- Sewing activewear, Video

Yes, I’m finally doing another livestream again! This time I’ve picked a topic that is dear to my heart, namely sewing activewear! I’m planning to make the stream almost like a mini-course where I cover the basics, such as fabric choices, my thoughts on different seams, notions and tools, what patterns I like to use and some of my favourite techniques as well.

I’m currently working on garment number three of my winter wardrobe project. If I keep this speed up I might actually be able to finish before the winter is over!

In fact I like to think that almost…

Clover Chaco Liner Pen– a review

- Tools

I’m constantly on the lookout for better marking tools since I feel the ones that are readily available all have their shortcomings  Hence why I was curious to try out Clover Chaco Liner Pen that was recommended to me during my livestream Budget Friendly Sewing Tools. The Clover Chaco Liner Pen feels like a combo of two common fabric tracing tools; a dressmaker’s tracing pen and a tracing wheel. The pen has a refillable ampule with tailor’s chalk and a tapered and thin…

Video: Winter workout wardrobe

- Made by me, Video

 My latest makes: I have been sewing a mini workout winter wardrobe over the holidays, perfect now that the weather hit sub-zero Celsius this weekend. The wardrobe is very streamlined in colour as you will see in the video. Basically only three colours, but it’s was nice to make something in a more classic style. I do love my prints, but I’m also very fond of navy and white. Things mentioned in the video How to perfect the 3-thread…
