Something white

English Nederlands

After my wash-disaster beginning of February in which I lost a couple of lin gerie sets I made some new sets. (to minimize unwanted visitors I add spaces in words so that the subject is not found easily, on Stitchers guild there were unwanted personal messages sometime ago when a certain subject was mentioned in the forum, luckily I was not the recipient of those, and don't want to be either).

As it looks like a lot of work, it's actually something that you can sew bit by bit. This one I sewed in a span of two weeks, but actually sewed in periods of 15 minutes at a time.

How about this detail?

Na mijn was-ongeluk begin februari waarin ik een aantal lin gerie setjes kwijt raakte, heb ik wat nieuws gemaakt. (Om ongenode bezoekers van mijn weblog en reacties zoveel mogelijk te vermijden voeg ik af en toe een spatie toe in een woord, zodat het onderwerp niet te makkelijk buiten het zelfmaak wereldje gevonden wordt).

Het lijkt veel werk om een b h zelf te maken, maar dat valt erg mee. Deze heb ik in een periode van 2 weken gemaakt, maar in kleine stapjes van steeds zo'n 15 minuten.

Wat vind je van het detail hieronder?


  1. Gorgeous! Where do you buy the fabrics for your lingerie?

  2. Heel erg leuk. En zo netjes ook!
    Mooi hoor.

  3. So lovely! I *love* the little accent in the center.

  4. It's so lovely! I have no idea what the detail would be called, personnally I would say a "broche". I'm admirative of you being able to sew lin gerie.

  5. Lovely lace and I too am curious about the center accent. Did you notice the article on the Threads site written by a former commercial designer? You and she both have me thinking more about the little additions which are so important.

  6. You make AMAZING lin gerie (don't know if comments are tracked too?) I too wonder where you get such fab supplies. 'course since you're in Europe who knows if they're available to us in the states.

  7. I am terribly impressed. I can't imagine tackling this type of item. This is truly beautiful.

  8. Where did you get that amazing lace? Did you have to go to Belgium? I've no idea where I could get lace that beautiful. Your lin gerie is lovely. I am impressed and jealous!

  9. Beautiful. That jewel-like detail on the center front is gorgeous!

  10. Another beautiful creation, Sigrid! I love the lace. Well done.

How to sew a sleeveless top with facings

How lovely to read the nice comments on my jacket. Grumpy without coffee commented that the original artist for the cartoon (which apparently was for books) was Sarah Andersen. Thank you for mentioning it. Beckster asked about the way I closed the center back seam of the lining. I did it by machine. She also said “Although I have not tried it, I have been told that the lining can be made by using the pattern minus the seam allowance and facings.” Well, certainly not without seam allowances, it should be without hem and without the facings. Important is that you have about 5 cm hem in the jacket for this to work. And I would always make a center back pleat. It gives you space to move without the lining pulling on the fabric. Next time I make a jacket I will try to make photos of the process of bagging the lining (Patsijean said she would have liked to see them and probably more would be interested). Might take a while though, see the end of this post.-----------------------------I mad…

Dress Burda June 2018, construction picture

Once in a while a pattern shows up in a magazine that I want to make immediately. This Burda dress from the June issue is one of those.It’s mainly the linedrawing that’s interesting, as the fabric they used for the magazine issue is not really showing the design lines. There would have been better accent options for the piping they uses. If you’re like me and in general don’t look at the Burda instructions but do it by experience or your way anyhow, DON’T go on autopilot with this one. Sleeveless dress: I close shoulder seams at the last possible moment. Not here, as you have to sew the bias band in between the center and side parts. The band has no seam (and I wouldn’t add one, too many layers of fabric), so the shoulder has to be sewn earlier than I’m used to.Darts: I was inclined to sew all darts as first step and realised really just in time that the front dart is taking up the edge of the band. Front and back band! I was stupified why the angle of the band was not matching the si…

Hilarious description

This week I bought the January Burda issue and browsing through it this top, and especially its description had my attention. Written by someone who has no understanding of modern, functional fabrics and never goes to the gym. Don’t know whether it’s the same in the English issue of the magazine, but in Dutch it says “Sport shirts often have the disadvantage to be close fitted.  This restricts your movement. Our suggestion: make this shirt with a full draped back.“I didn’t care to check their description of sports shirts they published before, but thought this one was hilarious.Off to trace a pattern from this magazine (not this one).
