Sewing clothing like dresses, skirts, jackets and capris.

Warm Corduroy Jumpers

I have used the same pattern over and over again with different variations. I love corduroy in the winter and it is like wearing a blanket.  I even make a few scarfs to add to the jumper. None of the patters have zippers. They are all pull overs.

Cotton Dresses W/Matching Bloomers

My same trusted pattern with a little change in the design. I use a patter for my bloomers that I can also make capris out of. The pattern is retired (Butterick 6884) for the but there are other patterns like it.

Cotton Dresses

For Sewing Cotton Dresses I use two main patterns to make most of my dresses. May be someday I will try another pattern. All have side seam pockets. I just cut them up differently. I really like the dresses with the bodice they give me a shape and hide any extra weight I may be caring.

Adding bloomers can make hot days nicer because they are made of cotton and keeps my legs from sticking together. I did not make matching bloomers for these dresses here. I ware white with lace when I do not have matching bloomers. Plus I like they way they look.
