linjetegning knifepleat skirtI have finally made my first project for the “patternmaking basics” class with Suzy Furrer at The class is very technical and informative. Maybe not for a total beginner, but very nice for those who want to develop their understanding for patterns and pattern drafting. I am really not that much into pattern drafting, but I do want good results with the things that I sew. I have finally understood that to get good results with sewing patterns it is a big plus to understand them and their construction. So, here I am, working myself SLOWLY through the theory part. Resisting and seeking knowledge at the same time….. 🙂 :-/

Rose petals for summer! I LOVE Comfort and to be able to move in my clothes, so I had to try out these Pleats.forran


Of course I had to add some Pockets. This time I inserted simple “bag Pockets” in  the sides.lommer
