What’s Cake? Well- many of us who sew like to make fun stuff: dinosaur costumes, fluffy dresses, excessively quirky 40’s frocks and all manner of clothes which don’t see much wear. These garments and projects are the “frosting.”
Many sewists use the term “cake” to refer to useful sewn items- pencil skirts, knit tops, knit dresses, jeans: the kind of utility and casual clothes that everyone needs. Why shouldn’t sewing and wearing those kinds of clothes be great fun? Why not get the most from your sewing time (and $$) by making garments you LOVE to wear all the time? Do knit tops and jeans have to be 100% utilitarian and boring?
I don’t think so.
