Adelaide Dress | The Cottage Mama

I tested the Adelaide Dress by The Cottage Mama back in February but the lighting was not good enough to proper outdoor photos and indoor photos were a resource solution.  Nevertheless, it’s been quite a while (and this dress already had quite a few wears) and I still haven’t replace the original (indoor) photos – it’s obviously my fault as I always… Continue reading Adelaide Dress | The Cottage Mama

Berlin Coat – Blog Tour

Did you remember the lovely Moiano coat, from Straight Grain, that I made back in May? It’s the perfect jacket to get us through our Mediterranean winters: mild temperatures (usually never bellow +10ºC), wind and a bit of rain as well. Still, as much as I loved it (I would ranked it among one of my all time favorite… Continue reading Berlin Coat – Blog Tour

However, the Swingset Tunic (and Skirt) never went into my shopping cart! Mostly due… Continue reading The [Updated] Swingset Skirt

Kids Clothes Week | Opening act

I hear myself saying it time and time again: I’m okay with making sewing actually happen (as long as I’ve done some prep work). It’s taking pictures (late after the sewing is over and kids are back exhausted from school) and posting about it, that gets me every time.

The Day Off Backpack | Gingercake Patterns

I always spend the last couple of days before our summer holidays trying to get everything ready. As much as I love travelling, packaging is an entirely different story. Especially, when I also have to pack for 3 kids and make sure they take a small amount of toys/books to amuse themselves during the journey.
