Latest Project


So, the latest sewing project i made was a fall coat.

I felt in love, long time ago, with 2 things :

McCall’s Pattern M5937

And this look of Behnaz Sarafpour’s Fall 2010 collection

I’ve made a mutant coat out of these two and it is absolutely gorgeous!

Of course, as usual, I’m late taking pictures but I promise that before the end of this week I’ll show you some!

MY Bible

For some, the ultimate Bible is Vogue. For others it is Harper’s Bazaar, W or L’Officiel.

For me, the perfect, ultimate magazine is… Burda Style.

I know, talking about the latest trends, months in advance is not their niche. But talking about actual trends you can sew yourself, with simple but effective editorials to support it? Yeah, you got me at 100% with that.

Of course, I also read Vogue and a lot of others (in fact I subscribed to 4 magazines and I buy periodically some others) and each day, I surf on the Internet, desperatly looking for a new fashion thing I haven’t seen yet.

But overall, the magazine I enjoy the most to read is my Burda one. The excitment of seeing beautiful new sewing patterns and thinking about what kind of fabric I would like to make it is a pure pleasure.

In the last one I purchased, there was a BIG surprise.

Karl Lagerfeld himself, provide the magazine, 2 of his own patterns’ creation.


Even if I like pretty much the jacket, the style is too difficult to wear, according to my style, in an everyday situation (considering I am a student).

On the other side, the skirt is very cute. Even if I don’t wear skirts very much when the weather gets cold, I think it would be perfect for the Holidays.

So, who said that you can’t find couture in Burda Style?

No news good news!

Hi everybody

I know it’s been a long time since i wrote here.

After my summer vacations, school started up again and i cas assure you that it’s actually the biggest and hardest session i had so far. I have a lot of work to do, what means i didn’t have the time to sew very much.

I made a few things during summer that i didn’t show you because i didn’t take proper pictures. Anyway, here they are and please excuse me for the poor quality of these images!

I made this one with an old big pair of jeans I bought at my church’s basement sale for St-Vincent de Paul, for 2 bucks and i made the pockets’ lining with a very cute fabric i bought like 5 years ago; its a pale yellow with embrodery flowers on it.

Finally made it!

Après l’illustration, le voici!

Malgré la simplicité du modèle, le tissus était une vraie damnation alors pour faire de belles finitions, ca a pas été évident…

Parfait pour la température accablante de cette semaine!

Fait en suivant ce patron : McCalls M6083

Domination quasi totale de la machine à coudre!

Voici en grande première le résultat de dur labeur, d’essais, erreurs, ajustements, coups de pédale de machine.

Ca a l’air relativement simple comme ca mais c’est la première paire de shorts pour laquelle je fais moi-même le patron.

Malheureusement pour moi, il fait 16° Celsius +pluie dehors alors il va falloir attendre un autre jour pour les porter…
