    janelee1984 commented on the project Another Game of Thrones Dress

    Sadly abakhans didn’t have anything very lannistery that was cheap enough. I guess as it’s floral that makes me a Tyrell! M6940 really is a great dupe though for two of Cersei’s dresses.

    Wooboo_wedding_2_listing

    This is my bridesmaid dress for Sophie’s wedding. The only requirement was that it should be green. I made the same Burda pattern that I’ve now sewn 4 times. It’s just so simple that I think you c…

    Game_of_thrones_dress_1_listing

    This is the dress that I made for my 30th birthday party, which was Game of Thrones themed. As usual I left it completely to the last minute (despite having the fabric for a whole month), so it di…

    Apologies if I double posted this, something weird happened when I tried to post this comment before. It all depends on where you’re staying because London, whilst having an awesome transport syst…

    That’s really cool. Did you construct a basic pencil skirt pattern and then just spread it to add in the pleats? I definitely want to make me one of these!

    Thanks so much, that’s really kind. I normally don’t go for tent like things, but this is super comfy. Definitely investing in some turtle neck sweaters and mini skirts to go with it!

    Hi guys. Thanks for your help. It was indeed wool. I steamed it into submission. Nothing bad happened, if anything it made it springier and nicer. Below is the finished item

    P1010506_listing

    I have had this fabric in my stash for a whole year. The idea was to make a cape, but it turns out that I look terrible in all capes, so that plan was abandoned. According to the shop it was ’Ita…

    janelee1984 commented on the forum topic Poor fit in the back of garments

    I did try that around the zip (I always move zips to the centre back any way) but it looked bunchy. Perhaps I was being a bit too slash and sew, I have a half finished dress that I can try that on…

    Maybe extra darts are the answer. I’ll have a play with one of my basic bodice bodice patterns. Couldn’t find “Fitting Finesse” on Amazon.co.uk, but I did find Nancie’s "Pattern Fitting with Confi…

    janelee1984 commented on the project Easy peasy orange dress

    I saw yours ages ago and it was one of the reasons I wanted to try the pattern (don’t think it looks that nice in the mag!). Definitely going to try lining it and maybe using a wintry fabric like …
