    Well, my quest for the perfect fit is improving almost daily, as I make more and more mistakes…no, seriously I am finally getting g to grips wit it, I think. I’ve made some Oliver+s patterns too of course, a new bubble dress for my granddaughter Rose and teaching my daughter to sew the baby layette pattern for the new baby, Chloe. But also lots…[Read more]

    Wouldn’t it be great if Kate turned out to be a secret sewist and she started ordering dozens of Oliver+s patterns and posting them in our Flickr group?

    Liesl could introduce a new boys blazer, called of course, The George, and a new unisex baby pattern called The Charlie… Or alternatively, a girls’ pattern could be called, Buckingham Palace…[Read more]

    Hey Nicole, didn’t I see your layette in grey as well? Great neutral choice.

  • Sarvi suggested Top of the Lake to me a while back and I loved it!

    Thanks justsewit, I was thinking of making it for my latest granddaughter and I have the smallest size pattern, so thanks for the encouragement. I would measure her if I could only get her to uncurl from that foetus-like knees up position for long enough to use the measuring tape!

  • I like the ribbon detail, Nicole. Did you add it afterwards by hand or something? I might do this, I really like it.

    Looks like Nicole’s tip works really well. I am in process in of sewing bodice to skirt so can’t tell completely yet, but it’s looking good so far! Thanks,Nicole.

    Thanks, nico!e- I’ll have a look immediately as I am just about to sew scalloped side seams and stopped to check on here in case anyone had replied.

    Hi ladies,
    Two questions- I am making my second bubble dress and want my scallops to stand out more. I noticed in a photo of Nicole’s of a dress made from a fabric with big circles (bubbles?)on, that her scallops look great. What’s the secret? Stiff material? Interfacing in scallops?
    Second question, somewhere on line whilst I was searching I saw…[Read more]

    Sarvi, it’s a lovely, creative thing to do and you should definitely not feel guilty. There are much more harmful, expensive hobbies and it’s a wonderful way to express a love of design, colour and texture. Sew more, not less!

    Elizabeth Zimmerman is great, as Sarvi says, and fun to read! Even if you are not keen on what she knits she is an education! I’ve got two of her books and although the only thing I’ve knitted is the baby surprise jacket, I really enjoyed reading her words. And the jacket was interesting to knit too. You sound to me as if you are feeling very…[Read more]
