Zoe Asked Me About SFD

When one of my readers replies to an old post, I cannot see the reply unless I go to a different section of Blogger and look at just comments.  Today I found a question from Zoe.  She wants to know if I have made anything from SFD besides blouses and how the fit was.

Zoe, you must be a new reader of my blog, or you would have been showered day after day with my diffferent garments from the different kits I have.  I own the Dress Kit -- the Shirt Kit -- and the Pants Kit.  I have used them all so much, my envelopes are practically falling apart.  I may have to reinforce them soon.

Let me try to pull up some pics quickly of each type of garment for you.

Here are some pants:

Here is a dress.  I think I've made only two dresses so far.  I seldom -- if ever -- wear one.

The shirts -- made from the Shirt Kit -- have NO BUST DART.  I can't find a single shirt picture at the moment.  I think I made most of my "shirts" at my other house.  Actually, I may have added a bust dart to them.  Glenda has a video about that.

I've made dozens of blouses from the Dress Kit because I like to have a bust dart.  That includes knit tops.  Here are just a few.  Someday, I'm going to line them all up together and take a picture for Glenda.


Gotta get.  Jerry has the TV warmed up.  He has worked so hard all day today cleaning up his barn.  I've done my usual "hard work" in my sewing room. 

Hugs, Joy


  1. Hey, sewing is hard work. I strain my brain trying to figure out the best way to alter patterns for me. I wear out my legs because for some reason I can't do pattern alterations sitting down. Lastly, I put knots in my neck because I stand and look down at the pattern for so long. It is really hard on my body. I don't know why we call it "sewing". I spend the least amount of time sitting at my sewing machine actually sewing. I'm either standing at the ironing board pressing or standing at the cutting table working on alterations and cutting.

    I sure love sewing!

    Hugs, Phylly
