I need a drawing of an airplane for a proyect

I'm looking for dance costume patterns like unitards and catsuit leotards and tutu

I am looking for jumpsuits or rompers patterns for average size women. Thanks

All these patterns are really cute for young thin girls/ladies. But what about us golden not so thin women?

I feel the same way, I've had a breast removed due to cancer and have problems wearing a bra now. Plus I am big in size and cannot stand hardly anything around my waist. So I make long and short moo-moo type dresses and add accessories like ric-rac, piping, and other things to make them a little more stand out so I don't feel so aweful. I would post pictures if I knew how only I don't. But they're not so hard to make if you have one or can get one and are creative.

I am looking for a standard pillow sham pattern for Christmas. Thanks jdbarnhart4

thank for nice pattern Lovelykidzshop

I am sure you don't want negative comments but please check some of your advertisers they are scammers and hackers looking to take away hard earned money

I just love this site. I wonder though what happened to all the community vocation courses we had that we could just for fun like sewing, painting. The site is awesome but the interaction would be more inspirational...just thinking out loud.

I plan on making the caftan dress. I love easy and roomy, especially in the summer, but this looks like it would be great around the house in the winter if made from fleece, which also doesn't fray. Another way to cinch the waist is to include ribbon ties on either side which can be tied in the front, or to stitch the ribbon on the back to be tied in the front. An applique or flower can be added over the stitching to make it look like a design detail.

this site is very usefull for students who want make a career in fashion industry

love this site, but isnt there any magazines tht can send for in uk, they all seem to be usa?

im making the baby itsey bitsey dress cant ait to finish it and see my neice wearing it, thankyou for patterns

I love this site..

i looking for a pin up dress with tutu skirt.... can anyone help me find a pattern i cant seem to find anything myself... maybe you could send me an email on lekvi87@outlook.com

Please send me any dress patterns: They can dress patterns for women size 16 and 18. Plus any baby clothes and for little girs of size 14.

I wish you had some patterns for lounging pajamas

I came here looking for patterns for baby dresses. I would like to see more options. The ones you have are cute, but there are just very few.

I agree about the pop-ups. The doggie dentures pop-ups have just about turned me off. I love the patterns and ideas. Just not so many crazy pop-ups.

Cute ideas but wading through the pop-ups is unbelievably annoying. I won't be a frequent visitor.

good more information about sewingneeded

Great ideas. I want to come back on the website when I have more time and really explore. Thanks for the ideas.

I THINK THE PATTERNS ARE GREAT AND IT HELP ME ALOT IN MY SEWING. THANKS
