I’m sure you all know it by now, but just a few days ago Madalynne wrote in her blog my two favourite words in English: FREE PATTERNS! 😉 Yep, she has released for free the Noelle set: a halter bralette and a high-waisted panty pattern, and they both look so stylish and comfy!
I received the pattern earlier because I applied as a pattern tester, so I meant to sew them sooner but… sadly life got in the way and I couldn’t finish them until yesterday. And, of course, I’ve worn the complete set today because I’m super happy of how they turned out!
As you saw in my Me Made May round up, I’ve got several handmade items that have never seen the light on this blog. One of my blog resolutions for this year was to write more posts about my handmade garments, not just about lingerie, so maybe it’s time for me to actually do it!

The talented Ana released her Maya bra pattern some time ago and asked for pattern testers. And I believe that nearly all the sewers out there jumped at the opportunity! So, if anyone of you is thinking about making this pattern, that’s my experience with it!

And I absolutely love my jeans, btw, but the only things that I’m wearing this summer are dresses and skirts. The problem was that I didn’t have many skirts at the beginning of the summer, so I went to the fabric store and I pretty much bought any lightweight fabric they had, and started transforming them into skirts. I’ve made three so far, and a dress. And maybe I’ll blog about them some day. But today is about sharing with you my greatest skirt-related discovery: the Veronika Skirt pattern, by Megan Nielsen! *applause*
The end of th semester is near, which means… more time studying and less time sewing! That’s why I’m loving easy patterns like this one: Mallori Lane, created by Maddie, queen of delicate bra-making! (Seriously, I’m in love with her blog. Everything is SO stylish!!) Continue Reading
