Flower Cabochon Pendant Necklaces "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

To be honest, I must tell you guys that I squealed in delight when I saw these amazing and oh-my-sweet word so romantic rose cabochons.
And when I saw the trays -  well, then I knew they were the perfect match! Aren't they gorgeous?!
There are about 10 or something designs, not sure, because I made just 6 necklaces for this time and I am saving the rest for next week.  These three are my favourites, the one with the blue and red flowers topping the rest.

The other three are immensely soft and delicate and equally enchanting!

sewing: brussels washer linen felix dress "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Holli of Hello Holli.

I love the style lines of the Felix dress. Traditional wrap dresses dont work well on my body type, so a faux wrap style appeals to me as a safer (read: no wardrobe malfunctions) option. The pockets hidden in the shaped waist seam sealed the deal for me- I knew I needed a Felix!

Ive used brussels washer linen in od green and rayon bemberg taffeta in silver for my dress. Up until now Ive always chosen a cheap fabric from a chain fabric store for lining. I thought since no one would see it, it wasnt worth buying anything nice.

My mind is changed: this rayon bemberg taffeta feels so good on the skin! In washing, drying, and moving it around for cutting and sewing I havent had any issues with static, something I often have trouble with on cheaper poly lining fabrics.

I dont use dryer balls or sheets, so coming out without static is quite a feat! I now cant imagine spending the time to make a quality lined clothing item with cheap lining. Ive worked the past few years to make items for myself out of quality fabrics that feel good to wear and make me happy, and this lining fits beautifully in that category.

I first sewed with Brussels washer linen on the Metamorphic dress, and I love it so much this is my third garment in washer linen since! Washer linen is a gorgeous linen rayon blen...

sewing: Felix Dress in Tencel Twill & Rayon Bemberg "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Rachael Anne Allison of RachaelAnneSews.

Fall has finally come to Texas, and I couldnt be more excited to begin wearing (and sewing!) my fall wardrobe. First up is this gorgeous new Felix Dress from Grainline Studio.

The Pattern

Jen Beeman of Grainline Studio knows what she is doing. The Felix Dress pattern is one of the most creatively constructed garments Ive ever made. And her instructions are SO clear that I didnt have to unpick (except from silly user error mistakes) while sewing. Sometimes a sewing direction just doesnt make sense and I have to spend forever thinking through it, often sewing the same seam multiple times. Not with this dress.

Jens instructions are great, as is her thorough sew-along. Her sew -long is so thorough, that its ALL I used to get through sewing this dress. Its that thorough, and it felt like I had a coach talking me through each step, giving me tips on how to navigate the tricky bits effectively.

This pattern is meant to sit loosely, and I tend to prefer things to be more fitted, so I made the size I fell into for the garment measurements, but then sized down TWO sizes in the bodice under the underarms. (I left the armscye alone and only graded in from the side seam notches to the waist). Its not something you can do with all patterns, but it worked with this one because of the way the skirt attaches; I just gathered the skirt a little bit more.

I dont think Ive ever made a fully lined dress before, and I just love the look of it. This dress looks so professional. And its not because I sewed it all perfectly, certainly not. Its because of the quality drafting and clear instructions.

The neckline on the Felix Dress is a v-neck faux wrap, and its 100% secure. Based on the way the neckband attaches, it doesnt open at all from the bottom of the V downwards, so it has the clever lo...
