Sewing News

Aside from sewing bags, totes, curtains, pillows, prom dresses and making alterations, I do have a limited ability to sew actual clothing for myself.  I put this to the test recently in making a couple of garments.  I had not sewn a garment for myself in years (10+), so I chose a simple pattern by McCall.  First, I made a summer knit top, then I used the same pattern to make a heavier, winter knit top.  I found that purchasing fabric online was really easy and cheaper than purchasing in the store.  Fabric.com has a great variety of fabrics.  I shop clearance, of course!
