Oh my, I am so excited. I just finished sewing my very first piece of garment which I am actually planning to wear.
I started yesterday in the morning, copied the pattern, cut out the pieces, slowly going from one step to the next and took the time to do everything slowly to avoid making mistakes I usually tend to do as I am sometimes so impatient.

The pattern is from Jenny and I got the Liberty fabric last week here in Sydney. It so soft and beautiful to sew. I am so happy with it and can't wait to wear it out the first time.

So, now I am thinking, what's next! :)

Wunderschön! Hab den Schnitt auch und muss ihn ENDLICH ausprobieren - ich glaub, bei Wiksten gibts auch den Schnitt zur langärmeligen Bluse gerade im Angebot!

I just started reading what jana wrote and thought I was going crazy. Just for a moment. As I only know how to read english. Just wanted to say very impressive handiwork lady! Gorgeous top. Now we just need to weather to wear it! (I'm in Sydney too) Kellie xx

hallo Maria, das ist ja super geworden! ich habe mir letzten Sommer einen ganz aehnlichen Schnitt gezeichnet und ihn schon ein paar Mal genaeht, ich finde von so einem basic Teil kann man eigentlich nicht zu viele haben. Der Stoff ist wirklich toll, und die Farbe passt perfekt zu dir!

Well done you talented thing! Looks great :) I inherited four boxes of fabric from my grandma's neighbour, I need to do the same. You've inspired me to get cracking, I just don't know where to start.

P R I M O E Z A said...

very nice. i would wear that a lot too.

Trixi said...

Liebe Maria, der Stoff ist so wundervoll und ich finde es bewundernswert, dass du dir die Zeit genommen hast, und alles ganz in Ruhe gemacht hast. Ich bin auch immer zu ungeduldig! Bin schon gespannt, was du als nächstes machst! (und auch darauf, was ich wohl machen werde...)

Liebste Grüße!

Kristina said...

Elisabeth said...

Just discovered your blog via a pin on pinterest (i think?) and was so excited to scroll through and see this post! I've had Jenny tank pattern sitting on the shelf in my studio for way too long, you've inspired me to finally make this. I love the fabric you chose :)

Gabbi said...

It's lovely, especially fond of the fabric pattern. My sis and I daydream about making our own clothes also... very inspiring post!

Just found your blog via the wiksten flickr pool and this is one of the prettiest wiksten tops I've seen. Great fabric and it looks beautifully made. I got to this pattern too late and just missed out on buying one before Wiksten stopped selling them...I'm looking for it everywhere, so if you EVER want to sell it, I'd gladly buy. Can't wait to see what you sew next. xx
