Me Made May 2015, I am in!

Me Made May ’15

I, Jasmin, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made or refashioned gament each day for the duration of May 2015!

Leichtes blaues Leinenkleid

What I didn’t do was taking my everyday picture but at least I wore an already documented garment on these days or smuggled in an older pic 😉 Continue reading

Pattern Frenzy: Burdastyle’s Lydia Top

Pattern Frenzy: Lydia Top BurdaStyle

First top I made based on Lydia by BurdaStyle; I added a half Peter Pan collar.

I am known for sticking to one pattern when I found one I really like. That’s exactely the case with Burdastyle’s Lydia Top! It is a quick sew, don’t need a lot of attention and I didn’t need to juggle with the often weird sizes of Burda’s. I just cut the pattern out in my size, shortened it in the middle section because I need to do this with every pattern and tadaaa… it fitted right away! Continue reading
