Not knit knit blouse

Ah, had a blog break.
In the mean time, I experimented with this top.
The 'not knit knit' meaning that I did not knit this
but purchased the already (machine) knit angora mix fabric
and sewed it into an oversized pullover blouse.
Heh heh. Heh.

Dress for Noor

Dress for Noor

I made one for Lieveke.
And for the sake of balance/love
had to make one for Noor too.

Terrific pdf pattern, Jenny Gordy's Tova.
Much easier than I thought :
great and fast sewing fun.
The fabric is a lightweight brushed denim, very soft yet warm.
Basic and classic winter wear.

Pretty delicate

{k11} Cirriform

Amazing, the long lost Scarfshop parcel, sent on the 15th of september 2011,
has already arrived.
Just when I finished my cirriform scarf.  Can't complain. Abundance.
Mmm thinking up a new and oversized knit gather cardi,
the third photo is a mock up,
the handknit version will be made up of endless stockingstitch (of course).

Simple comme : V-pullover

Homemade basic.
Double knit pierced/slashed fabric, originally Tom Ford.
Indigo on black. V-line. Shirt-dress.
Pattern cross-over between Nani Iro T shirt dress and dolman basic top.
Sewn in a record half hour, bias edges included.
The supple knit surprisingly easy to handle.
Comfy. I have been wearing this a lot.

Amazing. 6!
A celebratory homemade dress was in order.
The party girl is currently too busy to pose
riding her new fantastic bike :)
Pattern from an out of print  2006 Japanese girl-dress sewing book.
