    I made the lydia shirt with sloped V neck from a Knit-like fabric with Missoni imitation print. I also made a straight black skirt from cheap polyester as a sewing project for my home-sewing classe…

    cfvermeulen commented on the project Carol

    Just made them tonight and they look great! Really simple pattern and great fit. I used the medium size, but cut off a little extra from the top, as it was coming way too high in the waist for me.

    cfvermeulen commented on the technique How to Sew and Turn Narrow Straps

    cfvermeulen commented on the technique Sew an All-In-One Facing

    I did this with my azalea yoke made of tricot. Was a bit hard to figure out first and the stretchy fabric did not help, but the finishing is soooo professional. I could not have done it with hand s…

    62ae5368311679bb9217d134c8146703fd923430_listing

    Top from the Azalea pattern. I did not have enough voile to do the full gather, so it is not as full as it might have been when using the complete width suggested in the pattern. Yoke is tricot rem…
