Yes, here is an extremely useful tool for your sewing space. I copied Christelle’s very clever make: as soon as she published this, I thought I had to do it. As usual it took me months to finally do it – I largerly prefer sewing garments – and I waited another couple of months to […]
For Christmas, I treated myself to a Craftsy course on bra sewing with Beverly Johnson; I’ve started watching the videos and I’m very happy so far, it’s really interesting. I’m hoping to start as soon as I can gather appropriate materials. Do you know good online shops in Europe for underwear fabrics and notions? In […]
pattern: Robson Coat, Sewaholic Patterns fabric: Cotton gabardine, Cousette size : 14, sleeves and body shortened When this pattern came out last year, I was really enthusiastic about it and wanted to make it rapidly, but I was also already 7 months pregnant.

Because what makes me happy […]
Silly question probably but say you start a sewing project with lightweight fabric and use size 70 needles for example, do you have to change your needle size up when you deal with multiple layers as for a waistband for example?
Have you heard about Natalie Chanin’s work? The designer behind Alabama Chanin? I’m sure you’ve already seen some of her (and her employee’s) beautiful work and mostly the stunning versions made by talented ladies like Carolyn, Andrea and Isabelle? I bought one of her books last year – Alabama Studio Sewing + Design – and […]
The Robson Coat is a pattern I saw popping up last spring did not have time nor energy to sew up. Then autumn and winter came and I thought it was too late to make it. But now it’s time! My plan for 2014 is to make a garment a month, I know it’s not […]
