Here’s another version of Simplicity 1280. I made up the same size, but in a woven rayon chalis this time. Compared to my first version, I didn’t have any bulk issues and it pressed beautifully. I …
Simplicity 1280, one of their new patterns for fall. I made my first attempt to test the size and style out of an IYT knit I had. It’s very “fall” even if the print isn’t quite me. It came together…
That’s so kind, thank you! Drop me a note here when you finish it. I’d love to see it!
Thanks! I’ve been wearing it all the time with skinny jeans and boots.
I made this for the Burda Style Silk Moto Jacket Sewalong, and I am insanely proud of this jacket, as evidenced by my zillions of pictures. I strayed from the pattern in three ways. First, I interf…
I knew I had to have it when I saw it.

My 3rd McCalls 6751, this time View D with the pleated long back. That back is very long…I’m not sure that I like it. But I like the rest of it and will wear it anyway. I think the drape of the f…

It’s beautiful! And the pattern placement is perfect.
This is my first (but not last) Belcarra Blouse from Sewaholic.
I finally finished a project using a cut of the J.Crew silk/cotton blend voile I bought earlier this spring. I successfully used …
It looks great on you! We’ll done!!
This looks great! I’m working on this pattern right now.
Thank you! The next one will be from a better suited fabric. I’m pretty hard on my clothes and th…
I remember being disappointed when this 100% linen print arrived from an Elliot Berman Textiles purchase more than a year ago. It has been stuffed in my stash, avoided, because I had no idea what t…
