  1. I found you via Pinterest, and so happy I did. I’ve been trying to move beyond commercial patterns for awhile. You have given me so many lessons in just one post. I look forward to more in the future. Thank you so very much!

  2. What a lovely website. I really like reading your posts and look at the pictures of the beautiful garments you make.

  3. Thank you so much for your patterns. This afternoon my mother is taking me to the shop to buy me a sewing machine. Since I was 7 and I used to sew with my grandma I haven’t touched one. The first thing that I hope to come out it will be the sleeveless 1950’s style dress with full box pleated skirt. Thank you so much.

    1. How exciting that you start to sew again! 😀 I wish you all the best with it and if you need any help with one of my patterns just email me.

  4. Good morning! I’m so happy I’ve stumbled upon your site! I was looking to try your LBD pattern. Do you have any suggestions on how to resize the pattern? I’m petite, bust 32in, waist 26in and hips 34in.

    1. Probably the best way to resize down is to have a look at the Threads basic grading guide I have a link for on the right under Pattern Making and instead of spreading out to make bigger move the pieces in.
      In the sewing instruction pdf I have written measurements of both the pattern and the body size I think it fits best. Compare your own measurements against those and make some vertical and horizontal tucks in the pattern as needed. For example you’ll probably need to horizontally shorten the upper bodice at armhole level and maybe also the skirt at mid hip level (I’m going by how I make things fit my 5’2″ daughter) If you then make small vertical pleats (¼”) though the shoulder carrying on straight down through the skirt the pattern should be much closer to your size. More could be fitted out through the side seams when it is in fabric. For a small cup size shave off some of the curve at the bottom of the bust area where it gathers.
      I strongly recommend after doing some basic alterations on the pattern that you make a muslin to check if you need to do any more before cutting out in nice fabric!

  5. Some really lovely and long forgotten patterns here whilst still being totally modern too – thank you for some great ideas I will be back again and again

  6. I’ve looked everywhere for tap pants or a pattern to make them, and here I find 3 lovely patterns….My daughter loves to wear skirts and dresses, but slips are hard to find and no good for modesty on stairs or in the wind 😉

  7. hello I’m french and I’m going to try the bias slipper pattern. Thanks very much for the easiness of explainations. Best regards from Paris !

  8. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I love A sleeveless 1950’s style dress with full box pleated skirt and The Little Bias Dress. I’m honna make it for sure!

    1. 🙂 Please show me what you make Agata and just send a message if you have any questions about the patterns! Hope they work well for you.

If you enjoyed this post make my day & let me know!
