Saszetka nerka | Hip Pouch

W moim życiu nadszedł moment, kiedy stwierdziłam, że chcę saszetkę nerkę. Ot tak, bez powodu, tylko dlatego, że jeszcze nigdy takowej nie miałam. Na rower, na wakacyjne wyprawy, na co dzień.

Skorzystałam z instrukcji od Blonde Inspires. O ile wykrój jest fantastyczny, tutorial nie zawiera zbyt wielu szczegółów, więc szyjąc, zdałam się na swoją intuicję. Wyszło dobrze :) W końcu znalazłam zastosowanie dla czarnej tkaniny, która przypomina mi rozgwieżdżone niebo.

Komplet bielizny z satyny i koronki | Satin & Lace Lingerie Set

Halo halo, ktoś tu jeszcze zagląda? :D
Żyję, szyję, ogólnie mam się dobrze. Poza tym, od pewnego czasu doskwierała mi chęć powrotu do blogowania, więc oto jestem, z nową nazwą, odświeżonym szablonem i nadmiarem pomysłów na kolejne posty.

Poniższy komplet został uszyty jeszcze w lutym, jakoś w czasie okołowalentynkowym. (Zbieg okoliczności, Walentynki obchodzę, ale szerokim łukiem :p)

Wykrój na majtki pochodzi z Burdy 1/2012, model #127.
Pas do pończoch uszyłam z własnego wykroju. Jeśli ktoś z Was chciałby zrobić sobie podobny, zapraszam do skorzystania z mojego tutorialu. Oraz pochwalenia się efektem :)


I made this set in February, somewhere around Valentine's Day (Not that I celebrate it, that was a coincidence :p).
Panties are based on Burda 1/2012 #127 pattern. Garter was made with my own pattern. If you wish to sew yourself your own suspender belt, feel free to use my tutorial. And don't forget to share the results with me :)

Skort, Faux Circle Skirt - How to Make It - DIY TUTORIAL


Yes, this is another skort of mine :D

I'm very pleased that you guys liked the playsuit from my previous posts. I received a lot of kind words from you and they brought me lots of joy and motivation for further sewing :)
Anyway, Burda featured that playsuit once again, now as the member project of the week. Yay :)

Some people were interested in making their own skort, so today I will shortly tell you how to do it. I will focus on how to alter your trousers pattern. I'm not going to write here about sewing, since it is as easy as sewing an ordinary circle skirt :)

If you use this tutorial and create your own skort, show me what you did via comments or leave me a message at ugliness.blog@gmail.com. I'll be very grateful :)


Let's start!

Pattern choice
What we need is a simple pattern for trousers. The simpler, the better. Such patterns are often published in Burda and other sewing magazines. You can also get them online - you can use this or this model or download some free one, like this one. Choose whatever you like.
I used model #103 from Burda 12/2005.


Altering the pattern
We start with a basic pattern that probably looks similar to this:
Skort shouldn't be as fitted in crotch area as regular pants, so first thing we do is reshaping the crotch seam. Remove 5 cms or more.

If your patterns, like mine, has darts, remove them like this:

Next step is to draw lines along which we will be cutting the pattern. Draw 3 to 5 lines on each piece of pattern and cut. Don't cut the whole line, leave a few millimeters at the top. 
Now you can spread the skort legs as wide as you need. If you want to sew skort that looks like a circle skirt, you need to spread the pattern pieces to 90 degrees, like in drawing below.
You can draw the modified pattern on a new piece of paper. Draw a new, neat lower edge. (drawn in pink in the pic)
Last touch-ups: smooth the side line and - this is important - cut 1-2 cm from the lower edge side, as pictured below.

The final pattern should look somewhat like this. Of course, we repeat the procedure with the other part of pattern :)

If everything went right, you now have a ready pattern for skort or faux skirt :)

Now what's left is 2 or 3 hours spent on cutting and sewing... And you're ready to go outside wearing your cute new skort to have some silly photos of yourself taken :)
