    freyastark added the project called Emily #8153
    P8270146_listing

    freyastark added the project called Paisley harem pants
    P1110417_listing

    I used McCalls 5889 (from 2009; now discontinued) to make these pants. Although I wanted to make the
    version with elasticized cuffs, the pants turned out slightly too short and I did not have eno…

    A nice, straightforward and very simple pattern for a flared maxi skirt with a side zipper and an optional floaty overlay. I have it once only, in a black and white Hawaiian cotton, without the ove…

    P1070648b_listing

    An out-of-print classic published in the early 2000s, and a great shirt pattern. The fancy details of the illustrations obscure the possibility of a nice, straightforward classic shirt. This patter…
