    baberahamlincln commented on the pattern Peplum Jacket 12/2012

    Hey has anybody tried to make this? I have a wool/silk blend I want to try but I’m not sure if I like the poofyness of the bottom of the peplum. I may see if I can just make it flat.
    I’m trying t…

    baberahamlincln commented on the project Wildflower Print Dress

    Newdresses2_listing

    This print reminded me of something vaguely southwestern and Mexican. So my first idea was a kind of poncho-like dress, but, that looked terrible on me, so I gathered the shoulders and put some pl…

    baberahamlincln added the project retro maxi dress
    Newdresses1_listing

    This print is so awesome and big and beautiful that I realised it needed to be showcased in a large format. I haven’t really gotten on board with the maxi dress trend, though I do have one I bough…

    baberahamlincln added the project eeeeeeee dress (80's dress)
    Sewing3_listing

    It’s a dress straight out of the 1980’s! I used the Butterick pattern below, shortened it quite a bit, and left out the petticoat option. I also lowered the neckline a bit and added a string tie.

    Honeycomb_dress1_listing

    I drafted this pattern based on my memory of a dress I once owned. The original dress was made for me by my neighbor when I lived in Athiémé, a small village in Benin, West Africa. It’s basically…
