    Thanks! My photos aren’t great, unfortunately. I plan to make this pattern up again, so will take better photos eventually. I managed to line up the skirt gores and bodice seams, but one is off. It…

    My first try at a By Hand London pattern, and filling the gap in my wardrobe for a summer jacket.

    Dsc_0232f1_listing

    My fourth Tiny Pocket Tank using the pattern from Grainline Studios.
    I am really happy with this one, the fabric is such a light, gauzy cotton; it’s so nice to wear.

    Dsc_0096_listing

    Two shirts made using Grainline Studio’s Archer pattern.
    A really, really flattering fit, easy-to-use pattern, I understand why it got so much attention on it’s initial release.

    The pink one is…

    Thanks!
    I’d highly recommend the pattern. It takes a bit of tweaking here and there, but is very versatile once you’ve got the size down.

    A little pyjama set made using the Jane pattern on Burdastyle and Grainline’s Tiny Pocket Tank. I’m a big fan of this latter pattern.

    laurenp commented on the project Simplicity 4670

    Thanks very much!
    It’s a button-on scarf on the pattern front. I didn’t make it no, as it needed to be attached to the neckline. I wanted a bit of freedom to choose my own scarf. An interesting id…
