Fehr Trade: tag One of the favourite features of my PB Jam Leggings pattern is that there’s a secure, inner pocket at the upper back to keep things like your phone, keys, or gels handy while you’re working out. While I was developing the pattern, I decided to make this pocket one layer, and use the exterior of the leggings as the other side of the pocket, sealing off the bottom with topstitching. But sometimes you may not want any topstitching visible from the right side, so to do this, you only need one extra piece of fabric and a few short steps. Making the pocket invisible from the outside will only add about 5 minutes max onto your construction time, but if your fabric is thick, definitely consider cutting your pocket from a thinner lycra! Here’s the finished invisible pocket on my latest “rainbow sherbert” pair I’ve just finished! instead of just one. Peplums are a major AW12 trend and one that’s well within reach of most home sewists and high street shoppers. read more >> 12 July 2012, 14:27 Step 1

République du Chiffon - Couture ModerneRépublique du Chiffon - Couture Moderne Pop Couture | La couture gratuite ! Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing Casey’s Elegant Musings Dublin Lady - Une Petite Fourmi... Une commande pour une jeune fille de 16 ans, qui met du 34. Elle souhaitait une veste de type paletot, j'ai tout de suite pensé au patron de la Dublin Lady... Mais avec l'ampleur hyper réduite car la miss est toute fine. J'ai choisi des tissus d'exception pour réaliser le modèle, la gabardine rigide de France Duval-Stalla, et sa baptiste assortie. Bon, avec tout ça, j'étais sûre de mon coup... Jusqu'au moment du choix épineux des fronces/plis creux. Je suis très contente du rendu, je pense que je referai le modèle pour moi, mais avec des poches prises dans la couture et des pattes de serrage boutonnées aux poignets note technique pour réduire l'ampleur : par rapport au patron de la Dublin Lady, taille 34, au lieu de faire les modifications du supplément 1) ajout de 2 cm sur les devants jupe et empiècement au lieu de 8 cm 2) Suppression de 4 cm sur le devant jupe de la doublure 3) suppression de 8,5 cm sur la pliure de la jupe dos.

Little Red Infinity Dress Tutorial *Tutorial made by Melissa @ Sew Like My Mom for her win during the Red Week challenge.* I made this little dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I used some soft polyester knit I found at Hancock Fabrics for $4.99/yard. I found these dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself. Next, cut a waistband 10″ tall and the length of your waist you measured. Now for construction.

Coletterie New. Obsession. - A Dress A Day Just so we're clear: I freaking love this dress. So far I've made it twice, and if I am ever in my sewing room while the sun is up, I will take a picture or two of the ones that I've completed. (I also have two more cut out and half-sewn.) Here is why this dress is near-perfect: 1. 2. 3. 4. The only downside is that the neckline is a leeeetle wide for regular jewel-neck cardigans. Things I did slightly different-like: There's a facing, but I just used bias tape for the collar.

How to Make a Quilt - Martha's 7 stepsLearn How To Make Quilts | Martha's Quilt Making Videos My Spare Time: Simple Tea Towel Apron Simple Tea Towel Apron So many people mentioned having beautiful tea towels they couldn't bear to use when I posted the Tea Towel Tote how-to, so I thought you might also be interested in my super easy tea towel apron. This is even easier than the tote, and takes about 15 minutes. Click any picture to make it larger. Supplies1 tea towel2.5-3 yds ribbon* In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm using these super cute Valentine towels I found on clearance last year. First, fold your tea towel in half lengthwise, right sides together. Find the center of your ribbon and align it with the center of the towel's folded edge. Sew along the top and bottom of the ribbon, through the ribbon and both layers of towel, top stitching when you stop and start for security. Fold the top layer of towel up to meet the ribbon. Sew just through the pocket layers, at the edges and your pocket divisions, backstitching at the openings for security. You're done! Now make another one because that was so stinkin' easy!
