I am back with the second part of the Boylston Bra modification tutorial! Boylston Bra is one of my favorite patterns. It is such a pretty demi bra that gives me a nice rounded shape. It is also super versatile! I have made it into a foam cup bra, lace bra, fabric bra, and you can even make a bikini top out of it. If a pattern fits so well why not utilize it to it’s full potential, right? Keep reading “Boylston Bra with Elastic Upper Cup and no Fabric Strap Tutorial”
The folks over at Colette have posted an interesting question this week about finding time to sew in summer. This made me wonder. I love summer! I love warm weather and I love spending time outside, whether it is walking my dog or just sitting on the patio. Of course that takes away precious sewing time. However, I find my issue is not having difficulty finding time to sew, but rather it is finding time to photograph and write about it. I still sew, may be a little less than in winter, but I still do. I have a very strong suspicion that if I didn’t sew I would go slightly insane, would be difficult to be around and will likely lose all my few friends. I can not risk it. So I will find time for sewing. However, blogging and photographing things may suffer a bit… but I will try my best!
I am repeating myself, but I am pretty lazy and when I go through the pain of fitting a pattern to my body I will hack the hell out of it. If it fits, why not use it for different looks, right? So this time I hacked my Hampshire Trousers into cropped, skinnier, pleated pants and I am in love with the result!
Kennis from Itch to Stitch is seriously productive. That woman pumps out patterns like no tomorrow, yet they all are extremely well drafted and quite intricate. It blows my mind, how does she do it? Meanwhile I feel super accomplished if I manage to cook dinner two days in a row.
I can’t believe another month has passed already and Me Made May is over! By the way, we have been calling Me Made May “me-ma-may” in our household. Somehow, Me Made May is a mouthful and we figured as long as you make sounds that start with M really fast, it is all sounds the same.
