EYMM Off the shoulder Tour

Scroll down for english, please!

Sinto que passei o ano a queixar-me da falta de motivação que andei a sentir durante tanto tempo. No entanto - e apesar dos posts no blog não acompanharem, noto como a minha vontade de costurar tem sido maior que a vontade de procrastinar qualquer criação. Uma das últimas coisas que costurei e que vos venho mostrar hoje é este vestido. O molde é o Off the Shoulder Dress and Peplum Top da EYMM. 

I feel like I've spent the year complaining of lake of sewing motivation. However - and although the posts on the blog aren't mirroing it, I see like my will to sew has been bigger than my procrastination skills. One of the latest things I sewed is thid dress I am sharing today. It is the Off the Shoulder Dress and Peplum Top by EYMM. 

Apesar de só precisar do meu número, gosto que os moldes EYMM tenham tantos números à escolha, vão do XS ao 5X, no meu caso, usei o mais pequeno claro. As opções são muitas, temos o peplum que é mais curto, tipo túnica, e no vestido existem duas alturas à escolha, pelo joelho ou abaixo do joelho. Como sou baixa tirei uns bons centímetros do meu e deixei a bainha por fazer, intencionalmente. A linha da cintura também pode ser personalizada por existirem duas opções diferentes no molde. 

Even though I only need my size, of course, I like that EYMM's patterns come in such a good size range, they go from XS to 5X, in my case I did the smaller one. The options are many, we have the peplum lenght and two dress lenghts, above the knee and below knee. I did the shortest and cut a few more centimeter off because I am short, I also left the raw edge intentionally. The waist line can also be personalized, you have two lenghts to do so.

A saia podia ser circular ou franzida na cintura, e eu que sou como as miúdas pequeninas e gosto de ver um vestido com roda, escolhi a primeira opção. Entre as mangas compridas ou a 3/4, escolhi novamente a primeira opção. Já que o vestido tem esta gola tão grande não me fazia sentido fazer as mangas a 3/4, tão quentinha em cima e depois os braços de fora? Nahhh, não é para mim. Aproveito para vos falar da gola, que se mantem sempre bonitinha com as pregas costuradas nos lados. 

There's two options for the skirt, gathered and circle. I went with the latest because just like little girls I love some good twirl. My choice fell on the long sleeves against the 3/4 sleeves. Those just didn't seem good enough for me. With that huge warm cowl, and my arms out... Nope, not for me. And by the way, that beautiful cowl always lays perfectly thanks to the pleats on the sides.

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…
