Sem escrever por uns tempos… - Not blogging for a while...

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)
Desta vez a vida meteu-se mesmo no caminho e não vou conseguir manter o blog actualizado assim como comentar nos vossos blogs (vou espreitando sempre que possa, mas sem deixar comentários). O que acontece é que estou no processo de comprar casa nova, e as de vocês que já estiveram nessa situação sabem o tempo que se perde a tratar de tudo. Entretanto, antes de me despedir por uns tempos, aqui estão as fotos possíveis do fato bege (não pude perder grande tempo em sessões fotográficas, limitei-me a fotografar as peças como as usei nesses dias):

Colete e calças:

Detalhe do bolso atrás:

Blazer e colete usados com Levi’s:

O tecido veio com uma etiqueta de origem, que acrescentei ao lado da minha:

Mais algumas fotos do blazer no manequim:



Espero que tenham gostado desta aventura! Escrever no Couture et Tricot foi sempre um grande prazer para mim e permitiu-me conhecer muita gente maravilhosa e evoluir os meus conhecimentos sobre costura. Sempre tive muito carinho de toda a comunidade online e creio que deixo bastante material que pode ser consultado e apreciado durante esta pausa prolongada (prometo voltar quando as coisas assentarem).

Um grande abraço a todos(as), fiquem bem!

Tany

This time life definitely got in the way and I won’t be capable of maintaining my blogging activity for a while. I’ll try to keep up with everybody else’s work as possible, but I’ll be lurking and not commenting. I’m in the process of buying a new house (yes, I’m counting on a dedicated sewing space!) and those of you who went through this process know how time consuming it becomes.
Before leaving I have some pictures of the beige suit to share (these were taken as I wore the garments to work, there wasn’t time for a proper photo shoot):

The vest and pants worn with a short sleeve blouse:

Back pocket detail:

Jacket and vest worn with Levi’s jeans:

Here’s the fabric’s origin label next to may own:

A few more pictures of the jacket on the dressform:



I hope you’ve enjoyed this sewing adventure! Maintaining Couture et Tricot has always been a great pleasure for me and through blogging I was able to meet many wonderful people, to evolve my sewing skills and achieve great fulfillment. While I’m gone, all the articles are available for consult and I think there’s enough material to continue inspiring and helping those who strive for sewing information. I’ll never forget you guys and promise to return to normal blogging activity as soon as possible.

A big Hug to all,

Tany

Tany, I've been lurking for a long time now, and wanted to state how much I appreciate you posting your sewing projects. Your sewing is absolutely exquisite. You and Paco are two of my favorites, and I am very grateful to you both for taking the time to share your sewing passion and knowledge.

Good Luck with the new house.

Christina said...

Your outfit is just fab, Tany! I like how you can wear each piece several ways. Good luck with the house hunting.

Trudy Callan said...

Your outfit is wonderful as always. I wish you well in looking for a new home. I am so happy for you. You will be missed, and I look forward to your return.

Celina said...

Tany, já estou a sentir a tua falta! Nem posso acreditar que não vais andar por aqui nos próximos tempos. Acho que já sentimos todos a tua falta... Se passares pelos nossos cantinhos peço-te que deixes, de vez em quando, uma palavrinha que seja, será uma forma de sabermos que estás por perto.
Compreendo perfeitamente que o teu tempo disponível agora esteja comprometido. Deve ser uma grande aventura a procura de uma casa e tudo o que envolve. Só me resta desejar, sinceramente, que corra tudo pelo melhor e que encontres aquilo que procuras. Depois terás tempo de voltar a estas lides (e espaço para ocupares com mais criações). Fico à espera de ver imagens do teu novo quarto de costura ;)
Beijinhos,
Celina

Já estou com saudades. Estou tão acostumada a consultar seu blog semanalmente.Aprendi muito com você, e por favor, não tire seu blog do ar enquanto estiver afastada. Não se esqueça, também de postar as fotos da nova casa! Um abraço. Rosângela.

Lovely suit - looks fabulous on you!

Thanks Tany for all the wonderful posts you have done over the time you have been blogging. Good luck with the house hunting (and moving). You are right, it does take a lot of time and heaps of energy. Look forward to your return :)
Oh, and the suit is just gorgeous. You do such wonderful sewing.

Oh... Good Luck with your house hunting!
I have to say I love the jeans/vest/jacke combinatio best, especially with the animal print top underneath - I feel quiete inspired by it! Nice suit, though....
Hope to see you soon!

Gail said...

Good luck with the house hunting. Theres some lovely ones right here in my street. You could teach me to sew! Ok a little off your beat, I'll have to admire your sewing and style from a distance.

i think i never left a comment here ; today's the opportunity. Thank you for sharing all these great achivements of yours, good luck with your real life matters ... and for sure i hope you'll have your own sewing room and you'll go on and on into your sewing skills !

Audrey said...

How exciting to be buying a house, especially one with dedicated sewing space. Packing for your move, from your present home to your new house, will reveal how much sewing "stuff" you really have. I remember being surprised at how much fabric I had to pack and move. I really like the beige suit pieces. They can be combined with so many other garments, as you show in your photos. I especially like those snakeskin sandals!

anita said...

Beautiful suit, Tany! It's very versatile! Best of luck to you in purchasing a new home with a dedicated sewing room. How exciting!! :)

Els said...

Hope you will find the perfect house.
The new suit you made looks fantastic.

Hugs Els

sonoemi said...

A very nice look and versatility combined, a perfect job!
Good luck with buying a new house!

Mary Beth said...

Byeeee, Tany. See you again sometime.

Ana said...

Thanks for all your beautiful posts and for sharing all your sewing accomplishments with us lurking sewers.
Big hug,

Ana's Closet said...

Ficou o máximo, a combinação de peças!
O casaco foi daquela peças que me chamou a atenção. Agora, depois de ver a tua versão, ainda fiquei com mais vontade de fazer um para mim. Quem sabe?

Desejo-te as maiores felicidades na procura da nova casa. E... espero notícias!

Hey Tany,

The perfect reason to take a break from the blog. I hope you have great success with the house and the sewing - you really do have some wonderful work here that I have yet to read and enjoy, so thanks for all the work you've put online, it's appreciated by so many!

Sismada said...

Olá Tany,
eu não sou uma habituada dos posts ... bem queria ... eu sei como é difícil a nível de tempo ... passa passa e não damos por isso ...
Boa sorte na compra da casa espero que encontres aquela dos teus sonhos.
Aproveita esse tempo para também descansares pois bem mereces.
O conjunto ficou mesmo lindo e perfeito mas nada que não seja habitual da tua parte.
Um beijinho com carinho

Hope the house purchase goes smoothly! I've always been amazed not only by your work but your very detailed blog posts, in two languages no less. I will miss new posts from you while you are gone but there is plenty of info and inspiration in all your previous posts to keep us going.

Margi said...

I thought the jacket would look great with jeans! Thanks for sharing and look forward to your return when you have more time.

desingdreamer said...

That jacket (actually all three pieces) is gorgeous, as is EVERYTHING you make!
Good Luck in house hunting and purchasing!

Karen said...

Good luck with your house search. I hope it goes easily and that you get the sewing space you deserve.

Your blogging will be missed, but while you're away, I may go back to the beginning and start reading all over again, I'm sure I missed a few things worth learning.

Your suit turned out beautifully, by the way. I really love how the jacket and vest look with jeans, it's wonderful that you can dress it up or down like that.

Nile e Richard said...

Oi Tany.
Muito bonito o conjunto.
Até a volta.

Congratulations on your home acquisition. Exciting, yet stressful.

You provide so much information on this blog, (blogging is so time consuming) it is like reviewing an encyclopedia.....this blog reader can't thank you enough.

I look forward to going back and reading older posts and seeing pics of your new home, when you get settled in, of course.

Good luck,
Lynn

Só hoje consegui deixar comentários, mas já cá tinha vindo e fiquei triste ao saber que vais estar afastada do teu blog por uns tempos...

...mas como eu te compreendo! Eu própria estou a ter grande dificuldade de manter o meu blog actualizado devido ao meu trabalho...n tenho tempo nem paciencia para nada.


Bem, espero que consigas organizar-te e voltares renovada!!!

(ahhh também quero ver as fotos da nova casa!)

Beijinho grandes e cá estarei para assistir ao teu regresso e aos teus projectos.

Hi Tany, although I have been never commenting here before, I´d like to thank you for your inspiring blog. I like to watch what were you working on and the helpfull step-by-step´s. I was an active "hobbysewer" too (and paused because of minority of time)and you encouraged me to refresh this activity. Good luck in buying your house and enjoy the other nicer activities as furnishing, decorating etc. Kaatja

Desejo-lhe muito sucesso neste processo de profissionalização de sua arte.
Você esteve conosco todos os fãs de tantos, a sua prova. Basta, para gerir os recursos financeiros e de negócios (certamente não simples), mas obviamente você tem as ferramentas.
Boa sorte

Florença, Sensoussi

I wish you much success in this process of professionalization of your art.
You've been with us all so many fans, your evidence. Suffice it to manage the financial and business (certainly not simple), but you obviously have the tools.
Good luck
