When making your own clothes,  you take what fabric you can get. A neighbor and friend gave me TONS of fabric she was clearing out, among which I found this blue knit.  The sleeves were supposed to be different–I can’t remember what—but I do remember that they didn’t turn out, and they became little bubble […]

I saw this tee in Real Simple over the summer, and I liked the sleeves. They were pretty and not really me. I drafted the pattern using the techniques I learned here. I have the original 198-something version, but the cool thing about fashion, is that it all comes ’round again. PS I knew that […]

These two shirts get featured together because they have one thing in common–I didn’t make them.  I simply embellished them. I drew my sweet sis-in-law for Christmas, and so I bought this tee, made the flowers, and then sewed them on (and don’t you know, I spent 5 X longer on this shirt I didn’t […]

When I first tried this on for my husband, he said “Wow. You made yourself a Puffy Shirt.” That is this shirt’s true and rightful name–I just put “Cascade Ruffle Front”  on the tutorial because it sounded more searchable.  Besides Seinfeld, I saw this shirt first at Jcrew, but have since seen it surface other places.  This took […]

My sister Em gifted me this awesome black knit for my birthday last year (I believe she found it at Wal-mart’s $1 fabrics).  Thanks Em!  I also had some gauzy black fabric from an old AE skirt that I was cutting up to make a dress for Twinkle. This is what the marriage of the two […]

Ready? This may be the world’s easiest tutorial. Knit can be hard to sew, and for many a project I wanted to know how I could just finish an edge simply. HOW DO YOU HEM KNIT?!?! Of course this is the simplest solution ever, but it was a revelation to me. 1 Fold it under. […]

Boring title. Fun shirt. The story on this shirt was that I’ve made approximately a ton of tee shirts, but never documented the process. So this one came out of necessity, but not because I needed a shirt. Because I needed a tutorial. I didn’t have enough of anything at home, so I had to […]

I always like me a good arm or waist band.  They’re are a great way to finish off the edges because it dresses up a shirt just enough to make it feel a little more classy. Arm and waist bands are done exactly the same.  For this tutorial I’ll try to explain both simultaneously. 1. […]
