    shibz added the project Summer Sun Blouse
    Img_20150623_125436_listing

    Every new season I intend to make myself suitable pyjamas, but for some reason or another don’t get around to it and am left short. This year I decided I’d get ahead of myself and make summer PJs i…

    Thank you! Yes I do have a serger and it makes sewing knits (including underwear) easy and fun. The elastic was applied by sewing machine. You can certainly sew underwear with a sewing machine, jus…

    Img_20150228_153834_listing

    First pic: Watson bikini pattern. Although my measurements put me in a size L, by measuring against my favourite knickers I cut a size XS + 5mm at side seam. Perhaps this was the wrong choice as th…

    Underwear sewing has become a lot more enjoyable now that I have an overlocker and am using stretch needles in my machine rather than ballpoint. These were all experiments but far better than my pr…

    I think that looks really lovely, even if it is a departure from your normal style. Totally agree that the best kinds of clothes accommodate cake-eating sessions!
