Me – Made – May’16!

It’s May already! And I’ve signed up for my second Me-Made-May! For those who aren’t familiar with it, Me-Made May is an initiative created by Zoe, of So Zo…What do you know?: every year she encourages every person, animal or thing who can sew to challenge themselves during the month of May. How? Well, it’s up to you, but a good way to do it is committing to wear certain number of handmade clothes each week. (You can see my experience last year here and here!)

Who made my Bra? Ideas for building an ethical lingerie wardrobe

As you know, we are in the middle of the Fashion Revolution Week, that’s why I decided to write a post about lingerie (Oh, what a surprise! 😉 ) but this time from the ethical perspective: if you make lingerie at home, I’m sure you’re well aware of the challenges that surround the making of a single garment. Cutting and sewing a bra can take hours, and it demands a higher attention to detail than other garments: a difference as small as 5mm can completely change the fit of the cup!Who Made my bras Continue Reading

The Fashion Revolution is Here!

Hi everyone! Today’s post is going to be a bit different: I won’t show you pictures of my last bra or a new tutorial. Instead, I wanted to talk about something more meaningful: maybe you’ve heard that this week is the Fashion Revolution Week and you are familiar with the initiative. But, for those of you who aren’t, here’s a quick recap:

Sewing Plans

I love making to-do lists, but I don’t usually do it with my sewing projects. I like having the freedom to choose what to sew next, but the downside is that I often end up forgetting to make the garments that I really need. So, I’ve decided to write down my sewing plans for this season because this will help me to be more organized with my sewing, but also because it’s always nice to think about exciting new projects. Let’s start with the list! 😉

New Year’s Blog Resolutions

Happy New Year to everyone!! ^^ I hope you had a wonderful holyday! I had a great time, I travelled a lot to visit all my family and I got amazing presents! Some of them are related to sewing, so maybe you’ll see them here in a few days… 😛 But now it’s time to work again, go to the university, make some homework, study some exams… Oh boy! I want to stay in bed hugging my pillow! But no, I don’t want to think about that. I prefer to start the new year thinking about… sewing! And, of course, blogging! So, these are my Blog Resolutions for 2016:
