bellinda81 added the project Black Stirrup Legging
My mother-in-law found this pattern for me at a garage sale and I thought it was great. I remember wearing this style of leggings when I was a kid. I thought I’d bring this 90’s fashion trend back …

bellinda81 added the project Basic Knit Top
I used a basic knit pattern I have had for years (1995 I think) to make this top. It was very quick and easy. The only alteration I made was adding binding to the neckline.

bellinda81 added the project Wool Dress
This is the first fully lined dress I have made. The lining was a bit tricky to work with. I made the top part too big so had to bring it in quite a bit at the sides (since then I’ve been reading u…

Your skirt looks great. I have this pattern printed and cut out – can’t wait to give it a go too!
bellinda81 commented on the project My Yellow Anda
This is a lovely dress. I also thought this pattern looked a little boring but your dress makes me want to use this pattern and make my own Anda dress. Great work!

bellinda81 commented on the project Retro Azalea Dress
Thanks for the nice comments. I made the pattern a size smaller as I was using stretch fabric, this is probably why it looks more fitted than some of the other Azalea dresses. I also omitted the zi…

What a great idea. I’ve been looking around for generic labels to add to my clothes but this is so much better. Thank you for showing us how to do this in the how-to. I will be getting some twill …

bellinda81 commented on the project Angled Knit Top & City Short
Hi, I have added a pic of the top layed out flat. It is one piece of material and folded along the straight side. It’s should sit on my hips a bit lower and be more angled but I made it a little to…

TOP: This is the first knit fabric I have worked with and the pattern was so easy! The pattern said to have raw edges, but I overlocked the edges and then rolled them and did a narrow hem. The top …

Nice top! I like the two different looks with the different colour under-top. I also like the sleeves, great work!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Yes, the smocking is easy to do, and I did exactly what danamon_o_fun said. I also had no idea how to do this until I asked at the fabric shop and couldn’t b…

bellinda81 added the project New Look Dress
This was an easy dress to make. I had to adjust the shoulders straps and top strap as the smallest size ended up way to big. I like the pin tucks on the front of the pattern and the sash gives it a…

I made this dress to wear Christmas Day 2007. It is simple to make without a pattern. Simply 2 rectangular pieces of material (twice the width of my body).
