Zomer blouse met rolzoom ruches

Het lijkt wel of ik geen genoeg krijg van ruches, ruffles of voilants. Ook deze keer weer werden er ruches toegevoegd aan een lekker zomerblouse. In deze blog laat ik zien hoe je de beste rolzoom krijgt die gezien mag worden en deel ik nog wat tips voor het naaien met de bernette 64 AIRLOCK.

Time to shine! Maak je eigen patroon voor een zwierige zomerjurk

Met een hele rits aan kledingstukken in de Time to Shine! capsule wardrobe is het tijd om de 'gaten' te vullen. Vooraf heb ik nagedacht welke kledingstukken ik erin zou willen hebben en in welk kleurenpalet.

Bustier top naaien met tips voor de overlocker

Met de zomer in aantocht dwaal ik met mijn gedachte al af naar de vakantie en wat er nog mist voor in de vakantiekoffer. Leuke topjes! Zoals een bustier top die al een tijdje op mijn wensenlijstje stond. Leuk, maar om juiste pasvorm te krijgen wel een uitdaging.

Time to shine! Mood blazer, handige naaitips en must-haves

Bij het bedenken van het kleurenpalet voor de Time to Shine! capsule wardrobe hadden onderstaande stoffen de hoofdrol. In deze blog maak ik mijn tweede blazer uit de capsule op de BERNINA 590 Crystal Edition, deel ik handige naaitips en must-haves voor iedere naai-ster.

Leftovers skirt and how to gather with the over locker

Boiler suit: Timeless, stylish and comfortable

In the Time to Shine! capsule wardrobe there should be a jumpsuit. A timeless piece of clothing. And if you look beyond the discomfort of this item when going to the toilet, it is a super easy outfit (you don't have to coordinate it with something else), fits great (especially if you make it from a stretchy fabric) and is stylish (love it).

Sweetheart Sofia top

Soms kom je een patroon tegen dat je gelijk wilt maken. Zoals deze Sofia top van Staystitch Patterns. Het is een top, longsleeve t-shirt en een jurk in één. Met een restje wat dikker ribjersey moest het eerst maar eens een mouwloos topje worden, want dat er meer gaan volgen wist ik van te voren al.

Time to shine! Een halve cirkelrok (teken zelf je patroon)

In mijn vorige blog deelde ik al met je welke look ik graag wilde creëren en hoe ik daarvoor stof borduurde om het juiste polkadot patroon na te bootsen. In deze blog laat ik je zien hoe ik het patroon van de halve cirkelrok, met hulp van een oud studieboek van mijn moeder uit de jaren '50, zelf tekende.

Hera sweater by LIESL

Het nieuwe Hera sweater patroon van Bel'etoile en Sew it Curly (beiden ook lid van het BERNINA blog team) mocht ik testen. Dit sweater patroon met maarliefst 6 verschillende mouwopties is een heerlijk makkelijk naaipatroon (maat 32-52) en daar waar die ietsie ingewikkelder is wordt het heel duidelijk uitgelegd met veel verhelderende foto's en tekeningen.

#REFEBULOUS: Van oude sweaters naar een nieuwe sweat suit

Voor de REFEBULOUS challenge ging ik in de REUSE categorie eens aan de slag met de berg sweaters van de jongens die te klein waren geworden of niet meer gedragen werden. Ik starte met het idee om een leuke joggingbroek te maken en het eindigde in een heus sweat suit/joggingpak.

Advent Calendar 2021 - the 23th door

Enter the Christmas season with a shine with these wonderful embroidered ornaments, it's time to shine! Although they are 10 cm long and decorated with beads, the ornaments are still light. Ideal for earrings, but if that's not your thing, hang them on your tree 😉 For the ornaments you need a machine with an embroidery module, embroidery thread, water soluble embroidery stabiliser and an embroidery pattern.

Time to shine! Refashion pailletten bomberjack

Als een ekster wordt ik vaak getrokken naar pailletten items in de kringloop winkel. Ook zo bij deze toffe trui met pailletten mouwen. De trui was zo al leuk, maar wel wat strak voor mij. Toch de moeite waard om mee te nemen. Zeker met de Time to shine capsule wardrobe in het vooruitzicht.
