    pambox added the project The Circle of Top
    100_2792_listing

    This is my version of the Circle Top from Papercut Patterns. I love cosy cardigans but I don’t knit, so I have thought about sewing some. This pattern, which is just a big circle with sleeves, appe…

    pambox commented on the article Meg's Magazine Mash Up: Vote on My Next Project!

    I vote the hooded cowl dress because I want to make it myself sometime and I’d love to see what sort of variations you come up with.

    pambox added the project Hand-Sewn Guipure Top
    100_2746_listing

    I’m not sure about anyone else, but I think lace is gorgeous but it kinda terrifies me. But earlier this year I found this piece of guipure lace in the remnant box of a local fabric store for $15 w…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…
