Art Journal Page

March 10th, 2016 at 10:24 pm » Comments Off

I started my art journal page with a collage of ephemera from the holiday season of 2015. The inspiration for this page was the Color Me Positive prompt “gratitude”. I very much enjoy the holiday season. Not only is it a time when I get time off of work (grateful for work holiday), I take [...]

A tish of sewing

December 26th, 2014 at 8:25 pm » Comments Off

Hey, look, I made something! Long, long ago, I made my first t-shirt from Kwik Sew 2565. It was okay. I had to do a full bust alteration and add 3 inches to each side of the bust. That was a huge dart. Oh, and the sleeves were too small, and the back got hung [...]

Kwik Sew 2565 recap

March 7th, 2012 at 8:57 pm » Comments Off

T-shirts are really easy to sew. However, just like any top, a t-shirt must be fitted if it is going to flatter a very buxom woman like me. I started with Kwik Sew 2565, now out of print, and a tie-dye burnout panne from Joann’s. That fabric was all the rage in the early 00′s. [...]

Aw, they are cute when they hug like that.

And it’s a good thing they are cute because they urinate while they are lying there, and you can barely breathe if you get close to them.

Bound buttonholes with Marla Kazell.

These pix are from a class I took with Marla last August at the ASG conference. I really liked learning how to do the bound buttonholes. Marla showing us what’s what. Dorothy was in the class with me. Can I remember her name? No, but she’s in our chapter. Marla’s samples, which proudly show her [...]

Burda Twist Top

February 23rd, 2007 at 8:47 pm » Comments Off

from Burda Original Pattern Piece I compared the original pattern piece to my TNT KS t-shirt, and I need 1.5 more inches to get CF to center front. My boob apex (aka bust point) just barely made it onto the pattern piece. I added “tissue” below the bust point so that I could have a [...]

Lastest T-shirt I finished and wore the latest KS2565 t-shirt. It came out smashing, if you ask me. I’m going to stick with the inch longer length. I started on Simplicity 6596. I’d really like to have some new shorts to go to New England, but I have to grade up the pattern, and we [...]
