Welcome to Clothesline Patterns

-the home of Simple, Speedy Sewing.

You sew, girl!

The holidays are here!  The holidays are here!  We've worked hard at college this semester and I really enjoyed the chance to learn some great skills amongst some lovely creative types (most of them half my age!)

My skirt - took some things I liked - a high waist, shaped hem, bound edge......big metal zip at back...and made this!I think my favourite subject was Wendy's sewing production class where we made a truckload of samples ( zippers, casings, pockets etc), then sewed pyjamas, skirts and a couple of shirt/jackets.  Really enjoyed drawing, making the pattern and stitching up our own skirt design - it's very satisfying turning an idea into a 3-D object!

Super simple to sew cowl neck tee - the hardest part is making the pattern - lucky we have Wendy our favourite teacher to help out!


We also did some T-shirts - painless fun for those with an overlocker, but a little trickier on an ordinary sewing machine.  Here's a little cowl neck tee I made, it's pretty simple to sew once you draft the pattern up...
