    schorst1 added the project dress 109 variation for summer
    20140814_104248_listing

    This sleeveless, rayon version is perfect for hot weather. I based this off of the sweetheart tulip skirt dress but made a button placket front closure instead of a zipper back. It looks better wit…

    Sweetheart dress with empire waist, finished with exposed zipper. To minimize bulk in the waist I changed the waist gathers to pleats and spread them out for better pocket placement I had to take a…

    20140814_105619_listing

    Adorable! Perfect fit and color for you! Have you tried using a standing steamer instead of ironing? I find it much faster for gathered and pleated garments

    The cushions are definitely the easy part! I didnt run into many big problems, but i learned a lot about the construction/layers i didnt realize went into it. If you havent already stripped it yet,…

    Imag0203_listing

    Adapted from Butterick pattern 5181, I used a heavy brocade to give these dresses body and a fall feel. Note: the pattern ran about two sizes large and we took in a lot from the back seam. I also a…

    This was the second chair I took from basement selvage to new life. The wood needed a lot of work to refinish and had to be dark to cover. The fabric is an outdoor, water/stain resistant printed ca…
