    lincatz commented on the forum topic Adding zippers to knits

    The main reason I recall is because knits are stretchy and a zipper isn’t always needed to get a dress on over the head and shoulders. Also knits can stretch and ripple when sewn to non-stretchy z…

    lincatz commented on the forum topic Wedding dress pattern

    This is a classic couture style gown and the price reflects the work and skill in making it. The price isn’t listed anywhere but a little bird in a bridal store tells em they start in the tens of t…

    lincatz added the project Blue Suede Purse
    Bluesuedepurse1_listing

    Back in the 80’s I had a blue purse that I adored. It was small but had plenty of compartments and pouches for all my stuff. I used the purse for a long time and needless to say it gradually fell a…

    lincatz added the project Floral Midi Dress
    Blueflowereddress_listing

    This dress is a convergence of the right fabric and the right pattern coming together at the same time. I seldom make patterns from the exact fabric as shown in the magazine but I liked the floral …

    Hi! I made the V-neck dress with the little pintucks along the V-neck and I liked it so much I also made it as the blouse. Here’s my piece of advice for making the tucks easy-peasy and without ripp…

    lincatz commented on the project Floral Floaty Dress

    I was thinking of making this but wasn’t sure how it would look without the elastics in the sleeve hems. Now I know! The dress looks a hundred times better without the elastic in the sleeves! I lov…

    I needed a tank top with a bit of panache to wear with some of my long boho-style maxi skirts. I wanted one with more style than a basic V or scoop neck. I also needed it in one day before we left …

    From BurdaStyle’s 05/2015 magazine. I picked up the magazine based on this blouse on the cover. I loved the breezy look to it and I have a weakness for anything with ruffles and flounces. I tested…

    I am in the middle of making this dress from the German language magazine. The pattern layout shows the pleated cummerbund/belt being cut on the bias grain. DO NOT DO THIS! The pleats are impossib…

    I love everything. The pinks and pale yellows, blues and lilacs look sharp, not washed out. The natural cottons are crisp and cool for summer. The paper bag shorts look comfy and elegant at the sa…

    When there’s a dimple, pucker or gather it’s usually because something is mis-marked and doesn’t line up. Here’s how it’s done in more detailed steps and includes something very few new pattern inc…
