Price and a new project

On the sewing front:

My summer obsession was jersey, guess my autumn obsession is becoming plaid and reinterpreting it. And I like this new trend of over feminine details, but I like it with an edge.





I think I am going to buy some more plaid when I go back to Kassel... They had some brilliant stuff there I didn't buy back than...


Then the price - Thanks Lucia! - given me by Cafe Couture.


P.S. I am awful, I must confess I changed the colours of the price diamond, cause I couldn't fit them in my recent blog colour scheme...

The rules:

1. Select 6 bloggers to whom you would like to give this award- prize (definetly not easy to choose - only 6) 6 select bloggers to whom you would like to give this award-prize (definitely not easy to choose - only 6)

2. Put the award - prize on your blog and indicate who gave it to you by identifying her/his blog; Put the award - prize on your blog and indicate who gave it to you by identifying her / his blog;

3. Paste these rules on your blog; Paste these rules on your blog;

4. Write 6 of your most important values and 6 negative points you condemn, Write 6 of your most important values and 6 negative points condemn you,

5. Inform the 6 recipients by leaving a comment on their blog. Inform the 6 recipients by leaving a comment on their blog.


Ok I am choosing people I love peeking by and I learn a lot about sewing from, since it is a sewing blog...


Oona - I am overly entertained by her cool blog.

Melissa - I still cannot believe she is living on a boot! And I love her pattern choices.

Tany - almost no need of explaination - I just go to her archives the whole time to learn the right techniques.

Paco - same here, he is giving everybody a great inside in professional techniques.

Colette - I love seeing all the different garments she posts about.

Moo - a new to my list I like her blog a lot.


Off course I love reading all your blogs, but I had to make such a small selection...

That top is so cute. I love the plaid.
Did you use a pattern? I've been looking for something cute with a small ruffle.

Geri said...

The basic shirt pattern is the JJ pattern from burdastyle - I use it as a pattern block. The sleeves are missing I am still thinking how I should make them...
The ruffles I made myself I will post on that.

The ruffles are awesome. I also am falling in love with plaid for the fall/winter :)

Thank you so much for your prize! I am very flattered, I will have to compile my list of who to pass it on to tonight :)

Love the shirt - those ruffles are a really great addition that I would not have thought of combining with the plaid but it works very well!
