    gabcorb added the project called Breezy coral linen dress
    Img_3737_listing

    Summer dress made using McCalls 6553. This dress is absolutely perfect for hot weather. I mostly leave the belt off, but then the belt holes act as ventilation points :)

    Img_2114_listing

    Draping is harder than it looks!

    I made this top using a gorgeous soft viscose/elastane fabric, with Burda magazine pattern 2/2009-108 as my underlying t-shirt. The draped piece across the fro…

    Dsc01073_listing

    I love this top so much! I made it with some unidentified striped fabric (upholstery fabric perhaps?) plus some deep red dupion silk, both of which had been maturing in my stash for far too long be…

    gabcorb added the project called Cityscape skirt
    Img_2043_listing

    Lined silk skirt made from Vogue 1174 – which is a dress pattern but fitted at the waist and easily sewn up as just a skirt. The print on this fabric is amazing, but I didn’t get very good photos o…

    gabcorb added the project called White t-shirt - Koos style
    Img_1292_listing

    Top made using Vogue 2971, a Koos Couture by Koos van den Akker pattern. I had to modify the pattern to fit me because it seemed more suited to someone with strong shoulders and a bust, as opposed …

    Img_0191_listing

    I made this little blouse as a test for a 1980s Vogue dress pattern that I’d fallen for and purchased in a late night blur – I’m really happy with the result and so glad I made the effort to match …
