Typewriter A-Line Skirt – Sue

Sue made this groovy a-line skirt from Japanese linen/cotton fabric, and a self-drafted pattern. She is a student at Sew-It-All, and credits them with keeping her on track. She sews about half of her wardrobe, so it must be working! We love the fabric’s literary typewriter design and its soothing color combination of muted chartreuse and aqua….and how Sue accessorized her skirt with beatnik black tights, boots, cardigan, and knit top – so chic and playful!

Make a Shower Curtain to Jazz Your Nest!

It is springtime; time to air out your wintery home, scrub, repaint, and gussy up your cozy nest! We love spending hours in the tub soaking in a hot scented bubble-bath, snoozing, and relaxing…..a snazzy easy-to-sew shower curtain (tutorial courtesy of Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous) is great for a fast ‘n chic salle de bain rejuvenation. We like to skip those pesky grommets and sew button-holes instead, and we particularly adore this Japanese-linen retro print (This fabric is available on the 2nd floor of Britex Fabrics! 415-392-2910)
