Thanks for your thorough review.

Deepika, I think it is time to move your skills level to at least intermediate. Beautiful job on all of the above!

I think you did a fantastic job! Most impressed by the fit! Looks just like RTW! Great Job!

Deepika, it's amazing that you have only been sewing for such a short time - I am so impressed with the techniques you are using already to customize patterns, usually comes with years of sewing. I've sewn for years, but certainly don't have your confidence to adapt patterns. You are inspiring, as is this website!

Thanks again everyone! Rennie To add a Flounce I started with the 3/4th long version sleeves. Then I took out another pattern which had flounce sleeves and measured the inner circle. Modified it so that it will match the sleeve circumference and adjusted the flounce flare accordingly. Now that I thinkj of it, I think the flounce should have been more flared. But this was very easy to do. Georgene suggested that if you dont have a pattern already, you can use a plate to draw your own. Its very easy too!

How inspiring. Two very different looks (super casual to formal) from the same pattern. How do you add a flounce on the sleeve? Is it a separate piece sewn on?

Deepika, I ordered that green and the stripe (along with a whole bunch of other stripes and polka dots) from, and made a coordinated wardrobe of tops and shorts for my daughter this summer. I loved seeing her in those bright, fun colors every day, but couldn't quite figure out how I might wear them...your pajamas are a perfect solution. Very cute. THe black lace cardigan is lovely, too--could be very versatile for evening dress-up. How about black faux-suede pants and a black tank, or a black slinky dress underneath?

Deepika, I love the colors! Coordinating prints and solids give a great RTW look - only better because it fits well.

*Really Cute* pjs, and you use of var. thread is a GREAT design idea!

Irina, yes I used the same black stretch lace for the binding. This is the first time I've tried binding this cardigan and I love it! It gives such a neat finish and is very easy. It sort of stabilizes the front slanting edges. Thank you everyone for such nice comments. This encourages me to be 'brave' and try new things. Georgene the shell of this top is again a problem area with armhole gaping. Can I get that one too for the PR Weekend? And I can't believe that I need to do forward shoulder adjustment on the cardigan!

Both incarnations are very striking! I really love that black cardigan -- did you use the stretch lace for the front edge binding or something else? All the great reviews of this pattern finally inspired me to buy it.

Deepika, your cardigan is beautiful, and I think that your PJ's are very cute. Great entries for the contest.

I like the lace cardigan! I think it would look great over something black.

Actually Georgene that's why I left the buttons out in this one because I want to find something unique in NYC :)
Georgene said... (10/17/03 9:30 PM) Reply
Deepika, I really like your new lace cardigan. How about a single button, really a "statement" button. Like a faceted jet button, or cut crystal, or enamel, something that brings it together at the front and is like a jewel. I like the red of your dress glowing thru underneath.

I use clear elastic in the seams of unstable knits and it works great and things keep their shape. It's perfect in armholes where they want to stretch out of shape and keeps the armhole curve cupping your body. I use stay tape for shoulder seams on knits or any unstable fabric to keep that seam from growing or just adding extra support. It is a white nylon that you can sew or serge while you are making the seam and adds no bulk. I highly recommend this. I just bought this pattern after hearing everyone talk about it and one of my customers came in with it on in fabric from the shop and it looked wonderful. I think she wrote a review on this pattern as well. I think this will be one of the staples in my closet and I'm getting ready to go into production since I deperately need some new clothes. I've been busy with the making of quilting sample and need to play in the clothing field.

That's a nice twinset! Everytime I see these twinsets reviewed, I want to get started on one... so many ideas, so little time! Thanks for the reminder to think ahead before starting... I'm so often in a rush to make something for myself or my family that I forget to think "DETAILS."
