I made a long skirt for this summer. I am not very fond of maxi aka long skirts.(All my skirts are short or midi length). But when I found this lovely chiffon fabric with awesome feather print, I simply grabbed it. When I saw it I realised that the only garment that looks good with such big print would be a skirt.
I love sheer fabric and I have made a lot of garments from it. I purchased a lot of yardage to make two skirts , one for me and one for my best buddy. I made sure her skirts reaches her(she lives in the States:P) , and she is super happy too. Hope she is reading this post now and will send me pics of herself wearing it LOL.

Its been a while since I posted anything on the blog. I am really glad to everyone of you who continued to follow this blog when it was silent. I did spend time on the net browsing and reading all the lovely posts that came in my feed, but did not gather excitement to post anything !! Today I want to share a dress I made that fits me so well that I am head over heels in love with it ( skip the print it may be looks too vintage, look for the fit lol).

|Long sleeved blouse pattern|
P.S:This post is going to have a lengthy rant about the fabric I chose then the nice part about the pattern. skip the rant and jump below to read about the pattern, if you wish.
Making this blouse was a SHEER DIFFICULTY. I mean it.. All along there were skipped stitches, zig-zag stitches magically turned themselves into straight stitches. I have made many from sheer fabrics. Not once did I stumble while sewing them. It was almost a breeze to make the cowl neck top and the collared blouse in sheer. For the Polly top it was a test of patience but not once was there any troubles with skipped stitches. I wonder what was it that was different this time with this sheer(or sheesh??) Georgette.

I love black, who doesn't. It makes such a lovely contrast for many prints and patterns.It is lovely used as such for a dress or top also. Well why am I talking about black when the top I am posting about today is not in black but is floral ?? Any guesses. That is because this post is all about the Basic Black book. Well the book has got a lot more in it than just black. so ready to read more about it.. Let us continue..

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...)
