Inspired by Carnival of Venice with an added touch of vintage, this necklace is a ray of sunshine around your neck. Textured fabric and lightness of form are all masterfully juxtaposed to create a one-of-a-kind piece.

Take time picking out favorite or sentimental scraps of fabric. Play up color combinations and textures to make a truly memorable piece. Find the full project and make it your own.

How To Sew

  1. Hello,

    I’m a novice sewer and just found your website through feedly. I have a sewing question that I haven’t been able to find an answer for. I have a denim button front a-line skirt (store bought) that sticks out at the hem in the front and the back. The hem is level all the way around. The skirt fits well in the waist and hips. The problem is that, when viewed from the side, the a-line shape is even larger in the front and back of the skirt than it is on the sides. Is there any alteration that would fix this problem? I would appreciate any tips or advice you may have.

      1. The skirt does jut out in the front and the back. However, the jut does not start from the waistband; it starts about mid way down. It looks a bit like a bell shape when viewed in profile.

  2. P.S. So far I have tried pressing, shortening the skirt (it was knee length), and taking some of the bulk out of the hem. None of these have worked, and I have no idea what else to try.
