    This story makes me think of my friend’s mum who used to buy discount tinned items that had no labels, hehe. Surprise random pattern, sounds like a challenge :-)

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the forum topic Sewing with a serger.

    As Kate said, practice! :)

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the project Flattering Grey Stretch Dress

    That is definitely the kind of dress you can easily have 20 of, go for it, mix up the colours and prints, summer and winter looks, you’ll have the most flattering and comfy wardrobe around! :)

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the forum topic Home Page - too busy!

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the forum topic So what, do we not get to post patterns anymore?
