I recently bought Cal Patch's book 'Design-it-yourself clothes. Patternmaking simplified' and I was dying to try it out and make clothing from scratch  Smiley.
Drafting the pattern wasn't as easy as it looked and it took a few tries to get it right but now I'm quite happy with the result. Here's my first project, a simple dress:

The fabric is a super nice light blue poplin. It was all sewn on my vintage treadle sewing machine (except for the buttonholes and inside seam finish).
I screwed up a little on the sleeves and the neckline and I hope with my next project it will turn out better!


Here's the finished pattern:

I have a longer post on my blog about is as well: http://tidytipsy.wordpress.com/2010/03/15/dressmaking-my-first-dress/
I can really recommend the book, I loved learning to make patterns and it teaches you to make a lot of variations as well!

Thanks for looking!

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Scandinavia Quilt on: April 07, 2010 01:15:55 AM
I wanted to show off the quilt I made my dad for his birthday  Grin . I love bright patchwork but I know he likes a simpler, more elegant and scandinavian look, so here's what I came up with:

It's a pinstriped red linen blend on one side and a navy cotton on the other. I handquilted it with embroidery floss in cream and red.


except for the binding, which is sewn on by machine on one side it's entirely handsewn and since I was short on time I completed it in only 2 and a half days  Shocked. Never want to do that again though  Wink.


I have a little more detailed post about it on my blog: http://tidytipsy.wordpress.com/2010/04/06/scandinavia-quilt/

Thanks for looking  Smiley
