Hi, I’m An Ca from Flaxfield Sewing, I’m so happy to share my pattern mash with you all today!   If you like my work you can follow me on My blog and on Instagram.

Slash Hack - Suprise Back!

Slash Hack - Suprise Back!

Hello there! I’m Ilse from Sewsewilse and I’m so glad to be a guest blogger for George & Ginger! You can find me on Instagram and I also blog here. What’s my hack about? Well, I saw a lady on TV and she wore a design just as the Slash, but the side slits were closed and the back was on hip length. I loved it and wanted to create it too. And so I did. Let’s take a look how! You’ll need the Slash pattern and you’re lucky because it’s on sale for September. I wanted to use this floral ponte so badly, but...

Hey there fellow sewists! My name is Caroline and I am thrilled to be on the blog today, to show you how I turned the Runway Dress (https://georgeandgingerpatterns.com/collections/dresses/products/the-runway-dress-womens-sizes-pdf-sewing-pattern/?aff=117) into a top. As you may know the Runway Dress is the featured pattern of the month for August. It’s only $6.75 this month (just two more days - eek)! In celebration of the fabulous price on this fabulous pattern, I’ve got a super simple (and hopefully super awesome) sewing hack to share with you today. The Runway Dress strikes me as so elegant. I look at it and envision a goddess...

Below Zero Mods!

Below Zero Mods!

Hey, it's me Ree Nay (Renee)! I decided to hack the Below Zero top to be a short sleeve version, that can be worn in the summer. I love the below zero, but I had reservations about buying it when it was released, because I am not a fan of having skin showing when I am wearing a sweater (If I need to wear a sweater, I'm cold; if I'm cold, I want everything covered.) (link above is an affiliate link; clicking the link is no cost for you, but I will get a small commission if you make a...
