    5c9b2f0df70b81555e2224b207cd625f8f3d127a_listing

    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 …

    8902965f8a2e9ff85ca1198f9bf9d94ee9af7ad7_listing

    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.

    Sorry I forgot to add the pattern I used (i have done that now). Thanks Laurina and everyone for the comments, I measures my hip and waist which were a size 12, but my bust was a size 10 and I forg…

    26681b7d13dd638e03ff35862dc2ceb4a5906143_listing

    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…

    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!

    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…

    Love your pants! Was it hard doing the piping? I have never done this before but would like to give it a go one day! The extra detail really makes the pants look wonderful. Great job!!

    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 …

    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 …

    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…
