Free Pattern: Big Fat Cowl Big Fat Cowl Pattern I was wanting to make one of these for a while and am glad I finally did. This pattern is really easy but I did find it a little time consuming none the less the outcome it beautiful! I also really loved working with this Lion Brand's Wool Ease Wool, I love the texture and the colour. Cast on 80 stitches, join with the circular needles and begin knitting in the round. Rows 14-25 Knit all stitches. Row 26 *Knit 4, Knit 2 together. Cast off loosely and sew in ends of yarn, I don't recommend blocking this as it will take away from the natural shape and roll at the bottom so block with caution. 1 ball of Lion Brand's Wool Ease thick and quick, colour I used is Snapdragon. Oh and yes this is an adult sized cowl my little guy wanted to try it on so I snapped a photo of him wearing it!

picnic dress Several people have asked me how to make my Picnic Dress. It’s a bit too complicated for the step by step instruction on how to draft a pattern I gave for the draped t-shirt, but I hope this will be enough detail for anyone who is familiar with how dresses are made. You will need 4 yards of 45″ fabric and an 18″ zipper. These are the pieces of the pattern. Mark out the measurements listed and the distances between them. If you’re not used to making your own sleeves, trace both the arm hole and the top of the sleeve off a pattern you’ve used before and like. To make the curve of the skirt even, use your tape measure like an enormous protractor. To gather the top, mark out a distance ¾ of the difference between bust and underbust measurement on one side. After gathering both the lining and the top layer of the bodice, sew them together along the neckline. Sew the edge of the facing to the neckline on each back piece. Sew the front and back together at the shoulders.

Free Pattern Month Day 8 - Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing: Half Slip Pattern Please give a warm welcome to today's guest, Gretchen, from Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing.(Today's featured pattern after intro) I found Gretchen's blog after a fellow blogger recommended it to me. But I've also seen her via Burdastyle as one of their very prolific members! Her blog began in a sort of Julie & Julia style. In September of 2008, she came across Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing: a guide from 1952, that, through the completion of 14 Vogue patterns, promised to make one an expert home seamstress. See some of her projects from Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing below. Gretchen's site has since grown into more than just a sew and see blog. Admittedly, I have a tendency to short cut my way through sewing at times, Gretchen shows you the RIGHT way ie. the better way;) Just love the retro style! Love this red lace dress as much as I do? Gorgeous! But one of my favorite parts of Gretchen's blog is her talent for explaining techniques. Your pattern will be a simple rectangle.

Make your own abaya! part1 « Clouddragon As the muttawa have been confiscating abayas with colour in Riyad, I would like to support my friends over there by posting some very simple abaya designs. Any idiot can make these ;) Besides, I’m getting a lot of search-engine terms on ”how to make abaya” and I don’t want to disappoint. For those visitors; don’t look too much at my other posts, you might be shocked… So, three dead-easy abaya designs, very suitable for your own decorations, which will be in the next part. Materials: One big advantage of making your own clothes is that you can use better and more healthy materials as the synthetic ones so often used for abayas nowadays. Fastenings: You can use snaps, hooks, zippers, buttons or velcro, it is your own choice. Measurements of the patterns: I can’t give exact measurements on these designs, you have to find out your own measurements. If your pattern is precisely cut on your finished dress/abaya, make sure you allow an extra 1,5 cm for stitching and edging the material.
