    mskirko posted a message on Mika Herrera's wall

    Hi Mike! I wish I could get together with you to help you with sewing, but the BurdaStyle Mountain View club has disintegrated. I moved to Oakland, so that’s one major issue. Another is that I had …

    mskirko added the project Faux Fur Vests
    Dsc05900_listing

    Saw a faux fur vest from J Crew I loved (for $600) and decided it would be easy (AND $590 cheaper) to design and sew one myself. I also made one for my baby as a sort of half scale project to see i…

    mskirko commented on the article Comment to Win Robert Kaufman Fabrics!

    I would make lovely baby items and a matching dress for me and my baby! I’d also make a lovely jacket and maybe some clever pillows for my bed! So beautiful!

    mskirko commented on the article Comment to Win "Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred!"

    I love knitting! I even have a blog called I’d Rather Be Knitting, which is pretty much true 50% of the time (when I wouldn’t rather be sewing, which is the other 50%)

    mskirko commented on the article Holiday Giveaway: Day 9 - Win ModCloth Accessories!

    Wow, I never even knew about this store. It’s so cool! I really like the idea of pairing these things with a dress and some great boots, but I don’t think that these two would go together. They bot…

    mskirko commented on the article Mary-Kate and Ashley's The Row

    I’m not surprised to see this ethereal, minimalist line come out of the Olsen twins, but I don’t really think it’s a very exciting line. Sure, it might be well-made, but the only thing interesting …

    Is there anything in Berkeley or Oakland that people know of, btw?

    mskirko commented on the forum topic BSC in San Francisco Bay Area

    Yes, we meet at someone’s house or at a local church and sew. In the future we will not be meeting as often as I am moving to Oakland. But, we will probably do online sew-alongs and other things an…

    mskirko added the project Fancy Desira
    Photo_listing

    Desira made into a truly wrap top and made of a nice thick knit fabric and instead of a facing (which by the way sucks!) I made another desira and simply sewed them together, making a lining/revers…

    mskirko added the project Truly Wrap Desira
    Dsc04868_listing

    I mistakenly thought the Desira was a true wrap top. You know, like the kind that goes through the hole and then wraps around and ties on the side? Looks like I was wrong. So I turned it into an ac…
