First, I have seen scrabble pillow somewhere on the internet : http://www.hartfeltdesign.com/cream-and-black-letter-cushions-76-p.asp
and remembered my sister in law and her husband's passion are boardgames.

So I decided to make them scrabble pillow case with their initials.
Basically, I just printed letters at the right size and appliqued it then constructed the pillow case (only one piece !).
Here is the result :

Thanks everyone for the nice feedbacks. I am looking forward for cold weather now !  Grin

I became aware that the pattern I used is not so easily accessible for you :[
So... I would recommend Mc call's pattern M5766 http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5766-products-7952.php?page_id=515
It has been done by Megann Nielsen http://blog.megannielsen.com/2009/12/the-big-winter-coat-reveal/ And actually, I used her coat as my second inspiration !
The collar she made is different but still it's versatile (which I love).

Wish you all a nice sunday  Smiley

> The shoes were bought in Germany, from a store called Deichmann : http://www.deichmann-shoes.co.uk/site/en/index.php (the quality is actually terribly poor but I was deseperatly looking for red shoes to go with my graduation dress at that time  Roll Eyes)

> The umbrella was bought while I was living in South Korea. It comes from a department store, but I can't remember which one. Anywas, this style (cute / childish / dots) is quite common in South Korea  Cheesy

Before starting this project, I was very anxious about making a coat myself. Actually, this is my first project with lining (I don't usually sew complicated stuff). Turned out, it wasn't that hard at all ! So I would recommend to give it a try Smiley

can you get these books in english.

Unfortunately, I don't think there an english version of the book.
The name of the compagny is "citronille" http://www.citronille.fr/ and they don't mention any stores abroad on their website...
Also, I cannot say, it's a good idea to buy the book anyway because there are absolutely NO SCHEME to help with the explanations !

But I can help with the translations if needed  Wink

I have been wanting a red coat for a long time (and I've been really picky about it).
Finally, I made one myself (even if I was scared to ruined the beautiful wool I purchased !).
Actually, it wasn't that hard  Tongue I used a pattern from a french book, Les intemportels pour futures mamans http://www.amazon.fr/Intemporels-futures-mamans-Astrid-Provost/dp/2081214350. This book is actually about pregnant clothing, but I really like it anyway and believe it's suitable for anyone Grin There is a nice community blog about this book here : http://fancitronille.canalblog.com/archives/__ipmaman___p86___manteau_trois_quarts/index.html

The only thing I changed was using a ribbon for the closing instead of buttons.

The collar can be worn "up" :

or "down" :

i'm curious about the back - does it have a cowl-ish draping effect in the back? i've been looking at your tutorial and thinking of making a dress for myself. but i was wondering about the back of the "top" part and think i might be missing something. if the elastic is at the top of the "bottom," what prevents the top of the "top" from gaping in the back? or did you cut your "top" much narrower than your "bottom"?

I have the same questions, I think I missed something in the tutorial  Huh
But, here is how I did it : My top is narrower than the bottom, I put all the gathers in the back in order to get a "slim fit".

So I didn't use any elastic at all, I cannot figure how to keep the elastic effect if I sew something narrower next to the bottom part. (I hope it's clear).   As I said, I had to open the dress in the back (I used a button to close it), otherwise I cannot get in or out of the dress  Roll Eyes

Thanks you appleshannon for the tutorial  Smiley
I gave it a try this week-end. I really like the way the skirt-part drapes. Here is the result :

My version is slightly different from the original :
- the top part joins (no space between my breasts)
- the skirt part in longer
- I had to open it in the back in order to get in and out  Undecided

I may make this again in a better fabric ! Tongue
