    I am soooo envious of your sewing room! I’m sure if I had a wonderful space like that to work in I’d be inspired to do more sewing. Actually, you have inspired me to convert my messy office into something much more usable. Thank you.

    Hi! Thanks so much for your awesome comments on my suit variation! I love the work you did on your jacket – it’s gorgeous! I agree with Bola your JJ blouse is adorable :) I’ve too been wanting to make one – even have the pattern but keep getting caught up with my own work – but you’ve inspired me to make it! Good luck with the comp!

    Oh thanks for the comments too! yeah the fabric was a reject from my husband- so I made him some trousers out of a wool fabric instead (will post soon). Yeah I know they posted them quickly!! I though there would be more people who would enter though??I love you JJ blouse!! I have been thinking about making this blouse for a while (I even bought fabric and cut the pattern out!) but somehow it never happened. I think your variation is great and the fabric is fantasic!- a truly brilliant job! I worked with silk satin for my christmas top (will post soon too) and it was very hard, cos it kept slipping!! but it looked good when it was finished!.- I must make JJ!- u have just convinced me again!!bx

    Cool suit! and the lining very well done!! like I said I had to rush mine at the end so the lining is not great at the bottom but I think i’ll change this later. Hey did u receive a confirmation email from the burdastyle team when u sent in your pics?? I wanted to check they had received them so I sent an email but I didnt get a reply…..?bx

    Thanks so much for your nice comment on my friend’s xmas dress! I definitely understand, I may have underestimated how much I was taking on just a teeeenny bit this season haha. Managed to escape unscathed and everyone has their presents! Hope it’s the same for you. Your sewing room is so organized and adorable. Woo ikea~

    hi there, i got the sweater knit on sale just at my local fabricland – $4.00/m and i used less than a meter. it was a little tough to work with so i was glad that it was inexpensive!

    Hey how are you!? I’m okay thanks! yeah i have been away cos i had been really busy with work and making Robert’s (hubby) trousers and the suit variation too! phew – it was all done in kind of a rush- I literally finished the suit on saturday and took photos cos I wouldn’t hav any more time! after that! Did u hav time to make it??how did u find it if u did? I found it really hard because I’m not great at altering patterns properly- i saw a members variation and woow! it is really cool! and she made all sorts of alterations that I could only dream about making properly!! oh well practice, practice I must practice!!bx

    thanks for your response! actually, I have found some great tutorials online! It is so genereous that people will spend so much time and effort showing others how to do projects… Anyway. I think I have an idea for a wallet, hope it turns out well. I have seen your fantastic blog! I love it!!!! Can’t wait to see more of your stuff!!!!!

    Thank you for you comment on my dress. I was really happy with the outcome. Looks better on a person…PS – I’m so jealous of your little sewing studio!…I work in a tiny tiny room off a twin bed and a little desk.
