I did not use the elastic tape for finishing the back neck line but I used stripe of the same jersey. As you can see I have changed the finishing of armholes in this model as well.
I love working with jersey, sewing on serge – it is so easy…

The back neck line and armholes I have finished as well with the stripe of jersey only this time I turned it over and stitched.

I like both of them and I will for sure wear them often. Definitely addition to my wardrobe essentials.

Having my camera on I have taken as well photos of my other top I have made base on Vogue pattern 7799. I was posting about it here.

I like the top of the dress however it is nothing new. The skirt is easy to make and probably I will use my basic skirt pattern.

As usually used fabrics, colours and prints on the fabrics making it stunning till you look at drawings.

Red Point Tailor

I am almost there … I have already finished few items for my shop – Red Point Tailor, on Etsy.

The story behind the name is long. Friend of my husband had a friend, who had a white cat with the tail ended in red. So his name was Red Point Tailer. Our one of the first cats was grey with the tail ended in white. Our last cat was red and white… my grandfather was a tailor so somehow we came up with … the Red Point Tailor. Just a little fun!

Red Point Tailor

When we moved to Apeldoorn – about 10 years ago – in the east of the Netherland, we have bought a house originated from 1930. In this period it was very common to have the stained glass windows. Unfortunately a previous owner replace them with plain glass.

We have found the stained glass panels at the attic and so the hobby of my husband was born. He decided to renovate all panels and step-by-step replace the plain widows with the old-new stained glass. Of course we will put them in isolated glass.

Working with stained glass – starting to work with the stained glass – meat a lot of broken glass.

As far as I remember Art Deco fascinated me. The combination of the old with the ultra modern in the Golden Age, the glamour, simplicity of garments … Few years ago I started to think of making a jewellery and this broken glass pieces were missing piece in all puzzle.

I have already have few pieces – pendants, for my shop. I hope I will soon finish a vintage inspired dress where I will incorporate own, handmade accessory.

Herewith one of the finished pendants…

I started with cutting the glass pieces following my design – I used the vintage colour pallet. To join the glass piece I am using Tiffany technique, this means that each glass piece is wrapped with self-adhesive copper strip and then soldered with lead free solder, which contains silver and tin.
