    pambox added the project called Collarless PJs

    This is the last of my four new winter sleepwear makes. Again, I used Closet Case Files’ Carolyn Pajamas patter, but this time I decided not to add the collar. Partly because I don’t tend to do wel…

    pambox added the project called Long-Sleeve Sari Pajamas

    I made short sleeve sari pajamas a few months back. Given I used a sari there was still a huge amount of fabric left over, so I made this long sleeve version. Once again I’ve used the Carolyn Pajam…

    pambox added the project called Polar Bear Dressing Gown

    It’s heading in to winter in Australia so I needed to hurry up and get my winter sleepwear done. First up, this cosy polar fleece dressing gown. It’s just a big loose kimono style with large pocket…

    pambox added the project called Spotted Stripe Shift

    I made this dress as a change of sewing scene. It’s a very simple shift, with no darts, no zip or closure, and no pattern! It was a very easy make, with fabric from Tessuti in Sydney. I think the f…

    Those are great!

    pambox added the project called Sleeveless Sunshine

    This is the follow-up to my other top, sleeved sunshine. The piece of jersey I bought was bigger than I needed for a long sleeved top, so I decided to make a simple shell t-shirt as well. I think t…

    pambox added the project called Sleeved Sunshine

    I decided I needed new long sleeve t-shirts because the weather’s cooling down here and many of the long sleeve tops I own have seen better days. I found this yellow jersey for $1.80(!) at an op sh…

    Thanks for all the lovely comments!

    pambox added the project called Floranimal Skirt

    I bought this fabric more than a year ago, but only just got around to making this skirt. I’d had it pictured in my head from when I bought the fabric, but always had other things to make first. Bu…

    I found this vintage fabric, with it’s chessboard-like print, at a vintage fair a few years ago. The dress is Simplicity Project Runway 2444, which is a great and versatile pattern to use. The weig…

    pambox added the project called Antheia Maxi Dress

    I’ve loved this Tessuti fabric for about three years but hadn’t bought it because I didn’t know what to do with it. But then it was on sale, so I decided to buy it and just play around with the fab…

    While the Northern Hemisphere shivers through winter, it’s been summer down here. Today (28 February) is the last official day of summer in Australia. So I went to the beach, and made this romper t…

    Thanks! I love the slashes too, but they take so much effort I probably won’t do them again any t…

    pambox added the project called Wardrobe Basic: Casual Flared Trousers

    Every so often I decide I need to make some more sensible clothes. I also do like a pair of nicely fitting but casual trousers, and the last pair I owned died a while ago. I actually bought both th…

    pambox added the project called Slashed Sleeve Top

    I decided I wanted to make a loose-ish t-shirt, but not something completely plain. I bought this fabric at Tessuti, because the colours are simple but not dull. I’ve seen slashed backs and sleeves…
