Still Sewing: an Upcoming Tutorial + a Sale

I haven't fallen off the face of the planet this week if you're wondering what I've been up to.  I've just been working really hard on a spring-themed sewing tutorial for you and I thought I'd have it done and posted today.  I'm just not happy with the materials I used, so I'm starting over. 

I'll give you a little hint about it:

I hope to have it completed and posted by Wednesday of next week.

In other sewing news, I took Simplicity 2936, the puff-sleeved blouse to sewing class with me last week and had to rip the sleeves out.  I put in two small bust darts in the bodice and now I have to fudge the sleeves a bit to make them fit.  *Sigh*.  It's all part of the learning process, isn't it?

{Sale Preview}

For my readers only!  If you're planning to make a swimsuit this year you are now the first to know that vintage and contemporary swimsuit patterns will go on sale in the shop next week. As it's wedding season, wedding and formal wear patterns are on sale now and will continue to be on sale through May.

Until next week then....


  1. Ooooh can't wait to see your tutorial.

    I made myself a few swimsuits back in my teen years - the 70's. Nowadays i think the world would be better served if I make myself muu-muus to wear water side. ;)
