My top 5 of 2015 |Misses|

Scroll down for english. 

Agora que já vos mostrei o melhor (quanto a mim) de 2015, vou-vos falar daquilo que ficou aquém do desejado. Se perderam a primeira lista, podem vê-la aqui. 

Now that I have showed you my best (in my opinion) of 2015, I am going to show you what wasn't as good as expected. If you missed the first list, you can check it out here. 

O meu número um da anterior lista, é também o número cinco da presente. Sim, adorei o blazer, foi a minha peça preferida do ano, MAS, foi também uma peça que correu mal num único sentido. Ficou demasiado pequeno à G. e embora tenha tentado resolver o problema, alargando as cavas, de nada adiantou. Apenas o vestiu para as fotos e pronto. Está encostado. 

My number one from the previous list, is also my number five from the present one. Yes, I did love the blazer, it was my favorite piece of the year, BUT, it was algo a piece where one thing only went pretty bad. It was too small for my G. and although I tried to fix the arm holes, it didn't make much difference. She only wore this for the photos, and it was put aside after. 

Estas cuecas. Tinham tudo para correr bem, não tinham? Não, não tinham! Os elasticos na cintura não as seguraram no sítio durante muito tempo e mais uma vez, estas peças ficaram encostadas. 

These briefs. They had everything to go well, right? Well, no, they didn't! The elastic on their waistlines didn't hold them up for too long and once again, the pieces were put aside. 

O casaco, pois claro. Viu-se logo de início que aquela gola ficou horrível, e se teve algum uso foi muito pouco. 

The cardigan, of course. It was clear from the beginning that the collar was beyond horrible, and if it was used, it wasn't a lot. 

As calças. Muito frescas e tal e coiso mas passou-se toda a época quente sem as vestirmos. Não desgostamos nem nada delas, mas aparentemente a G. não tinha nada no guarda fatos de verão dela que combinasse com as calças, e são demasiado leves e frescas para o Outono/Inverno. 

The pants. They are super fresh and so on, but the entire warmer season passed on and it didn't get any use at all. We didn't dislike them, but apparently, G. has nothing to match them in her summer wardrobe, and they are too light and fresh for Autumn/Winter. 

Mais umas calças, ora pois. Adorei fazê-las, mas já na altura adivinhava que não iriam servir durante muito tempo e estava bem certa. A G. vestiu-as duas únicas vezes e pronto. 

Another pair of pants, of course. I loved making this, but I knew from the start that they weren't fit for too long, and boy, was I right? G. wore them twice and that was it. 

Na próxima publicação dos meus top 5, falo-vos dos moldes que usei, testei, etc em 2015, partilhando, claro está, os meus cinco preferidos/mais usados. 

In my next top 5 post, I will tell you about the patterns I used, tested, etc in 2015, giving you, my top 5, most used/favorite ones.

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…
