Dixie DIY: indie pattern company (my finished hot cocoa sweater pattern as it looks in Adobe Illustrator) Ok ladies and gents, get ready to roll up your sleeves and dig in.

Stretch fabrics and fit Recently, I received an email from Carole. Carole just got herself a brand new Wiggle skirt pattern and she had a question: “Does this pattern really need a fabric with 50% stretch? Would it work with a fabric that has 20% stretch? Would I have to use a larger size to compensate for the difference in stretch, or add some ease to the pattern?” What an excellent question. Applying Golden Section Concepts to WW2 Suits « 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World I’m making the View 2 Jacket from Advance 2960 for Sherry’s RTW Tailoring Sewalong.

well-suited: Pattern Puzzle - The Pocket Drape Last Saturday we all enjoyed a fab conversation about the #PatternPuzzle. As a bonus Julie's friend, Lynn Hoffman, shared a fashion history connection with our puzzle and an 1880's polonaise jacket. When posting the sketch of the puzzle I included images of the historic reference. It is interesting to see how Lynn made the pattern shape connection with the drape and waterfall of these historic garments. The design for this puzzle is in fact 15 years old. Asymmetric skirt This is the first adaptation from my Basic Pencil skirt pattern I made a few weeks ago. It’s all about showing you how easy it can be to start from there and create the skirt of your dreams. I like asymmetric shapes but as keeping it easy is always my intention, I used a draped front you can close with hooks. You don’t need to install complicated zippers or buttons and I think sewing on a hook is very relaxing.
