After jacket and coat

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my coat. I thought it was special, and you certainly confirmed that feeling. I’ll show you the coat on me when it’s ready. Might take a week or two,still haven’t got lining.

The jacket has had more progress in the last days, and will take about one evening to finish. Somewhere this week I hope.

Time to think of the next projects. In summer I thought I would make a few “capsule” plans, 4 or 5 garments that would go together. For the moment I’ve given up on the idea of a real plan, and will sew what comes to my mind and what I fancy at a particular moment.

This will be my next projects:

Hotpatterns 3 graces shirt. I confess I already did some work on these yesterday. More on my experiences with this pattern later.

This blouse from the September Burda magazine attracted my attention from the start and after seeing  lovely versions on PR, this is high on my to sew list.

And I’ve bought myself some new lingerie fabrics at Kantje boord. For the first set they even had applique lace for the shoulderstraps. How special. After a recent cleaning out of my lingerie drawer, I need to make a few new sets. Nice in between projects.


  1. Lovely fabric. I can't wait to see your new lingerie sets.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics! Thanks for reminding me that I want to make that Burda top too. It's perfect for those wool jersey fabrics I bought when you were here. I'll have to trace that one out.

  3. OOh la la! I like the idea of a "real plan" too!

  4. You have some interesting projects planned. The lingerie lace is just beautiful.

  5. Cannot wait to see the lingerie sets, love the fabric & notions!
