Am I the only one who wants to go back to the Spice Girls and wear tops with high-waisted trousers again? And where are my platform-shoes??

--- christmas blouse ---

I'm quite sure my both grandma's would have loved my christmas outfit this year! Yes, I'm traveling back in time lately...
The pattern is the same as the brown chiffon blouse, except the sleeves. That's why it only costed me one evening to sew it :) The collar and the sleeve openings are made of fake-fur.

made from this straight sleeve-pattern a "bishop sleeve"

--- s s sewfreak ---

Sewing isn't freaky, it's sewperfreaky!

My history: I started sewing about four years ago by making a pair of underpants out of an old t-shirt (why god, why!). It was not wearable at all.. After this first disappointment I became really motivated and started making shirts, skirts and trousers. First ones without zippers, pockets, collars or anything "difficult". Now, I'm still learning how to make clothes, but I can finally wear my own clothes without people looking at the crooked seams.. They only stare at my freaky appearance! And yes, that's a step forward!

So, are you a sewfreak too? Let's start a freakshow later! But first: Leave A Comment!
