Knock knock..anyone still there?
oh my poor neglected blog.
Life has been quite busy.
With Angelittle starting to walk,crawl and eat everything in her way now,i hardly get anytime to anything at all.it has been three or so days since i last sewed up anything or did any crafting at all and I'm literally feeling sick because of that.
you know how its like to us addicts,eh?
i have done quite a bit of sewing while Ive been absent here.with the time i get as a minute here,and two there.and i have completed quite a grand total really.sorry,no pictures.
i will work on that.maybe that's why i have been really avoiding my poor blog lately.the lack of pictures of ANY of my projects.Last week,as i was whizzing all over blogsville,i stumbled upon an awesome website.they have gorgeous patterns for clothing.i fell in love with each an every one of them.and here is the best part,they are letting you download their patterns,ALL OF THEM,till the end of this month,FOR FREE!
its almost too good to be true.But there is one little thing though.they are giving the patterns for free download is two sizes,burda size 42 and 44.
As i have been making my own clothes since i started sewing like 4 years ago,and also my husbands clothes since we got married,i have some experience in making clothes.but here's the thing,i have never used patterns before.i measure and draw on the fabric an just cut away.i assume using a pattern would be a heck lot easier right?no thinking or drawing right?
when you are a seamstress,no one walks in a dress by you,unnoticed.you think about it and try to figure out how it was put together.sometimes you do,and sometimes you dont succeed in that.And when i saw these patterns,i thought like,now i can get a glimpse at how its made!the clothes we see on the street and on TV,we dont get to peek inside right?
maybe make a pattern of my own from it,or modify it to my size!
That cant be too hard right?these are some patterns that i downloaded in hopes of trying them out someday.
They have patterns for men too,and for little girls and boys too.I did download some of those too.
Top with a reglan sleeve(this can be a basis pattern for so many a dress and top!)
Ruffled shirt-ish top
A night dress from a sheer fabric
A nighty(in some soft light fabric..that would be pretty awesome huh?)Butterfly poncho style top..?A ruffle dress
A bolero(I plan on making one with longet sleeves so i can wear it out,with sleevless dresses!)A shirtAn evening gown..( how about in red?) A ruffled skirtA top with wings(this can be easily modified to make dress!) A ruched chest dress( have been trying to figure out one of these for sometime)
Go check the place out,you just might find something you like!Or better,something that you have been looking for all along!
come back and do tell me if you do!
Oh and i am in no way involved with them nor am i advertising them or anything.Its just an awesome find that i wanted to share,in case you didn't know!
Now i gotta go try to make this cool awesome hexagon pincushion caddy while Angelittle is still asleep!
