New sewing patterns [March 2020]


Here's a list of new sewing patterns from this month. I loved seeing such a list on another blog, but since they don't make that list anymore I decided to make it myself. I hope you enjoy and find yourself inspired in this current situation.
This list is not intended to be exhaustive. If you know other new patterns (for women's clothing), that were released in march, please tell me in the comments. As I started with this list mid-month it is quite likely that I missed something.

Hacking sewing patterns: Lou Box Dress 1 from Sew DIY

This post refers to a sewing pattern, which I received for free as part of testing another pattern. 

This fabric has been in my stash for about 2 years. I remember I took it out several times, thinking about what I would like to make out of it. A sweater? A skirt? Naaah, this fabric was meant to become a dress!
And I had in mind the exact type of dress I wanted - but despite searching through the whole wide web for hours I never found THE pattern. You know, the one. The perfect one.

So I took a sewing pattern I knew and trusted the designer and hacked it. VoilĂ ! Here it is:

Did you always want to dive into making your own sportswear, but are struggling with what to look out for? Look no further, 'cos I got you covered - at least on what not to do!

Naaah, of course I'm just kidding, it's not THAT bad. Or is it? See for yourself!

Yet another Sew diy Lou Box Top


I think it's safe to say I have a thing with Sew DIY sewing patterns. So far I've shown you a Nita wrap skirt, a Lou Box Dress 2, two normal Ali Sweatshirts (old versions), another modified Ali Sweatshirt (old version), as well as two slightly modified Lou Box Tops (one with cats, the other with flowers).
I have also taken the Lou Box Dress 1 pattern and modified it for a very comfy yet flattering mini dress a few weeks ago, but haven't shown it yet.

Today I'm showing you a very old project, my very first Lou Box Top.

This week I have something special for you: A current project, which I have just finished last week. Finally new stuff, that's not already been worn to death! Yay!

Last week I told you I have been working on three different projects, so obviously it's one of them. In fact, it's the most important of the three: a new bag!
Read on to learn how to start making bags and what I have to say about Swoon sewing patterns.

Oh no, another week without a proper review? Damn, Minn, what are you thinking??

Hehe. Don't worry, guys, just grab a cup and read on what I am currently working with and on!
Also, look who tries very hard to keep me from work:

First make & review: Sequoia Shorts - Sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch


Pants with a zip fly - worn by almost everybody, feared by many sewists and definitely high up the skill rating... do you agree? To be honest, I did fear them a little bit, but I knew: with proper instructions it's not a problem at all to make them.

Here they are, my first ever self sewn fancy pants with a zip fly: My Sequoia Shorts.
