Loes Hinse City Dress/Reno fabric
I've been sewing quite a bit of Loes garments lately. I'll share my tweaked Oxford pants tomorrow (or soon!). I found a quick and clever (maybe lazy) way to adapt the European zipper finish to the Oxford pattern. I really prefer the waist finish with the front zipper to the elastic waistband. I have a perfect tee and a Paris jacket to share as well.
My local sewing friend made about 20 garments prior to a recent road trip. I can't compete with her, but I am trying to use up some of the stash I continue to accumulate around here!
I am searching for a usable copy of the Portofino Dress and the Trio Skirt patterns. It doesn't need to be unused, but I need to be able to trace the small size from each of these. Hard to find!
