochet for a bit. That is enough to bring back ideas, because crocheting takes to long for me to produce a finished project!!!

    My hardest decisions are trying what to make out of what fabric!!! I am currently making some simple tops; lazy projects, but fun. I saw a designer denim jacket online that I would like to make; it has taken me a lot of scouting around etc to find the things I need for it. It will take a long time to make, so I hope I like it in the end. If I don’t, I’m sure my daughter will ‘permanently’ borrow it. :-)

    Take care and HUGS, Rita

    Hi, Liliv, I was afraid to be tactless but then thought that your are so cheerful and friendly and your comments to your projects have humorous note and we miss them as well as your projects. So wanted to ask about your sewing break. Then I saw the schnui’s qestion and read your answer so feel well now:-) Then I saw the number of your projects and decided that this number is quite inspiring in itself so I should work hard to get you:-)))

    Hi Liliv. I have been thinking of you lately and I see that you have no sewing inspiration at the moment. I think it is quite normal and I am sure once it comes back you will be busy making your beautiful clothes once again. Maybe winter makes you feel uninspired??? Sewing for summer is so much more fun. And a Greek summer has to be the best!! I have been away a lot lately so I have not sewn much but I will be back into it again soon. My millinery course starts again next week and that will get me very motivated to sew, especially if I need an outfit to go with a hat!! I also cleaned up my sewing room and sorted my huge stash of fabric and I realized I really need to sew up a lot of this fabric. My daughter who is 30 has decided she might like me to sew for her once again and I will start making her clothes for her work which will be fun. She needs corporate clothes and that is a lot different to what I need and it will also be challenging for me. I will make her a couple of suits and jackets always challenge me. I am lucky to have a lovely friend who is a professional dressmaker and she generously shares her sewing skills if I am stuck on something. I will try and use youtube tutorials as well. Anyway Liliv, I am sure we will all see projects from you again. I hope you are well and happy. Take care.

      Hi my dear schnui!! So nice to hear from you! It’s true that I have no inspiration and no motivation to sew:( Thanks God my closet is already full of clothes lol. You know I loved very much your pretty hats, they were all very inspiring!! It will be great for you to sew some smart and elegant clothes for your girl and you are really very lucky to have an sewing expert friend! As for me I live in a rainy village where there is no occassion to wear pretty clothes:( Anyway it is sure that sometime I will sew something to post here. Happy sewing and happy crafting in general my dear friend! Hugs and kisses!!

Inky’s mother is semi ferel and my sis has been feeding them all. We managed to get inky lifted and neutered and i ended up keeping her, shes the same age as my little toffee 7 months. The mother turned up the other day with four more!! We caught two so far and i am looking after them until the cat charity picks them uo for re homing. I have my hands full with cats liliv lol x

      Hi raesmom!!! I’m so glad to hear from you! I have missed you my friend, I hope everything is ok for you! I am making a dark green jersey top with long sleeves for the winter…nothing special. I have no time for sewing and most of all no inspiration at all:( Are you preparing something for us to see?

      I have missed you too. I’m okay, just dealing with the winter blues ….. Currently I am working on a pattern for a fitted sheath dress…I had to grade the pattern two sizes up for the hips and that was fun. I guess once I get it right, I suppose whipping up the perfect sheath will be a breeze. :)

      so sorry to hear that you haven’t had time or inspiration to sew I know how you feel and unfortunately, I am mostly driven by emotion ..so when I have no passion or inspiration I could have all the time in the world and still not sew!

      Can’t wait to see your dark green jersey top because I know that it will be a beautiful color…You always pick nice colors.

      With a simple sheath it is all about the fabric…..I know; however I have to work with I have in my stash. My winter and fall fabrics are soso. Nothing I am excited about. But I figure I will remake it in some of my cuter spring/summer fabrics if I love it.

    Hi Friend! How are you? Hope everything is treating you good! :-) Miss you! No improvement for me; just more testing in the upcoming months. At least with all the time on my hands, I am finally slowly sorting through ‘hoarded’ stuff from over many years, so I can move my sewing into a bigger room. :-) I have used some outdated fabric to make some testers, and soon I’ll make up the good fabric. I need to get started soon on the annual Christmas pyjamas, so that hopefully they are ready on time this year. :-) Take care!

    Help my dear friend! I am looking at – Layered Dress 01/2010 #103 – from the WInter White collection. But how do the sizes 72, 76, 80, 84 correspond to the European and US sizes? Do you have any idea? I thought the size chart would help but it doesn’t. I think this would make a great dress! What do you think?

      72 in tall sizes is equal to 36 in normal ones and so on. I like very much this model and I want to make it some time too! I don’t think it will be difficult to detall the pattern. Good luck!!

      Aaaah, now I see! I wonder why this particular pattern should be tall? I’m sure we can shorten it without sacrificing the look, don’t you? I want to make it in white – what color are you thinking?

      there was no reason for this pattern to be tall! I’m not planning to make it soon because I have made too many empire dresses but it is in my huge wish list for the future. I haven’t decided about color or fabric but I think white or pale pink is a perfect choise!

      Oh dear! I accidently marked your reply as inappropriate and now I can’t seem to un do it! I’m so sorry as it is certainly not! :(

      Will your internet situation improve anytime soon? I think I would be lost without it. My sewing has slowed as I am making more than I can wear. I seem to be stuck on several patterns and keep making them over and over, so I decided to take a break and try to find some new inspiration. That said, I do have a lovely aqua knit on the cutting board and may find my way to it later today. I don’t know why I don’t upload more photos. All I can say is some day! Anyhow, good to hear from you.

    Hi Liliv, we are home! Hope all is well with your new home and job. Cruizin was great, but I didn’t ‘heal’ any further. But we still had a wonderful relaxing time. We had to come home a week earlier than planned, as there was some early snow in the mountains, and a motor home just isn’t made to drive in snow! :-) I didn’t purchase any fabric; it was rather disappointing going into some of the shops, maybe better luck next time. :-)

    Liliv, what do you think of the Ruched Panel Dress 09/2013 #127? Something about it is very intriguing, but I think I would make the sleeves narrower. I’m tempted to try it if I can work up the energy to trace the pattern! :) I’m on my 4th issue of BurdaStyle and beginning to think perhaps it would be simpler to just purchase the individual patterns. Nonetheless I’m glad I subscribed for the year because I love looking through them and find they are very inspiring.

      The fabric is a burnt orange knit….and I’m considering a sleeveless (because I have only 2 yards), cowl neck dress which can be worn with a denim jacket on cooler days.

    Oh gosh, househunting! Yes, well I can understand that sewing takes a back seat for now – so good luck with finding a nice place to live!

      I found a wonderful house but I have to wait for some repairs to be done! It’s a sewing paradise: It has a room to use as a sewing place and a huge garden to take photos!!

    How are you? We leave tomorrow for our ‘cruizing’ trip. It’s going to be so relaxing! Hope all is going well. :-)

      Hey sweet BeeZee! It’s hard to find a nice appartment and I miss my internet time! It’s still very warm here! How are you girl?

      Good to hear from you! Sorry you are having such trouble – and yes, I miss you having the internet too my friend!

      My husband is back to school now. All summer passed and not one photo of my fashions taken. I don’t know what my problem is! But at least I have more quiet time to sew now.

      And just when I said it’s turning cooler we’re back in the soup with a predicted high of 91 on Wednesday!
