Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

Two Sweatshirts Started & A Jacket Almost Ready

This weekend, I was busy playing Grandma, so not much sewing done. I did get two tops cut out using the Dana Marie/Purrfection Patterns "Pacific Northwest Sweatshirt". I cut it out in a plain white stretch 100% cotton, and in a hot pink jacaquard stretch cotton.

Earlier in the week, I started the Classic Jacket by Dana Marie/Purrfection in a hot pink fake suede. It is the fabric on the right in the photo above (I was considering lining it in the print, but haven't done so.) I've run into a small issue - the sleeves don't have enough ease, so they seem to be pulling the shoulder down. I hope in the next few days to have time to rip out the underarm seams and see if that is the problem.

I purchased fabrics FROM DANA MARIE'S KIOSK AT SEWING AN STITCHERY EXPO. she refuses to refund shipping on her defective product. I see you are mentioning her patterns. she is not a reliable company in my opinion.I had difficulty in obtaining the refund for the defective merchandise after i had returned it.Now the refusal to pay for the return shipping of her defective product.
