So I made something a little out of the ordinary. My husband requested a project -- yes! He actually requested that I sew something for him! He works in a shop, and requested a shop apron for him to wear when he goes in on the weekends and doesn't want to bother with heavy coveralls. … Continue reading Denim Shop Apron
Our Canada Day celebrations called for my red and white Violet Top (aff. link) blogged here, and Grainline Maritime Shorts! I've made this pattern before here, and two other unblogged versions. From my other pairs, I learned that the pockets are too deep as drafted, so I shortened them again, and that I like a little … Continue reading
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. When I first saw the new Itch to Stitch Beausoleil Top & Dress (affiliate link), I knew I needed one, but I needed one in a classic easy-to-pair fabric so that the unique shoulder … Continue reading Itch to Stitch Beausoleil Top

Mmm. … Continue reading Sewing up Spring!

Yeah, that's where I'm at with this top. Here's the story of my Linda Top. First of all, … Continue reading Pattern Review Linda Top
When I first heard of Project #SewMyStyle, I was really excited. I'm all about capsule wardrobes, and it seemed like an awesome way to slowly build a wardrobe! As I looked more, I realised very few of the chosen patterns were truly my style. That's okay, though! I can still follow along, and sew pieces … Continue reading Toaster Sweater #1
Wearing this hoodie is like getting a hug from my mom, and let me tell you - my mom gives the best hugs. It's warm, it's cozy, I can retreat inside of it when I just can't deal with the world anymore, and I still feel cute in my bright pink sweater! ...
