Há muito tempo que não dava notícias por aqui, não é verdade? Entre a correria do fim do verão e do ter voltado a trabalhar, embora a meio tempo, pouco espaço tem sobrado para as costuras. No entanto, não há nada como um teste a um molde chamativo para me fazer voltar ao ativo (ah, entretanto também fiz esta blusa que partilhámos há uns dias no Cose+). 

Long time no seen, right? Between summer's end eclectic life and being back to work, even though part-time, has left a little space for sewing around here. Despite all that, there's nothing like an appealing pattern test call to get me back on track (oh, and I also made this shirt we shared a few days ago over at Cose+). 


O teste que vos falo acima, foi para a Kennis dos moldes Itch to Stitch, e é o molde Bonn Shirt and Dress. Aproveitem os 20% de desconto do lançamento do molde (hoje) e ainda 15% de desconto na conta final se comprarem dois ou mais moldes. E que tenho eu a contar-vos sobre o novo molde? Bem, para começar é super versátil, já que dá para costurar para qualquer época/estação do ano graças às suas quatro opções de mangas, e as opções de vestido ou camisa. Como podem ver, eu fiz a versão manga curta e acho que o corte ficou na altura ideal. 

The test I am talking about was for Kennis, from Itch to Stitch, and the pattern is the Bonn Shirt and Dress. It will be 20% off for the release (today) and also, 15% off the cart if purchasing any 2 or more patterns.And what do I have t say about it? Well, to start it is super versatile, since you can sew it for any season of the year, thanks to its four different sleeve lenght options, and the dress or shirt option. As you can see, I did the short sleeves and I think they are cut just the right lenght. 


Gostei imenso do corte e de como assenta nos vários tipos de corpo (espreitem as versões das testers que vão aparecendo hoje por ai), e isso que eu nem sou muito rapariga de camisas com botões, mas gostei tanto desta mal vi o desenho técnico que não quis ficar de fora. Valeu a pena. Só penso que deveria ter escolhido um número acima, já que as minhas medidas batiam entre os dois mais pequenos (00 e 0). A camisa serve-me, mas fica muito justa, quando a intenção era ser uma camisa mais casual e descontraída. É por isso que quero mesmo fazer outra, assim que o tempo mo permita. 

I especially liked the shape of this shirt, and how it fits the different body types (check out all the testers versions that will be poping up today), and that's from someone who's not so much into button up shirts. I really liked this one though, as soon as I saw the technical drawing on the test call, I knew I wouldn't want to be out. It was worth it. I only think I just have picked a bigger size, since my measurements were right between the smaller sizes (00 and 0). The shirt fits me right, but it is too tight comparing to its intentional more casual and relaxed fit. That's why I really want to make another one as soon as I get the time to sew it. 


Para quem não conhece os moldes Itch to Stitch, tenho que vos alertar para o fato da Kennis ser uma excelente profissional, e os seus moldes são de grande qualidade. Para além dos seus moldes, não deixem de visitar o seu blog para tutoriais variados que vos serão bem utéis. Voltando ao molde, ele apresenta-se nos números 00 ao 20, e com copas A, B, C, D e DD, com indicações em como ajustar a blusa em altura para as mais altas, ou as mais baixinhas como eu. Por exemplo, eu deveria ter tirado alguma altura à minha camisa, coisa que farei na certa na próxima vez. 

If you don't know Itch to Stitch patterns yet, let me tell you that Kennis is an excellent professional, and they are high quality patterns. Besides her patterns, please check her blog for the most useful tutorials. Back to the pattern, it comes in sizes 00 - 20, with A, B, C. D and DD cups, with instructions on how to add or take lenght for the taller or the shorter ones. In my case, I will have to take some inches off next time, which I haven't this time.

** Ah! E quase me esquecia, este tecido maravilhoso, lindo e leve e que eu adorei assim que o vi e mais ainda depois de o trabalhar com tanta facilidade, foi oferta da Sara, do blog Made by Sara. Sou uma sortuda, não sou? Têm-me oferecido tecidos lindos, e eu tenho maior prazer em trabalhá-los e apresentar as peças feitas com eles aqui no blog. 

** OH! Almost forgot to mention, but this wonderful, beautiful and light fabric I loved as soon as I put my eyes on, and even more after easily working it, was a gift from Sara, from MAde by Sara. I am such a lucky one, ain't I? I've been giving the most gorgeous fabrics and it is such an enormous pleasure to work them up and show the final items here on the blog.

  1. Muito gira! Eu vi o tester call, mas passei porque já tenho alguns moldes muito semelhantes. Mas tens razão, os moldes são muito bons. Fica-te lindamente e não acho que esteja justa. Assenta-te na perfeição e conseguiste um look bastante casual. Bjs

    1. Obrigado Diana! Confesso que me inscrevi mais depressa por ser um molde da Kennis. A blusa fica-me bem, justa qb, mas não é o look que a designer procurava, mais larguinha e confortável. Quando cruzo os braços, por exemplo, sinto-a apertar um pouco nos ombros. beijimhos

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…

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…
