Stained Glass Overcoat

Posted in Cardigan/Jumpers, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2017 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I have just finished this bright and chirpy overcoat!! I’m happy with it but it’s one of those garments that I’m not sure where to wear it to, that’s if I don’t sell it on Depop (@montanastrange). Then again I do have a random collection of clothes, I’m leaning towards keeping this one to myself.

If you have followed me long enough, you may remember that I have used this sewing pattern (M6084) twice before (excuse my fat face) but as thick coats.

This unlined overcoat is part of a collection. I haven’t come up with a name yet… Afro Punky and Tribal Goth come to mind but I’m still undecided.

Here is photographic evidence *Law & Orders dun duns sound effects*

I look so mischievous

Lace cuff detail 

Featuring my odd Doc Martens, they got a lot of attention today. I had my picture taken for a bridal challenge due to these, glad I could help!

I’m thinking about adding pockets because: 1) FUNCTIONAL! 

2) I don’t like chucking things into my bag and

3) there’s so many ways to attach them

I don’t really want them traditionally sewn so to speak. Would it be odd to place them unevenly? Say one way higher than the other? I am the one designing it sooo anything goes I guess!

Happy sewing!

Jigsaw Cardigan

Posted in Cardigan/Jumpers, Dresses, Knitting, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2017 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I thought my outfit today deserved to be shared and it’s about time you met my Jigsaw Cardigan.

I matched it with my handkerchief skirt dress I also made… I should really make another one already.

Featuring my African print triangle bag, will post soon

I got the idea when I began knitting it, I like to buy my yarn in bits and pieces rather than in bulk (I’m not sure why, to create the illusion of saving money as well as space?. I thought “why not use different shades of purple and differing textures too?” 

I wanted to knit this particular cardigan in black for years after asking my mom to do it. I’m happy with the final garment but I was looking for buttons to add, I was thinking maybe different shades of the same button but now I’m not sure that I want any

I hope you’re all having a good Me Made May!
