Back. Again.

Hi guys, it's me!

Let's talk about sewing!! It's almost been 1,5 year since I showed you something. Waaaay too long! I have been sewing but just didn't feel like blogging. I want to pick that up because it was always good fun and God knows I need some fun in my life right now. And I would lie if I said that I don't have the time for it.

Let's start the next phase of this journey with a green cardigan. It's still early days as you can tell:


Years ago I used this pattern to sew a jacket in a boucle-fabric and I wanted to use it again. This time the fabric is much thinner (cotton with just a bit of stretch). It's gonna be somewhat of a challenge to make it look and fit nice again. I hope it will work out in the end. My body changed through the years and adjustments here and there are required. The biggest change is a full-bust-adjustment (FBA). I'm so proud for figuring out how to do that. Besides that I lengthened the pattern 3 cm in the waist. These days a standard adjustment for me.

Full-bust-adjustment

Wow.....feels great to be - sort of - back.
Talk to you soon. And this time, my sewing friends, that's a promise!
