I made another shift green dress for myself with eyelet detailing and a ruffle bottom. It’s my new work/church dress. I love the texture of the fabric, so relaxing and hairy. I like to wear short shift dresses; I buy them a lot, they scream freedom of movement to me. They are extra comfi, airy and trendy in summer.
The good part is that I can make as much as I want. I have save lots of shift dresses designs, especially the ones with ruffles. I will make more complicated one for myself.
Today, we are going to learn how to sew a shift A-line dress. (more…)

As promised, I will be starting my sewing tutorials with an illustration before the main sewing. Nothing technical or complex, I will make it easy and straight forward as I can.
The whole shift dress idea was from a beautiful sewing and fabric blog visitor, she knows how to sew, but find it difficult drafting a pattern that will fit her body.
Happy new month people! I’m blogging from my phone again; it’s easier and I can do it anywhere. As from my next post, I will give a brief illustration on how I create my patterns I.e after the sewing tutorial of that particular design. I want to make it easy for people to be able to draft the pattern.

Yay! My first post; I have a few contents to post, but I want to start with this as my first post, Reason…, I didn’t know the proper way to take my body measurement when I started making my clothes. So, I did a lot of adjustment on my clothes for them to fit me properly. My diagrams are a little bit unprofessional, but you know what? I’m learning, so learn how to take your body measurement with me.
