Maybe, like me, you've always lusted after a certain indie darling wrap dress, but were put off by the fact that you would have to grade it up multiple sizes to fit your body? And maybe you were also deterred by the fact that it is designed for wovens and for knits and wondered how… Continue reading Wrap Dress Tutorial
This is me. 45-41-52. (image from My Body Model- a fabulous tool for sewists of every size!) An important conversation has been raging across the sewis-phere over the last couple of days regarding size inclusivity in sewing patterns. I won't rehash all the gory details, as this post is about moving forward, but I must… Continue reading On Sewing for the Average Body
When looking back on 2018, there is no doubt in my mind that it was a great year for sewing for me! I'd like to think of it as "The Year of the Pants", since it was the year I finally overcame my fear of pants fitting and tackled a few new patterns for my… Continue reading 2018 Year in Review
I'm so excited that I can finally share this secret sewing project that I completed what seems like FOREVER AGO (real time: February).

Let me go ahead and make… Continue reading Cashmerette Ipswich Swimsuit Tester Version

Shit, ya'll. I'm back (?) ! I've dusted off the 'ol blog, (probably) blocked all the flickr creepers, might at some point review my comments for spam, and I have a brand new (as of like 9 months ago) laptop. And, just in time for Me-Made-May '15. That fun time of year that everyone loves… Continue reading Me-Made-May ’15
Whats the take-home message from Me Made May 2014? KNITS KNITS KNITS. I've been sewing knits since I started sewing 1.5 years ago, and I have no intention of stopping. Its what I like to wear and the main reason I started sewing. The really nice thing is that the blogosphere seems to have caught the… Continue reading Me-Made-May Reflections
Here is a much belated wrap up of the latter 2/3 of May, better late than never?!? I wanted to get a post up so that I could pontificate about my feelings on the experience this year as compared with MMM2013. Days 11- 14.
