    macska commented on the project Beatrix Potter Costume - Lady Mouse

    This is absolutely amazing!!! I love it!!! So much detail and so amazingly done it doesn’t even look real. I’m very very impressed (and a bit intimidated too, haha! You have mad skills!)

    macska commented on the article BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern Contest Winners

    Well, that’s a rather nasty attitude you have there, isn’t it?! If you “hate” voting contests that much, maybe you shouldn’t read them, or at least refrain from commenting if all you have to say i…

    macska commented on the project maternity danielle

    Gorgeous! I was thinking the Danielle would be a good one to adapt for a maternity dress – great to see it made up as one! Very pretty and flattering. :-)

    macska added the project The "Duchess" Coat
    Dsc_7422_listing

    I made a coat! Yay!

    My original plan was to make a 1950’s style swing coat. But I didn’t have a pattern for one, so instead I used Butterick B5145 from 2007 as a starting point and altered i…

    macska added the project The "Bad Romance" slip
    Bookr_listing

    Wrap-back maternity slip, made from Vogue 9350 from 1957.

    A great maternity pattern (in my opinion) – the skirt pieces are cut on the bias, and the slip crosses over at the back and ties at each…

    macska added the project The "Owls About It" dress
    Beltedfrontonecorners_listing

    When a friend sent me a vintage 1973 pattern for a maternity “mini dress”, I just had to make it up. (After all, it’s such an odd concept! ;-)

    Made in two prints of pinwale corduroy, just for …

    Fantastic piecing! Looks wonderful (and nice and comfy for a growing bump, too! :-)
