    P4281460_listing

    I’ve been wanting to make a zip front dress for a while now, but first couldn’t find an open-ended metal zipper of the right length – there seemed to be nothing between 50cm and 90cm, the former’s …

    Brilliant fabric. I love the chest Zebra! Although I can see how the dress, fabulous as it is, could embarrass your daughter (even if she’s wrong to be embarrassed by such an awesome dress!).

    Thank you! This sewing thing’s addictive, isn’t it?
    I’d almost forgot I owned the purple tights until I was looking for something to wear under this skirt – lucky that the shade matches so well!

    P4211429_listing

    I found this piece of fabric at the fabric cave for the princely sum of $1.50. It had been $3, but they were having a half price sale, so a cheap piece of fabric became pretty much free .

    pambox commented on the project Un-locked Blouse

    It does move around a bit, so I did have to smooth it out every so often, but the fabric is soft enough that it doesn’t really crease.

    Oh, I forgot to add it! It’s Anne Adams 4565, from the 1940s

    Dscn2683_listing

    I bought this pattern at Sydney’s bi-annual Love Vintage fabric and fashion fair. It was a little more pricey than I planned to pay for a single pattern, but that neckline was too nice to pass up, …

    pambox added the project Embroidered 5-Gore Skirt
    Dscn2685_listing

    This skirt was originally a dress. It was one of the first things I made. Stupidly I didn’t use a pattern, and so the bodice didn’t fit all that well. I pulled it apart years ago, but had always pl…

    You know what? Multidirectional and mismatched stripes can look fantastic, and the flows and directions on your dress – especially with the thick monochrome stripes – are amazing.

    That neckline is exquisite, beautiful work.

    I almost bought that pattern last time I ordered from Decades of Style, but I already had five patterns and couldn’t afford the extra postage. Your version is excellent – the fabric suits the cut s…

    P3231412_listing

    This is a dress partly made from a mistake. It wasn’t meant to tie at the shoulders or back, but I forgot that the pattern I based the bodice on doesn’t include seam allowance, so I had to come up …

    P3151405_listing

    I bought this fabric last year when I was planning to make my Old Hollywood Blouse. I’d loved this colour, but the fabric is very thin, so in the end I used something else.
    Given how thin the fab…
