Heya.. First of all.. Dont be surprised to see a post about a summer top in a winter month. This was made long long ago but coming up on blog now. Its time I checked off my backlog. Well it is not a backlog of finishing unfinished garment lying in my sewing room, but blogging about those which I am using already and they have not yet claimed their presence in cyberspace on my small blog:D . Today I am writing about a super cool top I made. The fun part if the crossover neckline pleat. it i a very creative design and I made it from the My Image magazine.

Hello readers :) Before I start writing the details of the dress I made from Stylish dress book. I have a few thoughts lingering on my mind which I just want to share. To skip these not-relevant thoughts and read about the dress jump to next paragraph. Let me start off. I have started to realize that maintaining a blog is not easy. My blog is far much simpler to look and no advertisements etc etc. But still each time I make something I have to plan how I will take pictures(good ones so that you can see details clearly). I have to plan the content of how my post is going to help you by reading it. I have to edit the pictures crop them so that it loads quickly for easy viewing. And I have to upload link of my latest post on my other pages. Phew! Well for a hobby this is quite tiring. But still I continue to do it out of joy :) And I am glad you are reading and following it. Thanks a lot :) Now back to the dress. ...(Click below to read more)

There is a new book published just last month devoting to the most popular garment in the 'She' community (also for those who sew). It is the Stylish Skirts book by Tuttle Publishing. There are a lot of points which make this a unique book which I am going to review now. I made a skirt from this book(which I have fallen in love with).As promised in my previous post, I share my personal opinion and experience of using this book and details of what the book offers here in this post:) (so continue reading...)

There is a leopard printed bag now in my room!! I made it (tap dance;)). I feel any dressmaker will feel the urge to make a bag or two sooner or later. I made a clutch a couple of weeks ago. It was so lovely that I wanted to make a handbag too:) Read all about the pattern I used and my experience making the bag.

I made a casual dress with a drawstring at the waist and pockets(my favorite). So whats the big deal right? Well the point here is this is a pattern hack. I drafted this pattern from a simple kimono tee by Maria Denmark patterns. It actually is not very different from the original. Just a few extensions and I got a new dress.(Click the link below to read more).

The moment I decided to use chiffon for this tank(Polly top by BHL) top, I knew it is not going to be easy. As I had to treat two layers as one for getting the depth of color. Phew!! Pinning and Patience were the key elements to complete this top:D. Finally its done and here it is.I have a lot of useful tips also to share when it comes to sewing with chiffon(Click on link below to read full post).
