    They look fun, but is there perhaps a design flaw in not making a dart on each outside seam of the bra cups? I noticed this excess fabric on the original model photo and now that Meg had to make ’b…

    Classic, beautiful design, but not at all a trench.
    This is a coachman’s coat, given the high, wide collar, but no gunflaps or epaulets, or sleeve flaps and the trim fitted waist silhouette.

    Very hip and cool. I don’t suppose we’ll ever see ‘Handwork" on our stands in Switzerland, but now I’ll keep a lookout.

    Inkstain1 commented on the project 'Ralph Lauren' White Jeans Skirt Burda 2-2014-109

    Thanks so much. I’m trying to connect better with other sewists to raise my mojo out of a general empty-nest depression. A little summer sewing has helped and so do all kind comments.

    At the end of the day, (actually at the beginning of the day, but let’s not get technical) I spend a lot of my working time alone at my desk writing novels. There is no wardrobe regime for this but…

    Dscn1747-1_listing

    I have stitched up three fresh summer shirts so far this year. One of them was the Kenzo wiggly peplum number and another was a ‘Margaret Howell’ camp or ‘boyfriend’ shirt, already reviewed here.

    Dscn1746-1_listing

    The designer Margaret Howell offered a ‘boyfriend’ shirt look for this summer.

    Goodness knows why I tackled such a look when it doesn’t even flatter a young woman walking the runway. It feature…

    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

    I am mystified that I can get an entire magazine of up to 50 models and multiple collections for only 9 Swiss frances on the Continent while in the US, customers are being asked to cough up $65 for…

    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 …

    All my skirts have turned out much better, sadly late in life, because I decided what was the right length for me from my waist and stuck to using that while tracing the pattern, e.g. I know I want…

    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.
