    emmastaf commented on the forum topic Wool-viscose care

    I didn’t find it hard to sew at all. In fact, its flexibility made it very forgiving. I did break needles when sewing through several layers; I probably should have been using a different needle.

    Aw, I grew up in Delaware, Ohio and lived in Columbus for five years! I kind of wish I were back there, now!

    emmastaf commented on the project brown knitted dress

    I noticed this dress right away! I really love the bodice. I’m not very good (or patient) at knitting, but maybe I could find a way. By the way, it took me a while to find the instructions on the w…

    I made a simple trapeze top out of this ridiculous motorcycle-print fabric I found on sale in the home decor section. The fabric smells kind of strange, so I haven’t actually worn it out yet. For t…

    emmastaf commented on the project white anda dress

    I don’t remember exactly what I did to the pattern. I cut the top from the skirt at (I think) the waistline. I then cut the top into two halves each (front and back) and redrew them into a crossove…
