Blueprints for Sewing Saltbox Top

I've had my eye on the Blueprints for Sewing Saltbox pattern since it came out as part of the Sewing Indie Month bundle... those asymmetrical angles! So cool! So elegant!

Anna + Veronika = Annonika?

I needed a dress to wear to a good friend's wedding recently (the same wedding for which I made my beach cover-up Mojave)...

Tutorial: Single Layer Slash Pocket

When I make pants that have a slash style pocket, I tend to like to make it a one-layer pocket to reduce bulk in my hip/thigh area. I've used this type of pocket many times, including on my recent McCall's 6083 jumpsuit, two pairs of Hudson pants (cropped and chambray), my two Bettines (rayon and lawn), Tim's Juba shorts, and my Ilsley skirt. I had some requests for an explanation of what I mean when I say "one-layer pocket," so I made a tutorial. A very, um, rustic tutorial, but hopefully it explains what I'm talking about!
