sweatshirt - burda magazine 01/2017/#102
i changed my serger threads from pink i've been using for ages to royal blue
to make the dress with ruffles
and, those blue threads then inspired
a week of sewing royal blue stuff!
laziness is a funny thing, right?
dress was on my 'list' for a long time
loved the ruffle, which is funny
i don't usually love ruffles
as they're a bit too girly for my style
but this ruffle i liked..
chose a lycra fabric, that has crepe-like texture
and doesn't fray, so the edge of the ruffle could be left 'raw'
i wish i wasn't lazy and did the hem by hand
might get back to it at some point,
but hem aside, it's a great dress
makes me wanna dance my heart out
not a lot of clothes have that power
also, one could argue it's too short
but i think it's fine with tights or leggings
sweater is made out of some sort of
boiled wool knit fabric
that i had in my stash for some time..
it's a very thick fabric, super warm
(and also kinda scratchy
so it's 'only for the brave' kinda sweater)..
it's an easy thing to construct
and i made this one using only serger
i hemmed it by hand, but did that after these photos were taken
so that's why the hem looks wonky
i've also made a hoodie for my friend johnny
don't have a photo of that hoodie
so you'll have to take my word for it,
but i had some leftover fabric after finishing it
and i used it to make this cropped sweatshirt
that my friend greska is wearing in pics bellow
i've also made a pair of pants for a customer
and finished an upholstery project for a friend
both of those were blue as well..
and i actually run out of blue serger thread
after i finished the last one of 'blue period' things yesterday
working on some backpacks at the moment
nikola is helping me with leather parts
and i'm really loving how those are looking so far!
hope to share them with you soon
