HOW TO MAKE LOES' LATEST SHAWLS

By Sharon Lyon
on August 15, 2015

This is for a 'standard' size shawl. You can change the dimensions for your personal preference.

Width is 24"           Length is 90"

With your serger, roll edge around all edges.

That's it!

Wondering what to do with the unused fabric since you only used 24" across the width. You should have plenty left to make a matching Tee Top!

Or make a shawl for a friend!

ROCHELLE TOP - another great new pattern from Loes Hinse Studio

By Sharon Lyon
on August 02, 2015

Similar to the Madagascar Tank, this new Rochelle Top pattern has sleeves - long in View A and 3/4 length in View B. Features side shaping as well as shaping on center front and center back seams. The look is enhanced with a boat neck. 

Again, this one was very popular at the Loes Hinse Sewisng Seminars in Carmel!  If you copied it there, this published pattern has been refined from the original.

Turning the Loes Hinse Design Oxford pant pattern into cropped pants with a narrower leg

By Sharon Lyon
on June 25, 2013

To make new length, cut off 7 1/2" to shorten. (Or use your preferred length.) Don't make them too short!

On the outside seam at the new bottom cut line, draw a new cut line 1 3/8" inside the original cut line. Taper up to just above the knee.

On the inside seam, draw a new cut line 1 1/2" inside the original cut line starting and tapering as done on the outside of leg.

To make sure the the hem area lays flat, the underside of the hem needs to be as wide as the right side of hem.  

This makes a great warm weather pant!
