Recent projects- a collection

So...I might have a sequin problem...and a vest problem...or maybe we can avoid calling them problems and just enjoy these projects. The only one that was for me (for now, at least...it IS a sample) is the mustard yellow wool vest. It's so nice and provides just enough warmth for what I need indoors. I … Continue reading Recent projects- a collection

Brasilia Maxi dress

When Rachel, our adorable and sweet as can be, Brazilian sewcialist (that's her, above), contacted me about testing her Brasilia dress pattern almost two years ago (really, that long?) I jumped at it. I made a light pink version and sent her pictures and never did a proper post. Here you can see my work in … Continue reading Brasilia Maxi dress

Jumpsuit Fever

Yes. I've got jumpsuit fever. It's bad. I'm buying all the jumpsuit patterns and have plans to make them ALL! I'm working up the By Hand London Holly version 2 right now. The Holly trousers I made came out so well I knew I was ready to cut. I was told on IG to mock … Continue reading Jumpsuit Fever

Sew Dolly Clacket… just in the nick of time!

I jumped on this bandwagon a little late in the game- silly work schedule. See, I bought this koi quilting cotton maybe a year ago that I knew I wanted to make into a skirt...later, maybe 4 months ago, I bought the Cambie pattern and put two and two together. Some of you know how … Continue reading Sew Dolly Clacket… just in the nick of time!

What did I just say about buying another pattern??

Do you remember this book? I thought it was the best book when I was a kid...and I still love it! Grover keeps telling the reader not to turn the pages because, as the title says, there's a monster at the end and he's not that thrilled to meet this monster. But, every time the … Continue reading What did I just say about buying another pattern??
