    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Little Skirt

    Straightforward? Sure. Sometimes, it’s best to let a bold, whimsical print speak for itself.

    Unless it actually starts, you know, speaking … literally. Then, the best thing to do is call your …

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Bring Back the (Pattern) Draft Dress

    After a year of sewing, I finally decided it was time to take the plunge and design and draft a pattern on my own. It’s far from perfect, but it didn’t turn out half bad for a first effort.

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Just Call Me Ms. Pac Man

    I’ve worn this once. So far, everyone who’s seen this has gone through an almost identical cycle: 1) Compliment. 2) Three second pause. 3) Eyes widen/mouth gapes. 4) “WAIT, IS THAT PAC MAN?”

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Accidental Booty Suit

    I made a suit…in black, no less, because sometimes I like to dress up and pretend I’m an adult. Honestly, I made this hoping it’d turn out well enough to wear at some hypothetical job interview. My…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Pucci-Esque Printed Mod: McCall's 6699 like it's 1969

    My boyfriend especially likes this dress because he’s a fan of anything that reminds him of a Pucci print, and I’m a fan of not questioning how a straight man knows anything about Pucci.

    From "R…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Silk Velvet: Laziest Luxury Dress Ever

    Pair a luxe fabric with a super casual pattern (Burda 7376), and you’ve got a recipe for basically the most versatile dress ever. I initially made this floor length for a formal event but cut it sh…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Duck and Cover Dress

    Based on Butterick 5559, I’m calling this my Duck and Cover Dress for a couple reasons. One, it looks like a bomb going off with all those fancy pleats. Two, based on how hot this dress looks on ev…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Silk Jersey Bubblegum Dress

    Silk jersey in a dizzying but delicious polka dot pattern and a simply-cut dress with a straight skirt, pockets, elastic waist and kimono sleeves. McCall’s 6112. Simple to make. Super soft to wear….

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Bohemian Roadkill Coat

    Based on Butterick 5685, a jacket/coat pattern, this started out as an intended homage to Penny Lane in Almost famous. I was going for a boho-hippie-chic vibe. I think it looks more bad-upholstery-…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Pretty Until the Seizure Starts

    What’s good? The pattern: Straightforward. Pretty. What’s not so good? The fabric, which reminds me of that line from Steel Magnolias about throwing up Pepto Bismol.

    Because I’m totally shameles…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Classiest Toga Party Dress Ever

    I love this pattern because honestly — does it not look like a fancy version of a toga party outfit … the kind you’d fashion out of a spare sheet and some tape for a college keg party, except, y…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Because Every Girl Needs a Red Dress

    My try at sewing Butterick 5780, a close-fitting, Kate Middleton-inspired something-or-other knockoff featuring sleeve options, a skirt with front pleats, a back zipper, and a bodice with a crazy l…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Accidentally 70s: Simplicity 1801

    A rather darling pattern turned into a creation best suited for a Halloween costume. I didn’t mean to look like I crawled out of an episode of the Partridge Family with this frock, but sometimes, t…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Devil in the Daytime Knit Blue Dress

    This was my foray into sewing a relatively complex pattern for a knit fabric. I think it turned out pretty swell, even though the elastic waist gave me a hell of a time because I’m an idiot and onl…

    Rebecca Delaney added the project called Easy Being Green(ish): McCall's 6433

    This was my second crack at this pattern. The first was a purple monstrosity that only remains in my closet because I’m afraid to look at it again. Things went much more smoothly this time around. …
