Episode 136: #pfBetterDoneThanPerfect recap

Catch Up


I’m on a tear with DIY Daisy’s sundress low waste pattern offered free on her website. It’s made to your measurements & I’ve finalized all my adjustments so it works for me the way I want it to. I’ve made about a dozen now, using linen, lawn, and high quality quilting cotton. I’m planning one with ruffles, and one in bark cloth coming soon.

I took a frame weaving class at Local Cloth in Asheville Nc. I love my result. I’m signed up to dip some fabric in the indigo vat as well this week. 

Beverly:  Altered a bunch of “men’s” tees – Three concert shirts, a shirt from our favorite local bookstore, and a festival shirt. My main way to do this is to cut off about 4-5 inches from the bottom, make the neckline wider and deeper, cut off half the sleeve, hem the bottom and the sleeve and use leftover fabric for new neckline.  Perfect new T shirt.

Work on Skirt skills! Altered my block and drew out two ideas for skirts – one is a narrow skirt with patch pockets, buttons up the front, flap opening in the back. The other is a lantern skirt.  

New Patterns:
