The Deer & Doe Datura Blouse is a classic shell with some fun twists. It is semi-fitted and has a buttoned lower back. There are two options for necklines: a triangle cutout or a Peter Pan collar. If you’ve been around here long, you know that I basically live in tank + cardigan combos. I’m… Continue reading Deer & Doe Datura Blouse
Howdy friends! It’s been a while, but I will hopefully be blogging several of my summer makes over the next few weeks. One of my more recent makes is a Helen’s Closet Ashton Top. Helen describes this top as “an all-season wardrobe staple that is easy to sew and style”. I’d say that’s true! I’m… Continue reading Ashton Top from Helen’s Closet in Cotton Voile
Happy almost-Easter, friends! It seems to me that Easter is one of my favorite times to wear a me-made dress or skirt. Conveniently, I am more or less stuck at home (along with many of you, I’m sure) and have plenty of time for a new skirt. I chose to make Simplicity 8606 because it… Continue reading Simplicity 8606 – An Easter Wrap Skirt
Howdy friends! I’m still alive – I promise! I’ve been pretty busy the last few months, and as a result, have not been sewing a lot. Even though sewing is the thing that helps me relax, it seems to be the first thing to go when I get busy. I am in the midst of… Continue reading All But Dissertation: A Jelly Roll Quilt
Howdy friends! I’m back today with new make: my Kelly Anorak Raincoat! After I made my first Kelly, I knew I wanted to make a raincoat version. Apparently, I just love a sewing challenge. I get a huge satisfaction out of making something other people think you can’t make for yourself. I thought about this… Continue reading Kelly Anorak Raincoat Edition
Happy fall, y’all!! It’s a beautiful day here in Charlotte! The sun is shining, the trees are changing, and I have new jeans (Ginger Skinny Jeans) to dance around in! I started these Gingers back in April (!!!) and finally finished them about a month ago. My sewing space is in my garage, so summertime… Continue reading Ginger Skinny Jeans – Closet Case Patterns
Vogue V9251 is a smash hit among the internet sewists. The Instagram hashtag is filled with beautiful creations by sewists all around the world. I’ve never had much luck with wrap dresses, but I don’t know how hard I really looked for one that worked for me. Given the success everyone has had with this… Continue reading V9251 – A Holiday Wrap Dress
I’ve been looking around for a good top pattern for the cooler months. I’m clearly in love with the Ogden Cami, as well as the Lago Tank, but they’re not warm enough for this cold weather. I was looking at the various raglan patterns that are out there, but I’m not the biggest fan of… Continue reading Uvita Top — Keeping Me Warm and Cozy
It’s that wonderful time of year when the leaves have changed and I get really cold all the time. It’s the time of year I start thinking about how much I need more jackets in my life. This year, I finally did something about it and sewed up a Kelly Anorak jacket. When Closet Case… Continue reading A Cozy Kelly Anorak Jacket
It’s apparently supposed to be fall here, but we’re back into the 90s today. I’m actually a bit happy, because now I’ll have more time to wear this cat-tastic Lago Tank! (I’m actually wearing it as I type!) The Lago Tank is a FREE pattern from Itch to Stitch*. I’ve sewn up a few Itch… Continue reading A Cat-tastic Lago Tank!
