    Hi Ellen. Hope you had a great Christmas, and Happy New Year 2016. I am going to try again this year to post at least one project a month; I didn’t succeed last year. But at least I have projects from last year that aren’t yet posted, so there should be no excuse. Our Christmas was nice. Take care, Rita

    Thanks for your Input on my wrap dress-it’s 116 9/2011. I have the fabric about 3 years and not ever realised I didn’t have enough. It’s double layer chiffon.-lot’s of orange in the fabric so will try to do-the under-layer in orange chiffon- and if that does’t work will colour contrast as suggested by yourself and Izbott

      ooh, I would love your gorgeous fabric! Then I think you have to review and find another solution – maybe another pattern… or a skirt or top instead. Whatever you decide I’m sure it will be fabulous and I loooove orange ♥

    HI Ellen ! Congrats on your modelling wins !!! We were gone for the month of July; we had a nice relaxing time and saw so many neat things. I saw several Singer treadle machines, but none were for sale. I still have to get photos of my projects…my hubby took some, but I look hilarious in some of them, but I’ll post them soon any ways. It is still very hot here, and dry, and many wildfires. Air quality is not the greatest right now, and a very short supply of water. Maybe time to go on the road again. :-) Drape Books? I have to give you credit, I don’t like draping. Looking forward to seeing your creations. Have a great day !!!

We also spend some time at our cottage where I have a sewing machine :) I’m looking forward to see your projects. Lucky you – we haven’t had any nice summer this year, average 15 degrees..! I have just started my first drape project, so I hope it will be nice… Cheers and have a great day too :-)

    Haha, no problem. Apparently, every time I’m interested in a dress pattern and I check who’s made it, I run into you.

    Sorry if I might have come off stalkerish; that was not my intention! I had no idea it could be seen who favorited what. I’m newly registered here. :))

    Hi Ellen, I have aquestion over the instructions of the wrap dress with pleats…the one you made in linnen. I am getting crazy with the dutch instructions and I have the felling that are a few things missing. The pleats in the bodice are nowhere to be found in my instructions so I guess there are simply pleats that I need to make before attaching that front yoke, right ? And than the back yoke…I am getting crazy I can`t make any sens out of the instructions. I have 2 of yoke 8 and I find in the instructions talking about one…please if is not to much trouble can you explain in a few words how did you do that part? Thank you a million :)

      Hi Camelia, my instruction is in Danish, but you are right it doesn’t say anything about the pleats. I just lay the pleats in the direction as in the pattern before attaching it to the front yoke as you say. Regarding the yoke you can see that you need 4 pcs of no. 6 and 2 pcs of no. 8, and you have stabilizer for the outer part, the others are for the inner part. You can sew both parts together at the same time with the body-part between (both for the front and the back part) I did also lined the dress, so it was a lot of work.. I hope this will help you a bit. Good luck my friend!
