Signature Style |PR&P10|

Yet another week and I'm so glad that I was able to have a look to share with every theme from this season of Project Run & Play. After completing two outfits for the girl, it was only fair to get too done for the boy too. If you missed last weeks look click through the images below and it will take you there.


I love Signature Style week. For the first seasons that I sewed along I felt lost and trying to determine what my style is. I am so sure I found it already. And the outfit I am sharing today has it all. First of all, I refashioned. Well, if you can call using the leftovers from pieces you've cut in previous refashions a new refashion of its own, than yes, that's what I did. I used scraps from the black t-shirt I've used to make the briefs, leftovers from a white t-shirt and half leg pieces from a pair of red leggings that I had cut and use as shorts for a couple of years. Oh, I also used tights... Ah!

I started this  with the pants. S. really needed a few and this was a nice comfy knit I could use for him. It was in my stash forever and it wasn't much soI figured I should use it while he's still so little. I drafted these after some existing ones but I messed up while cutting and they got a little too tight. His sister's tights were using to create the cuffs, they are a very light grey. 

Then I did the shirt. I wanted to use light grey for the sleeves but I didn't have any =( so white it is. And then I realised I used the red-white-black combination again! My signature all over, right?! I used the Billy Bright Eyes Snappy Tee Shirt for the pattern, it is the my 3rd and all of them look pretty different (you can see the one I did for G. and the first I did for S.)... This one, has a bitof piping crossing the bodice just because the black fabric wasn't enough to cut the front piece so, I pieced it and used piping to create a design instead of crying over it. I have added the pocket again because I sthink it looks so cute!!! I did the 3M this time and sleeves are a bit too long for him, but all the rest fits just right. This is my favourite shirt for babies because of the snaps in the shoulder. I also love that it starts at 3m because most patterns I own start at bigger sizes and that's annoying when you want to sew for such a tiny person, right?!


  1. Cute and snuggly--perfect for your little guy!

  2. I've wondered why there aren't more patterns for smaller babies? Magda, your project looks super comfortable & practical for your newest baby. He's a cutie!

    1. I guess people won't make a lot of pieces from a smaller pattern because babies grow so fast, but there should be more available, right? For the crazy people that spend hours sewing a piece that most likely will be used twice and overgrow. Comfortable is my main goal at all times.

  3. Magda, tu és MÁGICA! Fico sempre de boca aberta com estas coisas super giras que fazes com um bocadinho de tecido daqui e outro dali... a sério, que coisa gira e que dom que tu tens! Adoro. (Tenho que experimentar coser mais com malhas... )

    1. Que exagero mulher! A necessidade aguça o engenho, já se sabe. Sabes, eu só comecei a coser mais com malhas há pouquíssimo tempo e olha que costuro HÁ ANOS!

  4. so so cute!! I love comfy boys clothes!! I just linked up my all boy style and I'm loving all the other links! Emily

    1. Thank you Emily, )'m still getting used to sew for a boy! =D

  5. É mesmo o teu estilo! :) Fico sempre super impressionada com as coisas que fazes para o teu pequenino... Quando os meus eram assim bebés eu ainda não costurava, mas mesmo que já costurasse não sei se me aventurava... :)

  6. Obrigado Sara! O mais giro de costurar para ele, é que qualquer pedacinho de tecido (ou restos d'outras roupas cm é o caso) dá para aproveitar.=D Para ela fiz a 1ª roupinha qd ela tinha 2M e nunca mais parei.

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…
