    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.

    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…

    pambox commented on the article Tough Love: 10 Punky New Sewing Patterns

    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.

    The dress …

    pambox added the project Goldilocks Grape Shorts
    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.

    Yenny, your creations wouldn’t look out of place on a red carpet – just wonderful.

    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…

    Pc041851_listing

    My old summer pyjamas died last year, so I really needed new ones. So I decided rather than buy some, I’d make myself a nightie. The pattern is a Butterick from the 1950s, but doesn’t have a patter…

    Pink bar for me. Restarted posting the new project (copied and pasted my three paragraphs I’d written about my project) and it’s done it again.
