My boyfriend´s Grandma brought some sewing things for me she had at home. I think this is so nice of her. Got some fabric you can use for grocery bags, thread, lace, trims and needle cases. I love the lace. It´s perfect for my silk projects.

Online shopping

I was a bad girl and did a bit of online shopping. And of course there are some patterns.


Can´t wait for the 40s dress from Vogue to come. Maybe I will buy fabric for it tomorrow. The Wearing History pattern was just too cute. And I think I can adapt this into a blouse and maybe a dress as well. The Patrones is a special summer issue. I hope I can find some nice dress patterns there. The 70s pattern I want to use for a ballet leotard with matching skirt and maybe some shirts.

And I ordered two metres of real silk fabric to make some cute undergarments. I am really a bad girl.

I am not so much in a sewing mood right now. Maybe it is the weather. One day it is too hot the other when the sun is not shining I am somewhat lazy. I am so sorry for that. And this with all the ideas in my mind.

Vintage Patterns: The 60s


McCall's 5507 - Already made this, but was not very satisfied. It didn´t fit right and all in all it was not my style. Maybe if I am a bit older.

Butterick 3079 - I could imagine this in a light fabric for summer. Hope to make this soon.

Simplicity 3949 - Again a maternity pattern. I think this is so cute and you can wear it even if you are not pregnant.

Butterick 4699 - Made this already and I have to say it looks not so good in real. Maybe I can rock this with a belt. Want to try this soon.

Simplicity 8144 - My first vintage pattern I bought some years ago and never made. It´s cute and I could imagine to wear this, but somehow at the moment I am not very excited about it.

Shopping Trip


I know, I didn´t want to buy nail polish, but this nautical edition of P2 was just too cute. I really like the blue and can imagine an outfit with this two colors (already have plans for a matching dress). The brush was on sale and I am really surprised how well it works.
