My Image Summer 2018

My Image usually only produces 2 magazines a year (in the adult sizes): Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter, along with a few new PDF patterns that are included as part of a magazine purchase.  However, this year they’ve released a special Summer issue of the magazine, not included as part of a normal subscription.  There aren’t as … More My Image Summer 2018

Sewing Podsplosion

This post has been sitting in drafts for quite a while… Garment progress and pattern announcements have been superseding it for a few weeks now, but with a massive sewing space spring cleaning in progress, and a long stretch of skating costume commissioned sewing ahead of me, I thought I’d do a post not so … More Sewing Podsplosion

I really liked these pants because … More Pattern Review: Burda 7195 (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #5)

Pattern Review: Simplicity 3536D (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #4)

The final top for my Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest entry is an oldie but a goodie – A remake of Simplicity 3536D.  This was one of the first patterns I ever made, way back in 2011, and despite my imperfect sewing, I loved the top so much I wore the fabric past the point of … More Pattern Review: Simplicity 3536D (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #4)

Pattern Review: BS-06-2014-103 (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #3)

Continuing on with my Sew Geeky/Pattern Review Mini Wardrobe, I decided to make BurdaStyle 06-2014-103 as my second top for including in the contest entry. I thought that the contrast trim nicely echoed the design lines of many of the costumes from the Broadway musical, most specifically the white dress Esmeralda wears at the end … More Pattern Review: BS-06-2014-103 (Sew Geeky Spring/Wardrobe Contest Item #3)
