Linda's inspiration after Katherine Tilton's class-several colors of this knit at Treadle


Kids' Jackets


Children's Jumper


One of a large family of dolls


Beautiful Jacket

The children’s jumper and doll can also be seen at TaDa Creations on etsy. Amy is cranking out dolls and clothes now that the kids are in school. She was a wealth of information-the quilt store knits (Michael Miller and maybe Moda) shrink. I confirmed that with Tracy at The Sampler. She said 5-6″ per yard. Amy recommended Chez Ami as a source for great kids’ knits. The site has clothing for sale but also sells the fabric used in her garments.

And now for the Material Girls’ garments:

Kristin played around with two versions of a brown ponte roma (at Hancock) skirt, a long vest and was also inspired by Katherine Tilton to make the most of a “design opportunity” while modifying one of Marcy Tilton’s tee patterns.

McCall's 6169 and Straight Skirt

Debbie was inspired by the August/September Threads’ blouse variations and an idea in Quick and Easy Sewing With Your Serger.

Short Version of McCall's #6169

Laurel flashed us with a bit of red-I wish I could have had a video of it. We all agreed she should wear more of the color.

Shocking, Laurel, shocking!


Sewing Workshop MIxit Shirt and New Look 6598 Blouse


Boutique Blouse-McCall's #5138

Well, that’s it for October. Bernina is now carrying Swedish Monster paper for tracing patterns. The calendar is full of classes-check them out if you are interested. Let me know if there are glitches in the website as you are my proofreaders 😛

Enjoy the leaves and happy sewing.

One response to “October Fashion Sewing Club

  1. McCalls 5138 Boutique Blouse.
    Try a smaller size pattern ,and use a full bust adjustment, for a better fit.Reason:-Too much fabric above bust and the front is rising a good 2-3 inches at hemline.
    Hope this helps. regards Lyn
