Terracotta Antelope quilt

For once on this blog, we are going to talk about a home project ! I discovered quilting not long ago. In my head, quilting was kind of old-fashioned. Quilts were the kind of items you would find in an old family house, dusty, stained and made with weird scraps of flowery fabrics and bedsheets... But I discovered that there was really something else to it, and you could whip up some gorgeous, modern quilts! With really strong graphic vibes, and that's what I went for!.

Flowery black silk set

I looooove sewing bras. (You don't say?!) I know, it's no secret. But I wish I could say the same about panties... but I find it boring. But I still need panties in my life. And I love lingerie sets. So I've decided to sew a pair of panties each time I sew a bra. And I'm forbidding myself from wearing the bra until the undies are sewn (because I'm lazy and I would otherwise begin wearing the bra and would never sew the matching undies). It may seem a bit extreme but it works for me. For this set, I had a particular idea in mind: I wanted to upcycle an old silk pajama top that was lying, forgotten, at the bottom of my pj drawer.

A perfect(o) Quart coat

I've always looked at Pauline Alice patterns from afar, I don't really know why... I find them all beautiful and detailed, but I don't know, I've never really pictured myself in them. Not my style I guess. Quart was no different from the others in my heart, I thought it was nice, but didn't really lie the pleated side panels. But when I saw Pauline's hack to turn it into a perfecto, I didn't even think and I went for it!
