    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 commented on the forum topic Pictures in wrong order

    5 of the 7 photos for my Masculine Blouse are out of order: the first three, and the second and third last. Only the fourth and last photos are in the position I put them in.

    100_1403_listing

    This pattern is from the Japanese book She Has A Mannish Style. The patterns are all androgynous or influenced by men’s styles, and this blouse is based on a man’s dress shirt but with gathered s…

    pambox commented on the article Help Pick the Pattern for Our Next Sew Along

    My pick would be the seamed shift dress. Simple shape but with those detailed lines I think it would be really fun to make and everyone taking part would be able to put their own twist on it. I’m a…

    Love all of them, particularly the first one. Now I just need to have the sort of lifestyle that gives me reasons to wear such gowns!

    Not showing up for me either. This has been a repeated problem for Burdastyle for years. Frankly, it’s absolutely pathetic that they have not been able to address this issue. it’s frustrating to sp…

    The panel dress really is something that will either be brilliant with the right fabric or terrible with the wrong fabric, there’s no in between.

    My friend had a ‘heroes and villains’ themed 30th party. I’d had an extremely busy week and not had time to either buy or make a costume until a few hours before the party. At 4pm on a Saturday aft…

    Just a simple long-sleeved winter top in a bright fabric. I made this without a pattern, and was a bit stupid in how I laid the fabric out so it was originally far too short. But I had enough fabri…

    Another winter dress, this time one that can be layered. I found this lightweight but very warm wool weave at Rozelle Markets. It’s apparently an English wool, and very good quality. I don’t sew wi…
