Omni Tempore Family Tour |A mom and daughter thing|

I just discovered another shirt pattern to use over and over. It is the Omni Tempore by Annemieke from Sofilantjes Patterns, and the greatest thing about it, is that you can use it for your entire family members. It was actually what I had in mind when I accepted to be in this tour. I wanted to make one for the boys and the ladies in this house, but the pattern only starts at 12M and the hubby didn't like the fabric I bought for this... he won't like it unless it is black or any other dark colour. For the girls only then!

Aren't we so stylish together? The thruth is that I love sewing some mom & daughter clothes (and I might start sewing dad and son clothes too), and this was a great opportunity to do so. This pattern is comfy and so wearable in our daily life. The Omni Tempore exists in child sizes and in adult sizes, it is designed to fit men too. How great is that? However, I just needed the child sizes pattern to do both. You see, I fit a size 13 so I didn't even bother to print the adult version of the pattern. And it fits so good! 

The child pattern starts at 12M and goes up to size 14Y, and then you have the adult pattern to make a matchy matchy for you or your husband too. As fot the option, the pattern comes with a cowl neck (that I haven't seen in any other pattern before) or a hood. Arm and waist bands are optioonal too, you can do a regular hem instead, and you can also pick a short or large sleeve lenght. In my opinion, the pattern has potetial for more, I am sure it'll be really easy to turn it into a dress for example. I made ours exactly the same. Only one thing is different and I only noticed it when I looked at these photos. Can you tell what is it?!

Oh, and if by any chance you are Dutch, you'll be happy to know the pattern is written in both languages. 

She's a much better model than I am, and since we didn't get a lot of good photos here's a few more of her - I keep saying this, my camera is about to die but while it doesn't I keep taking photos with it and they just keep getting worse - the good ones you will find in this blog were taken by dad, he's got a fancy one... I heard rumours though, Santa might be good to me this year. 

So, do you want to make an Omni Tempore?! Get your pattern HERE. During the tour the Omni Tempore Bundle is at 30% off, while child sizes and adult sizes (bought separately) are 20% off.

    1. Thanks! I wish the husband had liked it too...

  2. O tecido é bem giro e vocês estão umas giraças! É engraçado como elas gostam de coisas iguais às nossas, não é? Eu nunca fui muito fã de conjuntos mãe-filha mas depois de ver a felicidade da minha piolha porque temos umas botas parecidas (que ela diz que são iguais!) tenho que repensar a coisa...

    1. Obrigado querida. A minha adorou a ideia das blusas iguais e só assim a convenci a tirar as fotos (hoje!) logo pela manhã antes de ir para o infantário. Adorou as fotos "igual à mamã". Esta idade é linda!

  3. Oh I love this! You both look adorable and that color is perfect on you both!
    Great job! AND I love your background screen too:)

    1. Tão pindéricas que somos! Mas eu adoro, obrigado.

  5. You both look great, Magda!!! Looks like a lovely comfortable top for everyday wear. I can't spot the difference.

  6. The collar ;) Love the mummy-daughter matching look! I think this fabric is gorgeous. Will we see a darker coloured version for your man?

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…
