    This is the hi-lo dress #116 from the the August 2014 issue of Burda magazine. I’m not one for the mullet dress or a backless look on me but this one whispered my name and said "Hey, go get that b…

    kathhhhhy commented on the project Tie Dyed Knit Wrap Dress

    Yeah, just get a big bucket (I used a huge, old pot meant for canning) and dye a chunk of it. Wear gloves and some nasty of clothes, it gets splashy sometime.

    I almost tossed this fabric in my donate/scrap box of stuff but pulled it out to give it new life. It was a plain, bright white, but after washing it, the material took on a hazier dull white… I…

    This is another Kwik Sew 3300 bra. I needed a solid black bra but find it impossible to make it plain ole’ black. I used a lace overlay and lined it with a polka dot material! More on my blog "Ka…

    kathhhhhy commented on the project Almost Harem Pants

    They are officially pajama pants now. These totally are not leaving the house ever. BUt I will be lounging in comfort for sure when I have them on while I sit and watch old movies at night.

    Do I like harem pants? Not usually my thing but I made this pair that remind me of the harem look. I am on the fence with them, I feel like they may be a little fuller then my figure needs. But …

    kathhhhhy commented on the pattern BurdaStyle Magazine 2014 Spring Digital Issue

    I have been a Burda fan for some years, and still am. I live in the US and have always wanted to have easy access to the English translated versions (i.e. in big box stores like Joanns, etc). The…

    I used Simplicity 1887 for these shorts. It’s a painfully easy pattern… it’s what I needed to help work on some fitting issues I have with pants/shorts in the bum area. They turned out so much b…

    kathhhhhy commented on the project Designer Inspired Trench

    Thank you!! And I looked up Equine Emp…. I think they are only in Canada :( I’m down in the US. Isn’t it odd that it’s such a chore to find plain and simple buckles?!

    P1080282_listing

    I used Vogue 8884 to help me sew up this trench coat. I was inspired by a particular Burberry coat. I drafted a few components to mimic some of the details. You can see loads of photos and all m…

    This is my first go at Papercut’s Ooh La Leggings. They come together so quickly and easily. They run quite long and I had to trim off about 4" (10 cm) on the leg. I love all of the interesting …
