    corinneski commented on the article Trend Watching: The Future of Home Sewing

    I live in Sydney, Australia and have been sewing forever (50+ years). My Mother and Aunts sewed and we had sewing in primary school so I’ve just continued on making clothes for myself. I’m petite i…

    corinneski commented on the article Work It

    I retired from corporate land about 2 years ago and for me it was the dress, jacket, suit, sensible (not too high) shoes, etc. I used to dress it up with scarves and belts to make it more my style….

    corinneski commented on the article Why I Bother Sewing With a Treadle

    One of my Aunts bought one of these old Singer treadle machines and discovered she could buy all sorts of feet for it and made the most wonderful things from loose covers for the couch, dresses, sk…

    corinneski commented on the article Why Do YOU Sew?

    Peter, you’re absolutely spot on with your Top 10. Add to that sweatshop labour, excessive markups, poor fit, poor construction and terrible fabric – oh, where does it end?

    BTW, love your work a…

    corinneski commented on the project Roll-Up Organizer

    I think Step 1 should be: gather all the tools together so you know how big the fabric should be.

    corinneski commented on the project The "Eat Local" Dress

    The extra time to add piping was definitely worth it. The dress looks sensational and the addition of the red belt just makes the outfit. Fantabulous!

    Just downloaded the Stella jacket pattern. Really looking forward to making it. Read the comments by the others who’ve made it and will take them on board before I get started.

    corinneski commented on the article 5 New Basic Patterns + How to Embellish Them

    Love all of those garments especially the Mondrian look – my favourite. I really like the idea of a simple garment showing off the fabulous fabrics. I notice under the damask coat, the dress had a …

    Absolutely fabulous article! Over the years I’ve made everything from ballgowns to swimsuits but I’ve always baulked at making men’s clothes especially trousers because I thought they were too comp…

    corinneski commented on the project senior skip day jacket

    Wow! Very impressive – you’ve inspired me to have a go at making a lined jacket. My efforts in the past have ended up as UFOs. With this gorgeous jacket for inspiration I might just persevere and g…

    corinneski commented on the project One-of-a-Kind Tights

    These are just the coolest! Now I know what to do with some 2-way stretch jersey I have that would be way too overwhelming if I made it into a dress. Perfect as tights under a denim skirt or a tuni…

    Made from a Burda pattern (7659) in a black, white and pale grey cotton batiste which is heaven to wear on a really hot day. This pattern goes together really easily and the only adjustment I made …

    What a hoot! My sewing machine and overlocker compete with the jeweller’s equipment, the cardmaking, stamping, photography and painting gear. No way I’m showing that room to ANYONE!

    My ‘era’ was the sixties – Mary Quant was my fashion heroine, and Vidal Sassoon my hairstylist of choice. I have pictures of me dressed in multi-coloured shoes with low heels co-ordinated with shif…
