Me-Made-May 2015

I, Konstanze of tabeakatharina.wordpress.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made garment each day for the duration of May 2015. I’ll take a picture of my outfits each day and will show them to you in a weekly round-up, probably on Sundays. (I’m so excited! Last year…

Pocahontas Cosplay: The Search for Fabric

I gotta be honest here, I do not like spending time at the local fabric store. Let me explain: It’s not because I don’t enjoy browsing for fabric. I could’ve spent hours in Eurokangas for example.

A Sunny Afternoon in Violet

My friend Lisa is very pretty and very fashionable – in fact, she has a really awesome fashion and lifestyle blog, Mrs. O.Gehry And Her Curves.

A Stitch in Time: To Wear With A Summer Suit

I wish I could say I finished this sweater in the time between posting my Such Flattering Puff Sleeves sweater and today. The truth of the matter is, sadly, that I started this garment sometime in August 2014 and have been working on it until March 2015, with long breaks inbetween. To think this was…

Gaenor in Grey

Don’t you agree that I absolutely needed another shawl? I definitely don’t have enough things to put around my neck … 😛 There was still leftover yarn from my Such Flattering Puff Sleeves sweater, so I decided to make another shawl from Corrina Ferguson’s Sideways Shawls collection. My Bakersfield is cute and so soft thanks to…

Let’s start sewing again!

Yesterday I looked at this blog and realized I haven’t sewn something since the summer … what happened?! Long story, but it made me want to sit down at my sewing machine and start a project immediately. I pulled out the parts for this Burda wrap skirt pattern (07/2014) I had already cut out last year,…
