Maxi dress for summer

The forecast said that it would be +28 degrees next week. So it was a good motivation to finish a maxi dress for summer that I had started several weeks ago. The jersey fabric fits perfect to this pattern and I am very satisfied with the result. Now - let's see if the forecast has got it right about the weather!

Small presents

I had fun making those small presents to my pen pals: a needle cushion, a small bag (to keep cosmetics or jewelery in it) and set of hand stamped writing papers.

I was making some jewelery another night. The white necklace is crocheted with small beads. I was actually thinking to give it to my mother as Mothers Day present but I could not finish it in time, unfortunately. But I will give it to her now, anyway:)

Summer can arrive

My wardrobe for summer has got two new shirts. I crocheted an upper part to one of them and attached some small confetti on the crocheted "flowers" (that is probably difficult to see but they are there:)).

Needle cushion for sewing machine

Today I sewed something that I should have sewed already ages ago: a needle cushion for sewing machine.

Dress in retro style

I have been in big sewing mood these days, using up some "old" fabrics I have had at home but also shopping for some new fabrics. Another day I saw that lovely brown and white polyester fabric at shop and I knew at once I wanted to sew a dress in retro style out of it. So at home I was looking through some old handicraft magazines and I found a perfect pattern from 1972.
