Fall KCW 2013 might be over, but there’s still a few garments to reveal. The Book Report dress, is a comfortable, casual dress with lots of details (I love the hidden on-seam front pockets) but somehow it never appealed to me (too casual, boxy?!). Yet, I kept admiring all the lovely creations with this pattern in… Continue reading Fall KCW: The Book Report
It’s been quite a while since my last post 😦 As usual, it was not intentional especially because KCW fall 2013 is already on, but for the last couple of weeks work assignments took the best of my time (and energy, to be honest). However, I planned ahead and “got myself a KCW” one week… Continue reading Fall KCW – Kids Clothes Week is here!!
I’ve been a bit absent as during the past few weeks we’ve been adjusting to a new schedule (full-time work and school schedules) and as usual, it hasn’t been easy.

Amazing, right?) Although we live quite… Continue reading DoGuincho Pattern Tour: the Bubble shorts

Although it’s still very hot around here (I don’t think she will be wearing this dress soon …), I’m… Continue reading Another playtime (dress) …
Earlier this month Oliver+S released their fall 2013 patterns and the Playtime dress, tunic and leggings really caught my eyes (of course, it wasn’t the only one, but let’s take them one at a time). Usually, Oliver+S patterns have quite a few (clever) details that take sewing for children into another level, but the Playtime… Continue reading It’s Playtime 🙂
For the last couple of days it’s been raining. The sort of rain that makes you wish for spring and sunny days. While waiting for the sun, I’ve been busy sewing some “in-between” pieces for my girl – clothes that she could wear to school and to play dates and still keep her warm (especially,… Continue reading In-between (wardrobe) …
