Drape Drape 3 No 12 and a Pattern Sharing Post


I am sharing this pattern to on line sewing enthusiasts.

(Inner panel suppose to be one piece, due to fabric limitation, it was sewn together using 3 pieces of fabrics)

Original design has a split and open side view which is too revealing for normal daily wear. Pattern modified to close the opening and to create a tulip shaped hem.

 I am sharing some pictures I took while constructing this dress .

Comes with simple sewing instructions

Fabric is heavy. It drapes down and pull the dress longer.
If use fabric not very stretchy, this dress will end up too short.


Mark and Pin prepare to sew on the inner panel.

The dress is heavy and pull down the arm hold and made it too big. I threaded a thin cord to hold the arm hole stable. Using a hair pin.

Sew on the inner panel. 
The Instruction in the book calls for top stitch to secure the inner panel. I used serger.

Shoulder seams were sewn as above. Folded to make a twist.

Enjoy your sewing!

Huggy Tee for kids pattern and sew along.

  1 comment    


My daughter has been suggesting that I need to make kids' patterns too.
and I got a request for the Huggy tee for kids. So, really a great chance to finalize a pattern that I've been using all the time.


I've been sewing for my kids and their friends' birthdays all these years ever since they were born. 

The great thing about sewing for kids is they grow fast and you can always sew new things. 
If you love sewing you know what I mean.

For me another great thing is both my kids have their own "styles" and preferences. I know what they would wear. It is quite frustrating when they refuse to love the clothes I make after I finish them. I learned from that and now, I always consult with them before I cut the fabrics.

Once they like it, I keep making the same things using the same patterns just one size up one size up again. Choose their favorite colors also an important point to remember.

Sometime I like they like those "color days" at school.

Today is pink day, no bully.
Tomorrow is sports day, and they have group colors.
I feel so good when these sewing excuses come up.
Sit down and sew for my kids;a super good reason for my passion to exist.

But, how fast they are getting taller!

 It makes me happy and sad at the same time whenever I realize it.

I made 3 colors this time.

I used bamboo knit for the black ; pink one was said to be also bamboo but I suspect maybe it is something else ; the yellow one is cotton knit.

This pink one I didn't attach the neck band. 

This black one is cut short, without neckband, and one size up, so it sits a little loose.

It is a body hugging  tee so the actual tee is smaller than the child's body. so it has to be made in 4 way stretch knits.

Thank you and happy sewing!
