This is a wardrobe pattern--pants, skirt, two tops. Sandra Betzina recommends the pattern as a travel wardrobe if the four pieces coordinate. I have good luck with Today's Fit patterns: my middle-aged body seems to be the body-type these patterns are designed for. I have made only the skirt s... more...

About Me

Since we've moved into a bigger loft, I no longer have to sew on the landing of a staircase, and I am loving having a bigger sewing space. I try to not let more than two days go by without sewing! more
