    I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for always giving me so nice comments! :) I really appreciate them! And I forgot to answer one of your questions about the pleated, gathered details on my Big Checked Grey Dress! I got that detail from a book called “Art of Manipulating Fabric” by Colette Wolff. That book is really inspiring, so I can only recommend it! P.S.: You made some really cute bags! I especially like the Sashiko Stitching on the Chocolate Wave Makeup Bag! So nice!

      You’re very welcome! :) I just love your stuff so much. I’ll have to see if I can locate a copy of the Colette Wolff book— thank you for sharing! And thank you for your kind comment on my bags, as well! :)

    Thank you for your penchant for detail. By your noting credits on Go Olive, I discovered polkadrops, too. First click I hit purses-but, your creations are really special. Like playing roulette on the site without knowing the language, yet. Maybe if we do our homework!

      I was trying to learn Japanese and then took a break— got caught up. But I’d really like to learn it one day. Then the patterns and instructions won’t be so difficult to use! :)

    Hi! Thanks so much for your compliments on my projects. I really appreciate them. Also, thanks for adding me as a friend.

    I hope to pick up the pace and continue to churn out projects this Fall/Winter season. It’s what I love to do and I want to really devote regular time to my craft.

    I really like your clutches and totes by the way. Very cute!

      Awww, thank you so much! <3

      I know exactly what you mean! I’d really like to dedicate some good solid time to sewing this season. I hit a lull this past summer and really can’t wait to get back into the swing of things! Good luck and I’ll be sure to peek into your studio now and again! ;)

      Thank you so much! That’s so nice of you! :)

      I made it based off of a pattern I found in a book (not here on Burda).

    Re: Corrine Pants question. I believe the general rule is that patterns made for woven fabrics can be used with knits, but patterns made for knits MUST be used with knits.

    It’s a very basic pant; you shouldn’t have trouble finding something similar for woven.

    You can always trace it to muslin and make a mock-up to see where you need to adjust. I expect you’ll need to make the crotch lower (shorter inseam) and add more ease all around the hips and waist.
