Japanese Knot Bag Sewing Tutorial & Pattern

Sewing Gifts on Time Sewing Bee Site ~ all around the world members are making the Japanese Knot Bag together this weekend or working on other projects. Sewing in solidarity is an excellent way to bust through your stash.  It’s a Yahoo Sewing Group/Community that I don’t necessarily participate much with, but I keep up to speed on the activities and Holy Scnmoly! do they say Busy as Bees! If you like to ogle finished object (fo’s) or need a partner to sew with cyber sewing is something to consider ~ and as always ~ SPAMMERS NEED NOT APPLY!

Fashion Faux Pa

I got to thinking about the origins of fashion rules. The other morning I was answering some questions from 365 Days of sewing question of the week or of the day. It got me thinking of all the fashion rules that have been broken and really look good. Like plaid with polka dots, or polkas and stripes, animal print with neon colors. Some days when I am observing people in there wares I really have to deconstruct what they are wearing to figure it out. If I am deconstructing, that means I don’t know what the hell I’m looking at, but mommy likey!!!

Wedding Dresses

I am doing a wedding dress. Not for me for a client. Adding a corset back and looking all over the net for pics and tutorials. Mostly because it is now a common request and I wanted to do something different.

I would love to come upon a gallery of corset back dresses and tutorials for inspiration. There are a lot of talented people out there. Here is one http://artnouveaubride.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/sewing-my-wedding-gown-part-four-the-overdress/ and I love the idea of the underdress with corset. Now it may be Eduardian, but it is currently Haute to me. I love it.
