Santa Rosa, Cali...
I had a pair of pants that were too big, and an awful shirt that looked like a tent when I put it on- So I decided to make something else out of it. Patter was my own design. I still have enough left to make some other items too. Thinking about purses and bags to make.
I’m not completely happy about how little my sewing machine can handle. It just won’t sew through more than 4 layers of a medium weight fabric. Which means my tri-fold is very limp. Thinking about making another one with cardboard inserts or something.
Polyester lining/pockets, polyester outter. Two snaps. Hand sewing needle (to hide seam where it was turned inside out after assembling)
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
