  • I believe the illustration is incorrect – if you follow the text instructions, the method described is her preferred method for attaching bias binding. The illustration should show the wrong side of the fabric instead of the right side. I was just following that same step a few hours ago and used the text for guidance instead of the picture.

    Wow it’s been a long time since I last posted! Not sewing anything at the moment as my basement (where my sewing area is) is currently drying out. Last weekend my hot water heater decided to finish completely rusting out and flooded the basement carpet. Fortunately discovered it fairly quickly so we were able to clean up as it leaked. Praying no…[Read more]

    @lightningmcstitch yes I do have a pic! @hazel I’ll attach it below. Liesl’s instructions made it so very easy!

    I’m actually in the position of needing to alter that lovely eggplant chambray cinema dress I made because it is too loose, what would be the easiest way to size it down? Just pinch in at the sides?

    Wow it’s been a while since I posted here! Summer has been busy and I’ve been sewing less. I’m finally starting on the Lisette Moto dress I cut out months ago in Cotton + Steel rayon, I need to finish it before the weather cools down!

    Once that’s done I’ve got a couple Gallery tunics and Ben’s Goldstream pea coat next in the queue, along with…[Read more]

    Maggie, so sorry about your break-in. Even though you didn’t lose anything terribly sentimental an event like that can leave you quite unsettled. My husband and I experienced a similar event (although all the thieves took was our television) 3 months before our first baby was born – we came home from work to find our front door kicked in. I felt…[Read more]

    How fun, Nicole! When I was still in school in Sydney I did my work experience at my local veterinarian’s office – but was then selected out of students from all over the city to do a week of work experience at Taronga Zoo! Being an Assistant Zookeeper in the African mammals section was and still is one of the highlights of my life ;).

    She looks incredible! Totally should put her on the pattern cover – love the combo of fabrics she used. Can’t wait to get this pattern for myself!

    @motherof5 same thing happened to me! And when I try to mark them ‘read’ or delete, it won’t let me. Strange…

  • @motherof5 hm that’s a good idea!

    Working on finishing my Girl Friday culottes! I put them on hold over Mother’s Day as my parents drove in to spend a few days. Then Olivia had her first birthday Friday and the sewing kept getting put off. I’m in the middle of inserting the zipper. I’m making them out of graphite kona cotton, since I’m not sure how this style will look on me and I…[Read more]

  • @roundtheworldgirl thanks! That looks doable and gives me food for thought.

    Also meant to ask above, has anyone modified the Fairy Tale dress to have a basque waist? Since it’s the first pattern I thought of and all the Disney princesses have that pointed waistline 😉

  • My daughter is currently obsessed with Sleeping Beauty, so for her 3rd birthday this summer I’m thinking of sewing a princess dress for her. Any ideas on which patterns/alterations/hacks I could use? For the pink dress. I googled patterns but the only one I found is out of print and copies on eBay run $25-40. Plus I’d rather work with a pattern…[Read more]
