Hi, Friends! Long time no talk over here on the blog, I hope you have been following me on Instagram where I have been sharing my adventures recently. But, I have two big announcements I wanted to make here. Firstly, I'm hosting a sewing retreat this fall in New Mexico and I would love it… Continue reading A Retreat and a Re-brand!
It's my turn to post on the Curvy Sewing Collective blog this week and I was going to post about my self drafted ski pants, but I couldn't muster the energy for that epic post. Hopefully soon! So I was brainstorming about what projects I finished recently and hadn't talked about and I remembered the… Continue reading Sew Liberated Hinterland Dress

These weren't without their challenges, but I ended up with some fun pants and know what I need to do next time to improve the fit. Meg teased this pants pattern on Instagram for what seemed… Continue reading Sew Liberated Arenite Pants
Hi, sewing friends! Here are my first two pairs of Avery Leggings from Helen's Closet, the first two of many, I'm sure. I love them both and at least one pair gets worn nearly every day. My first pair was made in a (guess what?) double brushed poly from Imagine Gnats. I don't think I… Continue reading Two Helen’s Closet Avery Leggings
