Sew German goes INSA

Yesterday I finally got a book I wanted for some time.

This book is full of wonderful ideas and patterns. The first one I had to try was INSA.

This skirt is jut too cute not to try.

I used fabrics I had on hand just to give the pattern a try, but I'm sure there will be more. This pattern is soooo versatile, there are sooo many possibilities.

getting ready for spring

It has been so nice the last few days. Spring is finally here (at least for now).

We have a lot of little visitors on our deck. These little squirrels are just so much fun to watch.

For quite a while I wanted to sew a peasant top but was intimidated by all the ruffles, but it was not half as bad as I thought. Actually it was quite easy and fun to sew. I'm sure there will be more to follow. This one is a blouse I made for my niece in size 4/5 the fabric is light and airy. It is a little too cold to wear it now, but it will be perfect for those hot summer days.
