Hey, y’all! It’s been a while. How has 2021 been treating you? I was on a mini sewing kick for a while in the spring, but alas, life events and natural disasters got in the way, so there hasn’t been and won’t be much sewing going on until I find a less temporary place to… Continue reading Repurposing My First Ginger Jeans into a Skirt + More Lark Tees!
Kelly from True Bias sure does know how to make some of the best wardrobe staple pieces. The sewing blogosphere and Instagram (-osphere?) are always busting at the seams with new Ogden Cami and Lander Pants/Shorts makes, and they always have me wanting to make more for myself! I’ve made a few versions of the… Continue reading True Bias Double-Threat: Ogden Camis and Lander Shorts
Summer is in full swing, so it’s time to bust out the flowery dresses! They’re so simple to style and wear, yet they make you look so put together… it’s a win-win! I’ve had this fabric in my stash for too long, so it was time to put it to good use: Isn’t it so… Continue reading A Flowery P4P Timeless Tunic
I’m sure like many people, I haven’t been moving around as much as I should have this past clusterfu… year. It’s so nice to be a potato inside all the time, but better weather (and some “normal life may be returning before too long” hope) has me itching to get outside and MOVE. I finally… Continue reading Getting My Energy Back with Greenstyle Xpress Tanks!
How long have I been saying I would make the Sewaholic Thurlow Trousers/Shorts? 5 years? more? I lost track, but I am here today to proclaim, “I FINALLY DID IT!” And let me tell you – I was on the struggle bus for the majority of these shorts. I don’t know what it is about… Continue reading Sewaholic Thurlow Shorts… FINALLY!
Hey, everyone! I hope y’all are doing well during these weird times. DD and I are hanging in there and enjoying the extra time to cuddle our kitties (who are ecstatic about us being home 24/7, btw). I have a treat for y’all today… not one, but TWO sewing projects! Here we have my fourth… Continue reading Lazo Trousers and Another Melilot!
The weather has warmed up to beautiful spring temperatures here in New Orleans, but I have a winter-worthy basic to show you today! It’s the McCall’s 6796 sweater! I’ve made it 3 times before (1, 2, and 3) so I guess you could say this is my go-to long-sleeved pattern. This is the first time… Continue reading My Fourth McCall's 6796
Now that I’m slipping back into sewing again, I’m reaching for my good ol’ TNT (tried-n-true) patterns. Now you KNEW it was only a matter of time until I had to make another Colette Moneta! Surprise, surprise! Isn’t this the cutest fall outfit? I know spring is right around the corner, but I’m moving a… Continue reading Let’s Stop Counting My Monetas, Shall We?
Where am I? What year is it? Happy 2019, everyone! I wish I could come up with a wittier title and a cooler project, but that’s about all I have to share right now. We have entered deep winter in Japan and I’m in a particularly snowy and wet area. There is no insulation in… Continue reading Japanese Seat Cushion Covers
I’ve always had issues finding the perfect button-down blouse. Store-bought shirts would either be too tight in the shoulders and back, or too tight in the hip area. Thank God for the joy of sewing and the plethora of indie patterns that allow me to finally feel comfortable in button-down shirts! I’ve had lots of… Continue reading My First Long-Sleeved Deer and Doe Melilot Shirt
