    pambox added the project Cotton Casual Summer Pants
    100_3170_listing

    Although skirts and dresses are great for hot weather, sometimes you want to wear pants. I decided I needed to make myself some lightweight summer pants.
    The pattern is a 1960s vintage pattern, Si…

    100_3123_listing

    I love the fun of summer dresses. My brother and sister-in-law went to Indonesia earlier this year. They brought me home two pieces of batik fabric because they know how much I love sewing. I decid…

    pambox added the project Breezy Rayon Top
    100_3027_listing

    This summer is shaping up to be really hot in Sydney. It’s not even officially summer yet and we’ve had about four days over 35C and one over 40C (95F and 104F respectively), so it’s time for some …

    pambox added the project Cropped Nani Iro Top
    100_2983_listing

    After my really long and involved Denim DuBarry, I wanted to make something very short and sweet. This top took all of an hour. It’s self-drafted, has no darts at all, just two pieces which are ide…

    pambox added the project Denim DuBarry
    100_2932_listing

    This project was definitely a lot of effort! It’s a DuBarry coat dress in denim, and works equally well as a coat. The pattern is from the early 1940s, but the shortened hem and dark wash denim tak…

    pambox added the project Mum's Escher-esque Print Dress
    100_2856_listing

    I bought this fabric a few years back because I loved the print, but the colour never suited me. But luckily it works great for my mum. Because the print is so great I wanted to do a simple shift d…

    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…

    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…

    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…
