Simplicity Pattern 4070 – Pattern Review

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Simplicity Pattern 4070 was made by one of my sewing students Emily.

It was a great success and I recommend making this pattern for yourself or someone you know.

In today’s video I show you Emily’s dress, the special designer touch Emily added to make it unique, as well as which fabrics are suitable for the Simplicity Pattern 4070.

Sewing Pattern Review Butterick 4386

Friday, August 30th, 2013

One of my student’s Anna was invited to a wedding and wanted to make a beautiful new dress for the occasion.

She purchased a gorgeous piece of lace and we transformed a simple Butterick dress pattern B4386 into a designer after five!

What I loved most about this dress was playing with the pieces of lace to get just the right look we were after.

Watch today’s video below where I share with you details about the pattern, fabric chosen and the sewing features!

P.S. Make sure you watch to the end where you will see my special sewing helper!

Old Denim Jeans Transformed into a New Denim Skirt

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

I am pleased to share with you another transformational project from an avid sewer Irene!

Irene sews at home and her sewing helper is her gorgeous cat Tigger!

As you can see below Irene has transformed a pair of old denim jeans into a new denim skirt. (Please note: this jeans photo wasn’t the actual pair cut up as we didn’t get a picture of the actual pair used. So we have included this denim jeans photo to demonstrate what was done from an original pair of denim jeans).

New Denim Skirt Front – The front of the skirt is the pocket and fly section of the jeans and the back pocket sections of the jeans, with two small panels from the legs to make the lower halves required for the width.

Back of Skirt - The back of the skirt are made from the legs of the jeans.

Tigger gives Irene a cat kiss after the job is done! How cute!

Well done Irene! Thank so much for sending your transformed Jeans pictures to us here at Maree Pigdon Sewing Centre to share with our readers!

Suzie bought this delicious strawberry and chocolate cake for dessert for end of term, check one out below!
