A UFO – not lost, but found!

Last weekend I attacked with renewed energy one of the UFOs I found when I was analyzing my #MMMay2018 results and inventorying my fabric.  (Found?  First I would have to I admit it was lost!  Never!) I had previously made a Designer me-made Copy of a GAP tank top for my sister with a beautiful… Continue reading A UFO – not lost, but found!

My quick fix and I am really happy with it!

Yesterday's post resulted in a lovely blue cardigan, McCall's M6802 ..... that needed some improvement.   The pattern instructions suggest to leave the bottom and collar edge rough or to hem the bottom and collar edge up as usual.  The problem with that is the bottom hem continues up into the collar hem, which then… Continue reading My quick fix and I am really happy with it!
