Inspiration: Weekend Designer

Today while browsing my usual blog roll, I ended up on Don's blog Weekend Designer.
Don Morin, designer and instructor, very generously provides free instructions to draw patterns inspired from RTW. The instructions are very detailed, with the measurements to use for each line of the patterns, followed by assembly instructions to put your garment together.

This blog has been around for a while, so everybody but me probably already knows about it, but being fairly new to the internet sewing community, I am once again amazed at this odd thing the internet is, which allows people to share selflessly their knowledge with whomever is interested.

Anyway, I've spotted a few projects that I'm already itching to try and make (click on the photo to access the tutorial):

winter vest by Chulo Pony

a stylish double-breasted vest by Moloh

an easy ruffled top with bateau neck from Abaeté

a Cloche-hat ! (this one from Banana Republic)

  1. Hello!

    I think I saw once the tutorial for the cloche hat and I so wanted to try, but my sewing skills are not up to it I think!

    It is amazing how much ideas you can find on the net- by the way, congratulations on featuring on Burdastyle!
