Somewhere in March I have bought the dark blue and blue stripes cotton jersey for pyjama for my husband.

Results of my sewing week-end…

It  was great! Sewing weekend – it was so long ago I sew…

I faced however the serge which is still having issues with cutting the jersey fabric and my sewing machine still making loops. The maintenance did not help in both cases which means I will have to repeat it.
I thing that the broken below hook grip in my sewing machine was a result of something which is incorrect somewhere else.
I try to sew on it but probably I will be forced to buy a new sewing machine. No Husqvarna this time –I have to say I am very disappointed with this model.

Still I was determined and I have managed to finish – not one – but two Day-To-Night Drape Tops (pattern by MariaDenmark)

and one top based on KwikSew 2740 model B (OOP). I will probably need to correct the neckline – make it a little shorter so it will lay better.

It has strait – pencil – line with higher tail. I have made kick pleat on the back and blind zipper with buttons.

Now I have to check if I still fit in it… as it was quite a long time I started to make it Knipogende emoticon.

I will take some more photos later – in the daylihgt.

Now it’s time for the next UFO’s!

My pattern stash on Pattern Review

Vastleggen in volledig scherm 28-10-2012 232122.bmpSome time ago I signed in to Pattern Review and recently I have discovered that I can store information on all my patterns I have ever bought there. I was trying to make some lists in Excel but the number of patterns was growing too fast.

Next to the information about the pattern I can see reviews – which are very useful when you want to make this garment.

Wow … I did not know I had more than 200 patterns … oooops Knipogende emoticon

I put about 90% of my patterns there – I am still finding patterns hidden somewhere in the drawers …
