It looks like I have a tendency to sew a new soft bra whenever I have impending international travel. I made the Seamwork Florence Bra when I went to Japan in the spring, and now I’ve gone and made Madalynne’s Noelle Halter Bra for my fall trip to Europe. Isn’t she glorious? And do you… Continue reading A Noelle Halter Bra for Travel
Vacations are a great source of inspiration for getting the ball rolling on new sewing projects.

On our trip to Japan in March, I wore a comfortable pair of skinny jeans on the flight. After… Continue reading Grainline Hemlock Tunic Hacks
I am stupidly lucky and grateful that I have been able to visit Europe twice in 2 years. I love traveling and DD and I are big fans of hitting up Europe as much as we can.

I have made the ultimate Gertie item… Butterick pattern 6217 with a Gertie cotton sateen fabric! Things are getting crazy over here! I could have copied Gertie exactly in her post here and used my Gertie rayon fabric for this blouse. BUT I like to think I’m more creative than that, so I went with… Continue reading Gertie + Gertie = Fabulous Vintage Top!
Until now I have made numerous skirts – pencil, knit, swooshy, embarassing – but they all have fallen short of what really suited me. You’d think with the millions of skirt patterns out there, at least one would work for me, right? Well, my search has ended! Simplicity 1109, a simple pleated skirt, has done the… Continue reading Simplicity 1109: How I Love Thee
