    One day I was lucky enough to come across a box of vintage fabrics (1970s) in the FREE section of Craigslist. Going through that big box was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Here are a few of …

    Coat1_listing

    I used a heavy fleece, and modified Vogue pattern 1129 for this fleece coat. The Vogue version has the scarf attached down past the sleeve, and across the waist, leaving the neck open — I wanted a…

    Blkandgrshirt_listing

    There’s a reason why it looks like I mugged a couch, and drapes to make this shirt. I purchased this fabric on-line to make a pillow, but once I had it in my hands, I wanted to wear it. I used Simp…

    After admiring a one yard piece of fabric one of my sewing students brought to class, she gave it to me! There might have been enough fabric there for a simple gathered skirt, but I’m not getting a…

    deChez commented on the article Holiday Giveaway: Day 30 - Win a Prize Pack from Westcott!

    To keep your good cutting shears out of the hands of husbands, and kids, I advise my sewing students to buy an inexpesive combination pad lock for their scissors, and just lock the handles together…

    Very cute. Did you have to start with a larger size dress to accomodate the pleats? You did a beautiful job.

    deChez commented on the article Holiday Giveaway: Day 19 - Win $100 Gift Certificate from BritexFabrics.com!
