year nine

this morning i realized it's the 9th anniversary 
of this little blog of mine
and my first thought was that i haven't made much stuff
so there won't be much to blog about..
yet, somehow i keep digging up more and more pics
so, turns out, it wasn't such a shabby year after all
i made some dresses

discovered culottes

made me a boilersuit
and plan to sew more of these
as it turned out i love to wear it

i finished my coat
that has been half made and abandoned for a year..
haven't taken it off since
it's my favorite thing ever

finished knitting my stonecutter sweater
and then wore it only once
as winter never came

started going to the gym
so i've been making lot of activewear
that i'm failing to properly photograph..
but in total i made 7 pairs of leggings
5 sports bras (all made using mighty sports bra pattern by evie la luve
as the one pictured bellow)
and 4 tops

and i made a raincoat of sorts
that is also a part of my activewar gear
as i needed something windproof to wear 
when i head home from gym, all sweaty and what not..
i love it, but i need to change that hood
as it's ridiculously huge

i made my new favorite backpack
(free pattern called 'der andere rucksack')
that i've since made again
and have couple more cut and ready to assemble.. 

almost a year ago
our landlord finally let us use that one spare room 
that he keeps his stuff in
so now we have our little sewing studio in the apartment
which has made sewing much easier
and our living room is finally free from sewing clutter
(but sadly not so free from all the other random stuff
that we keep piling up, but i digress)

back to sewing.. i made some stuff for my store 


 lots of sweaters too

other than sewing
we tried to take some time to enjoy and explore
so this year baby had her first camping and mountain climbing trips

first seaside holiday

and experienced her first snow

so, yeah.. not too shabby at all


  1. Ma'am, you made more than a few fabulous dresses. That maxi sundress, the polkadot raglan one and that twist front one are divine. And that boilersuit? 😍😍😍😍 Making it in all black was a brilliant idea. The rucksack is the cutest thing ever! Well, second only to your cute little one. Hope she had enjoyed her first camping trip as that must have been interesting.

    1. thanks :) i really got surprised by number of things i made in the end, as all i've been doing recently was bitching about not having enough time to sew..
      and, to our delight, she really enjoyed camping, she even slept better in a tent than she did at home, and during that week in montenegro two of her teeth cut through..

  2. Looks like you had an amazing year of sewing. You've honed your craft and reaping the benefits with many fabulous garments. Love the camping and mountain shots. Wishing you the best for year 10.

    1. thanks :) i'm hoping to be way more productive in year 10, as little one should start going to daycare at some point, so i'll have more time to do all the other stuff (currently i only have a nap time, or evenings, but i'm too tired to sew most evenings)

  3. you have been busy - gorgeous makes and thank you for the mention of the rucksack pattern - looked it up and will be giving it a try

    1. thanks.. sorry i did not put the link, to make it easier to find that pattern.. it's absolutely fabulous pattern, and instructions are so great that i made it only by looking at pics (had to use google translate only for one step).. there is also a variation with different front pocket, simple zipper pocket, my second version is made like that and i love it even more

  4. i like the first style! i also want to try!
    great post!
