I really like the Esme top by Sew Liberated, has anybody made it up?

Fun with Fabric / Fabric suggestion for trousers
« on: September 05, 2019, 10:50:17 AM »
I want to make up my fave TnT trousers in a black drapey fabric.

The pattern is Sew Me Something Portia which I've made in various linen/cotton mix, lightweight cotton, heavy cotton and I'd like to try something like a viscose mix for a 'softer' look, if you get what I mean  :S

I think polyester would be tricky to work with and probably wouldn't hang right. What do you suggest?

Thanks  :)

In the wardrobe / Baby jumpsuit

I made a jumpsuit approx age 6 months for my hairdressers' brand new baby boy. I think the fabric is so darned cute, a lucky find in my local haby shop.

Fun with Fabric / Pre-washing

Are you ready for my latest  :o question?

When pre-washing new fabric, not got any  :devil: do you do this on it's own or bung it in with a laundry load? Does it matter?

Has anyone got a favourite online supplier of fat quarter's? I don't want polycotton but good quality cotton.

I like the look of Higgs & Higgs selection, but haven't found much more within the websites I know about

Your Favourite Suppliers / Buttons
« on: August 07, 2019, 16:50:16 PM »
Bought some buttons on fleabay from Mrs Arthur's Button Shop. Looked at the website direct and they're really cheap and very colourful. Only thing I will say is that they're very lightweight so might not appeal to everybody.

Your Favourite Suppliers / Kam Snaps
« on: July 10, 2019, 11:11:45 AM »
Has anyone used Kam Snaps? They've probably got other names too, they're the plastic press stud type thingies used a lot on babygrows and the like.

Can anyone recommend a good supplier/brand?

Patterns Discussion / Oooooo bitch!

Just received my weekly email from TATB where they're promoting their new pattern release with a photo of Tilly wearing the dress they've made from it. Well, I don't think I've ever seen such an ill-fitting dress as a promo ever  :S

It won't encourage me to purchase any of their patterns, has anybody used them with good results?

Sewing Spaces and Furniture / Sewing chair
« on: May 25, 2019, 18:45:43 PM »
OH is feeling flush - and generous  :o - on the back of his redundancy payout and has offered to treat me to a li'l something for my sewing sanctuary. Having had a good ol think I've decided I could do with a decent chair, at the mo I'm sitting on a wooden dining chair with no cushioning, it's a devil on the buttocks after a long shift.

So, of course, I need guidance.....What do you use?

The OH's sis-in-law has some ancient curtains in the front room that she loves but they're tatty and faded. She would like to replace them with something similar but has been unsuccessful in finding any.
Has anyone seen any curtains/fabric like them. They're a cream background with blue and brown butterfly flower combo pattern.
