    ememtee commented on the project Jonathan & Lily's matching outfits

    This was just meant to be a jokey throwaway comment, but since you ask, no I don’t like them. But you obviously do, and that is your choice, so I wouldn’t presume to comment further.

    ememtee commented on the article Dress Like A Duchess | 16 Wonderful Patterns

    As a TruBrit, I love that we have the Royal Family, but I really can’t understand all the interest in the Duchess of Cambridge. She’s OK, but if you want to see a real beauty, take a look at Zara …

    ememtee added the project Green Pendrell
    023_listing

    This is Sewaholic’s Pendrell blouse, which I made for my daughter. The fabric was a length of silk which was brought from Hong Kong for me about twenty years ago. I never liked it (and still don’…

    ememtee added the project Brown Sorbetto
    022brown_sorbetto_listing

    This is the second Sorbetto for my daughter. This time, instead of using binding, I made an all-in-one facing, which was much quicker.

    ememtee added the project Blue Sorbetto
    021_listing

    My daughter needed some cool tops, and the free Sorbetto pattern was ideal. She is very tall, so I had to make it three inches longer, and also lower the armhole by about three-quarters of an inch…

    008hannah_s_dress_listing

    I made this dress for my granddaughter’s 8th birthday, from a 1999 Prima magazine pattern. I’m more than a bit bored with pink, but it’s her favourite colour, so what could I do? She loved it, an…

    Obviously Chester has a better class of charity shop than Heswall darling! Seriously, love the finished skirt, and the belt.

    Hi Sew4my3, thanks for staying on top of the creations problem. I still haven’t heard anything from the tech people, as of Monday afternoon, 11th May, GMT. Contrary to my original rant, I’m reall…

    Hi Sewella. Thanks a lot for your kind comment about Hannah’s pink jacket. I’m still waiting for my son to send a photo of her wearing it, but have been told that she loves it!

    My daughter asked me to make this skirt, but it wasn’t a pattern I would have chosen, and I found it very fiddly to make.

    I wonder who this pattern is actually aimed at? Men’s tailoring needs to be so sharp and precise that I can’t imagine many hobby sewers wanting to tackle it. It would be interesting to hear what …

    Thanks for your nice comment on Hannah’s school dress. I love making things for her, but rarely get to see her wearing them, as she lives in London.

    This dress looks really smart on you, particularly with the red belt. I had seen the pattern, but the picture wasn’t very clear, and I didn’t realise it had the pleated neckline detail, which seem…

    This is so 50’s. Have you thought of adding a net petticoat to look even more authentic?! Seriously, I had one just like this in orange, and I wore it to death, but your pink looks so much more d…

    This just needs a white shirt underneath, and you have a St. Trinian’s gymslip. Sorry to be so negative, but I thought this even when I saw the ‘thin’ version. Alden does make a lovely model though!

    I was wrong Melissa – this is a perfect length, and the dress looks lovely on you. Happy birthday, and enjoy your party on Saturday.

    I wouldn’t wear either of these. The dress reminds me more of what used to be called a coat-dress rather than a wrap dress. Why can’t we just have a simple wrap dress/top designed to fit all size…

    I like this coat, but think it is having a bit of an identity crisis. The tartan fabric is far too girly, and the style is too fitted. Most men, certainly in the UK, only wear fabric overcoats fo…
