A few months ago I saw this reversible stripped knit fabric on one of my warehouse walks. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make something out of it for the blog. I loved the feel of it and the fact that it was reversible was an added bonus. Robin found this pattern and we both liked the ease and flow of it. I also like that as it cools down I can put on a pair of tights and knee-high boots and have another look. Sorry it took a few months to get it sewn & posted, but better late than never. Here are a few pics of the process and the links to the materials we used.
Pattern: Vogue 8813 Fabric: Stripped knit Buttons: Grey/brown swirl Notions: Wonder Tape
And off to work I go.
October is here and that means Halloween. Here are a few projects that we have up in the store. Hopefully they will inspire you to get sewing. Also our entire Halloween section is 20% off until this Sunday. Don’t miss out.
This flapper dress is simple and fun.

This GI Jane meets glam look is great for your Halloween party, yet easily transitions to your regular wardrobe. I tried the pants
on and they are really comfortable and perfect with a black t-shirt.

Here are a few easy aprons that work perfect with all of our Halloween cotton prints.
Lastly I love this fun table runner our cotton buyer made. She used the Moda Pumpkin Party charm pack, a fun print for the back, and some ric-rac.
Super easy & great for your Halloween parties.
Happy haunting! Don’t forget if you live in the LA area our employees will be dressed up in the costumes they made Saturday, Oct. 19th. This is always a fun day to come down and shop.
