    pambox added the project Bettine the Elephant
    100_2711_listing

    My friend found this elephant fabric earlier this year and sent me a picture of it, asking if I’d like her to buy it for me. Of course I wanted it! I am a bit of a sucker for fabrics with animals p…

    pambox added the project Winter Garden Party
    100_2631_listing

    I bought this lightweight wool on a day trip to the Central Coast with friends a few years ago, but it had been sitting in my stash until I found the right pattern for it. A few months back I found…

    Such a fun dress – your personality really comes through in it.

    That fabric is fantastic! And those pockets are wonderfully hidden.

    100_2627_listing

    It’s winter in Australia, and I’m feeling cold. So I decided I needed to make myself a new fleecy jumper. I adapted the Lola Dress by Victory Patterns to come up with this one, which is warm and co…

    pambox commented on the forum topic Staff's activity has filled my wall

    I did what you said, Jennifer, and it worked – thanks. I’m still confused which of those boxes led to me getting staff comments in my activity, but I’m happy you found the way to get rid of it!

    Jennifer, none of the boxes in the notification settings has anything to do with our activity thread being spammed with staff comments. None of them have anything to do with the comments of other p…

    pambox added the project The Little Mostly-Black Dress
    100_2583_listing

    My wardrobe is generally very colourful and lacking in classic pieces. One ‘wardrobe essential’ I’ve lacked is anything that could be called a little black dress. I’ve had both this fabric and this…

    This is my version of the Morris Blazer from http://grainlinestudio.com/. I saw quite a few people posting their versions during Me Made May and decided to make my own, using a bonded lace ponte kn…

    I have it too. And because I haven’t been on here in a couple of weeks it’s almost impossible to wade through all of the activity notices of staff members’ comments to notices I’d actually care abo…

    pambox commented on the article Most Viewed BurdaStyle Member Projects of May 2015

    Can we bring back the old feature of projects of the month with slideshows of 20-30 different projects, and not just ones based on patterns sold on this site? It was a really great way of seeing th…

    pambox added the project Collarless PJs
    100_2502_listing

    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 Long-Sleeve Sari Pajamas
    100_2490_listing

    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…

    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 Spotted Stripe Shift
    100_2420_listing

    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…

    pambox added the project Sleeveless Sunshine
    100_2369_listing

    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…

    100_2375_listing

    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…
