The Best of the Week #19

First of all, a big thank you for all the lovely comments on my swing dress… They really made my day Stephanie drafted the pattern for this blouse herself and I think it couldn’t look better! A beautiful shirtdress in a lovely colour by Janet. Freya shared a very interesting article on how to start your own business. …

Swing dress the REAL Showing Party

Yes, I kinda messed up last week: Casey had postponed the final party and I hadn’t read about it. So, here are a couple more shots of my dress. I hope I’ll be able to wear it without a cardigan and tights soon… After three days of non-stop rain, it’s finally sunny today! 🙂 Even though …

Raffle at Nettevivante for Japan

Nette has organized a ruffle to win this gorgeous blouse. All you have to do is to make a donation for the Japan earthquake. I think it’s truly a great idea, I encourage you to participate. Go to her blog to get the details.

Interview/ Intervista: Gervaise, Creazioni di Stoffa

A few days ago I got in touch with Sophie, whose creations for the brand Gervaise I’ve always loved. She was kind enough to answer a few questions about her and her creations. (Il testo italiano è in fondo) 1 – Introduce yourself: tell us something about where you live, your origins, hobbies, etc. My name is Sophie, …


Burda 04/2011 : My Eyes Hurt

Oh my God! So much ugly stuff in this upcoming issue… I’m starting to wonder WHY I got a subscription. This magazine is taking a turn I really really don’t like. Give us Anne Burda back! And what is this? I admit there are also a couple patterns that picked my interest, but nothing too …

The Best Of The Week #12

Link time! 1. Spring skirts at Sweet Pie Bakery. There’s a great tutorial that I’d like to try. 2. A very interesting post on sewing magazines at Sewing and Style Den. I wish I knew portoguese to buy Manequim! 3. I love this tulle skirt I saw at Burdastyle. 4. Super cute dress by L’Atelier. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I think I’m in love…     If you like it, make sure to watch the collection film because it’s lovely! Also, the blouse at the bottom left reminds me of something Nette did a while ago. Nice!

The best of the week

I think I’ll copy this dress by Sarah sooner or later… Too cute! Gertie never stops to inspire me (and I love her new hairdo). Erica has started a new challenge, for which she’ll wear more skirts and dresses. Nice! Speaking of challenges, Zoe has started Me Made March. I don’t feel ready to participate …

Mondo Guerra week

Inspiration: Mondo Guerra Fall 2011 Collection

Do you watch Project Runway? I’m addicted to that show! If you do watch it, then you’ll probably already know Mondo Guerra. He was one of Season 8 finalists and he lost after a very controversial decision of the judges. I really like Gretchen Jones’ creations as well, but I would have liked to see him win …

The Best of the Week #25

Hi guys, how was your week? I caught a very annoying cold (I guess I’m getting too old to go to bed with wet hair) but I’m better and I’m hoping to get lots of sewing done this weekend. 1. Sherry says this dress is unnecessary, but it’s so beautiful! Plus, she provided great explations on the …
