    Make a muslin first and mark it up with a sharpie. Have someone help you fit it to your body. Buddy up with a friend to make it a fun sewalong :) Natasha T.

    Even though I don’t really quilt, I decided that last Christmas, I would make my sister a quilt as her gift. I’m still convinced that one is either a clothes sewist or a quilter. For me, I would mu…

    I learned this one from doing oliver+s patterns: when doing hems or facings, machine baste the fold line first, using the throat plate as your measuring guide. Much easier and more accurate than f…

    I made this little dress and bloomer set for my friend Sarah, whose baby girl is due in August. I added ruffles to the bloomers, because who doesn’t love a ruffle butt on a baby girl? ;-). I pick…
