Even though the pile doesn’t look big – it made a big difference in my wardrobe and helped someone else.

When I cam across this old dress made based on Burda pattern – hmmm… I decided to keep it for a while. I like this swing dress – it is worth to give it a second chance/life.

Now there is even more space for creativity!

Decluttering part 1 – Burda Magazines – All these memories

From time to time it is good to declutter my sewing atelier and the office.

This time I decided to make some order in books and magazines.

When moving from Poland to the Netherlands I took with me my collection of Burda magazines from 80’s – 90’s. Well, you never know. Besides I have made so many garments based on the patterns from Burda that it could be useful.

Hmmm…  once in a box – they stayed in the box.

When I open the box it was as opening a time capsule – so many memories. Good one!

It appeared a real treasure – I even came across few patterns I might to use to make some garments soon.

Decluttering is a very hard job which I could not do without my helping hand – Bolle.

Anyway – I picked up few magazines and the rest put back in the box.

No, I am not yet ready to say good bye to them so I found for them a nice place in the attic.

Classic Dress – Perfect Wardrobe Bulider

The time has arrived when I needed to add few new pieces to my wardrobe.

Few years ago I have made the dress – wearable muslin – based on the Vogue Pattern V8787.  I have made a version with asymmetrical neckline with left-side gather.

I had a beautiful marine blue crepe wool in my stash – perfect for this dress. I cut out the pattern pieces about a year ago (wow! time flies) and somehow did not feel like sewing.

The dress has silk organza as interlining and Venezia lining.

I am so glad I have finished it eventually! I enjoy every time I wear this dress.

This classic dress is a great wardrobe builder. Perfect to wear together with a French jacket or just a cardigan or on her own. RPT sleek glass jewellery match perfect with it.

I am sure I will use this Vogue Pattern V8787 many times.

Less than 1 meter fabric … no problem!

You have these moments when you see a piece of a fabric and immediately know what you want to make out of it.

That was exactly with this piece of a little stretch woven satin.  It was just enough to make this top with drape neckline. I used the Vogue pattern V9771.

This is perfect top to wear with my pencil skirts or pants.

Both – front and back, are cut on bias thus no bust darts are needed.

This is pattern which you can easy make in one day and it is great wardrobe builder.
