    Simply exquisite! A dress fit for any 1930s ball.

    pambox added the project Pleated Fan Dress
    P6221533_listing

    As I wrote on my other new project (Falling Ivy Leaves Coat), I had two weddings to attend this weekend, so an excuse to sew very pretty things. This dress has actually been an idea in my head for …

    pambox added the project Falling Ivy Leaves Coat
    P6221528_listing

    There were two weddings on this weekend, so of course I had to do some sewing! Given that June is winter down here, I thought I should have a coat over the top of my dress (Pleated Fan Dress). The …

    pambox commented on the forum topic How are Featured Projects, Projects of the Month Chosen

    I’ve been wondering that. And why there hasn’t been a new gallery in months – the last ‘best projects of the month’ was back in March. The galleries and featured items on the front page (especially…

    P6071488_listing

    I desperately needed new winter pyjamas because the weather’s cooling down here and one of the sleeves of my old pyjamas had virtually fallen off. I bought this pandas and aqua check flannelette at…

    Thanks! Designer move sounds much better than error!

    pambox added the project The Error Top
    P5251484_listing

    This is called the Error Top because I completely misjudged the sleeves. I used a top I already had to draft the pieces of this top, but I made the sleeve pieces way too narrow. To fix it, I cut ou…

    pambox commented on the project MADE: CANDY QUEENS

    These are brilliant as always. I love the details, all the way down to the sprinkles in the hair (although that probably wouldn’t have been fun to wash out afterward!). And congratulations on raisi…

    P4281460_listing

    I’ve been wanting to make a zip front dress for a while now, but first couldn’t find an open-ended metal zipper of the right length – there seemed to be nothing between 50cm and 90cm, the former’s …

    Brilliant fabric. I love the chest Zebra! Although I can see how the dress, fabulous as it is, could embarrass your daughter (even if she’s wrong to be embarrassed by such an awesome dress!).

    pambox commented on the project Lillypad Skirt

    Thank you! This sewing thing’s addictive, isn’t it?
    I’d almost forgot I owned the purple tights until I was looking for something to wear under this skirt – lucky that the shade matches so well!

    P4211429_listing

    I found this piece of fabric at the fabric cave for the princely sum of $1.50. It had been $3, but they were having a half price sale, so a cheap piece of fabric became pretty much free .

    pambox commented on the project Un-locked Blouse

    It does move around a bit, so I did have to smooth it out every so often, but the fabric is soft enough that it doesn’t really crease.

    I bought this pattern at Sydney’s bi-annual Love Vintage fabric and fashion fair. It was a little more pricey than I planned to pay for a single pattern, but that neckline was too nice to pass up, …

    pambox added the project Embroidered 5-Gore Skirt
    Dscn2685_listing

    This skirt was originally a dress. It was one of the first things I made. Stupidly I didn’t use a pattern, and so the bodice didn’t fit all that well. I pulled it apart years ago, but had always pl…

    You know what? Multidirectional and mismatched stripes can look fantastic, and the flows and directions on your dress – especially with the thick monochrome stripes – are amazing.
