Let me preface this by saying that this is my first post to date! I’ve been sewing for a couple of years and this was actually the first dress I ever sewed. When I got engaged, I jokingly considered “just making my own dress” as a way to ease the financial burden that a wedding [...]
I recently completed the Va-Voom Vintage bullet bra sew-along! This was my first sew along and I loved it. A bra was a great thing to start off with and Brittany’s pattern and instructions were great. I was really inspired by her collection of vintage bullet bras as well. I added some faggoting stitch, a [...]

The original fit was too loose for me so I took the side seams in and reduced the width across the shoulders for my version. I used [...]
I sewed for my daughter view 3 of Simplicity 3413, as I don’t have the pattern , I tryed to do it similar, also I did not have enough fabric that’s why the skirt looks like that, but next time I’ll buy enough fabric to do it correctly.
