Houston, we have a finished sewing Project!
Houston, temos um projeto de costura terminado!


See more photos of me wearing the dress on my wardrobe blog.

Vejam fotos minhas a usar o vestido no meu blogue deestilo pessoal.

Pattern used: BurdaStyle 01/2014 model 122 (originally a top, turned it into a dress). I cut a 38.

Molde usado: BurdaStyle 01/2014 modelo 122 (o original é um top, mas transformei-o num vestido). Cortei o tamanho 38.
Fabric used: Missoni-esque chevron print knit (medium weight, it’s kind of a thin sweater knit)
Tecido usado: Malha de peso médio com padrão inspirado em Missoni
Sewing instructions and changes made: there’s nothing to add to the sewing instructions, Burda has them illustrated and they are perfectly clear (this was the issue’s featured pattern with sewing course included). I added 12 inches to the length, turning it into a dress. The real challenge with this project was matching the patterns; look closely to the pictures bellow and let me know what you think!

New SM and wishful sewing – Nova máquina de costura e vontade de costurar

Image
A couple of months ago I decided on upgrading to a new sewing machine (it’s a nice way to get some sewing mojo back, right?) and my choice went to Pfaff, mainly based on the dealer proximity and positive reviews. I bought the Pfaff Ambition Essential, and so far I am very pleased (I did use it to finish up the leather sleeves coat, some mending and also to sew some costumes for the kindergarten’s Christmas play).

Há uns meses decidi-me a comprar uma máquina de costura melhor (é uma ótima forma de auto motivação para costurar, não acham?) e a minha escolha caiu na Pfaff, baseada na proximidade da loja e nas críticas positivas. Comprei a Pfaff Ambition Essential e até agora, do pouco que a tenho usado (basicamente terminar o último casaco, alguns arranjos e umas fantasias para a peça da festa de Natal do Infantário), estou muito satisfeita.
The key feature on this machine is the integrated IDT system; I’m able to say that it works wonders, I barely need pins/basting anymore to hold seams…
