sewenggirl88 added the project Tiramisu
This dress is seriously awesome. The pattern sizing is extremely customizable, and I bet anyone could find a size combination that would fit you. And the splice front doesn’t gape at all!

I like making doll clothes, also a great way to experiment with styles that I probably wouldn’t wear myself!

It’s so hard to find 100% wool were I live, so I’ve only had experience with blends, but even the blends are warm and great coats and winter skirts!

Haha I wish it was 32 celsius!
sewenggirl88 added the project 32 Degree Shorts
I don’t tend to sew for the correct season and this is probably the most classic example: Shorts when there is 5 inches of snow on the ground and the temperature is at freezing. I’m not really into…

It seems like I never have enough long sleeved shirts and sweaters once winter comes along. And for some reason I’m drawn to gray alot in the winter, so now I feel like not only do I have tons of g…

sewenggirl88 added the project A Woven Tee
Sewing is my procrastination. So much more interesting than reading research papers and writing a research proposal. I bought this fabric when an online fabric store was having a going out of busin…

sewenggirl88 added the project Old School Remix Blouse
Not much to say about this blouse. The cover art is horrible, but I love the pattern, a classic example of needing to only look at the technical drawings. This is one of the projects I included in …

I understand that it makes it easier to format if you guys narrow the entries down to 50 fifty before voting begins, but it doesn’t seem very nice or fair. If it’s a real contest, you should allow …

super cute, it could almost be scaled up for a women’s top because the colors are not too childish

sewenggirl88 added the project The Never Ending Coat
This coat has been a long time coming. And I’m glad it’s done, but I don’t know if sewing a thick wool coat was the best idea in this heat. It makes it worse that my sewing room is the hottest room…

sewenggirl88 added the project Straight From The Picnic Blouse
Now that I’ve finished this blouse, the style looks straight out of the 1940s to me. I’ve had this pattern for a while just waiting to find the right fabric. I loved the red version on the cover so…

I think it’s more than just kaitui-kiwi’s activity box that’s broken, mine hasn’t work in quite a while so I get there are a lot more people’s that don’t work as well. Also it would be really cool …

sewenggirl88 added the project Butterfly Swarm Top
I have at least 6 or 7 versions of this pattern, M2222, in my wardrobe right now, the oldest being the first one made by my mom that I loved so much I stole from my sister (the original owner) and …

sewenggirl88 added the project Boring Black Tee
Well from that title I’m sure you can figure how I feel about this one. It took me forever only because I just wasn’t that excited about it, and then to top it off I’m pretty sure I sewed the front…
