I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

New and improved placket pattern

My dear husband got up this morning and looked at my last night posted pattern and said - are you nuts?

So he redid it more professionally for me this morning, being someone who works with engineering drawings.

Thanks kiddo.

Never mind - feel free to delete the previous comment - as soon as I hit send I realized I was being dense and needed to go back to the original post. OY! So, tell hubby it looks GREAT and thank you so very much!!!

Barb, you will have to hire that good man when you write your book.

Happy New Year.

How funny! But I've learnt that's how geeky types show their love.
