Hi guys! Today I bring you something different: it’s not a pattern review, it’s a label review! I was contacted some time ago by the Dutch Label Shop in order to ask me if I wanted to try their products, so if you like to know more about my experience, keep reading!
Hello there! It’s been a little while since my last post, isn’t it? Well, I’m happy to tell you that I’m alive and ready to pick up this blog again! 😉
Maybe some of you wonder where I’ve been, so here’s the story: back in May I was offered an amazing opportunity for an internship as a patternmaker in a small design studio in Barcelona. It was supposed to last until the end of July, but it extended for all summer until my classes started… and then I had the possibility of working there til December, and I was having such a great time that I said yes! It didn’t occur to me that going to class for nearly 7 hours and then working about 4 hours more in the design studio could be juuust a bit exhausting… But when the time came and I was about to finish, I ended up working there for another month, until the end of January. Yes, I might be suffering a severe case of the Stockholm syndrome 😉
I’ve been a very bad blogger recently: I haven’t published in a month! I’ve had an insanely busy summer and, although I’ve sewn quite some things, I haven’t had the time (or, sometimes, the internet connection…) to post about them. BUT… I’ve been working on this blog, even if you couldn’t see that until now! 😉
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!)
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!
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:
Special mid-week post today!! Just to tell you that the lovely Réka (who blogs at RedHeels and sews pretty little things) is making a series of interviews to the lingerie bloggers out there, and today I’m the one featured! 🙂 It’s such a honour! *Blush* So, if you’re curious about my story, my beginnings at bra-making or just want to see a silly picture of me, go and check the interview! 😉
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! 😉
