    Oh wow, I’m so impressed. This is really great, I’m very jealous of your knitting skills.

    laurenp added the project More DS cases
    Dsc_0153_listing

    Yes, more. These were commissioned. I was given creative license with choosing the fabrics and buttons, and I inadvertantly made them very gender specific. Not too happy with that, but individually…

    Thanks! I’m really pleased with it.

    I love the mustard version on the pattern envelope, but perhaps a purple one would be nice…

    Twobytwo_listing

    I made this dress using a vintage pattern – Butterick 3212. It’s made from a heavy wool jersey fabric, and I omitted the back zip as it was pretty stretchy. I had to take it in a lot for it to fit …

    Dsc_0001scout_listing

    Made from some old matt (brushed?) silk fabric in my stash, it’s Grainline Studio’s Scout woven tee pattern.
    It came together pretty quickly, although I struggled with the silk bias binding on the…

    Dsc_0049_listing

    My first experience making up a Burda pattern from the magazine.
    I graded the pattern up two sizes at the hips, but it turned out I didn’t need to, and I ended up taking off a lot at the side seam…

    I love Grainline studio patterns, and this is no exception. My first pair of shorts since I was a child, I’m really pleased with how they turned out, despite a few mistakes on the waistband.

    Comp_listing

    A really nice simple pattern made up in some mystery fabric I bought in a charity shop years ago. The facings are made from silk, as I didn’t have enough fabric. I slightly flared the skirt out fro…

    My second tank using Grainline Studio’s pattern, and I’m very pleased with it.
    The fabric is salvaged from one of my nana’s skirts that I had butchered a few years ago, so it feels great to have m…

    Thanks!

    Well I’m glad it’s not just me. It seemed like it was the perfect fit for everyone else.

    It’s a cotton lawn, weird print but super soft.

    I tried to make a top using Colette’s Sorbetto pattern ages ago with no luck. It was way too small, the armholes were too high. This is my freehand redraft – literally tracing over it and extending…

    Nothing new or exciting here, a plain Lydia. I used the same fabric as my first ever Lydia (which was way too big and has since gone to a charity shop). I’m pleased with the fit, and it’s good to m…
