My experiment in drafting pockets to add to my Reglisse dress. I'm hoping that anchoring that wider top to the waistband will help to make them actually functional for things like, say, holding my phone. In spite of the elastic gathering and the lighter fabric. #workinprogress#patternhack#sewing
New pillow cover...30 minutes of actual #sewing , 3 hours spent addressing technical difficulties + learning to make a buttonhole with the #401A before caving and turning to the modern Singer’s nifty buttonhole foot. I need a bh foot for the 401A! Buttons by @katrinkles_knitting_jewelry and I love them, but want the anchor or crab buttons for this particular fabric...
Nice to see that the #vintagevogue patterns are being highlighted on top of the cabinet, but enough with the number changes. As someone mentioned the last time I whined about this, it may have to do with tracking the sale of the designs on versus in the cabinets, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
I was very disappointed to see only one of each size for the new vintage repros until I saw there were a bunch more up top. At least the instructions give you the “right” number. But I wonder how many of these altered envelope numbers make it onto things like PatternReview? And the envelopes are made from the shiny paper - I prefer the old school matte finish, myself. I think a bit of #sewing is in order to get me out of my cranky-pants mood!

Trevor got to make a Sew Softie by Orb Factory. This kit came with woodland creatures including a bunny, fox and owl. This craft is a bit complicated and probably best for older kids around 8-11 in age. Really cute kit for basic sewing skills and learning to follow instructional diagrams 🐰✂️#buildabear#toyreview#orbfactory#sew#sewing#craftkit#trevorsthoughts
