    cmarrie added the project called Snakeskin Moto Jacket
    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…

    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…

    It’s beautiful! And the pattern placement is perfect.

    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 …

    454_2014-05-07_12_02_10_listing

    I remember being disappointed when this 100% linen print arrived from an Elliot Berman Textiles purchase more than a year ago. It has been stuffed in my stash, avoided, because I had no idea what t…

    294_2014-04-15_10_43_07_listing

    My intention was to make a lace cardigan that would look nice with skinny jeans and boots. What I ended up with was something that makes me feel like I’m old trying to be young. You’ll have to take…

    973_2014-04-02_10_17_26_listing

    The Don Rickles dress is finished! This was a tough make for me. Not because the pattern was difficult (it wasn’t) but I’ve been actively trying to lose weight all winter and every time I put on th…

    928_2014-04-05_09_02_14_listing

    This is Butterick 5497, with a visual reminder of how the properties of a fabric vastly affect the outcome of a project. Using a slinky rayon knit, I originally made this sweater in the size I meas…
