    Dscn1746-1_listing

    I love mine so much, you’ve inspired me to try again with this pattern and this time, to use more than scraps. But I see you’ve skipped the dreaded tab problem that gave me such a headache!

    Inkstain1 commented on the pattern Island Inspired: 11 New Patterns

    My experience with a loose top the is deep-V-necked at both front and back is that it falls off. That jade tank top paired with the floral skirt is very insecure looking. Would be interested to see…

    Inkstain1 commented on the article Trend Spotting: Apron/Wrap Pants

    On the subject of the pattern, not the pop-ups, I fear these are a little too trendy a trend for someone my age. I always feel a little sorry for fashionistia dragging around their droopy-crotched …

    Inkstain1 commented on the article Beginner Tips For Sewing A Skirt

    Inkstain1 added the project Burda Easy F/W 2014 Zebra mini-skirt
    Dscn1666_listing

    This skirt design has a lot of potential which went begging because my faux fur model doesn’t show off the interesting piecing. But therein lies the risk. Only by laying all the pattern pieces to i…

    I like the collection but since I bought the mag off the shelves, I’ve been pretty disgusted that Burda is getting so lazy as to use the same fabric in two different designs. You must have a whole …

    Very good jackets. Will be making both of those for spring.

    he baggier items need to be rethought. Too much fabric, too busy prints.
