And now for something completely different







Nem acredito que fiz a minha primeira peça de roupa! Pode não parecer nada de especial mas estou mesmo contente, até porque há que tempos que queria fazer algo para o Tiago. Segui as instuções à risca e acrescentei um bocado de fita encarnada para o ajudar distingir a parte da frente da parte de trás das calças. Agora vou atirar-me ao meu vestido!

I can't believe I sewed my first clothing item! Maybe this is no big deal to you but I'm really happy, especially since I've been wanting to make something for Tiago for ages. I followed the directions and I even added a piece of red ribbon so he can see what's the front and what's the back of the pyjama bottoms. Now it's time to sew myself a dress!

    Depois de tantas fotos tiradas o Tiago já merecia uma prenda hand made.
    Fico à espera do vestido e do chapéu.

How's life in Lisbon, sunny I imagine. I think you really need to come to amsterdam again to buy new buttons in the funny store on the canal! Looking forward and I give you a call soon.

  15. How fun! I am excited to sew a piece of clothing next. I recently did my first apron and it was so much fun - and I don't even cook! I found your blog a couple of weeks ago and you are also a "contact" of mine on Flickr.. and then I found you again through the forum of the Decor8 blog class. Coincidence! Just wanted to say hello.
