I used to read palms for a living so my hubby bought this T-shirt for me at a comics convention. It was supposed to be a mens' large, but it was kind of small to begin with, and shrank the... Continue reading

I started this carpet bag 4 years ago, but, like many of my projects, put it aside when I came to a step I wanted to do differently from the instructions. As part of my pledge I promised I would... Continue reading

P.S. Just visited your blog. So inspiring. I'm also trying to grow old disgracefully - in a town where that is decidedly frowned upon, which makes it even more delicious for me. Thanks for leading the charge!

They look very good on you. I especially like the cut of the pocket.

Hi! The pattern is Vogue 2980 which is out of print. I don't know how easy it is to get from eBay or Etsy or the like. Besides the sleeves, there are 3 pieces - a front, a back and the collar/bolero piece. I've put a picture of what the pattern pieces look like on my Flickr site here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/patternologie/5010187067/ Piece # 3 is the front with a wide facing that folds down and forms a sort of self-lining. Piece 1 is one half of the collar. It has a center back seam (on the right). It folds in half lengthwise and has three tucks on each end. It attaches at the center to the back (piece 2), and then the rest folds around the front to make the upper part of the front armholes. The tucked part of the collar attaches to the front at the side seam. I hope that isn't too confusing.

I have so many unfinished projects, I'm trying hard not to create new ones. So even though the weather is now decidedly autumn-like, I decided to finish this T-shirt before jumping into my fall sewing. It's Vogue 2980. I'm pretty... Continue reading

Over the weekend I finished this pair of rayon challis zouave pants. These pants are sometimes called harem pants or hammer pants, after the singer MC. Hammer, who became known for wearing them in a music video. A lot of... Continue reading

Wow! Thanks for that info, Irene. I suspected from the beautiful hand that it was something special. Now I know.

Fantastic coat! I would not have been able to cut it up either.

I got this sweater years ago at Goodwill for $6.99. I found it in the women's section, but I think it's actually a man's sweater. The sleeves are very, very long and I have to roll them up. The label... Continue reading

This looks great! I'm a big fan of dyeing things to make them more like what I want. I think the contrast thread is perfect.
