Finished Lutterloh 29!

I didn't think I would be able to finish a sewing project before moving home. But I did! This will probably the last sewing project at my old place. So, it's a good closure! 


I recreated this dress from the 1941 Lutterloh pattern book. What I really like about this dress is the pocket detail, the notched collar and of course the puffed sleeves :) 

Whil writing the blogpost I realised I forgot about the pockets at hip level. Well, I don't like accentuating my hips anyway!
It took quite some time to finish the dress. This was not because it was extremely difficult. But I didn't feel like sewing most of the time and the striped fabric scared me away a bit. It's easier to get your mojo back with an easy project without caring about matching the fabric. But I find it really hard to leave a project unfinished, so I got on with it anyway.


I changed the pattern by making it a complete button down closure instead of stopping halfway as you can see at the illustration. I just like being practical. 


There are a few things I don't like about the dress. The first thing is that it sometimes looks like that the stripes aren't matching at the button closure. They do! But when I move the fabric moves place. And secondly, I wished the fabric is a bit drapier. It's quite stiff and doesn't follow my body as smoothly as I like it to be.


What else can I say? I really don't know. Just that I'm happy with finishing another Lutterloh dress!

Don't feel like doing anything

Dear readers,

I know it's been a while since my last update. The problem is I don't feel like crafting or blogging these days. The main reason is that I'm going to move to another place. My mind is completely focused on moving and I feel a bit restless about it. So focussing on my hobbies  is pretty hard at the moment. 


Today was the first day in several weeks I worked on a sewing project. It feels a bit uncomfortable, sitting behind my sewing machine. And I definitely miss the flow I use to have while sewing. I feel like a beginner again.

I'm not sure about the aim of this blogpost. I guess I wanted to share with you what's going on at the moment. 

Have a nice weekend!
