February or What will I sew in the future

Like most people who sew their own clothes, I've got to a point where I need to plan more what I sew, so that I really wear it.

The thing is, there are some really awesome patterns out there and some really eye catching fabrics too but, not all suit me or my body. I might fall in love with beautiful flowery fabrics but how often will i really wear it? Very few.

To prove that, I took away all my 'I don't wear this' handmades and left only those that I really really like.

And this is what happened...

So I understood that I have to start planning outfits. But how does that work when everyday we see a new pattern?

So I went the other way around. I went to some shops, and checked out some Pinterest boards to get an idea of what kind of clothes caught my eye and suited me.

After that, I searched for patterns that were similar to the clothes I liked and this is what I came up with:

 

 

Top Left to Right: The  Bettine  dress, by Tilly and the Buttons;  Tania cullotes , by Megan Nielsen;  Addison  top ,by Seamwork; The  Hudson pants , by True Bias.  Bottom Left to right:  Blackwood cardigan , by Helen's closet;  The Orla dress , by french navy now;  Catarina dress , by Seamwork;  Rumi Tan k, by Christine Haines.

Now I just have to begin!

Um novo blog| A new blog

 

Um blog novo para uma etapa nova. 

Há muito tempo que queria mudar o aspecto do blog, o conteúdo, o nome, tudo! A verdade é que eu mudei, o mundo todo mudou, e Maçãs d'Amor tornou-se algo distante com cor-de-rosa demais. Aqui no Sul, parece-me um nome mais verdadeiro, mais azul.

Então, neste novo espaço, tenciono partilhar essencialmente o que coso e tricoto. Os tecidos e as linhas tornaram-se uma parte importante dos meus dias, e o tricot das minhas noites, por isso parece mais do que razoável criar-lhes um espaço exclusivo.

 

A new blog for a new step in life.

For some time now I have been thinking about changing the looks of my blog, the name, the extreme pinkness, well everything! The truth is Maçãs d'Amor  has become somehow distant from who I am now, from where the world is now. This new image, this new name Aqui no Sul ( here, in the South) sounds more realistic, more blueish...

So in this new space I intend to share what I sew and knit because sewing has become such an important part of my days and knitting of my nights.
