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.

Free Pattern Month Day 24 - Colette Patterns: Sorbetto Tank Top I discovered Sarai's website through her adorable FREE bloomer pattern which I've used frequently. Their style is very sophisticated and their dress patterns are unique. I especially love the fabrics they use in their variations and their fun photoshoots! Colette Patterns has some great professional pieces available to purchase. One of their most famous which you might have seen all over the blogosphere: the Lady Grey Overcoat Pattern. Sarai loves the hard work of running a business and figuring out how to implement her bazillions of ideas. Caitlin Clark, stitcher extraordinaire who puts together samples, helps with design, and comes up with fun projects for the website. Thank you Colette Patterns for being a guest here on Grosgrain today. Summer is a great time for some creative stash-busting. Enter the Sorbetto top, a simple tank in a loose but body skimming 60s style, finished with exposed bias trim and a center box pleat down the front. The pattern is multi-sized, from size 0 to 18.

blouse Thewallinna and other creatures: Little French Jacket sew-along In March, I attended a sewing camp led by Susan Khalje and learnt how to sew a classic French Jacket. Since then, I have worn the jacket most of the times when the weather has allowed it. Now, with the autumn approaching I've been itching to make another jacket. And since my blog is receiving most of its traffic on the posts about the jacket, I decided to combine business with pleasure and launch a sew-along! For my next jacket, I've got inspired by Karl's Little Black Jacket collection and so the name came out naturally: Little French Jacket. Sew-alongs seems to be quite popular among modern seamstresses but at the same time it's a lot of responsibility. The icing on the cake is that this sew-along will coincide with the release of Susan's French jacket lesson on DVD and a pattern of a classic jacket with a three-piece sleeve. Having purchased Susan's Craftsy class two years ago, I review some parts of it on a weekly basis, because it contains a tremendous amount of useful information.

Small Things Finished project: sleeveless blouse for VLV | By Gum, By Golly by Tasha • April 7, 2011 • First and foremost, I want to thank you all so very much for your congratulations and kind comments on my last post. It’s been overwhelmingly wonderful reading all your supportive comments. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I recently bought a pair of 50s capris from Bombshell Shocked. They’re plaid, they’re tight, they’re fantastic. The main problem was that I wasn’t really sure if I had a blouse that I could wear with them. Even though I steadfastly had refused to add any other crafty projects to my list before VLV, I had already planned one new thing and surely I wasn’t going to take on a blouse now, too. I took a peek just in case. It’s a sleeveless blouse from Butterick 8946. I made view C, the sleeveless version with faux pocket flaps. (Sorry the photos are a bit inconsistent, this red is so hard to capture in a photograph and I just don’t have the time to take nicer photos outside right now!) (Don’t mind the crappy-looking ponytail.

A Few Threads Loose: Draft at Home Patterns: A How - To Today I have an interesting tutorial on draft at home patterns for you. One of the questions I get the most often about these patterns from my shop is, "I thought I understood how these patterns work but now that I look at the files you've sent, I just don't see how the little pattern becomes a bigger one." This question is referring to the draft at home patterns that use a ruler to scale a tiny pattern up to a full sized one, similar to the Lutterloh system. This is a concept much easier to explain with pictures so should you decide to try one of these patterns, to make your lives easier I have put together a tutorial for you. What you will need: Your bust measurement, Paper ( I use a roll of tracing paper that is 36" wide), A thumb tack or push pin, A small piece of cardboard, A pencil, A ruler or yardstick, And tape. A French curve will also come in handy but isn't a requirement. First you'll want to print out everything. Next you need to pin your ruler to your pattern. Any questions?

The Sunny Swing Tee Sewing Tutorial + Free Pattern | The Sara Project I am so thrilled with how this top turned out. The A-line shape is so flattering, and I’l take a stripe and floral combo any day. I am even more excited to share my original pattern with you!! The pattern is available as a free download, but it is currently only in a size small. Most programs will automatically shrink or scale a PDF to print within your printer’s printable regions. This tee is SO incredibly easy to make. First, you will need fabric. The amount of fabric you need for the front center panel depends on the direction the pattern runs on your fabric; it will need to be at least 26″ long. For the Rest of the top, pick a knit fabric that you like. Step 1: Cut out your fabric! Step 2: I used a 1/2″ seam allowance, ball point needle and zig zag stitch. Trim and iron your seams. Step 3: Sew the front and back bodice pieces together at the shoulder seams. Step 4: Insert sleeves. But first, we need to hem our sleeves. Sew. Step 5: Sew up the side seams. Iron out your seams.
