      Welcome to my town! Sewing is trendy again, and many people are sewing here too. Here at home it’s my mum, my daughter and me,… :-)
      Looking forward to meet you and talking about our sewing adventures!

      I don’t know the number but on the picture it is a black dress with pufsleeves. I allready finished my dress, but the sleeves where too puffy, and the bodice looked awfull on me, so, horror. No I have to change all that,…pfieuw. Now my mother is making a dress from the same Burda magazine, maybe I shoud warn her haha!

      Hello, I allways adore your work, the things you make are very contemporary and inovative!
      In two weeks I’m in London, maybe you have nice new adresses to visit?

    erotokritos, is that the term? Perhaps the Greek word for staircase! Thanks for your kind comment. Best wishes

      erotokritos is a french brand, (greek roots) they used these sleeves as first a few years ago, I think you would like the brand , check their website!

    dear loulourosa! thank you very much for your compliment! YES i am sewing only for this “short” time, but i sew almoust every day at least a few hours. i think i am addicted :-). i adored the beginning of the month when i was a child, as we allways got the newest burda mag and indeed it was allways so glamouros and trendy and elegant!

      It’s true when the sewing microbe gets you your lost,… I have more fabric and ideas then time to spend in my sewing studio….so be carefull ;-)

      For me it was the same when the new Burda came,… and then fantasising what my mother would make! Especially the november issues where so nice, with all those evening gowns,…
      I still have some of my mothers burda-magazines, and I still use the patterns as well. As for the blouse I made for my friend Charline.
      We also had Burda International, and Carina Burda when I was a teenager, but then I had to make my own clothes.

    Thank you Loulourosa for letting me in to the secret of the double lining….I have nephews and want to give the Ottbre pattern a try for them….so now I am thinking Jackets with Zip in fleece linings…it’ll have to go on the to do list and maybe I’ll get to it before they are teenagers …they are 3 and 6 :)

    oh and thanks for the tips on measuring for Ottobre too!

      I know the feeling of having this to do list! I have all these nice fabrics and so many Ideas and still I manage to make so little,…
      especially for children! My daughter allready starts
      to complain that she wants clothes from a shop!!! and she’s only seven!!!!!

      I think the fleece lining is a good Idea, as it is warm and light. I allready used teddy and stepped (?) fabric. (it looks like its been quilted?)
      You can also use wool, I know from my mother that for lining they used the fabric of old coats,…

    Thank you for the nice comment on my Maryy dress! I didn’t intentionally make the straps larger, but I do think that my seam allowances on the entire dress were less than was provided (I didn’t measure). I think that on the original they might have made them narrower, though, since the way they fit on looks quite different than mine, and I just followed the pattern.
