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
http://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/ , Gertie's new blog for better sewing http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/, Handmade by Jane  http://handmadejane.blogspot.nl/, and So, Zo.. What do you know? http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.nl/. 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.
