Designer Stitch Willow Kimonos (and a bit on the class I’m teaching!)

After a series of neutral colored garments, including greys, black, navy, etc., I have been itching to return some color into my sewing. A sunny, golden yellow did the trick!

Wool Sweater Knit Oslo Cardigan

Sometimes you need a big, oversized fluffy cardigan to keep you warm and cozy. That time is now for me. Cardigans and sweaters have obviously been on my mind. Because I want them on my body.

Testing, testing: Helen's Closet Avery Leggings

Leggings! Another thing I almost never wore when I lived in Southeast Asia, but I now wear regularly in a wide variety of ways (for working out, for hanging out, as a warmth layer under pants, under skirts, and so on...).

I was pretty smitten with the Itch to Stitch Bellavista top the second it came out... something about the proportions just spoke to me. Here's my version!

Style Arc Cher Dress

Due to some efficient cutting, I found myself with a bit of Fabric Mart's black ponte fabric leftover from my Metropolitan Chimera Jacket... while the black was still threaded in my machines, I decided to make it into a quick dress!

Dude Sewing: Far Far Cardigan

This is one of my last projects of 2017, a gift for Tim. With temperature plummeting here in Vermont at that time, he needed some layers!

Dude Sewing: Bram Raglan + Beer Belly Adjustment

I made my brother a garment and it fits! I'd tried to sew him a couple things in the past, but nothing has quite worked out yet for various reasons (fabric with no recovery, poor instructions). Third time's the charm!

Hot Patterns Metropolitan Chimera Jacket

You might have seen this baby pop up on the Fabric Mart blog earlier this week... I wrote a ponte-theme post, with one garment for me and one for time. Ponte power couple?
