    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Love and hate-Vogue V1531

    Exactly! I had seen this pattern a few times and it really didn’t jump out (as they only really ever show the first picture. But then somehow I was doing a full review (there was a sale on Vogue pa…

    Thank you! and you’re right – the front seam does nothing for the dress (particularly when I didn’t press it well for the pictures!). I know others have said that they will get rid of that seam an…

    Thanks Ellen. It was a labour of love but I do really love the final product!

    Hiya Mary. I am really rubbish at fabric requirements as I fudge it all the time (this is a case in point as the side panels on the bodice were 90 degrees to grain I think! I kind of never pay att…

    Thank you!! I managed to get to wear it the first night I finished it for my daughter’s ballet show and all my friends loved it!! And yes – the henna is a right pain to do but I love the colour it …

    Thank you! All my friends mentioned the good hair colour match too though I need to henna it again and you never really know what it will turn out like each time :D The fabric is the reverse side…

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Love and hate-Vogue V1531

    Oh man – shame. But I think the pattern is worth it though. I really want to make this in a jumpsuit too. I think it will behave itself a lot more when I use a more compliant fabric even if it m…

    What a great idea! I must admit I did wonder what I was going to do but then these inserts weren’t bad. But that’s a fab idea to just add elastic yourself instead. Genius!

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Love and hate-Vogue V1531

    Just googled and the terms you’d need are ‘backless bra adapter’ and ‘backless bra inserts’. I didn’t get the silicone ones – just the fabric ones that join at the front! Like I say – rubbish suppo…

    Oh – I am so pleased you’re getting it. And yes, I was lucky as I had these remnant strapless and backless bra cup things that are generally a bit useless in that they don’t really give you any su…

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Vogue 9243!! Its all about the sleeves x

    You know – I am seeing a lot of comments about Vogue patterns these days. I had put it down in the past to me tinkering with them and doing my own thing but actually I think they often seem to be t…

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Ruffled jacket

    Ooh – can’t wait to see your other one then! Upholstery fabric has been a total revelation to me. Someone recommended it for corsets and since then I’ve just seen all the possibilities!

    Wow!! Love everything about this outfit. Great style and can hardly believe you even made your own shoes!! That’s awesome!

    I love this jacket Chula. I have some upholstery velvet too but I don’t think it would drape as well as yours does for the flounce. The colour really suits you too!

    This was a HUGE challenge. I hated working with sheer fabric, and even though I should have only just fitted into the size 12 that I cut, it ended up being MASSIVE on me (and fitting, with this fa…

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Ruffle wiggle skirt

    Thanks Nadia!! :) I absolutely loved this pattern as soon as I saw it. I am sure I’ll make the full dress one day too but I knew a skirt would look great with the little bolero. I was really pl…

    Lindsay Hodgson commented on the project Button Blouse :)

    It’s fab Ellen. The buttons are gorgeous. I;ve just finished a dress in sheer fabric and it nearly killed me! Not sure I will do another in a hurry but your results in sheers are always fab!

    What a fantastic idea for the hair!! I made a nie doll once but was never all that happy with the wool hair wig thing I created for it. This is a fab idea.

    It’s beautiful. The lace back is stunning. (And by the way – I am totally going to rob your idea of mixing the 2 vogue patterns for a ball gown. I didn’t realise that the top bodice you’d used wa…
