My workshop is actually located both in my bedroom and living room (wherever I can make some room). In my opinion, there are so many things that we should learn how to do by ourserlves! So, you will find here all my DIY tutorials for clothes (and cosplay), accessories, useful everyday items and tricks.

Well… once again, I had some pairs of jeans to do something with (my geeky man’s trousers keep on worning out so fast…). I look up on the internet for something quite easy to make with it (because I didn’t want to throw them away but I still wanted to get rid of them pretty quicly…). I didn’t find nothing useful and easy to sew online, so I looked around the living room. I saw my very old inflatable pouffe… I ended telling myself that it urgently needs a quick make over 🙂
So here it is, my old friend, the inflatable pouffe, with a brand new upcycled jeans cover!
Here is the pattern I’ve made for the model I had (55cm diameter, 25cm height):
My boyfriend sorted his clothes out, the ones he did want to keep, the ones he didn’t. The result was 3 bags of old clothes going freely to Les Petits Riens and 2 pairs of trousers going, also freely, to the trash bin because they were pierced. I don’t like throwing things away. I took them back and decided to unpick them, one by one. Finally, I made myself a summer jeans jacket. The lining is quite strange because I use some fabric left-overs to construct it, but I don’t care…
Here’s the pattern I created for this jacket [S-size]
Here is a very pretty purple ruffle skirt I bought in a flea market for € 1. Unfortunately, it is a M size… she is way too large and too long for me. And as long skirts don’t fit small ladies like me, I decided to turn it into a dress!
I completely unpicked it (the lining too) and I removed the zipper. I took the pattern of my previous empire dress and cut the bra upper part in the skirt top part.
I sew everything back in place, reinstalled the zipper and added a pink belt on the seam under the bust. There you go!
Here is the sewing pattern I used: SEWING PATTERN – SHORT SLEEVELESS EMPIRE DRESS [S-size]
