My handmade Capri pants

Hallo friends,

I hope your having a great summer vacation. I’ve been busy these whole two months. Finally I finish making my own Capri pants. My sewing teacher did help me make and sew my own pants. I bought here secondhand Bernina sewing machine. My boyfriend and I bought a house at the sea side and are renovating the house in my spear time next to sewing my own clothes.

One reason I started this blog is because I did attend a workshop sewing your own T-shirt somewhere in April and lately I've felt less and less unhappy like buying clothes that doesn’t fit well. So I decided not to buy any new clothes. Actually I am going to make my own clothes, also some vintage patterns I love, and a great items with my own hands so that I can wear them at work or in my free and spear time. Like for instance dresses, pants, skirts, blouses, home and gifts items for myself and for friends.

I love the color black. When I go to work I wear a lot of black clothing or similar colors. Its pretty easy. Basically I wear whatever black stuff I have hanging in my closet. So I am about to change and challenge that through what I am wearing at work, seeing as I spend most of my time in my jogging at the gym- or my pajama clothing at home. But one thing is for sure I always feel very happy wearing the clothing I feel good in.
Furthermore I am inspired by Tilly and the Buttons , Gertie's new blog for better sewing, Handmade by Jane, and So, Zo.. What do you know? These ladies do know what they are talking about when it comes to sewing your own clothes and giving some very good ideas and advise.

This Capri pants I created for myself (from a pattern from Burda) with the help from my sewing teacher:

At this moment I am working on / or about to start sewing a beach/summer bag and a skirt.Will post the pictures as soon as I have a chance.

My Mother's Singer machine

"My mother's color of the Singer sewing machine was Black, and I can still remember watching her pushing those pedals. She made nearly all my school and church dresses/skirts back then with music from The Carpenters, Skeeter Davis and Diana Ross and the supremes in the background. She taught me to read while she sewed". That was the good old days back then....

Mijn Chanel jasje

Hallo allemaal,

Onlangs heb ik samen met mijn naaister een chanel jasje ontworpen en genaaid. Daarna hebben we de spelden aan het Chanel jasje met de hand gespeld. Dat Roze Chanel jasje heb ik gezien op eBay en dacht ik ga zo'n jasje ontwerpen en laten naaien. Ik moet eerlijk zeggen "Ik ben er super blij mee" .
De Bernina naaimachine heb ik van mijn naai-juf overgekocht die mij leert hoe ik broeken,rokken en jurken in elkaar moet maken/naaien.

Op dit moment ben ik bezig met het maken van mijn capri broek. De patronen zijn in de maakt en over een maand laat ik jullie mijn broek zien.
