How many adjectives can you fit into one post header?
Could probably manage a few more but pastel, floral, denim and ginger will do, oh and stretch.
That’s this skirt. All of the above. Started at #cbrsewingcrew, finished in time for the heatwave.
It’s Closet Case Files Ginger jeans pattern, used to make a skirt. Not by sewing up the legs! 😯 No, by not cutting them in the first place. I guess you could call in extreme pattern modification.Have you tried any major pattern changes?
Some really pale blue top-stitching and finally the perfect use for some Cath Kidston buttons. Continue reading
This is Grainline’s Morris blazer, just right for spring or autumn or fall.
I’ve read a few posts about issues with the front facing. I came prepared to battle it into submission. I didn’t interface it at all. That seemed to be the cause of some of the problems. I thought as I was using quite a heavy cotton with no stretch, maybe wasn’t needed, or maybe it would be worse………… Continue reading
I thought this pattern would be a perfect match for this fabric when I saw Handmade Jane’s post. This is more fabric from deep stash, a Japanese textured cotton, quite heavy, almost feels like a barkcloth.
The pattern is Simplicity 2451 described, not very effusively on the packet, as a ‘skirt in 2 lengths.’
It is, but it is also a skirt with pockets (yay!), and 2 silhouettes, one a pencil shape the other with a pretty almost fluted hem. It is also on a yoke, making it both comfortable and flattering.
I chose the short length with fluted hem.
I took this skirt along to a #CBR sewing meet. Every second sewist had used the pattern and had good reports.
Do you have a favourite skirt pattern?
My first Named pattern and I like it. This is the Saunio cardigan.
Worn here with my linen Sophie dress.
This fabric, has been marinating in the stash for nearly a year. It’s from Alla Moda in Brisbane, what a divine shop! It is a silk taffeta, stitched and sequinned in a large free-wheeling floral pattern. I bought it with no idea what I’d do with it. I think Saunio is perfect for it. Continue reading
This make was inspired by Sue’s 3 (not one)! lovely Jenna cardigans, all so different. You can see them here, here and here.
mmm, how hard is it to photograph dark fabric?? It’s really a lovely fluffy multi-hued deep navy.
The Jenna pattern is by Muse from NZ. Nice to be able to support a company from down-under.
It is described as ‘a fitted, round neck, button-up cardigan with two length options (hip or waist length), three sleeve options (long, 3/4, or short), and optional shoulder yoke detailing.’
I chose the hip length, with long sleeves and sans the yoke detailing. Continue reading
