    #throwbackthursday #1 Lora Dress – La Maison Victor

    Hello everybody! New post today with a little throwback thursday : may I present you the famous Lora Dress, by the Belgian pattern magazine La Maison Victor. Like many sewers on Instagram, I discovered this pattern and this magazine thanks to the beautiful versions sewed by Alicia from l’Atelier d’Alicia. I had such a big crush on her green one that when I went to Mondial Tissu the next time, I bought the same dark green crêpe fabric (I also got some of the red one, which I used for my New Girl dress!). About the pattern This pattern had quite a success, although it’s true that the version showed in the magazine wasn’t really dreamy. This is…

    #throwbackthursday #2 – Shorts Aime comme Manège by Aime comme Marie

    Hello everyone ! It is going to be a very short article today, to show you my version of the Aime comme Manège high waisted shorts, by the pattern company Aime comme Marie. I had a big crush on the presentation version made by the designer, in a multicoloured jacquard. As the pattern is a 12 pages PDF which only costs 4 euros, I didn’t hesitate for long. Also, I had some left-over of this wonderful zebra jacquard by Pretty mercerie, which I had used for the skirt of my “La Parisienne” dress. It was perfect to test this pattern which doesn’t consume much fabric. I made the shorts last summer,…

    PATTERN HACKING – Lila Skirt by Wear Lemonade

    (translation to come) Hello everyone! J’inaugure une nouvelle catégorie sur le blog, celle consacrée aux “Patterns Hacking”, un des trucs que je préfère en couture ! Le Pattern Hacking, qu’est-ce que c’est ? Pour ceux qui ne parlent pas encore couture couramment, le Pattern Hacking, c’est quand on part d’un patron existant, et qu’on le modifie pour ajouter ou enlever des détails et aboutir à un vêtement un peu différent de celui imaginé par le créateur. Ce que j’aime avec la couture, c’est le fait de pouvoir se coudre les vêtements que l’on veut, même s’ils n’existent pas déjà fait.. Déjà, avant, quand je faisais du shopping et que je ne savais pas coudre,…
