{NEW TEACHER} Cristy Fincher

ETC would like to welcome the newest addition to our teaching staff…Cristy Fincher!

Cristy Fincher is the daughter of Master Quilter, Sharon Schamber. Cristy was born with a love for all things sewing, in her DNA. Growing up in Sharon’s couture wedding gown factory gave Cristy a lifetime of education about patterns, grain lines, production, fitting dresses, and the science of how fabric behaves, all by the age of 10. She loved spending time in her mom’s studio, and would wind bobbins as Sharon was sewing on her industrial Juki. Cristy’s teen years were spent working in Sharon’s factory, assisting with production, and sneaking in time to play with fabric and sew.

FincherFam_grande

Quilting goes back generations in Cristy’s family. Quilts were used until seams popped and the batting began to peek through the frayed edges of fabric. In 1994, Cristy and Sharon made their first quilt together, after buying pre-printed panels from a local fabric store. Sharon went on to become a trail-blazer in the quilting world, as Cristy became a school teacher. After Cristy was married, and began her own family, her passion for quilting grew. 10 years ago, she started her business, Purple Daisies, LLC, where she focuses on sewing and quilting education. In 2007, Cristy and Sharon co-authored Piece-by-Piece: Machine Applique, which features many of Cristy’s original designs. Teaching is where Cristy’s heart truly lies. She has spent her lifetime learning about all aspects of sewing and quilting from her amazing mom. Now, Cristy is passing on Sharon’s legacy of sewing and quilting techniques through her shop Purple Daisies, LLCteaching locally, nationally, and by sharing her own tutorials on her blog Sew Much Like Mom.

Below is a list of classes taught by Cristy this quarter!

Tutorial Tuesday – Embroidery Hoop Organizer

This month we’re going to show you how to make an embroidery hoop organizer! This is the perfect (and most importantly – cute!) solution to organizing those sewing essentials. And you’ll have it done in only a few hours!

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Ready??

To make this, you’ll need:

-1/2 yard of fabric (We used Joel Dewberry’s Antler Damask print from Birch Farm for all three hoops)

-(2) 6″ embroidery hoops

-(1) 8″ embroidery hoop

-1/2 yard of lace trim

-1/4 yard of Mochi Linen

-1/2 yard of double sided fusible Peltex

-Frixon pen

-Hot glue gun/Glue sticks

-Small sewing pins or t-pins

{ALL sold at ETC!}

 

First lay each hoop on top of the Peltex and using a Frixon pen, trace the inside of each hoop, and then cut out each circle with a pair of fabric scissors.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Next, repeat the above steps on your fabric (don’t worry about the placement of the hoops since this will be covering up the backside)

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Take one Peltex circle and one corresponding fabric circle, and iron the two together. Repeat with remaining Peltex and fabric circles.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Now, trace the hoops on the fabric again. This time we took a little extra time with the placement since this will be the front of the hoop and we wanted to highlight certain areas of the fabric.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Take a ruler and measure 1″-2″ out from each traced circle, making a mark every few inches or so. You will then cut out along the dashed line on the fabric.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Take those circles and center them on top of the other fusible side of the Peltex circles and iron in place.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

For the pocket embroidery hoop, you’ll cut out a 6″ x9″ piece out of your Mochi Linen. Press the long side over a 1/4″ and sew in place. We then trimmed our lace so it was 2 1/2″ wide, leaving the wider scallop as is on the bottom.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Layer the linen and lace on top of the fabric circle and pin in place.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

We then made our pockets by sewing two vertical lines about 2 1/2″ apart from the top of the linen to the bottom of the circle, back stitching at the beginning and end.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

Take apart your 8″ hoop and place the fabric/Peltex circle on top of the inner hoop. Take the outer hoop and place on top. Adjust the fabric as necessary and then tighten the hoop as much as possible. You’ll then trim the excess fabric around the hoop so it’s 1″ wide. Take a hot glue gun and glue the raw edges to the inside of the hoop. Because the larger hoop has 3 layers of fabric, you’ll need to glue down the patterned fabric first, then go back and glue down the mochi linen, AND then, very carefully, glue down the lace.

Embroidery Hoop Organizer

For the 2 smaller hoops, you’ll first, take apart your embroidery hoops like we just did above and place the Peltex/fabric circles center over the inner hoop. Place the outer hoop on top, adjust the fabric as needed, and then tighten the outer hoop in place. Trim your excess fabric so it’s 1″ wide and, once again, hot glue the raw edges to the inside of the hoop.

And done!

So easy! We love how the little hoops become mini bulletin boards to help organize things like bobbins, sewing notes, or pictures too. Or you can leave them totally empty for decoration :)

We hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial! Happy Tuesday everyone!

All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise noted.

To make this dress, you’ll need:

(Please read through instructions BEFORE purchasing your supplies)

-Tank top in desired size

-Butcher paper or wrapping paper

-1/2 yard of fabric for bodice

-1/2 yard of fabric for bodice lining

-1 1/4 yard of fabric for skirt

-1 button (no larger than 5/8″)

-4″ piece of ribbon for button loop closure – optional

{All supplies can be purchased at ETC!}

^^Above fabric increments were used for a size 10. You might need less depending on the size dress you make, but we recommend getting what’s listed above to give you a little wiggle room^^

First, lay your tank top, folded in half, on the edge of a piece of large paper (The back of wrapping paper would work great if you don’t have anything else on hand!)

Liberty Sundress

Tuck the top of the backside fold into the tank top to conceal it and make it easier to trace the neckline of the tank top.

Liberty Sundress

Using a pencil, carefully trace the outline of the tank top. We used a Cherokee brand tank top from Target, fyi :)

Liberty Sundress

Measure 3 1/2″ – 4″ down from the under arm seam (We started with 4″ and eventually trimmed it down to 3 1/2″ to give the dress more of a baby doll appearance)

Now measure 3″-4″ out from the top of the should strap (keep the strap width the same throughout – Ours was 1 3/4″) and then draw a pointed scallop shape at the top.

You’ll then measure 1 1/2″ from the side seam and then 3/4″ from the arm, shoulder straps, and neck seams. Connect all those dots and you now have a finished top bodice and lining pattern piece! Not too bad, right? ;)

Liberty Sundress

To make the back pattern piece, you’ll measure up 3″ from the bottom. Draw a curved U shape from the shoulder strap to that mark. Make sure it’s more U shaped than V, very important!

Liberty Sundress

Now, like we did previously, measure 3/4″ out from that line to compensate for seam allowance. You’ll also want to cut out a 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of paper to later attach to the back pattern piece. Set it aside for later.

Liberty Sundress

**NOTE: The reason we measured out 3/4″ and 1 1/2″ instead of 1/2″ and 1″ is because, after doing some testing, we realized that you have to factor in stretch when tracing a knit top for a woven top. Otherwise your bodice will be too tight. We recommend making a muslin version first, if possible, to test out before cutting into your other fabric. If it’s still too tight, just add another 1/2″ onto the side seam of your pattern (So 2″ total). It’s safer to add extra to your seam allowances, because you can always take it in later if needed.

Now that our pattern top is complete, you’ll cut it out following the lines for the top bodice/lining. Place pattern piece on the fold with the grainline, pin in place, and cut out. Repeat one more time so you have two front bodice pieces.

Liberty Sundress

Liberty Sundress

You’ll then cut out along the U-shaped line we made earlier for the back bodice/lining piece (Save this in case you need to tape it back together later – trust us! haha). Tape the 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of paper to the back side of the pattern. This does not need to be cut on the fold, just make sure you’re cutting along the grainline. Place the back bodice pattern piece on fabric, pin in place, and cut out. Repeat one more time so that you now have 4 back pieces total.

Liberty Sundress

Liberty Sundress

Take one back bodice piece and one back lining piece and with right sides together, sew 1/2″ along back seam, armhole, shoulder straps, and neckline. IMPORTANT: If you’re choosing the button loop closure, before you sew your two back pieces together, you’ll want to (on your left back bodice piece) create a small loop with your ribbon, place in between the two fabrics on the back seam, about a 3/4″ of the way down with the loop facing inside the bodice. Using a washable glue (Tombo Aqua is our fav) place a small dab of glue along the seam allowance and adhere the ribbon in place. Now pin your back bodice pieces and sew together like normal. Just make sure to trim the excess ribbon ends before turning right side out and pressing.

Cut notches into the curves, making sure not to cut through the stitches. Or, our preferred method, use pinking shears instead! Reduces bulk and makes it easier to press!

(Side note: We made our pattern pieces slightly too small, therefore our seam allowance in the picture is 1/4″. Ignore this and sew the 1/2″ like suggested. You can always go down to 1/4″ if needed or make your pattern pieces slightly bigger)

Turn it right side out and press. Repeat with remaining back side pieces.

Liberty Sundress

Place the front bodice piece and front lining piece right sides together, and sew 1/2″ around the arm holes, should straps, and neckline. Clip along curves or use pinking shears. Turn right side out and press.

Liberty Sundress

To join the under arm seams, without any exposed raw edges, you’ll open up one of the side seams of your front bodice and lay flat right side up. Open up the side of one of the back bodice pieces and, with right sides together, place on top of the front bodice piece. Make sure if you have the left side of the front bodice open, that you also have the left back bodice piece with the button closure on top. Line up your edges and side seams and pin in place. Sew 1/2″ from beginning to end. Press open your seams and repeat on the other side.

Now’s the time, if possible, to have your little girl try on the top for fit. It’s not too late to make adjustments if needed! If all looks good, continue on :)

To add your button with the button loop closure, you’ll now want to take a pencil, overlap the two back pieces by 1/2″, and make a mark towards the end of the loop. This is where you’ll want to sew your button on.

Liberty Sundress

Liberty Sundress

Keep the bottom of the bodice in place by sewing a basting stitch like pictured below.

Liberty Sundress

If making a buttonhole, you’ll want to follow the instructions on the manual for your sewing machine. This is our preferred method, but we know buttonholes seem kinda scary so choose the closure you’re most comfortable with!

Your bodice is complete now! Time for the skirt…

First you’ll want to figure out your measurements…To figure out the width of the skirt, measure your bodice from side to side. Take this measurement and multiply by 6. For example: Our finished bodice was 13″, multiplied by 6 and that gives us 78″.  To determine the length of your dress, you’ll want to measure from just below the breast bone to the top of the knees (You can make it longer or shorter – up to you!). Take that measurement and add 1 1/4″. Our finished length was 23″. (*NOTE* If wanting the length longer than 23″, you’ll need more fabric for the skirt)

Liberty Sundress

We cut our yard and a quarter for the skirt along the fold with selvages lined up to give us two long pieces. We cut each of those two pieces into a 39″ (Your width divided in half) x 23″ piece. With right sides together sew 1/2″ along both short sides. Press your seams open. Now you’re ready to gather!

Liberty Sundress

Since we didn’t have to trim our fabric for the length of our skirt, we utilized the selvages and sewed our basting stitch 1/2″ away from the selvage. We loved this method because there was no fraying of the fabric while we ruffled. After you have your basting stitch in place, you’ll want to gather your skirt until it is as wide as the bottom of your bodice.

Liberty Sundress

Liberty Sundress

To avoid having any raw edges where the skirt and bodice meet, we used a french seam to join the two together. We put WRONG sides together, matched up our side seams and sewed a quarter inch. Be extra careful to make sure the edges of the skirt are lined up with the bottom edge of the bodice. Those ruffles can be sneaky and hide below your seam allowance.

Liberty Sundress

Now turn your dress so it’s right side out (will look like picture below when you do). Now place the bodice and skirt RIGHT sides together so that the 1/4″ seam allowance is sandwiched in between the bodice and skirt. Sew 1/2″ along the edge. If needed, pick out any exposed basting stitches.

Liberty Sundress

Liberty Sundress

To finish the dress you’ll need to hem the bottom of the skirt. Press the edge over a 1/4″ and then over another 1/4″. Sew close to the top folded edge of the hem all around.

Liberty Sundress

And you’re done! You just drafted your own pattern and have this cute new patriotic dress to show for it!
