Quilted Cable Coral Cardigan
Sometimes a piece of fabric has to marinate in my stash for a while before finding the perfect project. Other times it's barely out of the bag before it's been assigned to a pattern and sewn up... this fabric falls into the latter category!

Book Review: The Dress in the Window by Sofia Grant
A book review is outside the normal course of business here on this blog, but the subject matter was too appropriate to pass up and the timing was right with my machines being on the slow boat from Thailand.

MyBodyModel: Fashion Sketch Templates to Your Measurements
Fellow sewcialist Erica Schmitz has launched a KickStarter campaign today for MyBodyModel, technology that will make fashion sketching templates (croquis) to your measurements.
I love MyBodyModel's mission, create body-positive design tools for garment makers and designers. I volunteered to be a tester for MyBodyModel, along with a group of experienced sewers, knitters, and designers who will test the croquis builder software and user interface.
Here's what Erica says about MyBodyModel's Kickstarter campaign:
"Kickstarting today! @MyBodyModel is creating a web app to make real-body sketch templates to your measurements. Because every body is different. Getting lots of backers early on Day 1 is the most important predictor of Kickstarter success. Thank you for your help to make MyBodyModel a reality!"
All backers will get early access to the MyBodyModel Beta website. You will be able to make and download your own croquis, made to your measurements. You can print your croquis on paper, and sketch your designs by hand. Or import your croquis image into your favorite sketching app or illustration software.
Go check out the Kickstarter and consider supporting your fellow sewcialist in developing this incredibly useful tool!
