    Img_8501_listing

    I made this underbust corset for my sister, who is a big fan of science combined with good design. I don’t know if a skeleton print fabric used to make a corset quite counts…

    Img_3611_listing

    While I would love to say I always swan about the house in woven dresses with fitted bodices, that would just be a lie. I love my comfy clothing as much as the next person, but I also want to look …

    CationDesigns commented on the forum topic Go back to diagrams!

    I agree with the previous posters — the line drawings are so much more helpful when browsing! I also can’t find the “projects made with this pattern” collections that used to be associated with th…

    CationDesigns added the project The Cats Pajamas
    Img_3044_listing

    I found this spectacular sheet set at the thrift store and fell in love with the cats frolicking all over it. The color, not so much. Since I really wanted to be able to wear it, but didn’t want to…

    I wanted to make an extremely fitted sheath dress ( la Joan of Mad Men fame) with this spectacular fabric that I’ve been saving. I had less than 1.5 yards of it, so I knew it had to be a sheath dre…

    All the information about fabrics is on my blog; I don’t think I needed more than half a yard of the stretch lace? The directions are based on your own well-fitting tee, so it can be whatever size …
