    100_2392_listing

    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…

    pambox added the project Antheia Maxi Dress
    100_2275_listing

    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…

    pambox commented on the project Slashed Sleeve Top

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

    pambox added the project Wardrobe Basic: Casual Flared Trousers
    100_2235_3__listing

    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 Slashed Sleeve Top
    100_2239_listing

    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…

    100_2217_listing

    This is my version of the scuba dress. I found this fabric at Spotlight a year or more back, and given my love of colour, I had to buy it. But I also had to find the right pattern for it so that it…

    Beautiful dress! I love the length and the choice of champagne instead of white or ivory for the colour, it really suits you. And congratulations on getting married.

    pambox commented on the project My first attempt at sewing

    Good first try! The back seems to fit really well, and while the front looks a little bit loose it still looks very nice. You’ve sewn it very well even if you chose the wrong size, so you’re on you…

    pambox added the project Dustbowl Dress
    100_1457_listing

    This is an adaptation of a Project Runway pattern, Simplicity 2995 (on the envelope cover it’s based on the bottom right version). The original version of the pattern only suggests stitching on rib…
