All the Gingers

Disclaimer: I was given the pattern for free as a "thank you" for testing the pattern.

All four pairs!
This post has been long time coming.

Ginger Jeans was my first pattern to test, ever. When I signed up for testing, I had no idea it will be jeans! If you've read my blog, you know I am no stranger to sewing jeans. I was a bit nervous, to be honest. What if, well, it will suck?!

Buying a sewing machine - what to keep in mind

Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored by any sewing machine manufacturers. It may sound like I am talking down one brand and praising the other. That is not the case. The only one I am talking down, is me. 

Buying your very first sewing machine can be exciting but also difficult. It is so easy to get confused with seemingly endless choices of models and makers on the market. 
Finding the perfect machine for you depends a lot on what are you planning to use it for. Sewing clothes? Mending or upcycling clothes? Or quilting? Or maybe all of the above?

Most of the brands out there try to cater for all the sewists. 
Before you hit the stores, do some research on different brands and features the machines have.


The spring came abnormally early this year for us. I guess it was expected after such a shitty winter we had - almost no snow, too warm and etc.
Days are already longer! There's actual daylight outside when I get back from work!!!

Anyways, as you know I had some trouble with my eyes. I am happy to report that I finally got my new specs and things are looking so much better! For reals! Ok, to sewing!

What: two T-shirts
Pattern used: have no idea, but I think it's from an older Burda magazine
Fabric used: all three fabrics are 98% cotton, 2% elastane

If you've read the blog(as little as I do write) you most likely know that I am terrified of prints. But I am trying to "self medicate" with buying more printed fabrics AND sewing them into actual garments I then force myself to wear. (I am a terrible person).
