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!

After I had a lot of fun with Me Made May last year, I decided to take part again. My personal challenge is (still) to add more colour to my mostly black wardrobe but you may see, so far the only other colour I managed to add is (off-)white… LOL! Continue reading


Blue Linen Apron Dress

Leichtes blaues Leinenkleid

Way back in July I made this awesome Linen Dress that I couldn’t get out all over the rest of summer. Unfortunately now it’s a tad too cold, I should have a look around for a decent matching cardigan or even make one myself. I’ve never made a cardigan, that would be a goal for chilly but still mild autumn days to come. Continue reading

Fabric Hoarding

Als hätte ich nicht schon genug Stoffe… nein, am Samstag kamen noch 4 neue dazu… ich konnte halt nicht anders! Bei Karstadt ist doch Schlussverkauf!

As if I hadn’t enough fabric… my gluttony never ends! Just got 4 new additions to my already enormous stash… I just needed them!


Grüne Polka-Dot Sommerbaumwolle | Green Polka Dot Summer Cotton; pastellfarbener Georgette, der soooo derart original aussschaut… wie hätte ich den liegenlassen sollen?  | pastel-coloured Georgette – instant 60s, right?; ein herrlich lilafarbenes Leinen-BW-Poly-Gemisch in der Art von 70er Jahre-Knitterblusen (weiß die Stoffbezeichnung leider nicht, sorry) | some kind of 70s linen-coton-polyester mix in an absolutely adorable purple; und schließlich das schwarze Must-Have, ein transparenter Chiffon mit Samtblütenaufdruck | and last but not least a velvety flowers-printed chiffon in black.
