Hi Nan! Yes, you could face the neckline and you could still use bias in other places. A nice, fine wale corduroy with drape would be lovely! I'm not sure about a faux suede or a denim - they might not have enough drape. I would recommend giving it a go in a recommended fabric and then seeing what other fabrics you think could work. Hope that helps! Erin

I think I liked The Rocks more, but The Vacationers would be good for the beach.

Stopping by quickly to let you know that I restocked my little shop with scrap bags. Again, I have sorted them by size - Large bags have medium to large scraps that will be great to cut up and use... Continue reading

Thanks! I've read a lot of her books. I'll have to see what's left. They are such fun reads!

Summer. So lovely and bright, but so hard to get a hold of, if that makes any sense. Fatty and I went to Switzerland! It was amazing - full of good food, good people, amazing scenery. It was a fast... Continue reading

Fatty is a cyclist and loves the cookbook Feed Zone Portables. There are many good recipes in there, much can be made ahead and frozen, all are meant to be able to grab and go. I think it would be great for growing, athletic kids as the nutrition is balanced and sound.

I've had my eyes on this dress by Tif, aka Dottie Angel, ever since she announced that it would be available as a pattern. It's just so dang cute! And truly, everything that lady puts her hands to is adorable,... Continue reading

In an effort to get something finished this week, I sat down at the machine and sewed the binding to this quilt. The pattern is Fox Tails by Tula Pink and I bought it as a kit last year on... Continue reading

The girls left for camp almost three weeks ago and come home on Saturday. Naturally, I've spent most of the week focused on completing my long list of things that I thought I would accomplish while they were gone. I... Continue reading

Remember my first mini quilt? The one that I made to be given away and then decided to keep? I made its replacement and sent it off to my swap partner last week. Feathers! I used Anna Maria's pattern to... Continue reading

I found my first two four-leafed clovers on Sunday morning while walking the dog. I am always on the lookout for them, but had never been lucky in the past. Minutes before, I had decided to stop looking. And then... Continue reading

1. I did not know Graeter's had pretzel cones. Must investigate. 2. Quilt! (I can help if you need it, which I doubt you do.) 3. All the Light We Cannot See - my very favorite tome of the last year. I read it and then listened to it on audiobook - highly recommend the latter. 4. I chuckled at the "very Purl Soho" line. So true. And so happy making. 5. Snickerdoodles! Jane is already out of school. I'm putting her on cookie detail today.

Hi Michele - I didn't line it, but it could use it. I just choose to wear a slip.

The pattern has side panels! The only tricky part was lining up the pockets with the panels, but the stripes made that pretty easy!

This skirt was supposed to be sewn Mother's Day weekend. I had the fabric washed and the pattern picked out, but it just didn't happen. I honestly forgot how busy May can be. I thought if I could get to... Continue reading
