    Καλησπέρα Βασιλική, Θα βρεθούμε αύριο στο Μοναστηράκι στις 12:00; Το κινητό σου το έχω λάθος και βγαίνει μια άλλη κυρία….

    Hi Liliv! Stopped by the Burdastyle site today and just had to say hello to you! My weight has remained stable so I think I finally might be ready to attempt another project now that September is here and the weather is (hopefully) cooler, I am inspired by the Marble Rouched Dress, June 2015 after seeing all the great versions by other members!

    http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/marble-rouched-dress

    I found a piece of black knit that I think would be stunning in this model – but, i hesitate because I have never sewn ‘gussets’! It can’t be that hard can it? Ha ha ha famous last words.

    Hope you are well and enjoyed the summer – it passed so quickly!

      Hi! So nice to hear from you! This dress is amazing, one of the best of burda. I have sewn gussets a couple of times. It wasn’ t the easiest thing to do but if you take your time and be carefull and patient you will have no problem. The fact that you use knit is very good as the worst problem about gussets is the unravelling of the fabric. And of course the black will be very forgiving for any possible mistake! Good luck!

    Hi Liliv! Just stopped by to say hello! Such a long time! I lost 40 pounds and had to stop sewing new dresses because I had, and still have so many to alter!!! Not nearly as much fun as starting from scratch. You are still looking beautiful as ever in your lovely creations! Be Well! <3

      I’ve cut out the “whites” – that is bread, rice, pasta, sugar and joined a gym! I’ve managed to keep my weight stable between 120-125 pounds for over a year following this routine…feel a lot better too. Thank you for your kind words. Hopefully I will get back to the sewing one of these days. In the meantime I’ll just come here and enjoy your creations. <3

    Happy New Year Liliv. I hope you had a great Christmas!!! Ours was quiet and nice; my sister-in-law made dinner, so that was easy for me, we just brought dessert: Broken Glass Cake. Two days later a friend invited us for dinner, and then another two days later, our friends came and invited us to join them for lunch. Then I needed two days to recover; it was worth it to see everyone! My health is stable, my knee is getting worse, so I hope I get the surgery soon. We are trying to decide where to go on a vacation where I won’t need to do too much walking. We are going to try to get to the swimming pool in the next city at least twice a week, and we are hoping that will help, and I will get some weight off!!!! I have so many sewing projects in mind, I almost don’t know where to start! There are a couple of greats nephews with birthdays in February, and one mom asked for a spring jacket and summer shorts, so that will be fun to make. Are you sewing, and just not getting around to posting your beautiful projects? (like me?) Hope all is well my friend….Rita

I don’t sew these days because my sewing place is very cold. But I have traced some new patterns and I hope I will make something soon! Hugs and kisses!

      Hi sweet rita, how nice to find a notification from you! How is your health? Please upload your new sewing pojects soon cause I’m in a desperate need of some inspiration! I haven’t traced a single pattern for the last 4-5 months, my sewing mojo is lost. Here this summer has been cool, except August. I plan to trace a coat pattern tomorrow and start sewing my winter wardrobe. Many kisses dear friend!

      Hi Liliv…Your sewing mojo needs to come back - quickly !!! I get inspiration from your projects, as does my daughter’s requests!!! My projects lately are everyday wear, as I will not be working again. I am not sure how to use all my ‘office’ fabric, but I will eventually. Did you get an email I sent you about what projects I was tracing? What coat are you making? My health is stable, so that is good, thank you for asking. I am learning to live with the limitations, and thank God daily that I am not worse.Sending you some of our hot summer weather, and a share of my sewing mojo….HUGS

      I’m very glad to hear that you are fine! I didn’t get any email from you-that’s very bad as I would like to see what patterns you are tracing. I traced 2 patterns yesterday and I hope I will start sewing today. I was thinking of making the petite coat from 12/2014 issue with the large collar, but I’m not sure it will look nice on me. Please upload your projects soon! Kisses dear friend and happy sewing!

    Hi Liliv! It’s fun with all the things happening on this site… :) I can see your lovely heart-dress in your activities, and that’s the same with my last one too.. Maybe BurdaStyle need a new IT-system, I think they have different servers since I can’t see any activities from friends, and that’s really confusing! We have to be patient and cross our fingers.. Cheers my friend and enjoy the weekend!

      Christmas was nice, but I missed Church and the family dinner as my head was not doing well. Wish I knew of a doctor that knew what the problem is!!! Other than that, I am fine. Keeping myself busy sewing, even if I am very slow at it. I miss seeing your photos. Hopefully you can get some pictures soon. I am glad your Christmas was good, that you have a relaxing break, and a wonderful New Year. HUGS

I have noticed that it takes a while before projects are coming up after posting, but this is strange. Anyway, your dress is awesome, so you have to give it a new try! Cheers my friend!

    Hi Lili. You are so amazing with the speed of your wonderful projects!!!! Is the school year finished now? I’ve been working on that designer jacket, wow, it’s taking a lot of work to figure the little things all out, and to get the fit right. Going to take a break from it, make curtains, and a couple more tops to go cruzing again. The doctor’s have an idea what is wrong; so now to decide which therapy will be best. Hopefully my stress will disappear now, and I can loose that unwanted weight! Meanwhile, I am enjoying being able to sew. Just need to figure out how to sew faster. :-) The weather has finally turned sunny, and it makes it so nice to get out and walk. Have a wonderful day, Rita.

It is finally cooling down for inter in Australia so I will have to sew some nice winter dresses when I return in late June. I hope you have a great summer and enjoy sewing lots of new summer clothes. As usual, my Burda magazines are slow to arrive but I have looked at the reviews and the May issue looks fabulous. I think I know which dress you will sew and I know you will beautiful in it. Bye for now xxx

    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 sweet lady! I’m very glad that you feel ok and that you are able to make lovely things! I love making simple tops because they are so wearable! A designer denim jacket will be very hot! Have a nice day and happy sewing! Kisses my friend!!!
