Very warm welcome to my blog! It happened so that in addition to all proper life activities, like full time job and time with the family, I learnt to sew and can’t stop ever since. I am writing posts more or less every two weeks, so make sure to subscribe for updates and come back for more!

I’ve wanted to make a shacket since last year, however somehow other projects would end up being prioritized. Having as many ideas and plans as I do, for the project to be prioritized is quite a thing! 🙂 There were few shacket patterns that have been lined up on my list, however the main missingContinue reading “Cozy plaid shacket”
This project is a continuation of my recent idea to remake and upcycle those earlier garments that I did not get to love or wear much. It is hopefully a coincidence that I’ve recently upcycled jumpsuits – I hope the time will come for new jumpsuits to get made and loved. This time around I’veContinue reading “Upcycled wool skirt”
This was an amazing and challenging project! It’s been two years in progress, and finally I’ve managed to crack on it!

And so I figured that it was a sign forContinue reading “Upcycled leather skirt”
My sewing plans
When I started sewing, the most magical power seemed to be the ability to make a dress. Before that, at any point in time I had only few dresses and found shopping for dresses being a tormenting exercise. And here I was – able to make any dress that came to my mind! So that was what was happening – many dresses were made. However, lately I realized that I do not wear dresses all that often – some of me-made dresses have never been worn. So I slowly came to the conclusion that it is actually everything else that I need so much more than a load of dresses.
With summer slowly coming to an unwanted end, I try to stay optimistic with my autumn/winter collection plans 🙂 I started by making few autumn skirts, and this somehow turned into a very nice trend as I’m planning few more skirts shortly. It is somewhat unexpected as it is quite rare that I’d wear skirts. But that’s perhaps due to me not owning nice skirts before. And now this can easily be mitigated! In addition to skirts I’m of course planning a coat or two, a jacket or two, so yeah – regular colder season fashion joys!
