  • Knockout Wool Dress Variations by Laura Mae

    February 24, 2014 by Lilacs & Lace

    000 Many patterns include multiple views that whet the creative appetite by showing one or two variations on a theme.  But there are so many more possibilities!  Add or substitute a piece from another existing pattern or draft your own, and things get even more interesting.

  • Green Wool Dress - Mashia

    April 9, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Mashia made this stunning fitted dress from an Italian wool and polyamide from Britex Fabric’s first floor. The dress is lined in red, picking up the tiny bright specks in the evergreen wool fabric. She self-drafted it from a dress that fit her particularly well (but usually works from Burda or Vogue patterns.) We love this sheath dresses ¾ length sleeves, glamorous fit, and the insolent way Mashia has accessorized it with a violet braided belt and rayon scarf.
