Pattern Testing

After the sewing storm that went through in this blog for the past few weeks, I was feeling sad I couldn't show you more. I haven't stopped sewing. I have some nice things to show you, but they are kinda secret yet. 

I was happy when a designer I tested for, told us we could start showing some of the tests we did for her. This is a pattern that will be out pretty soon, for now, I will leave you with a sneak peak of it, and soon, I will show you more, on model and the second one I did (also while testing). 

I have something else done with that polka dot fabric... but again... you'll have to wait to see it... And yes, I have been sewing projects that are neither black, white or red... I notice a tendency here, don't you?!


  1. What a sweet skirt!
    I love the fabric and design too!

  2. That is a sweet little skirt :) Red is mu fave colour ;)

  3. Red is one of my favorite colors too! And I dress a lot in black + white +/or red, so I can totally understand your color tendency, erh, choice! :)

  4. E agora é que me apercebi que escrevi o comentário anterior em inglês! :)) O molde dessa saia é muito giro! Fico à espera de ver mais!

    1. hehehe... é normal, a ler em inglês o impulso é responder tb em inglês, o que até é justo para quem gosta de ler os outros comentários...
      Pois, eu lembro-me do vestido preto que fizeste, os acessórios que usaste eram os vermelhos, certo? eu tb uso imenso essas duas/três cores... gosto dos sólidos, fazer o quê?!
      Quero fazer um post com as duas saias que fiz (neste teste), mas ainda não me lembrei de vestir a 2ª à miúda para irmos tirar fotos. Além disso o fotografo sofre imenso com as alergias nesta altura e fica difícil de irmos dar algum passeio a 3. =/

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.

I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.

So, the first thing you have to do is…

The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
