    cequimby commented on the project 2 Tone Corduroy Skirt

    I’ve made the same mistake! Only mine was on a vest with princess seams, so every other panel had the nap running in a different direction. Whoops! I agree with your mom – call it a design feature …

    cequimby added the project Birthday Sweetheart Dress
    051_listing

    This dress is a reminder for me of why sewing is so awesome. My body ratios are not ready-to-wear friendly (small bust and waist, hips to be reckoned with), and I’ve never been able to wear sheath …

    236_listing

    I bought this black burnout gauze on a whim through Fabric.com – had to get my total up for free shipping, you know? It has a horizontal stripe and is breezy and lightweight and soft. I decided it …

    cequimby commented on the project Peg Bundy Would Be Jealous of These Pants

    Love em! I love the print – I’ve been thinking about doing some pants in a giraffe print which gives a similar vibe. I love yours, so I might just have to try making my own!

    004_listing

    I’m a long time admirer of Sewaholic patterns, but this is my first time actually sewing one up. I got a little carried away with modifications, but I think this is a great pattern. As a pear-shape…

    So cute! I just saw a vintage dress like this in black velvet with white satin where you’ve color blocked in red. So classy!

    cequimby commented on the project Climb On! Active Wear Pants

    These are so cool! I love seeing active wear garments that people sew. It seems like they incorporate a lot of cool techniques and fabrics, and you end up with something incredibly practical but st…

    Shoot, I tried to respond to your post digitallux and I accidentally hit the innappropriate button instead. I’m sorry.

    I understand what you mean about borrowing from and referencing other culture…

    It’s interesting to hear this perspective. I don’t think BurdaStyle would intentionally post anything that they knew could be interpreted as racist. I guess I’m just surprised that this slipped thr…

    cequimby commented on the article Nature's Child: 9 New Girl's Patterns

    I was debating with my husband the other day if a white person could dress as Pocahontas for Halloween and have it be respectful. I was arguing that maybe if you were aiming for a specific historic…

    If you knew as soon as you saw the first photo that some people were going to “get their knickers in a twist”, then obviously you too recognized the racist connotations here. And instead of thicken…

    It’s not really the feather that bothers me… Mostly it’s just the chanting thing. That silly hand-over-the-mouth chanting was invented by a dominant culture to poke fun at a minority culture… i…

    Really? Maybe I am reading the photo wrong, but in the top photo it looks like she’s making that generic “Indian chanting” noise. And while a kid might not know any better, the adult who chose the …

    Gingham blouse from vintage pattern: McCall’s 5946. Is the gingham craze over? I may be late to the party, but I’m still a big fan. Paired together with my gingham pants, that’s three sizes of ging…

    I know! I’m definitely buying that pattern. It’s the first time I looked at a sizing chart and found a size that reasonably fit my measurements.

    Sorry to repost these, but I wanted to show how I solved the problem of the severely baggy bottom on these shorts (see last photo). This pattern has an elastic waistband in back, which I thought wo…

    I bought this rayon (?) fabric off of eBay a few months ago because I couldn’t resist the print. I have a lot of reservations about buying from eBay. The best deals are usually the things which don…

    This is just a quick project I turned out in an afternoon, as I am on a summer sewing high lately. I made several modifications: graded out from a size 6 to a size 14 (!) between bust and hips, sco…
