This blouse was made using McCall's 8027 pattern

Santina finished the poppin bag she started in Jane's class. She used Kaffee Fasset fabric.

Cathy and Jane decided that this stunning silk plaid looked softer on the bias. She used bias for the main part of the sleeves and cut the back on the straight grain. She looks so elegant in this silk tunic top.

Laurie made her velour dress using her new serger.

Laurie's daughter loves that her mom sews.

Vicki's new top.

Vicki Z looks great in her new vest.

Vicki made this jacket using the Stylearc Loren pattern.

Patty S. made her plaid blouse with a warm flannel. The plaid is printed on the diagonal which creates a softer pattern visually.

Kathy finished her shirt made from this fun print. She used a complementary fabric to insert a trim and cover the buttons. The fabric is rayon. She looks so happy.

Thea Thea wore her cute skirt to Jane's studio. She used two different cotton prints for her design.

Jane used her newly designed Wisteria Fabric offered by Spoonflower for her top. She selected spandex for the fabric.

Cathy T. looks amazing in her new top. She and Jane had fun fussy cutting this exciting stretch print fabric.

Keren L. machine embroidered her jacket in Jane's studio. Adding an embroidered motif made the garment unique.

Joy D is wearing her linen tunic.. She used a dress pattern that she loves and just shortened it. This color of linen is exactly her eye color and makes her eyes sparkle.

Kathy D used Butterick B6100 tee shirt pattern to make this dress. She just added 14” to the hemline and it’s a perfect dress for this striking fabric.

Wai looks so amazing in her Nova Coat (formerly called Sapporo Coat) by Papercut . The fabric is so beautiful and she used both sides to create more interest.

Vicki Z completed her French couture jacket. It is a work of art! She selected a Vogue pattern, boucle wool from Alice at Mendel Goldberg in New York, silk for the lining from Stone Mt and Daughter, and buttons and trim from Britex.

First Vicki made a muslin (toile) to perfect the fit. Then she quilted the silk lining to every panel of the jacket which was then all hand stitched on the inside. All the hems are hand stitched and a chain is inserted inside the hemline to give the jacket some weight. Great needlework Vicki.

Jeanne and Barbara model muslins made with Nova Coat by Papercut

They both look great in their new coats.

Vicki Z made a fabulous jacket using Papercuts Luna jacket pattern (formerly called Kochi jacket).

Kathy D used an amazing print and a solid fabric to make her top. The curves of the pattern were made to echo the curves of the print. To achieve this it meant cutting the knit on an angle. She used a Vogue pattern.

JoAnn B is wearing a tunic she made for Jane's stripe challenge. She perfectly matched the stripes down the center front.

JoAnn made this hoodie with Butterick B6863. She had found the knit fabric with an animal design while she was in Portland.
