starryeyes11 added the project VintageModern Design Challenge - Kimono Magic Pattern (August) to Kimono-Inspired Wrap Dress
I started with the August Kimono Magic Pattern from the Vintage Notions book. However, I shortened the pattern considerably, took in the sides to add a bit of shape, left out the tucks, but instea…

Definitely the perfect pair of pants. I am quite tall and fairly curvy, so making my own are the only way to get a great fit!

This is very cute, the contrasting fabrics used show the patterns potential better than the original!

I don’t think I could sew without my iron, it is that integral to me. I wish it had a bigger water reservoir, so I wouldn’t have to refill it all of the time!

starryeyes11 commented on the article Holiday Giveaway: Win an Oliso Smart Iron!
My iron is pretty smart. However, my mom’s iron is definitely not smart, which is sad, as she irons a lot. If I were to win a smart iron, I’d give it to her.

My winter coat, made from the Nancy pattern! It was fun and challenging to sew, and I was so so pleased with the end result – I get compliments on it all of the time.
starryeyes11 commented on the project Jenny Variation B: Skirt With Bow
Yeah, I am not entirely sure how this really qualifies as a variation … Adding a tie bow at the waist is not exactly a big difference from the original pattern …

The shirtdress/shirtwaist dress. Throw one on with some cute ballet flats in the summer, or over some tights/leggings in the winter and you’re good to go!

Wow, $7.50 US for this??? Frankly, it’s not much different than this Burda pattern: http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Patterns/Main_Collection/8155_Skirt/1270778-1128998-1002130-1250102.html

Super cute! I have that same fabric, I am now debating if I should make a skirt like this for myself!
starryeyes11 commented on the project Lindsey
I cannot seem to find yardage information for this pattern, even on the instructions tab? This is something that would be nice to have in advance of downloading the pattern.
Also, I agree with th…
starryeyes11 commented on the project Karen - starryeyes11's version
Thanks! I do agree that the pics that Burdastyle posted for this one were a little nondescript, but as this was the type of garment I felt I really needed for fall/.winter I figured I’d give it a …

Karen cardigan made exactly from the pattern – no changes. Made from a black cotton/spandex jersey.

starryeyes11 added the project Sidonie - starryeyes11's version
I used the Sidonie pattern to make a basic, black a-line skirt – a definite wardrobe staple! However, I lengthened it to mid calf length – a bit more practical for fall/winter here.

Just a FYI – the downloads for this pattern are mislabelled – the home one is actually the copy shop version, and vice versa.
