I made a thing! I picked up this lovely herringbone chambray from LA Finch Fabrics last summer, and finally found a perfect use for it.

The drafting is always superb, the instructions are … Continue reading Itch to Stitch Lago Tanks

Not all of their patterns fit into my personal style, but the ones that do are some of my … Continue reading Hey June Willamette Shirt

Welcome back! Is it spring yet, wherever you are? Green is starting to pop up here, and yet it snowed over this past weekend. As usual, spring is the most confusing season of them all. Nonetheless, I'm still sewing for warmer days. Erm, much warmer days apparently. It's still far too chilly to wear this … Continue reading Spring Maxi Dress
