Xmas and doubts

The girls requested a nightgown for Xmas. They got what they wished for in the colors and fabric they requested.


Doubts arose when I wanted to take pictures for the blog, should I still blog about the things we make? So many items have not been posted as we have no time, the kids don't want to model them or by the time I want to take pictures they are already starting to wear out.



Anyhow we have decided that although we do not post very often nowadays, we really enjoy doing so and we especially enjoy having lots of pictures from the kids. So see you -hopefully soon!

Summer Sewing #4

The last two pieces we have sewn this summer were two Alasya yogapants, Ottobre 4/2015.



Again a great pants to show some tricks, although our gymnast claims the pants does not allow her to do full splits?!


We also made one in a neutral fabric. The fabric stays very good even after a couple of washes it does not change colors. The flight dusk series interlock on the other hand washes off rather quickly.


 First she puts them on ...


 Then off course, she shows more tricks ...

Summer Sewing #3

Surprisingly enough our eldest wanted something the little one got! Usually it is the other way around.



She choose the fabric she liked in a Belgian online shop (I forgot @ which one we found it). I did not bother too much about the details mentioned in the pattern, the waistband was a simple contrasting line of elastic fabric instead of a tunnel with a rope.


Fast but beautiful and easy we used elastic binding to finish all openings. It was the first time ever I used elastic binding and I have to admit easy and clean!


According to our fashionista the back side should have been the front so we made a note for next time!


When clothes fit well our children have the urge to proof it by means of gymnastics skills.
So here we go again. This time showing off aerial and back somersault.




Pattern: Knippie, nr3 year 2015

Summer Sewing #2

The pictures of these Summer Sews were taken in Belgium.
As the Randy pants was constantly dirty in Belgium we did not get the occasion to take pictures just yet. Luckily I got the chance before she is worn off.


'Best pants ever.' According to my son.


The pants surely gives him enough freedom of motion and inspiration!
