Sewing Secrets

hanging.out

Did you know that the Roundabout Dress & Slip pattern has a slip? You'd think it should be obvious from the title of the pattern, but so many people are like Oh there's a slip pattern too! Yes there is. And an option to make it a camisole too. Bias cut, both of them for a sweet fit. (Not to mention a blouse option for the dress. I know, its very generous of me.) And if you are super crafty you can add a panel of fabric around the bottom of the slip for this lovely number. Instant summer happiness. My favorite new go-to-gorgeous dress. And by far the most talked about piece of clothing in my Quilt Market booth a few weeks ago. It's always the thing that you did last minute and took you 1 hour, no? Today we launched a new Pattern Pack section in the store, and we'll be adding to it over the coming weeks to give you some more varieties.

And that is the mailing list news that I spoke of yesterday, just too pretty of a photo not to share here too. This is how you hang all your clothes at home, right? Right.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  1. ... i will have to remember to come back and get this after I have the baby.... def. not the look I want to squeeze into right now.
    Thank you so very much for your sweet blog comments on the mariposa dress I made. It seriously made my day. I can't wait to cut some more fabric and make another one.

  2. Oh.....it has a slip?

    LOL.

    Well, I'm guilty of not noticing. I looked at the pattern pic and thought I couldn't pull off that dress, but the slip/cami? Heck yeah. I'm all over that! I have the hardest time finding either due to my, ahem, girls... so hopefully I can use the pattern and maybe customize it if I have to! Thanks

  3. Love the slip, Marie, but the dress would not work for me. Any chance you would offer the slip as a separate pattern? Thanks.

  4. I just adore everything you do. Baby number four is 5 months old and I can just now remember my own name. I am inspired by all you create while being a mother at the same time!

  10. I love slips made out of satin charmeuse, a fabric I mention in my new iPhone app, ✄ Fabric U ✄. Actually this fabric is substantial enough that the slip itself could be worn as a dress.

  11. I have a breathtaking piece of vintage fabric that I salvaged from curtains bought from an estate sale. I knew I wanted to make a dress or skirt, but I'm so excited to make the Roundabout Dress from it. I can't wait to start this week.

    And now the reason for my comment, I LOVE those floral paintings in the background of this picture. I collect old oil floral paintings. Did you paint these or are they your collection.

    Thanks!

  18. I know, Anna Maria, that with all you have going on in your life you have very little time , if any, left over. My current posting might interest you as it has to do with fabrics, some which you created. The designs you create are so beautiful I can't even bear to throw away the clippings. Hope you get a chance to see it. I remain always in awe of your work and your talents, Carolina
