    Hi. Sorry for the late reply. Will try and find the pattern but I have a feeling I traced the original pattern and don’t have it. Will check for you!

    hapakolea added the project Simplicity suit 3631 with charcoal wool
    6759048110c6f078e4971e25ec0fdbef3c1605fc_listing

    I made this suit according to directions but dropped the buttons and kept the suit loosely structured. Very comfortable, figure flattering and tons of compliments. The sleeves are rather kimonoesqu…

    hapakolea added the project Button/ribbon tie for plant
    525bb44b45c21535f7c4be0ed0400c1129482924_listing

    I made this just a few hours ago to give as a gift to a friend whom is having me over for dinner. It is a lace ribbon with a little bit of elastic sew on the back (to give it grip against the plant…

    hapakolea commented on the project grey and orange wallet

    This is supercute! I always try to make a wallet and then give up, which causes me to instead buy an expensive one to assuage my frustrations, anger and feelings of incompetence in the sewing circl…

    Thank you both so much! I really like this dress and it was hard to alter the pattern in so many ways but I’m delighted with the way it turned out and as both of you commented on the fit and style …

    7ff7c9208cf9f6b84e5376331a1802cff430cca7_listing

    I made this with one of those free patterns that comes with that women’s magazine, Prima, which is probably aimed at a demograph that I am NOT a part of…yet. Anyway, I made this in a bigger patte…

    hapakolea added the project Vintage pussy bow blouse
    68bf421cebdec76fa96a8a277b6b7dc48026531d_listing

    This is a vintage pattern blouse from the late 1970s or early 1980s. The material is NOT as sheer as it looks; I put it up in the window on a hanger so the details could be shown. When wearing it, …

    hapakolea commented on the project Zig-Zag Duvet Fabric two piece!

    Very clever restyling idea! I sometimes turn my ill-fitting skirts into sundresses for my daughters. Waste not, want not!

    hapakolea commented on the project Wrap dress from Prima pattern

    It is a Prima pattern I cut out about six years ago but I think they re-use it at least once a year or so. Too bad they seal their magazines now so one can’t peak before buying.

    I’m very proud of …

    Bdc85b6720c17443f051b297a28b9c9e57522ea9_listing

    This was made using the pattern found in Burda 10/07. I modified it by not putting in the welt pockets. I used big black snaps because I was feeling lazy. It is very comfortable and warm, which is …
