A First Milestone: The Cute Skirt

Look at this amazing Summer Skirt! Meryl started her sewing lessons with the Basic Course and had no idea to run the machine or understand all functions. We did the very first Beginner Lesson together to work on the machine smoothly. Then we adjusted the skirt pattern, cut the linen and  she learned to sew this skirt step by step. I also showed her to insert a zipper and she had the idea to add this really fun ribbon!

Sewing Classes will Start again – with extra Safety due to COVID19

The picture above is not a try to copy Claude Monet’s aquarelle paintings… It’s my sewing machine photographed though a plastic sheet that is now hung up in my atelier!

At the beginning I was quite irritated by these sheets, cos they  give a very blur vision to the person or subject in front of you, but I really got to like them now. They give more freedom than the face shields and they give another layer of safety.

Further it’s now warm enough that the windows and door can be open at all times, I have an air-condition to cool the air and a fan if we need a breeze. I am disinfecting the tables and machines for every student and we are of course wear all masks. So I think we are good to

Start the Classes Again!

Please see my brand new Class Guidelines that I changed due to COVID19 and I am happy to meet you for classes soon again.

Queen of Pixies

To create a blouse and bag that fits a Queen of Pixies was a wonderful and very delicate job. See the beautiful outcome here (the dress is a Dirndl, a traditional Bavarian dress, model’s own )

Please click on the images to enlarge them

The blouse is short, just under bustline, to fit perfectly under the dirndl dress. The sleeves are cut in leaf shapes and have been connected with a shimmering organza. The collar is gatheres and creates a soft looking ruche. The bag has also been made of leaf shapes and is lined with shimmering organza. It forms to a flower when it is pulled together by the string and the strap is wined, similar to a tendril.
