Ema Romper Pattern

My favorite garments for babies are overalls. Not just because they are so lovely, but also because it is the most comfy wear for baby and for the mom. Rompers don’t slip up or down and you don’t need to keep adjusting it all the time. And jersey/knit rompers are the best of all, because…

Harem shorts tutorial and free pattern – size 4-6y

It’s been two years since I started working on this harem pants/shorts pattern. I started with babies pants and then updated it to bigger sizes, as my boy is a big fan of this comfy wear. I am now working on making it available for PDF download on my online shop. But until it is…

Matilde Tunic Dress

It’s been a year since I made this summer dress. I loved the final result. It’s perfect for those really hot days (we have some heavy summer here), with some cute details. The straps make it easy to fit as our little girls grow. And voile, along with the back cut, gives it that final charm. Since…

Sewing for comfy boys

This post was due by November, but other projects are taking my full-time and the blog is on pause. Still, I just couldn’t skip this one, because I love how this pants turned out and my 5 year old loves it too. He only wears comfy pants, which can make shopping tricky sometimes. This is the first…

It’s summertime. We’re enjoying some timeless days. And I’m taking time to sew for my kids. Here are a few photos of a very simple self-drafted dress with crossed straps in the back (not easy to see in the photos), and the forest we visited last weekend. She chooses the fabric *** Chegou o verão. Temos aproveitado…

Inari Tee

Sometimes it takes longer than expected to simply take the next step. I finally decided to sew for myself.  Somehow, I don’t know why (or maybe I do), I’m always at the bottom of my priorities. But when you get to put your hands on that perfect fabric the world turns upside down! I received another…

Berninando

Ultimamente tenho costurado 70% do tempo com uma máquina corta e cose que comprei há uns anos numa promoção no Lidl. Demorei dois anos a desempacotá-la, depois da primeira experiência. Agora, há cerca de dois meses resolvi dar-lhe uma segunda oportunidade, dedicar-lhe mais tempo, persistir um pouco, ver uns vídeos…. A verdade é que desde…

This post is a bit late.

loja nova ♥ new shop

  Como sabem, há cerca de 2 anos comecei a fazer, por encomenda alguns artigos para bebés. Ultimamente a plataforma que uso é a Etsy. Por uma questão de foco, acabei por manter a loja apenas em inglês, e voltada muito mais para um público fora do país. Não por vontade própria, ou por estratégia, apenas porque…
