At Ease!

The girl asked me if I would sew her military uniform, something tight and sexy. I was a little reluctant, but after searching the internet I saw that there was anything and everything.
I decided for a classic costume with accessories that remind us of the military ... the silver stripes on collar and left sleeve, silver buttons and epaulets on the shoulders.
Skirt is a classic pencil skirt.
 



I made the matching Side cap, so-called Garrison cap... didn't turn out so bad considering that this is the first attempt.

Red Gingham Blouse

Somehow it seems that I'm always focused on dresses and garments for the lower body and I'm avoiding blouses and shirts. I have to change that immediately.
This is my new wrap blouse.

 I cut this wrap blouse in the same way as wrap dresses, only shorter.

Green

I really needed a skirt that is suitable for driving on a bicycle because I am always struggling with the lack of time and constantly rushing to work in the last minute.
I used the rest of the fabric of my wide green slacks and sewed a skirt with front pleat. I already have one blue jeans skirt with front pleat and I really like it.


The blouse is cream-colored cotton and has a delicate green pattern print
                                                                               Lack of cotton fabrics is that they are quite crumpled. Even iron can't fully straighten them but I have no problem with it.

Culottes

Women's Culottes = a split or divided skirt or any garment which "hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants". Cyd Charisse wears culottes in the "Silk Stockings" movie.

"Silk Stockings" movie with Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse




I found this pattern in one of my older Burda magazines, 6/2001.
Pattern was not exactly what I wanted, only front was cut with pleat and the back was cut as wide leg trousers, without pleat so I made it with both front and rear pleats.

My first finished Bullet Bra!!!!!

I made it!!!!!
I finally made ​​my first bullet bra and I'm verry verry happy!! 
For my taste is however a little bit too pointy. 
I'll tried to mitigate the point.

Bullet Bra is made of black satin and cotton lining.

Daisy in Dalmatia

Hello people!
It was a time for me to use a few vacation days..to move from home a little bit and forget everyday fash.
I and my family we visited relatives in Zadar  beautiful old town on Adriatic coast. We enjoy salty sea air for five days. We ate too much and as a result now I have to go on a diet.
I took a few nice pieces of clothing, but the only one we managed to perpetuate is my Daisy Wrap Dress.
