Today I’ll show you how to tie a nice bow on the Musubu dress (or any other dress with a bow). Tying a bow when you’re looking at it from above can take some attempts to get it right. Follow the steps below and you”ll get it right the first time!
Spring is here and so is our new Spring/Summer collection! I have three new patterns for you: a swimsuit/bikini, and oversized T-shirt and a lined purse. From now on, we will release a small collection of patterns twice a year, one in Spring and one in Autumn. Let me tell you more about these patterns!…
If you’re about to make the Amber Trousers, you probably have an idea in mind of what style you’re going for. Should they be casual or formal, easy summer pants or chique evening wear, do you want them to hold their shape or drape around your legs? Whichever it will be, the outcome will be determined by which view you choose and which fabric. In this post I’ll give you some good resources to find the right fabric and discuss which fabrics are most suitable for which looks.
Sewing the Onyx cuffs is not the most difficult step technically, but the construction method might be new to you. The cuffs are designed as separate pattern pieces to get a better fit with the sleeves. You know those T-shirts with rolled up cuffs that stand at a different angle than the sleeves? Those ‘wings’ are a pet peeve of mine, and it’s what you get when you roll up a tapered sleeve. The Onyx cuffs have a zig zag edge and thus fit their sleeve perfectly. To better understand the sewing process, we’ve made this tutorial. We’ll follow Step 5 of the Onyx instructions.
Autumn is well underway and it’s high time to introduce you to our new Fall/Winter pattern collection! We have a completely new design, a re-release from the Tuesday Stitches collection and an updated best seller. All patterns go up to a 64″ hip. Let’s start with the Coral Sweater & Dress!

If you were looking for the perfect pair of summer pants, you’ve found them! Our newest pattern, the Amber Trousers will keep you cool and stylish this season. The goal was to create a pair of summer pants that flow and are quick to sew, but without an elastic waistband. Because let’s face it, however comfortable, those aren’t flattering on anyone. Especially if you’re a wide-hipped or curvy-tummied girl, you’ll know what I mean. The Amber Trousers have a fitted yoke on the front and back, to keep that waist-to-hip area smooth. The V-shape of the yokes lend a beautiful feminine touch. Below that, the pant legs flow out with an inverted box pleat to give your legs room to breathe. I’ve worn these pants to death last summer, and I hope you’ll like them just as much as I do. Read on for more details on the pattern and a sale!
The hood on the Jasper is big. This is an intentional design feature and it makes the hood different than standard sweatshirt hoods. It is not meant to envelop your head, but to rest on it lightly, not pulled all the way to the front. For those who would like the hood to be less big, today I’m showing how to make the hood smaller. We’ll make it more narrow at the sides, and make it sit more towards the back.
