Dress up this town – Twig + Tale

Today I’ll show you my latest make from Twig + Tale Driftwood pattern (link!*)
It is a perfect summery dressing up dress made out of lightweight cotton blend. I don’t know the exact fiber content as it was given to me from my granny. My granny used to work in clothing industry and she still goes to visit her ex coworkers and they now send me some fabric scraps they have 🙂 So because of the nature of the pieces I had I made some modifications. When the skirt portion is originally double the width of bodice I had enough to only make it around 1.5 width of bodice.
I decided to change the sleeves and shortened them to use without cuff and took some of the wideness off. It resulted in this beautiful dress I am loving in bits and pieces.
I am sorry that these photos don’t do justice as it is just so cold and windy outside!

The most important part about this dress is that DD loves it and I love it too!

From spring to summer

I have to say, this post was actually meant to be showcasing things I have made for myself, but I managed to get pneumonia. Pneumonia with 40C fever so let’s just say this ain’t going to happen although I am now on a getting better road. As you can think, one week high fever also messed up all my sewing plans so here I am, kinda in a trouble, but let’s just say, blogger always tries to find her way out.
So today I am telling you about our transitioning from spring to summer. To be honest, our springs are cold and summers are not really warm either. So this brings us to a problem, what to wear? When before sewing I would have struggled with clothing DD as there is never weatherapproriate clothing in the stores now I have no problem with her. She has a style of her own so sometimes things are not going the way I want to and I have to try something on her numerous times before she agrees to wear something 🙂 This is exactly how it went with the Twig + Tale Pixie shorts (link!*) I added detachable bow and when at the beginning she didn’t like the shorts she is now loving them. Since most of the time it is still pretty coldish here she wears shorts with tights. And layers, tons of layers to change troughout day depending on the weather. So now I’ll show you the Pixies in different situations just because I can and we both love them!

Sewing Up Spring Blog tour

If we are thinking about sewing up spring my first thought was florals and this sew is a bit floral 😉 There is floral linen lining.

I decided to go with Twig + Tale Traveller cape * for this blog tour. Getting lighter clothes, more colors and florals is totally spring for me. This beautiful travellers cape is made out of Wool blend outer and Linen lining. Totally warm enough for our cold spring (It is still around 2C outside for us) and such a classic piece of clothing. DD wore it to a grocery store and there were many people who complimented her look 🙂
