Hate pulling on regular sewing machine threads to gather fabric? Would you like to gather one fabric and attach to another in just one step?

In March we will cover how to gather, ruffle and puff on the serger – with and without a Ruffling Foot. There are two projects this month. One for you – the Sheer Fun Scarf – and one for that special little girl in your life – the Girls Ruffled Tiered Skirt.

3-days of Pamela Leggett Designs!!

The Perfect T-Shirt OR Swing Tunic Workshop

peekswingtunic     swingtunic

 

You probably think of a t-shirt as that comfy top you throw on to do the house-work. In reality, a nice fitting t-shirt can be the most versatile top in your wardrobe. This selection from Pamela’s Patterns addresses all the fitting issues women face (rounded shoulders and back, full bust, hip room, etc.), and gives you a t-shirt you’ll be proud to wear anywhere! Make it casual, dressy, or anything in between.

This adaptation of the popular cold shoulder style, The Peek-A-Boo Swing Tunic, is thoughtfully designed with the modest woman in mind. Pamela makes it sew very appropriate by creating a scaled down version that shows just a “peek” of shoulder and covers any bra strap. If this isn't your style, choose the classic shoul-der option - the choice is yours! The swing-y tunic shape shows off an “essence-of -waist” and hides a lot of fluff. There are multiple sleeve length options including a flattering elbow length and a bohemian style "fit & flare". Choose a modified or lower scoop neckline, or the stunning asymmetric style. Very chic!
