How to Easily Gather Fabric How to Easily Gather Fabric: A Sewing Tutorial Years ago I learned a really easy way to gather fabric and I wanted to share it with you. For those of you who have sewn for years I know this will be nothing new, but for other this may be a great time saver for you.
There were some interesting comments in the post last week about the difference between the envelope illustration and the actual finished garment. This difference is especially pronounced in 50s vintage patterns, where the illustrations are so much more fantasy than reality. So how does one visualize the end product? For me, it's a result of analyzing the garment construction, fabric choices, and my own body type. Here's what I mean: 1.

Greetings Crab-eating Macaque with those super long tails, I can totally see why you prefer skirts instead of trousers. I always wished I had a tail. They seem so expressive. Tutorial: How I added a midriff band to my T-shirt. | The Snug Bug

Special Sunday greetings you naked molerats! Since you’re so naked, I thought you might want to make yourselves some nice little circle skirts. And perhaps, like me, you find yourself with little mole rat patterns just a touch on the small side.
I really hope you aren’t going to kill me…but this is probably the one week out of the whole competition where I do not have a complete tutorial. The dress was just so tailored to fit my daughter exactly, that in the time allotted to create the design, I just couldn’t do it all. But there is hope! PR&P Tutorials, Week 5 - Fishtail Circle Skirt

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.
Winter Shirt Dress I taught a class a few weekends ago to the girls in my Relief Society on how to make my t-shirt dresses. I created a handout with step-by-step instructions, and showed them how to cut out and attach each of the pieces. I created this dress in the class, and figured that I would share it with you all as well. Since we are now in full fledged winter mode, I decided to use a long-sleeve black top, and paired with with some gray linen I picked up at the LA fabric district. I added some ties to get a more fitted look around the waist. I know I've posted some tutorials for these dresses before, but I think this one is a little more comprehensive.
I stepped even further out of my comfort zone with this one. This is the first time I have made an actual dress, without taking the top from an existing shirt. (unless you count my Laurel project when I was 16. But lets be honest, my mom did all the work.) I used every single last scrap I had left of this awesome purpley-pink striped knit that I made my cardigan out of. lavender love
Many of you have probably already seen this tutorial on Ucreate, but for those of you who haven't seen it, here is a tutorial for my Pinwheel Skirt. Enjoy! The Pinwheel Skirt Lets get started…. The Pinwheel Skirt
I promise this will be my last time using blue and white striped fabric for a while. I just had enough left over from my Nautical Dress to whip this baby out. I decided to make the waistband on this skirt stretchy. It is just nice to be able to pull it on with a shirt and go. It's a lot more casual, which is nice for lounging around, soaking up the last few days of the summer sun.
This skirt didn't turn out quite as planned. I didn't intend for it to be so... cupcake-y. And I guess by that I mean poofy. Part of the reason why the top is so puffy is because I used muslin for the whole thing. If you want to avoid that, get some cotton gauze for the top part or an equivalent fabric. Anyway, here it is - the cupcake skirt! Summer of Skirts - The Cupcake Skirt

I’m addicted to collecting vintage rhinestone necklaces. Not only can they be inexpensive, they are great pieces to DIY with since most of the time, they are much too small to fit comfortably around the neck. And thanks to the jewelry trailblazers behind Lulu Frost, Dylanlex and Dannijo, I was inspired to rework some sparklers that were just not sufficient enough to wear on their own.
