Hi Charlotte - thanks for the friend request, and the lovely feedback on my latest creation.  I am having so much fun with the Sew Weekly challenges and "meeting" so many talented women .... it is quite addictive.  I'm hoping some of the creativity I'm seeing will rub off on me!!  Happy sewing!

Hi Charlotte - have you come up with some ideas for your sister's wedding yet?

Hi Charlotte - thank you for the lovely message.  It is amazing how our confidence grows when we do something regularly .... how true that practice makes perfect (well almost perfect!!).  I can't wait to see what you come up with for the wedding - it will be amazing. In the mean time, enjoy the journey!

I live in Rochester south East kent... not too far from ldn.. and you? Im working with some friends to launch a sewing club .. its a bit slow as its difficult to get everyone agree the time and day.. I have been sewing for a year now and still got loads to learn...

I will for sure try to bribe them with cakes and drinks ! Dickens festival is very fun. You should come some time .This weeks challenge is perfect for a costume. Im really please to be part of comunity and share ideas and projects. Only people that sew know the feeling of completing a project and undertands its much harder than it looks...

Hi Charolette P.,

   I am in your boat with the grading/sizing patterns..oooh..driving me crazy.ha  I have sewed for years,but not alot for me lately.. I use to could buy a pattern and it fit..not any more.[old age is showing,ha].

     And I just recently got into the vintage patterns. and they are made soooo small. anyway, wanted to tell you ,I use the threads blog that they sent you..its great..but I also  met a girl named Andrea.. [so very nice]. Her blog is The New Vintage Wardrobe.. then go to her to grade a pattern... she explains it in simple language and  doesnt do a lot of steps..She is very nice.

  I got an old vintage pattern out ,that i was wanting to do I did just what she said, and it was so much easier than  all the books and stuff ,I had been reading..

  hope this helps..  Loved your dress this pretty.Happy Sewing.Judy

You  are welcome...

Yep... the vintage patterns REALLY depressed me too.ha Those ladies DEFINTILEY had TINY waist..

 I worked on  a vintage pattern yesterday trying Andrea's method of grading, It was simple. It didnt take hours either.. So much better..  I just wanted to see if it worked..

   Let me know ,how it comes out..and hey...dont be depressed... I told myself....I am NOT going by the vintage pattern sizes. I will stick with the Big 4 sizes..they sound better.ha. Have a great day.Happy Sewing,Judy

Thanks Charlotte.  It ended up only being 15cm high when it reached New Zealand, so no real danger, thankfully!  Terrible seeing what's been happening in Japan though - so sad and horrible!  :-(
