This week, Kasia (member postmodest) wows us with a fun and in-depth project variation, “Kasia’s Lovely Blouse,” using the 09/2011 Jumpsuit pattern. She used and incorporated Dritz products into her variation with stunning results.

Here are some of the products she used. Visit her project’s page for the full list. Also, check out her two super-easy ways to embellish a garment using Dritz products.

    I would love to find a buttonhole tool, but haven’t been able to find one anywhere.

    Lately I have been searching for the perfect bias tape maker. I am just starting to learn how to make my own, and I haven’t had a lot of luck so far. I would love a magic little machine to make all my bias tape for me. An added bonus would be if it could do all of my circle hems as well =)

    An adjustable dress form so I can get my close to finally fit just that extra bit better :)

    I should probably say a dress form, but I know that Dritz has a wonderful selection of them that are easy to use and affordable (when you’re not a single mom on a single income), I’ve been lusting after one for a long while. What I can’t seem to locate is a decent and affordable ham and seam roll.

    I second the above comments. An affordable dress form (or winning one?!) would be great. Have thought about making my own, but if I lose or gain weight it won’t be so useful. Also, I make lots of things form other people, so a dress from only in my size is limited in its usefulness.

    That tailor’s marking set is exactly what I have been looking for, but most of all I want a dress form. I have been hoping to improve my sewing skills by learning to fit patterns better.

    Definitely a good dress form. Of course, if I had an unlimited budget I’m sure I could find one very easily!
