    Hi, I’m also in Cape Town and was wondering when you’d be hosting a BSC?

    Hi Gedwoods, Thanks for including my khaki trousers on your Fabrics International site. I feel rather flattered! (And a little bit famous!)

    Bought myself a twin needle and some knits and made myself some fun t-shirts for the coming winter months.

    Lots of fun matching the stripes!

    Hi Taffeta, thanks for the comment on my dress. I used Rigilene boning. That’s just the plastic/nylon one and apparently the cheapest. But also the only one available here in the backwaters of Sout…

    Hi All, and thanks for the lovely comments. The boning I used was Rigilene boning. That’s just the polyester one and apparently the cheapest. But also the only one available here in the backwa…

    My sister was asked to be a bridesmaid for her friend’s wedding, and I was roped in to make the dress.

    skaapie added the project Red Recycled Surf Hoodie
    Fe579459fa57047219d496461a3ecade5449e693_listing

    I made the original hoodie about 10 years ago! As one of the first things I ever made, I was quite proud of it, but it was huge and rather dated.

    These Ellen pants were really easy to make. I used some khaki cotton my mum found in her stash, but couldn’t remember what she bought it for. So I got new trousers – Hooray!

    I shifted the po…
