Billie Jeans |Momma Quail Patterns|

Scroll down for english, please!

Lembram-se das Walker Jeans que testei e mostrei o mês passado? Pois bem, na altura, o molde era para ter incluído uma versão skinny mas que foi colocada de parte pela designer. E ainda bem que ela o fez e se concentrou num molde à parte para essa versão porque acabou por ficar excelente. Foi assim que nasceu, e acaba de ser lançado pela Momma Quail Patterns, o novo molde, Billie Jeans.

Do you remember the Walker Jeans I tested and shared about a month ago? Well, back then, the pattern was initially going to contain a skinny option too, but it was put aside by the designer during the test. And that's great that she did so, and concentrated in making a whole new pattern for this option, because it turned out excellent. That's how the new Billie Jeans pattern were born and just released by Momma Quail Patterns

Desta vez juntei-me ao teste já numa fase adiantada, por isso, as peças que fiz, já foi com o molde melhorado. Hoje mostro apenas um par, mas na verdade fiz dois, um para cada um dos meus miúdos. Costurei-os ao mesmo tempo para fazer render o tempo em que apanho os miúdos a dormir. Para este par, reciclei umas skinnies de mulher. Consegui aproveitar ao máximo as calças originais e só cortei outros retalhos para o saco dos bolsos e para a parte de dentro da banda da cintura, um amarelo torrado/mostarda - cada vez mais apaixonada por esta cor, precisamente igual ao de uma blusa que ele tem (e que veste nas fotos). Felizmente tinha também molas KAM quase na mesma cor, são um pouco mais claras mas mal se nota, certo? 

This time around, I joined the test when it was well advanced already, and that's why my pieces were made with one improved pattern already. Today I am only sharing one pair, but I have actually made two, one for each of my kids. I sewed them at the same time for good time managements as the kids were sleeping. For this pair I refashioned a women's skinny jeans. I was able to use the most of the original pants and only needed other scraps for the pocket bags and for the waistband lining, for which I used a dark yellow/mustard - more and more in love with this color, exactly like the shirt he is wearing in this photos. Luckily enough, I had KAM snaps in the same color, or close, they are a little lighter, but you can barely tell, right?

Fiz o tamanho 18M para o S., das duas opções de corte (skinny e slim - direitas), escolhi as skinny, e dentro das várias alturas, optei pelo comprimento até ao tornozelo. Ficaram um bocadito longas nele, já é normal e eu já sabia que assim seria, mas optei por não ajustar a altura, o tecido tem boa elasticidade e ele tem crescido muito ultimamente, por isso mantive assim, ficam com uma altura dita normal, na esperança de servirem por mais tempo. Em comparação com o molde Walker Jeans, gosto mais da forma como estas assentam, apesar de também adorar as anteriores. O que acham?

I made size 18M for S., from the two fit options (skinny and slim) I went for the skinny one, and chose ankle lenght out of several onoes to pick from. They are slightly long for him, it's normal, I knew that would happen, but I didn't care to shorten the lenght because the fabric has a good stretch, and he's been growing fast lately, so I kept them like this, with a regular lenght, hoping they will last longer. Comparing to the Walker Jeans, I like this one's fit better, although I really like those too. What do you think?

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.

I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.

So, the first thing you have to do is…

The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
