My first knit dress

Learning pattern drafting is hectic business. And somehow I don’t get to make as many complete items as I would like to.Its mostly working with muslin and making bits and pieces..It just takes soooo much time..Just before going to europe, I wanted to make some clothes to wear and one of them was a knit […]

Silk crepe No.2

This one is the second of the 4 colors I bought. This is a beautiful black, light weight silk crepe.. i decided to do a simple kimono sleeve blouse again, with the sleeve ending at elbow length. I stabilized the outline of the garment with silk organza as usual. I cut it in the bias […]

Silk crepe sewing frenzy

I recently went to a new fabric gallery opened on Commercial street (Bangalore). I saw amazing silks, silk crepes, light as air printed chiffons and lots and lots of other stuff.

Balms and bees

A few weeks ago, I decided to make my own lip balm and body butter. I have no idea what brought this on, but i needed to make a lip balm with no additives, so i can use it on my little girl. Her lips get a little flaky sometimes. I’ve also been looking for […]

A nice vary form curve, a pattern notcher(how cool is that..i immediately wanted to notch a bunch of things), […]

Search for sewing supplies

After googling a lot i figured out that thats where you get these tools..Since, Bangalore is under garbage crisis, with all the strike going on, avenue road would have been the worst place to go to..anyway, […]
