chevron fleece pullover 

Happy Autumn, Everyone!

As much as I love wearing layers, I really envy my dear friend, and past Daley's employee, Shawnna, who moved to Texas recently. I prefer the heat!

Here's a fabulous, easy, and most importantly, WARM pullover that I made with some black and white chevron fleece that came in recently. This is made with a McCall's pattern. The pattern features side panels, so for those of us who want to conceal, we can use black fleece on the sides for a slimming illusion. The one illusion I'd like to have for the next time I make this project is a different color for the sleeves. The chevron stripes on the shoulders, for me at least, gives a football player effect. The pattern also includes the option to add a hood. Excellent when it comes to keeping ears and cheeks warm!

I've got several projects that I'm in the middle of that I will be sure to post pictures of as soon as I finish them!

And remember, we've still got raffle tickets available to win that brand new BERNINA 350 sewing machine! All proceeds go to benefit Breast Cancer research at Dana-Farber, right here in Brookline, MA. Stop by the store anytime, or you can even purchase tickets online and I'll mail them to you!

What's this "Foot Club" All About?! 

The Foot Club will be meeting once a month to learn about new feet! The end product is this mixed-media foot book. With each foot, we'll do a few samples, and create a page for the book.

This coming Saturday (9/28), we'll be working with #20, the open embroidery foot. Yes, #20 correlates to a BERNINA specific foot, but all machine brands are welcome, as long as you have a presser foot similar to this one. Working with #20 and the twin needle, we'll learn techniques of how to hem knits, and create amazing double stitches. 

As we go along, these pages will become double-sided and will have eyelets applied so they can be bound between the covers that will be made after a few pages are finished. I added some important sewing advice to my last page, along with band-aids.

I hope you'll join us on our journey to learning new techniques, new feet, and getting creative!!

Happy Housewife Dress 

Colette Patterns: Crepe Wrap Dress

The Daley Review

Oh My Goodness. I must have this in every color. This pattern was so easy to fit and to put together. With exception to the darts, I did absolutely everything on my serger. I whipped this up in about 3 hours. It was so much fun!

I used Newcastle Fabrics' "Happy Days" fabric collection for this dress. I fussy-cut the top so there would be a perfectly centered woman. We will be offering this dress as a 2 session class in the Fall. It will be Saturday, October 12th and Saturday, October 19th from 10:00-12:00pm.

You can enroll right now by following this link!

Happy Sewing, and I hope to see you this Fall!

~Erin
