Happy, happy sharing!

Isn’t this shirt very pretty? The lovely Taeco from Love Sewing drafted this pattern herself. I was blog prowling, stopped by her blog to read her new posts, admire the shirt for her husband, and  to stare at the pretty t-shirt more, checked the comments section and lo and behold! She replied to my comment/request on her post and she is going to share the pattern with me. Yey! (I can’t wait, too excited!) Thank you, Taeco! Blog prowling is indeed beneficial!

Now what fabric from my stash (not hoard, husband!) am I going to use?? After I’ve finished hemming my last skirt and sewing on the hook and bar closures, I’m off to Chinatown for some fabric prowling! Heehee!!

UPDATE: I received the PDF pattern from Taeco via e-mail and I’ve already printed them out. I’ll just have to figure out how to enlarge them a bit to fit me, squeeze in the time to make it, and enjoy it with jeans. Thanks again, Taeco!!


What have I been up to? Oh the skirts…

I’ve been so busy with making skirts I forgot to post anything here.

I self-drafted a skirt pattern to knock off this baby here (from Old Navy) and I am now in zipper installing mode. All in all I have made four skirts already, three with front flies and one with an invisible zip. More details later though, but now I leave you with this snazzy video from Fashioning tech and a couple of links on how to install our favorite but mostly feared zip closure – the invisible zipper!!
