So....after a bit of research it seems I might be able to adjust the princess seams to accommodate the girls by snipping the seam over the fullest part and letting the fabric spread to its natural relaxed point. Then I take a measurement to show how much extra width is required and add that amount back in to the paper pattern. More origami and Blue Peter work to follow..sounds too easy and so I guess the proof of the pudding will in the next mock up... #sewing#slowfashion#learntosew#imadeit#madeforme#handmadewardrobe#doesntfit

NEW CLASS ALERT! ADULT SEWING!
Does this sound like you? -- I have a sewing machine but I’ve never used it!
-- I’m curious about sewing but don’t know where to start
-- I have a machine but it scares me (I can’t seem to make it past threading the damn thing!)
-- I took a sewing class once upon a time, but don’t seem to remember any of it
-- I want to try out sewing before investing in my own machine
...Then sew 101 is for you!
During this class you will learn basics of machine sewing in an encouraging small class setting. You'll conquer threading the machine and bobbin, adjusting tension, stitch settings, basic maintenance, troubleshooting, and use of basic tools. Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to practice your new skills by creating a cute drawstring bag or other small beginner sewing project. You’ll leave this class with newfound crafty confidence and completion of the prerequisite for our other adult classes.
We've added several opportunities for you to come sew with us in April and May - check them out on our website!

A close up of the @pinksandbeachdesigns Modern Clutch Wallet which Michelle will be teaching on Saturday 22nd April. As you can see it is big enough to hold your phone (iPhone 5 not included) plus a few other essentials on your night out. There is also a little internal pocket for your cash or cards. You can dress it up or down depending on your fabric choices. More details on the class can be found in store or on the website (link in profile). #voodoorabbitfabric#learntosew#learntoquilt#brisbanesewing#brisbanesewingclasses
