    seratonin commented on the project My Sister's Wedding Dress

    I have a lot of respect for people who make wedding dresses for a living, but it’s too stressful for me. I can’t imagine even making another one, who knows though, maybe in a few years I’ll feel di…

    31100_400114246113_674671113_4793894_3073989_n_listing

    I made this dress in about a month for my sister’s beach wedding on May 31st. It is based off of the Burda magazine pattern 4-2005-111, but about 10 inches shorter and without the sleeves. This dre…

    seratonin commented on the project fancy schmancy silk jersey top

    Lovely! Lately I’ve been really bored with sleeves—-they all seem to be puffed. Your sleeves are so unique that it’s really cheered me up. Doesn’t hurt that the shirt looks very well-made, and the…

    seratonin commented on the project sewing session with my sister

    I love the fabrics you used and the dresses look so cool and comfortable! I tried to teach my sister to sew once…it didn’t go so well. She says that she likes the “sweet urban garden” in your pho…

    seratonin commented on the project Infinity Flesh

    Once upon a time I made an infinity dress. I had an awful time keeping the straps in place and that made wearing it awkward. But yours looks so fabulous! The color and the way you’ve wrapped it is …

    seratonin commented on the project My Shirt Anda!

    The back looks so elegant! I especially love the binding around the sleeves and neck—the perfect touch.

    Bdf88af0e86f7034bf08fefac0896a45a9ae0ac0_listing

    I’ve been watching the HBO series Rome recently, and the costumes are so gorgeous that it’s made me really want a Roman/Grecian style dress. This pattern sort of fits the bill with pleats at the sh…

    Df60e8c45bf5a06dbc27a644dd04f647f5f9b9f5_listing

    This is the blouse 101 lengthened into a dress. It’s very easy to make, and would fit a variety of sizes. Just add a belt!

    seratonin commented on the project Purple Flowered Alison

    Thanks everyone! I didn’t use a special foot, most of it was sewn on the serger, and for the rest of it I used a normal zigzag foot. I think it could use some length in the torso because the bust i…

    This swimsuit was fairly easy to make. The binding piece that extends around the back and turns into the halter does not seem to require elastic. I also bound the leg holes instead of using elastic…

    seratonin commented on the project black-grey Franzi vest

    It looks so very smart! You’ve inspired me to dig out my herringbone fabric and have a go at making the Franzi.

    seratonin commented on the project Dot Com Dress

    I love the collar and neck tie. The style reminds me of dresses I’ve seen in Japanese pattern drafting books from the 1960’s.

    I love the fabric you used! I wish I lived near an IKEA…I remember that I thought the Anda pattern was a bit boring when I first saw it, but I think it looks great the way you’ve made it up. The …

    30c0f9f992d09d251e3d6c5ac0e0cdadde373c06_listing

    Please excuse my ANTM posing. My dress was self-drafted using the “pinch, pin, & sew method.” (Not recommended—very tedious). This type of batik fabric is traditionally used in Indonesia as a saro…

    219c238b1e095db071ef8750e3455aee93d88c2b_listing

    I finally tried Sandra Betzina’s method for inserting a fly-front zipper, and I highly recommend it if you’ve ever been intimidated by zippers. I also added side pockets.

    There have been so many fabulous leg of mutton tops posted lately (many thanks to JJ!) Mine is a bit of a mix— Lydia body with leg-o-mutton sleeves. Edited to add full pic of skirt, which sadly I …

    I love the shape of this skirt. It was a quick and easy project—especially because I was able to use my serger to finish the edges and provide contrasting trim.
