The Denim Blazer

It’s finished! Or has been a while now, I’ve just been too busy to post anything.
The actual real suit is well on the way too, so all is good so far.

The biggest problem with this was that the fabric is way too bulky. The sleeves also came out a bit less than perfect, which I have to take into consideration while making the actual suit jacket. But other than that, I’m really quite proud of this! Yay! I used a slightly modified version of Burda’s Ehren as the pattern.

I have to admit that there have been times when I regret ever volunteering to do this suit-project, but overall I think it’ll be worth it, especially as a learning experience.

Next week I’ll get some well deserved rest though, as we’re going to Paris!

The First Project of 2013!

Hi!

This is a dress that I’ve been working on for way longer than it should’ve taken, but there was Christmas and then I was ill… so I have my share of excuses. Anyway, voilĂ !

(As you can see, there’s a lot of snow — feel free to draw your own conclusions as to how cold it was and how frozen my hands were)

All the materials for this dress, except the thread, were bought from various thrift stores around Helsinki. All in all, the dress cost me about five euros or so (denim, lining, zipper), which is quite a good deal I think.

The patterns I made myself, based on this sketch I drew back in autumn:

“Every dress has a silver lining” heh heh

 

Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it!
