Wherein I recap what I’ve caught up on – which isn’t all that much. The interwebz are publishing faster than I can catch up! So, this week I’ll be limiting it to the sewing set.
Liberty Satin Drape Blouse from Sosewlovely
I’ve always loved cowl-neck blouses – this one is lovely and I love the color!
2012 Recap | Tutorials, Tips and Tricks from Grainline
She has some great stuff in this recap. I’m setting aside the french seaming tutorial for a Sorbetto that I’ll be making soon out of chiffon. The lady cutting my fabric at JoAnn’s asked if I had a serger for the edges, then seemed surprised when I told her my french seam plan.

She suggests shoe boxes. I have lidded boxes from Ikea that I use for works in progress. It’s a great idea that I should do again! (Perhaps that would also remind me of the projects I have lined up + the fabric I was going to use for them. Which would make me feel better about my fabric stash?)
She presents two methods, one of which was the life-altering idea I saw in BurdaStyle’s book using waxed tracing paper.
I’ve been teaching friends how to sew here and there. This is a great refresher on what information you can glean from a pattern envelope and its innards.
I just saw a brand of these advertised – The Lutterloh System. It’s an interesting idea. Has anyone out there used it? Sounds like she has a couple of patterns like this for download in her shop too.
Good information for those who switch between pattern companies. (Don’t we all?)
Another sweater I am in love with – maybe this one more so. (Source: ravelry.com via Sarah on Pinterest)
Surely I have a article of clothing or two that could benefit from overdyeing. Hmmm…
I have a dozen t-shirts that look like this if I have one. I really need to try this! *You* need to try this…
