Douce nuit

L'année dernière(déjà),une épaisse robe de chambre s'est invitée dans ma garde robe pour avoir bien chaud le soir dans la maison de ma fille .Oui,oui,car elle vit et travaille à la montagne,dans une vieille ferme et la neige blanchit souvent le paysage.


Comme il me restait du tissus imprimé de style japonais , l'idée d'un pyjama...donc,vite chez Toto pour acquérir un coupon de popeline pour chemise.Il y a du repassage dans l'air.

patron Burda,en allongeant les jambes.

le plus dur a été de recouvrir les boutons,un conseil:acheter des boutons à recouvrir de bonne marque,ceux qui sont moins chers ne résistent pas et se ferment moins bien!
J'avoue ne pas coudre aussi vite que pendant une période passée,mais j'aide une amie à faire un manteau de coupe compliquée.Nous pensons le mettre sur ce blog bientôt.

Et puis,une folie:achat d'une jupe de belle facture dans un magasin caritatif...en taille 42,que je vais essayer de réduire en 36.

Les champs autour de la maison,en Auvergne ,au centre de la France.C'est la nature et le grand air loin des villes .

Make a Garment a Month now a Facebook Group - Join Us :)



We have moved to Facebook:


This will be my last post on the Make a Garment a Month Blog.  You have all been a wonderful community and we've made some great garments - it's always a pleasure to see what everyone has made.

For personal reasons, I can no longer facilitate this blog - it does take quite a lot of time, and I need that now  as  off blog life  is very busy.

Facebook is a much more interactive medium, which works well for a community group. Already our numbers have expanded and there is a lot more creative energy within the group.

It's a great pity that some of you can't come over - but you all have sound personal reasons as well- so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you well.

And you can always follow our members on their own personal blogs.

For those of you who want to join us on Facebook, please either friend Sarah Liz (the facilitator) on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/sarah.liz.104

Finished December Garment

Happy New Year 2015!


I finished my December top exactly in the end of the month but as usual I am late to posting it.
I was planning to make the top with purple knit fabric only but I decided to add color block with dark purple knit because I want to make a not so boring basic top. And at the end of my work, I am happy with how it turned out :) 

More details and pictures blogged here, http://velvetribbonsew.blogspot.com/2015/01/my-last-garment-of-2014-basic-long.html

Happy sewing and see you all in our Facebook Group!

Goodbye!

Hi all! Chances of me finishing my December garment in December are, uhm, zero! On the other hand, I may be the first one to complete a 2015 Christmass dress. Always look at the bright side of sewing! I just posted pictures of a new Mabel skirt I did finish recently on my blog. For the next year I have lots and lots of sewing plans: coats, jackets, a wedding guest dress and of course high on my list is finishing my French jacket. So many plans, so little time. That's why I won't move to Facebook with you guys. I blog, and I use Instagram. Keeping more social media platforms up to date will cut into my sewing time, which is scarce enough as it is. I will keep a close eye on your blogs and you're more than welcome to follow mine if you want to check what I'm up to. I will miss the community feel of Make a Garment a Month and I thank Sarah Liz for starting and hosting this blog. Wishing you all a very Happy New Sewing Year!
