I made a dress!

No pattern, with a knit fabric ( Not sure why this seems to scare so many people? It was pretty easy.), and I even did a fancy neckline and armhole thing, using facings. The only downside was that I when I was trimming the neck seam thing, I cut into the dress! Nooooo! Such a bummer. But I wore it out to play badminton last night, and am wearing it now. Oh! I traced a tank top and just traced it longer, done. If I had ever installed a sleeve before, I would have done that, but I haven't yet.…

Colette Pastille muslin

Wow, so, this dress, after trying to figure out what the book was saying about sleeve facings, was actually really quick and easy.

That might make my sewing hobby a lot more challenging, eh?  I was reading ahead in…

Once upon a time ...

I used to sew. For myself, my sister, my mother, and even friends. I always had at least one project on the go, and felt bereft if I had less than 3 or 4 lined up in my head!


Fast forward to today, and  after too many years, I've picked up a needle again. Therapy, of sorts, while I'm in recovery from a long term illness, and it's working.


For now, I'm sewing up a simple skirt from a remnant (pictures to follow), and combing the 'net for inspiration. My newly…

The 60-yard Flamenco skirt

I had just recently heard of Sew Weekly, and really wanted to start this week, but I was working on this darn skirt that had taken me almost 10 times as long as planned.  Then the red, white, and blue theme rolled around, and well, that skirt is RED.

I had planned on making this a very simple skirt.  It was intended as a casual/practice skirt…

Spark My Interest Skirt

I apologize for not posting for a while; life has been hectic but fun. This project runway inspired design was on my to-do list for a while. I’m very glad I took the time to sit and make it. Here is my review :)
