Ongoing project: Retro-style fuchsia coat – Projeto em curso: Casaco fúcsia estilo retro

Hello dear all, this is what I’m currently working on: BurdaStyle 2014/11 model 111: --- Viva a todos, este é o casaco que estou a costurar: BurdaStyle 2014/11 modelo 111:
This pattern is featured in the magazine with illustrated instructions, so my project notes will focus on what I've done differently from the instructions; so far I have the inner shell (lining, facings and upper collar – on the left) and the outer shell (the coat itself and inner collar – on the right) is almost done; I still have to press the hem allowances, clip and grade seams, etc
Este molde vem com instruções ilustradas na revista, portanto vou evidenciar essencialmente o que fiz de diferente; até agora completei a parte de dentro do casaco (forro, vistas e parte de fora da gola – à esquerda) e a parte de fora está quase pronta (o casaco propriamente dito, com a parte de baixo da gola, à direita). Na parte de fora ainda tenho que gradar valores de costura, passar a ferro as bainhas, etc.
I've made…

A quick & simple knitting project – Um projeto de tricô simples e rápido

Hello dear reader and friends, I’m just getting back "in business" after a long absence,… Life hasn't been easy on me lately and unfortunately I haven’t been able to update this blog or even sew/kit as much as I’d wish. Today I have a finished knitting project to share, a quick and easy garter stitch beanie. I used three skeins of DMC Nordic Spirit Ottawa yarn in violet and size 13 circular needles (10mm) to knit a garter stitch rectangle. I casted on 42 stitches and knitted for 11 ½ inches then bind off leaving a long yarn trail. I threaded the long train into a blunt needle and then stitched in-and-out along bound off edge. I pulled to gather top of the hat, gave it a few more stitches to secure it well and sewed the seam, shifting sides middle way (because of the turn-up).
