    cmarrie added the project called Brown Roses Dress
    2014-10-21_15_25_27_listing

    Sheath dress made from Simplicity 2337 (same as my blue print linen dress). I modified the neckline and the back lower skirt. I used View A from McCalls’s 5523 and swapped out the vent for a flounc…

    cmarrie added the project called 1st Fall Top
    2014-09-16_08_06_09_crop_listing

    Simplicity 1280, one of their new patterns for fall. I made my first attempt to test the size and style out of an IYT knit I had. It’s very “fall” even if the print isn’t quite me. It came together…

    2014-09-16_14_16_41_listing

    I made this for the Burda Style Silk Moto Jacket Sewalong, and I am insanely proud of this jacket, as evidenced by my zillions of pictures. I strayed from the pattern in three ways. First, I interf…

    2014-08-11_09_34_09_listing

    My 3rd McCalls 6751, this time View D with the pleated long back. That back is very long…I’m not sure that I like it. But I like the rest of it and will wear it anyway. I think the drape of the f…

    cmarrie added the project called Summer Tank #2
    2014-08-09_11_28_11_listing

    This is version A of McCalls 6751. I sew VERY slowly, and still I was amazed at how fast it came together. A quick stitch up the sides and across the shoulders=done. Although, there IS that mile lo…

    cmarrie commented on the project Belcarra Blouse the Second

    Thank you! It’s just opaque enough that I don’t need anything underneath it.

    2014-08-07_16_13_30_listing

    McCalls 6751 View B, Size M. My only adjustment was my standard 1/2 inch forward shoulder. This (flowy) shapeless front silouette is new for me, and is taking some getting used to. It might have he…

    2014-08-01_19_16_15_listing

    My second version of Sewaholic’s Belcarra Blouse is one size larger than the first. I’m still working at making nice baby hems and bound openings, but it’s wearable despite the wonkiness. I spent s…

    2014-07-27_19_09_19_listing

    This is my first (but not last) Belcarra Blouse from Sewaholic.

    I finally finished a project using a cut of the J.Crew silk/cotton blend voile I bought earlier this spring. I successfully used …
