Today we’re going to add inside pockets onto a blazer. I love the blazer, but the pockets that came with it are essentially non-functional. The opening is a vertical slit and they are only a few inches deep. I’m pretty sure I would only trust them to hold my chapstick, if that. So, we will be adding a pair of patch pockets to the inside of the blazer to make it that much more useful.
Today is a good day. Today I finally begin my Christmas present to me! I’m going to make a classy plaid skirt that will *hopefully* be done in time for Christmas. This will be a gathered skirt tutorial. I’ve been wanting to make something plaid for the winter season. In the back of my mind I kept thinking about this lovely skirt made by Gina Michelle and decided that it would be a classy winter look using some plaid fabric.
Hello! It’s been a hot summer this year, and I have been living in dresses (which I have to admit is one of my favorite parts of summer!) I’ve been thinking about adding a new dress to my summer wardrobe and finally got some time to make it happen. So today we will be making a nice, comfortable striped summer dress perfect for hot and lazy August evenings (my favorite weather, in fact!). This dress will have a v-neckline in the front and back, an elastic waistband, and very useful front pockets. We will first make our pattern using an old dress as a guide, and then our striped dress. Read on for my Striped Summer Dress Tutorial!
I had previously made an inseam pockets tutorial which uses interfacing to help create sturdy pockets on clothing made with a very light fabric. However, I’ve realized that most of the other times I’ve made inseam pockets, I do it a bit differently and don’t use as much interfacing. Hence, today’s post titled Inseam Pockets Tutorial Version 2.
Hi all! I just recently made Simplicity’s 1360 dress using their pattern, and after trying it on to see how it fit, I realized that the dress would be way better with some inseam pockets. And I figured why not share it with you?
I love to dress up, but must say that I have a hard time when it’s cold out. So, for my winter wardrobe, I decided to make this comfy and cozy sweaterdress with long sleeves and an elastic waistband. To add to the comfort factor, I added front pockets, because, honestly, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? Now onto our comfy, cozy sweatdress tutorial!
