    gilap added the project Sadie Top
    0b42d37e888ef6856443d174f393f7d0f2045a62_listing

    This is my Sadie with a cowl neck. I’m not sure if I did the collar right, but with some tweaking I managed to make it look half decent, especially since I received comments like "a diving bell wit…

    gilap added the project Kwik-sew Stretchy Corduroy Jeans
    5050fd7dc8d5ca82e515cb9b1d365504106ca29d_listing

    As it says in the title. These are my first pants ever and after getting over the first shock of trying my nearly completed pants on (the crotch length was way too long, although I measured first!)…

    gilap posted a message on olar's wall

    Hi olar – thank you for your nice comment on the wall! I really like what you did with the Anita!
    I realised, since I started sewing my own clothes, that I use much bolder colours and patterns, t…

    gilap commented on the project Lilo design No2

    Very nice – I love the colour and fabric. Maybe I should make a block pattern pair of trousers…

    gilap added the project Liberty Emily Blouse
    388d0a77cd5084419af584d1d333b8b2d0dc1a68_listing

    This is my first attempt at a blouse. I struggled with the continuous lap and setting the sleeves took ages, but all’s well, that ends well!

    gilap added the project Lydia goes Fourth
    437b01db2b36613151255b08556205d003fd8d63_listing

    This is the fourth Lydia I made, having used each time a different type of jersey and I got four different results.
    I also altered the pattern to make it less baggy under the arms.
    This time I…

    gilap added the project Esther Cardigan
    36900785c4d6d41dad1e7415b6ba5604efc77b98_listing

    Well, this is my Esther and I’m not sure I like it. I think it looks best on slimmer people, because it emphasizes all the “bad” areas. So if you’re worried about the size of you behind (like I am)…

    696de9f62e4d9c293ce573836a31620b9a85e68a_listing

    This is the basic Lydia Top I made in a very stretchy material.
    Unfortunately I cut the the material wrong and the grain now goes horizontal not vertical (I know what you’re thinking..and you’re …

    Looks lovely…how did you get it too fit? Mine turned out 2 sizes too large?

    8eaceba369237f56de5f97c43e32bb824e600a25_listing

    My first ever sewing project.
    I used stretch jersey and substituted the shirring elastic for 2mm elastic which I placed underneath the satin ribbon I stitched to the front and back.
