Just a safety reminder for those of you with little ones:  I, like a lot of you probably do, always leave my sewing machine and serger plugged in, but turned off.  I figured that this was safe…Continue

"Thanks for posting Liz - I think that after I tackle my Christmas sewing (ahem....), I'll go back and do the challenges I missed.  I think I did 34 or 35, so that only leaves 18.  Oh my. "

Green Lanvin Dress--looking for a pattern

"http://malepatternboldness.blogspot.ca/2010/05/something-smells-selfishy-or-elaine.html There is a passing similarity to Simplicity 6672, but it's not exact.  If you extended the collar pattern piece and left off the gathering tabs it…"

"Thank you thank you thank you!  I was thinking that the front must be >=1 circular ruffle, but this gives me a closer look.  What a great find! I'll send her a message if I get stuck. You've made my day!  :)"

I've been wanting to copy Joan's Wave Dress for about a year now, and I have a pattern to use for the base sheath dress, and the sleeve ruffles are straightforward,  but that neck ruffle confounds me.  I don't have any patterns like that to use; I'm thinking that it is a regular peter-pan style collar in the back, then it…See More

Simplicity 3673 into maternity

"That's such a beautiful dress.  (I wish I had been sewing when I was pregnant, because there wasn't much choice in the shops and I ended up wearing some atrocious dresses!)"

Hello Vicki, gosh, what a generous suggestion! Sorry I didn't reply before, I have been having router trouble so I haven't been as attentive as usual... we have a new router now so normal service resumes...

Of course I am interested but firstly: I live in England so the postage might be a pain for you, and second, what are you looking for? I haven't got any patterns as nice as this but I have some nice 50s dresses, what bust size are you looking for (if that's not too personal!)? I can take some photos of what I have and you can still say no if you don't like any of them of course....

again thanks x

No worries Vicki, I knew you hadn't, although I have forgotten to message you to say I posted the pattern in exchange last week. I hope it gets to you safely, Canada seems very far away all of a sudden! Cx
