Phresh Blazer #4

Scroll down for english, please!

No último post mencionei o blazer que a G. vestiu para as fotos das calças. Já é tempo de vos falar um pouco mais sobre ele. Foi feito em Agosto, mas nestes últimos meses, houve muita coisa que ficou por mostrar, porque para além de ter costurado menos, a vontade de fotografar, editar, escrever sobre as peças era menos ainda. Usei, pela quarta vez o molde Phresh Blazer da Winter Wear Designs. É o terceiro que faço para a G. e para não variar, foi feito a partir de material reciclado. 

In my last post I mentioned the blazer G. was wearing in the photoshoot. It is about time to tell you about it. It was made in August, but there has been a lot made in the latest months that wasn't posted at all, because not only have I sewing less, the feeling of taking the photos, editing and posting was missing too. I used, for the fourth time the Phresh Blazer pattern by Winter Wear Designs. This is the third I made for G. and, obviously, it was refashioned. 

A peça original eram umas calças de senhora que eu até gostava bastante, mas eram brancas e eu raramente visto branco em t-shirts, quanto mais em calças. Eu tenho filhos pequenos e mais não é preciso dizer, certo?! Adoro este molde e não me canso de dizer que é daqueles para repetir e ter sempre à mão. Desta vez, usei a opção sem folhos atrás, sem bolsos e manga comprida/normal. Alterei um pouco a manga para que ficasse mais apertada, pois acho a original muito larga para o meu gosto. 

The original piece was a pair of women's pants that I actually liked a lot, but they were white, and I barely wear a white t-shirt, what to say about a pair of pants. I have small children and that tells pretty much all, right? I love this pattern, you already know that, this is one to use over again and a go to pattern. This time, I used the back ruffles free version, no pockets and the normal long sleeve. I adjusted it though, narrowing it a bit since I believe the original is too wide for my taste. 

Adoro ver como esta peça lhe dá um ar de mulherzinha. E uma coisa que me tenho vindo a aperceber, é que adorooooooo fazer casacos e afins. Poderão parecer mais intimadores à partida, mas são muito divertidos e gratificantes de fazer. Já para não falar do facto de geralmente serem das peças mais caras no pronto a vestir, e no feito à mão, não se notar uma diferença tão grande de outros peças diferentes. 

I just love to see how lady like she looks with this on. And one thing I've been noticing latelt, is that I loveeeeee making outter wear and so. They might seem harder at first sight, but they're fun and gratifying to make. Not to mention the fact that they are usually so much more expansive than other pieces in the RTW clothes, but not that much in the handmade items. 


  1. Que fofa Magda!!! Parece mesmo uma senhorita. O blazer está espetacular. Gabo-te a paciência para os casacos!!! Parabéns!!

    1. Obrigado Carla. Gosto mesmo de fazer casacos, ando a pensar num wrap up aqui no blog e tudo (de todos os que já fiz).

  2. Está fantástico! Realmente tens muito jeito para casacos! :-)

    1. Obrigado Patrícia. Gosto mesmo muito de costurar estas peças. =D

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…
