The Great Pattern Hack :: Delia Creates

Great Pattern Hack _ Delia Randall

Look at that sweet face in such a fantastic dress! I’m so excited that Delia Randall is joining us for the last day of The Great Pattern Hack.  Delia’s style is what I would classify as effortless/meticulous/classy/playful.  There should be a name for this…maybe it’s classic? Either way, I admire her stitching so much!  Her pattern hack sets the same standard. She walks through, in beautiful, clear detail, how to alter a dress with a zipper to have a button closure.  It’s such a small tweak but a really hard to do successfully! And Delia shows how to do it with ease.  I’ll be pinning this one for sure!

Fabric: Delia used Indigo Yukie fabric (one of my favorites, too) and a Cotton Couture solid for the pockets.  Pattern: She tweaked the always-fantastic Sunki Dress from Figgy’s. (It’s my dream that Figgy’s would upsize all their patterns to womens size…how great would that be! I want all of them for myself but especially a Nituna or the Zephyrs, definitely Ayashe…yup, just all of them!)

I can’t believe it’s the last day of the Great Pattern Hack! I’m so sad! It’s been unbelievably fun and inspiring to see everyone’s amazing pattern hacks and I don’t know what I will do with myself when I don’t have another delightful surprise waiting for me.  Hmm…maybe the fun will keep going?  Might just have to watch and see! 🙂


Are you a pattern hacker? There is still time to play along!
I hate when blog hops feel like a party I didn’t get invited to and I don’t want this one to feel that way to anyone!  Do you tweak your patterns and stitch up magic, too? Then join in! Grab some Michael Miller fabric and show us your skills! Hack a pattern, any pattern, and share your creation on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  Make sure to tag your photos so we can find you– @michaelmillerfabrics and @ahappystitch and use the hashtags #GreatPatternHack #MichaelMillerFabrics #AHappyStitch .

No time to stitch something new? Leave a comment and tell me about your favorite pattern hacking experience.  Let’s inspire each other, my fellow sewing ninjas!

There will be a surprise and some giveaways tomorrow so the fun isn’t completely over —thank goodness!
