The Wonder of Knits As I’ve gone through my Wardrobe Architect journey over the last few months, I’ve realized how important comfort is to me. Sure, it seems obvious that our clothes should be comfortable. But when I really looked at what pieces of clothing I wore again and again, at least half of them turned out to be made from knits. As I’ve learned more and more about working with knit fabrics while collaborating with Alyson, my sewing life has changed dramatically. Here’s why:

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!

I needed time to understand why she was like she was. She's one of the most complex character of the whole Saga: since she was a child, she grew up as a true lion, strond and conscious of her power, but she was also told it's not right for a woman to be like that, she was told who to marry, what to do. I don't think she's such the evil woman everyone believes; she grew up in a very umpleasant and difficult world in which women aren't allowed to stand up, they can only worship husbands and give them children.
