Pattern Review: BS-01-2017-102 (Wardrobe Sudoku Item #9)

In my original plan, my “accessory” pieces were going to be a blazer remake from the July 2011 Burda and a Little French Jacket from the February 2013 Burda.  I have made the executive decision that I won’t have time to make two tailored pieces (since I was going to have to re-trace and re-fit … More Pattern Review: BS-01-2017-102 (Wardrobe Sudoku Item #9)

Kwik Sew Spring 2017

So Kwik Sew had a spring release, but I’m just going to be frank and say it really isn’t that exciting.  I love Kwik Sew, but it just isn’t the same since the take-over.  Lots of kids items and crafty stuff here, only 4 adult clothing patterns, and none of them particularly inspiring.  Here is … More Kwik Sew Spring 2017

Pattern Review: BS-10-2010-104 (Wardrobe Sudoku Item #6)

New Patterns: Jalie, Marfy, and (*gasp*) Burda Plus Magazine?

Things I’ve been doing: sewing lots of stuff for my Wardrobe Sudoku Contest Entry.  Things I haven’t been doing: taking pictures of stuff for my Wardrobe Sudoku Contest Entry.  Expect a giant blog info-dump of multiple pattern reviews at some point in the near future.  In the meantime, to distract you from my lack of … More New Patterns: Jalie, Marfy, and (*gasp*) Burda Plus Magazine?
