Help me pick a cover for my book Sewing Activewear

- Sewing activewear, Video

In December my first sewing book will be published (unless something unforeseen happens). Yay for that! But there are still several things remaining before I can press publish, such as deciding on the book cover. So I figured I should reach out to you guys and ask for your input. I’ve done three different versions and what I would like to know is which one you prefer? And if you could give a motivation and perhaps suggestions on how to…

Some of my favourite Burdastyle patterns

- Made by me

If you have followed this blog for a while or watched my YouTube-channel, you know I’m a total Burdastyle fangirl.

Some of the tips I’ve shared in previous videos and some are new additions. I get a lot of questions about sewing with knits and requests for…

Workout tank top

- Made by me, My makes, Sewing activewear

The last piece in my 4-piece mini workout wardrobe was a simple tank top with side panels for a more flattering fit. I drafted the pattern myself, and while it wasn’t the most time consuming or technically difficult make, it still felt like a huge victory. The reason for that is that this is the first garment that I’ve been successful when it comes to using the Janome coverstitch binder attachment. So all the binding is made with the attachment.…
