New Pattern Alert: the Bella Bralette and Cami

Scroll down for english, please!


Há muito tempo que eu andava cheia de vontade de experimentar a fazer um soutien para mim, e a culpa disso deve-se muito à Susana, que me deixou com a pulguinha atrás da orelha quando a conheci pessoalmente em Fevereiro (a sério que daqui a nada faz um ano?!) e me mostrou o seu. Era também o seu primeiro e ela estava tão entusiasmada que me contagiou.

I have been meaning to try and sew myself a bra for a while, I blame it on Susana, she was the one who made the sparkle start when I met her in person back in February (has it really been that long?) and she showed me hers. It was her first too and she was so excited about me that I got carried away too. 


No entanto a vontade permaneceu por cá mas sem nunca surgir a oportunidade de fazer um para mim, até que há algumas semanas deparei-me com um tester call da Jo (Day Dream Patterns) para o seu novo molde Bella Bralette & Cami e sentindo-me motivada lá tentei a minha sorte. Foi à Susana que encomendei a minha renda, linda e tão suave!

Although I wanted to do it I haven't found the oportunity to make one though, until I got across a tester call from Jo (Day Dream Patterns) a few weeks ago, it was for the her new pattern Bella Bralette & Cami and feeling motivated I applied. It was also from Susana that I ordered my lace, so beatiful and soft! 


Adoro o meu novo bralette, por inteiro. Fiquei encantada com o resultado final - afinal isto foi uma novidade para mim - e não me canso de olhar tanto o exterior como o interior, pois também este está com acabamentos tão pro, que dão gosto. Além de que dá suporte, sem o desconforto dos arames. Ando rendida aos bralettes (só tenho mais um, que por acaso comprei uns dias antes de terminar este). E é engraçado como não sinto a falta das copas com enchimento como me habituei a usar, a Susana já me tinha dito isso (ambas temos peito pequeno e conversámos sobre isso), mas eu tinha cá as minhas dúvidas. Miúda, se me lês: estavas certa!!!

I love my new bralette, completely. I was delighted with the final result - after all, this was new to me - and I can't get enough of staring at it, not only from outside, as inside too, since it looks so good and so professionally done, so good. Besides it has a good support it has, even without wires. I have surrendered to bralettes (I onlt have another one I bought just a couple of days before I made my own). And it is funny how I don't miss my usually worned padded cups, Susana had told me that before (we talked about it since we both have small breasts), but I had my doubts. Well girl, if you're reading this: you were right!


Quanto ao molde, tem 25 números e apresenta 3 opções diferentes, esta que fiz que é cruzado na frente, depois há a opção em V e também o cami que pode ser usado em qualquer uma das versões anteriores. A frente é toda forrada com bonitos acabamentos que não deixam costuras visíveis. Agora que olho para a foto da parte de trás do meu, vejo que poderia ter centrado o padrão da renda, nabice pura, nem pensei muito nisso quando cortei. De qualquer forma, já tenho outro cortado na mesa de trabalho, à espera de acabar as costuras loucas de pré natal para o terminar. 

As for the pattern, it comes in 25 sizes, and has 3 different options, the plunge neckline which is the one I made, then there's the V-neckline and also the cami, which you can add to any of the previous options. The front cups are completely lined with nice finishings and no raw edgwa visible. And now that I actually took a good look at my back photo, I realised I could have centered my lace pattern, bahh, I haven't even think of that when cutting. Anyway, I already have another one on my working table, just waiting for the crazy before christmas sewing to be done, to get finished too.

  1. Adoro o teu bralette! Ficou perfeito, mesmo lindo. Parabéns! É engraçado como deixamos de sentir necessidade de usar sempre copas almofadadas. Basta fazer um soutien que assenta perfeitamente e é bonito, e ficamos logo a sentir-nos bem!

    1. Obrigado Susana. Eu não diria perfeito mas ficou melhor do que eu esperava, principalmente depois daquele bloqueio todo.. Heheh
      Mesmo porque as copas por vezes nã assentam nada bem( não é?! Conforto acima de tudo, é o que eu acho.

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…
