Wrap Top Neue Mode – STIL – M22745

Yesterday was another day of fixing old central heating system. We still had pressure dropping which indicated that there is still somewhere a leakage. So we have another hole in the floor and we hope it was the last time.

Home improvements - heating system pipes

 

Being at home I was planning to follow-up on my silk skirt but I could not find a proper zipper. I have enough blind zippers in my sewing supplies but I don’t like to use them. So the task for today afternoon – go find zipper.

While looking through my stash I came across this fabric – viscose crepe – I have bought I think almost 10 years ago – which was put in the envelope together with one of the first pattern I have bought.

It is a Neue Mode – type – STIL – M22745. As far as I know the company stopped making the patterns however you may still buy downloadable/printable versions on  Sewing Patterns. I am making the view D (I can always choose for view C if anything goes wrong with sleeves).

Something easy in between…

Sometimes you have it. You see a few pieces of a fabric and you know what you will make. I had few small pieces left after making the vintage warp top and as this fabric is a little thin I needed something small under the wrap (especially for a little cooler days). It was just perfect to squeeze this small top. It will be perfect as well under the jacket to a skirt – I have already tried :-).

As I did not have enough fabric to finish edges with a band I used this transparent elastic. I attached it to the edges of the neckline and armhole with a serger.

Starting working on a new project – dress Vogue 8648

When I am tired I know something could go wrong so I prefer to work on something easy. The muslin of Marfy dress is waiting to be disassembled so I could put all adjustments on the pattern pieces. I think I will trace patterns to keep originals untouched. Tomorrow ….

Having wonderful summer weather outside is not helping to sit inside … I see so many posts with stunning summer dresses… so it is time to prepare for new dresses.

I have checked my patterns stash and I have ascertained that I have few summer patterns already traced and ready to be turn to dresses Glimlach

The Marfy dress pattern 3069 – A or B?

I decided to make the Marfy dress in two colours – only version A or B?

Marf y Dress 3096, Colour combination, Marfy pattern, dress, muslin

My muslin is ready and is almost the time to cut the dress from the fabric.

Personally I prefer option B – such colours combination not only looks better but fits better my figure as well.

Let’s try the muslin 🙂

What a day! What fabrics! Lot of fabrics! Lot of fabulous fabrics! I have made my list but I was lost the moment I entered the huge hall. These beautiful prints and colours. I was dizzy!

I have promised myself to by few fabrics for summer tops and here they are:

For sure there will be at least two D2N tops – I love this patterns. I have 2-3 woven fabrics for different but as well simple tops. Most fabrics are cotton, cotton with silk or viscose.

And for summer jacket I have bought this loose woven fabric – mix of cotton, silk and viscose.

I think I will have enough tops for summer. I have bought as well mix of cotton with silk in black for the next LBD – never enough Knipogende emoticon.

I have for sure enough to do now – even more – but working with these colours will make all efforts worth it.
