We all have those settings on our sewing machine.. but some of us are just afraid to go there. Today I am going to walk you through applying button holes with your machine as well as how to mark the button placement on your Krissa Crop.
Bias binding is such a quick and satisfying way to clean finish neck and arm openings in garment sewing. For the Krissa Crop I use 1/4″ double fold bias tape.
Today I am sharing my technique for marking & sewing darts in garment sewing. This is a technique I learned while working in the fashion & garment industry in NYC that I find to be quite efficient and easy.
Hi friends! I am so excited to spend this week walking you through making your Krissa Crop using my FREE (to subscribers) pdf pattern! In past sewalongs I’ve really broken down the planning & construction step-by-step using photos and video. Since the Krissa Crop is a free pattern and fairly straightforward, I just wanted to spend this sewalong breaking down some of the trickier techniques for all my more beginner sewists out there!
My amazing testers let me drag them through a super fast testing process for the Krissa Crop and were such great sports about it! For that reason, not everyone got to whip up & photograph fully finished versions of their tops. I do have a few rock star testers here that were able to do so and I cant wait to show you what they’ve made!
This project has been finished for so long I am so happy to finally be posting it. Its not news that I love the Ogden Cami by True Bias, but this one is special because it is a super fun refashion that turned a dress I never wore into a tank that gets lots of wear time!
I’ve really had my eye on all those trendy vintage-inspired button-front dresses that have been popping up from so many great RTW brands I admire (hello Reformation & Christy Dawn). When Fibers to Fabrics contacted me about a collaboration, I immediately knew that was the look I wanted to go for.
Wow it feels like forever since I posted about something I’ve made that wasn’t related to a pattern or a challenge! This post is LONG overdue as Maddie of Madalynne Intimates sent me on of her bra kits AGES ago for her free pattern the Barrett Bralette. Major apologies to her that I’m just now getting around to posting about it.
Its our last and final day of the Roksi sewalong and I’m so sad to see you go.
