Jenny: a failed Webster dress from precious fabric

Beverly – My custom made jeans – all that is left is the front button, top stitching on waistband, belt loops, and hem.  

These are AMAZING.  They fit me perfectly – because they were made exclusively for me.  I learned so much and TOOK MY TIME! I spent an entire evening just doing the fly front and back pockets.  I was so careful and made design and construction choices based on what I thought was best for the garment and not based on the time or care it would take to do them.  

Great tutorial for fly front:

Trick for getting threads to the back for repairing or simply adding to a seam with no visible over stitching 

New patterns

Lesperlines Eastside pants

The Eastside pants have entered the chat! The newest crew member is a carpenter style pants, with a high-waist and loose fit through the hips and leg. The pattern features all the patch pockets you could dream of (6, to be exact), a classic hammer loop and a zipper fly. This pattern is perfect for the sewist with a love for details!

Forest and Thread Good Tiemes Tee

Featuring a unique front and back yoke that creates a well-placed horizontal seam line above the chest, this pattern is made for fun fabric and color combinations! The high and snug mockneck balances the wide and loose boxy fit of the body in perfect harmony. With the tunnel and ties option across the shoulder seams and back neckline, the ruched detailing can be pulled super tight or left to lay flat depending on your styling mood. Regardless of how you choose to wear yours, this tee is meant for having a good tieme!
