I cut my fabric for my dress. I don’t know what I was thinking but Instead of lengthening with the pattern I made it too short. I have some fabric left over so I’m wondering what would be the best way now to add some length so my bum doesn’t hang out.


My husband picked this up for me at a garage sell for $20. I’ve never seen a base like this or one thats only a torso. Is this a vintage form? Can anyone give me any kind of info on it?

I scored this awesome pattern on ebay for $4.50

It’s so freaking cute i plan on doing the C version. Has anyone else used this pattern? I’d like to see some finished or in progress projects. Also I bought this in a 13 and I need to adjust it to a 14, can anyone give me some advice on that?


Patterns for lingerie?

I’ve seen different patterns for lingerie but nothing that I’m looking for. Heres an idea. Its an all in one girdle i think. I’m trying to find similar patterns (whether it be bras, girdles…etc) But if you have one for an all in one then thats the best. Can you help me out?
