those were an attempt to create hipsterish sweat pants for actors and comedian who are fed up with jogging pants. Well… It worked. Without a pattern. I will try to make a tutorial, they are so ea…
Based on Yoshi Yamamoto jacket
Strangely enough, that “modern jacket” ended up looking very “art dco”….
Very warm and comfy slightly elastic wool pants for my son. Once again I couldn’t fill in the form properly so…
Burda young jeans 7138
simple dress to understand how material falls. Simple cotton, simple Burda pattern… It took me less then an hour…
The pattern number couldn’t be filled in on that form, maybe i…
I wish to try the idea of the “one hour dress” but was afraid to buy the pattern from the internet. I figured it out by myself, it’s not yet finished (a lot of beadind to sew by hand still), but I …
Thank you ! The only thing that was missing from the original pattern were pictures of people who…
Thank you Mary, you are so supportive !
Based on the pattern from this address: http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2009/05/07/cloche-hat/
yet unadorned, this basic pattern for cloche hats is fairly easy to figure out and to adjust to your …
Thank you so much for being so supportive Mary ! Happy New year !
Japanese pattern, from Tuniques Robes etc. My first attempt of adapting a pattern so it would fit right on an occidental too-tall lady. It worked.
Simple cotton dress based on a Burda pattern, helped me a lot to learn how to adjust to right size and to insert a side zipper.
I found the idea on the Internet. I can seam to retrace it. But let’s say a lined rectangle drafted to your size + buttons… Et voil
Not at all my personal style. I will give it to someone. But a great way to learn how to modify unused patterns to create something of your own and learning techniques along the way.
My take on a lumberjack shirt. I know, on this picture, it looks a bit like a nightgown. It doesn’t when you’re near. With this tunique, I learned that working with scottish print actually HELPS yo…
A simple project I made on gave to my friend Karine. From the same japanese pattern as the WWW: Simple Modern sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha. I just eliminated the gathers for less bulk. Japanese …
this is my Wicked Witch of West dress.
Very warm. Made of spider-thin japanese wool, inspired by a japanese pattern.
I didn’t know what to do with all that wool. So I drafted a pattern for a cape using different patterns (I think I have them all, because my daughter-in-law likes them so much…) and I ended up wi…
Just a simple-follow-the-pattern dress for spring. Lisette simplicity pattern #2209. The good thing about it is that I made to learn how to adjust the length of the back, and it worked !
I love the chunky sweater/fluffy skirt style. I planned on making the skirt in the November issue of Burda, but didn’t have the patience to draw a pattern so I based mine on a half circular skirt+ …
This is beautiful ! I love everything about it ! Happy New year !
When I found this material, I laughed. I needed to do something out of it. So I mixed up features from a Lisette Simplicity pattern 1878 I had to create a “faux vintage-60’s look”.
I love it: it’…
I do not own an overlock machine, but I still wanted to be able to sew with jersey. This is my-full-of-mistakes-yet-very-wearable first attempt. Jersey acts a lot like some of my friends: you can’t…
A bucket bag that I improvised with leftovers from my stash. The strap is 2 dog collars jointed together, the closing is from an old belt. Wool outside, peachskin inside
I never sewed with chiffon, the design was easy, but the sewing well… I had to learn how to control something so slippery.
this cape was an improv starting with half a circle of japanese tweed. The colar was design “free hand” and the tweed flower is mounted on a pin. It was made with the edge of the material.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
