    pambox commented on the project Blue Rose Bikini

    The fabric was surprisingly easy to sew. It was a good quality lycra which helps, but my machine is pretty sturdy and handles most fabrics well. I used a stretch fabrics needle, had the pressure le…

    100_1010_listing

    I hate shopping for swimsuits, because I never like anything in the shops. I like the more retro styles more than most of what’s on sale. Seeing as I’ve sewn lots of different fabrics and garments,…

    100_0991_listing

    The day I bought this fabric I’d only gone to Spotlight to get some satin to line my Boulanger dress, but the discounted fabrics table is right next to the cutting counters, and I spied an elegant …

    Projects are again not uploading/not appearing when they are uploaded. It appears to have been a number of days since anything new appeared in the projects section of the website.

    pambox commented on the project Parisian by Pattern Anthology

    Sewing with stretch is interesting – it seems so much scarier at first, but as long as you don’t have a really crappy piece of fabric I think it tends to be pretty easy to use.

    Beautiful – I can see this being worn by the mysterious and slightly dangerous anti-heroine of some early 20s German expressionist film.

    Beautiful – a dropped waist is always tricky to pull off but you’ve done it perfectly.

    Really beautiful fabric, it perfectly suits the top

    pambox commented on the project Sewist Sundress

    It wasn’t too hard – I used a pair of underwires to get the right shape at the bottom of the cup, then added a bit of a curve to the top of that piece. The top piece is basically a narrow rectangle…

    Some of these are really great. Not sure I’d do the pants in black and white stripe though – veers a little too much to clowny costume for me. But their cut is amazing.

    This is gorgeous, and I love that it’s not too fussy – it can be dressed up or down and will still look great.

    pambox commented on the project Sewist Sundress

    I bought the fabric at a shop called Cleg’s in Melbourne, but the print is ‘Measure Twice’ by Benartex Fabrics. There’s also one with multicoloured tapes on a white background, and white tapes on a…

    This isn’t just the world’s funkiest check fabric – it’s the world’s funkiest check fabric with stripes that are actually tape measures with centimetres and inches marked along them.

    100_0784_listing

    I haven’t owned any shorts for years because all pairs in shops are terrible – they’re too long, or too loose, or they let half your bottom hang out, and they always looked awful when I tried them …

    It’s great on you – the black and white makes it very classic and both fun and elegant at the same time.

    100_0781_listing

    I had the idea for this top a few years ago, and have had the elements of it too, but only just got around to making it. The main part of the top used to be a dress, while the sleeves are a lace do…

    I recently submitted my PhD thesis (HURRAH!!!!) so I rewarded myself with a trip to Tessuti Fabrics in Sydney’s Surry Hills as one of my rewards. And this time I let myself look at more expensive f…
