      GRAINLINE STUDIOS just released its newest pattern, the Linden sweatshirt. A modern update to the classic sweatshirt, it features a relaxed fit, raglan sleeves and a scoop neckline. Ladies, this is the perfect winter staple!

       

      SALLIE is laid back cool in her me-made loungewear.

       

      Are you following LAUREN and the whole host of other sewers who are making V1419, a Ralph Rucci inspired coat? It’s going to be fantastic.

       

      She is and has always been an inspiration. AMY just made the most well constructed strapless bra. A combination of lace, lycra and powernet, this beats any bra on the market.

       

      Why use PDF patterns? MELISSA from Fehr Trade discusses.

       

      With the temperatures cooling off in the northern hemisphere, RACHEL just finished a colorful clover dress. I hope she layers it with tights and a sweater/jacket because it is too good to sit in her closet until spring!

       

      JEN shares a great way to finish the neckline of a wrap dress.

       

      KAREN diverted a serious dungaree dress disaster and transformed Pauline Alice’s Turia pattern into a pinafore dress.
