After The Dress is one of the first blogs I discovered. We share the same name, and an unusual one. This is a big textbook-technical. It has tests at the end of the chapters. TESTS!!! A very detailed book, and one that even if you don't want to draft an entire pattern, it's great to have if you need to know how to draft a particular type of collar, or sleeve. Thank you so much, Gwen. (I feel like I'm talking to myself in first person)!
The other Gwen wishes that every one of you could have won. So do I. But not enough to give you my book! As Angie puts it, "Neener, neener"!!
I was happy to sew something that wasn't vinyl, after the experience with that stupid rain poncho! It was a failed experiment, but all it cost me was a few dollars and a couple of hours. Since that fiasco, I cut a bunch of knits, sewed them into Ts to get me through the rest of the summer.
became this cardi, which is my JAM #5. Boy, am I behind!
And I bought these patterns at the last Butterick pattern sale at Jos.
I love the cuteness of this jacket by SewSerendipity.
It is out of print, and being re-drafted, and re-issued. Not difficult to figure out,though. It is pleated at bottom and sleeve hems. I think I have just the right coordinating fabrics to make it.
