Free sewing pattern design - Back pocket

You love pockets. You don't understand, why 'fashion' seems to not know that. Why so many clothes come without pockets. Why even so many sewing patterns come without pockets.
Sounds familiar?

Long story below, short story here: I prepared my back pocket pattern for you and you'll find it here to download for free.

Sewing a half circle skirt - Spinn me right round, Baby!

One of my sewing goals is to try out and wear more styles. After refusing to wear skirts and dresses for years, it is now time to explore the crotch-free world!

I've tried a wrap skirt, I've tried a pencil skirt, and now curtains up for the half circle skirt!

Sewing pattern review: Nita wrap skirt from Sew diy

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

In January I admitted that I never owned a pencil skirt, so I sewed my own (check out my Pirate Pencil Skirt here). Another garment I never owned is a wrap skirt. I've had wrap shirts, yes, though they do look a bit strange on me and they are definitely not my style - at least not anymore. But since then, I developed a lot - my mind as well as my body - and nowadays I think I made good progress defining my style. Now I just need to make the corresponding garments!

So when Beth from Sew diy offered me one of her patterns (as a 'thank you' for testing one of here awesome patterns, the Ali Sweatshirt), I just had to take the opportunity. There are many other posts about the Nita out there, and each one of them is such a beautiful make. I couldn't resist.

Was it worth it? Read on to find out!

Damn, that title is a cheap joke, I know!
But do you want to know, what doesn't look cheap? (Yep, that's another one!)

These leggings are, at least for me - and who am I to care about what some stranger thinks. 😉
Long story short, I love them and I wear them a lot. Sewing goals accomplished!
