Let's look at RTW inspiration

Fabric Time


  1. Wear fashionable cloth is one of my passion. You allot fantastic pattern of all outfits. This post is very helpful to me.

  2. I made the Vogue 8670 last week, I found that the view in the green really isn't a turtle neck, but a cowl neck. I used a jersey knit per the fabric suggestions, and have a baggy, saggy neck on it. I believe the neck would need to be altered (reduced) to a smaller circumference to fit around the neck as a turtleneck. Other than that though the pattern fit great for me, love the rest of the fit.

  3. That is a cute top in KS3843 that I haven't seen before.
    Great fabric choices, too.

  4. I'm enjoying the sewalong post. I love seeing the selection of patterns and your inspiration

  5. Nice!!! Looking forward to this
