October 11, 2016 by MsJennyHomeMakerHello again, everyone! This month, I thought I’d share a more daily-wear item. Wool pencil skirts in various weights are a staple in my wardrobe, nearly year-round. Some of my favorites are made from double cloth or double serge wool, so when I spotted this cool pale blue wool double-cloth, I knew it would be perfect for a transitional skirt. When I received it, I saw it had an interesting texture, so I decided to pick a slightly more fun and casual pattern, forgoing my usual Simplicity 2154 for Simplicity 8175. And I’m so glad I did – the fabric paired beautifully and I have a new favorite skirt!
May 12, 2015 by Lilacs & LaceHello everyone, it’s Laura Mae from Lilacs & Lace here to share a tip using my favorite sewing notion . . . rayon seam binding! Hemming a garment is generally one of, if not the last, steps in the construction process - this means it is often rushed. But a bit of extra time and effort can make a huge difference to the quality of a garment. It really is all about the little details!

It is a hemming marathon! Georgene, Mary, and Els are the Sewing Divas; they have made this fabulous tutorial on how to make a simple hand slip stitch. There is even mention of how to hem lined garments, where the lining is attached to the garment fabric. An invisible, finely stitched hem is the cat’s meow when it comes to couture detailing, therefore is a skill that we would all profit from learning.
