Announcement: From "Semi-Scratch" Sewing Series

May 31, 2011

 For the rest of this week I plan on offering a glimpse into a new series I plan on offering next month. That is: individual patterns to use for thrift store refashions.
The series will be called: "From Semi-Scratch Sewing": Using small patterns to transform your wardrobe.

I will be taking a thrift store find and using a new sleeve or collar or skirt pattern I've designed to transform the piece into something new and amazing and I will be offering that pattern in PDF for you to use yourself. 

I really like the concept of taking an already sewn piece because it's a great way for beginners to start in their sewing journey without feeling overwhelmed. AND it's a great way to have a new piece in a much shorter time than sewing from scratch.

I hope you'll join me!

I can finally comment on this!!! I cannot wait for this- super inspiring as usual. I've already eyed up the black and white sailor collar :-)

Fabulous! I absolutely love this idea and can't wait! I'm especially looking forward to the tutorial for the tulip-like sleeves pictured in pink. Every time I see these on a garment I fall in love. Looking forward to it :)

Semi scratch sewing is good for those who want to give machine sewing a shot...but are afraid of fabric stores (really it's true). These are the types who will readily dive into closets and thrift stores...but have to be dragged into a Jo-Ann's or Hancock's.

I haven't done much sewing lately since I moved into a new place. But now that my sewing station is set up and everything is put away, I really want to get back to sewing. This is such a great idea, especially when your on budget.

I'm so excited about this idea. I was just talking to a friend of mine about teaching her to sew by altering thrift store finds. This will be great! I can't wait.

I don't get it, when will this project start? I'm so anxious, and at first I thought the month would be June... How long do we have to wait? :)

Was this series done under a different name, or just never done?
I've looked all through the archives, unless only "featured" posts get listed there. Yet I'd think these would have been featured. I'd really like to read these. Please tell me the link.
