WhatTheCraft Sewing Patterns
Aug 23rd, 2012 by Alexis

I’m super excited to announce that a project I’ve been dreaming about and working on for months is finally finished!

The new WhatTheCraft shop is now officially stocked with my very first WhatTheCraft Sewing Pattern!

People have been asking if they can buy my patterns for years, and now you can!

The Cheeky Bikini is a low-rise, hipster cut underwear – cute, comfy, and quick to make! Plus, it doubles as a pattern for swim suit bottoms. For the price of a single pair of store-bought undies, you can have panties for eternity with this one pattern!

All WhatTheCraft Patterns are original patterns drafted by me. They are downloadable PDF patterns, so you can have it in your hands almost instantly. Each pattern contains a range of sizes from Extra Small to Extra Large – I’ve done all the hard work of grading the pattern for you! And best of all – you are welcome to sell items made from WhatTheCraft patterns!

I’m planning on also offering the patterns in the SmarmyClothes shop, as well as in my Etsy shop in the very near future, I just haven’t had time now that Halloween season is upon us!

Video tutorial for ruffle butt bloomers or panties
Sep 3rd, 2011 by Alexis

I finally got this tutorial uploaded to Youtube without problems. YAY!

This two part tutorial will show you how to make a damn cute pair of  ruffle butt underwear. (Or plain butt underwear if you’re not feeling ruffly. But ruffles are fun, so don’t neglect the ruffles.)


Thank you to for providing the ruffle fabric. Check out their site, it’s like a candy store for us fabric fiends!

Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!  I have a crap ton of tutorials on the way (including drafting your own custom tube dress pattern, no-sew hair bows, sewing and hemming knits without a serger, making homemade limoncello and vanilla extract, and more)!

And if you have any tutorial requests, leave me a comment!

This tutorial was filmed using a Creative Labs Vado HD Digital Video Camera, a Canon Rebel (for still shots), and edited in Sony Vegas Movie Studio.
