Be Active Shorts Pocket Tutorial

Be Active Shorts Pocket Tutorial

Hi everybody! It’s Heather Fletcher from @Fletchersewing. I’m going to show you how easy it is to add inseam pockets to the Be Active shorts pattern. 

First, find a pocket pattern piece that you like. I’m using this one from the women’s Zip It Hoodie pattern. Make sure that the wearer’s hand will fit into the pocket nicely. If you don’t have a pocket pattern piece, you can draft your own by drawing around the wearer’s hand and leaving a little bit of room and a flat edge to attach the pocket to the side of the shorts. Don’t forget to add 1/4” seam allowance if you are making your own.

One of the basic skills of sewing is gathering. It adds fullness to skirts, sleeves, necklines, aprons and many more things. It also looks great on pillows, totes and could be used as an applique. Yet, a lot of people, including myself cringe at the thought of a gathered dress. For example, take the Girls' Halter Maxi...

Hacking the Be Greater Top

Hi Readers, 
It is Sequoia, from www.sequoialynnsews.com, again and I am sharing another hack with you. Fall is coming to Ohio pretty quickly, so I am showing you another great cardigan! This time, I am using the Be Greater Pattern. Yes, I know that is it a dress pattern. It's a hack, remember??? Basically anytime someone in the sewing world says they are hacking something, it just means they are using a pattern for one thing and making it into something else. This time a dress into a cardigan.
