For many of us, sewing is a solitary sport practiced at home in pockets of time that we manage to carve out of our busy lives. That is what makes sewing retreats so special – uninterrupted swathes of time dedicated to the project of your choice. And when you get stuck? You have a whole host of sewing minds to help you out. Unfortunately, many of us haven't had the opportunity to sew with friends over the last year. However, Linda recently got the chance to check in on an online sewing get-together over Zoom with some longtime Sewing Workshop friends.
The Marceau is a knit top featuring an asymmetrical collar and hem, as well as a statement sleeve with pleated detail. It's a great top for everyday casual wear, but I wondered, can it be transformed into a dress? Of course! Read on to see how I transformed the Marceau Top into a full-length dress.
In this week's Facebook Live, Linda demonstrated how to add a pocket to the Picasso, Hudson and Mimosa Pants. Here is the pocket template guide that you can use to add pockets to any of your favorite patterns! Click here to watch Linda's presentation on insert in-seam and patch pockets.
I've been seeing a new trend in t-shirts popping up recently. Stores like Anthropologie and Modcloth are updating the classic top by combining different prints and fabrics. This isn't a totally new concept, but it can be tricky to sew a woven and a knit together. Luckily, Linda has us covered. She created a tutorial for this very trend last year - she is so on top of it! Check out some of the ready-made shirts I've seen in stores below, as well as the Eureka tutorial. I'm re-publishing the original post so you can make your own combination top with the Eureka pattern!
