Design - giving yourself PERMISSION to change your mind!

I was designing a new, simple jacket this last week and wanted to share a bit of that process.  No surprise - it is another jacket on a comfy sweatshirt base.  Whenever I clean out my closet, garments and accessories get 'evaluated' for re-purposing in creative ways.  That was exactly what happened with this square (33'') fringed scarf which I've had - FOREVER - but rarely worn. …

Making a Bride Happy

I would like to share what I did with a purchased bridal dress for a woman who was 3 feet tall.



 Not only is this woman the height of 3 feet she was born with a disability, she only has one arm with only one finger.  She came into the store I work for looking for a bridal dress.  The consultant that was helping her called me out to the floor to assist with the choice and also to see if I could do the alteration.  As it turned out she bought a dress that was one of the largest…

How do I start purchasing wholesale fabric?

I have been thinking of starting my own sewing business but retail fabric is getting expensive, even when it's on sale.  Can anyone point me in the right direction on where to start?   I found a post a few months ago on this issue but can seem to find it.

The final stage of the Modern She Made Flickr Swap is the receiving of lovely goodies in the mail.  Being (usually) an international participant generally means a longer wait.  And so you wait, hoping everyday that today is the day the postman has a package just for you.  And then - yippee - it arrives.  And it was sooooo worth the wait.…

My favourite Bag Patterns by Designers

Although I am happy to convert a pair of jeans or a skirt to a bag, the rest of the time I prefer to use a pattern.  In my search for the ‘ideal’ bag I have come across some very talented ladies from far and wide, and I want to introduce them to you.   I am going to start with a home grown talent here in the U.K.
