July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana , I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing . She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I’m devastatingly terrified of knits so I steered clear and made my (award winning) cotton fabric dress.
tiered-skirts Just Pull One On With its elastic waist comfort, this skirt is great casual wear when made in cotton gauze. But you can also dress it up with fancy fabric. The choice is yours. The best thing about this skirt is it can be made without a pattern. Our skirt is sized for 36-38 hips but you can alter it to fit you by following the directions below.
I have recently discovered these beautiful folded flowers, and I absolutely cannot stop making them. Tsumami Kanzashi are traditional Japanese folded flowers, made from small squares of silk, that are typically worn by women as hair ornaments in traditional hairstyles. They seem really complicated and intricate, and they can certainly be that if you really want; but it completely doesn't need to be! I love to make them out of cotton prints that are fun and bright, in addition to scraps of silk and other light fabrics.

Made this little dress yesterday for my five-year-old, just in time for the first day of summer. I based the design on a Liberty of London for Target dress that we bought in the spring — a very simple pattern with elastic at the top and simple straps (without elastic).

I've seen a few blog posts for converting men's pants or jeans to toddler-sized jeans, but they all seem to involve a lot of seam-ripping, deconstructing and lots of sewing. I was after a quicker and easier way - I get limited time at the sewing machine each week, and I want to see results!
