Linda Skirt

When I got the fabric for my bombshell bodice, I also picked up some fabric to make a skirt.  It was an amazing novelty sewing print by Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa.  I have to say, I am absolutely in love with the feel of this Japanese fabric. I decided to download the Linda Skirt pattern Read More …

Closure

I’ve been working on the fit of my Bombshell Bodice for a couple of weeks now (along with a few other projects of course).  I’ve got the fit almost perfect, so I figured it was time to find my zipper.  Lucky me, since I’m making a top instead of a dress, I need a separating Read More …
