Not much sewing going on these days for me! Soon, soon, I hope... but plenty of other crafts in the meantime.

Brocade Holyoke Skirt and Cotton Modal Dartmouth Top

I had a fall wedding last week and I really struggled with what to wear/make, but I ultimately landed on something that was super comfortable and pretty classy, I think!

Inspired by Muna and Broad's recent outerwear week, I cut out and sewed up this Belmore Jacket on a whim, but I am pretty delighted with it!

Polka Dot BHL Hannah Dress

I hope you're ready for a series of woven wrap dresses... I've gone down a woven wrap rabbit hole and I'll be doing a bit of a comparison over the next few weeks!

Rug-print Appleton Dress

I know this isn't news, generally, and it's certainly not news from me, but just a reminder: the Cashmerette Appleton is a magical unicorn of a dress.

Sew House Seven Elemental Skirt

Free pattern alert! 

This is the Sew House Seven Elemental Skirt pattern, a free pattern that goes up to a 62 inch hip. Woohoo! I couldn't resist downloading and making this super simple but well fitting knit pencil skirt in two lengths.

Stripey Seamwork Devon T-shirts

I've been on a quest to replicate/improve upon the Tessuti Mandy Boat Tee, both because I don't like the turn and stitch neckline and because the size range, although expanded, just isn't very good.

Ice Dyed Cielo for Mom

 Can we discuss how hot my mom looks in this outfit/these photos/in general?

Georgia Tee Two Ways

 My brain can really only handle simple projects right now! 

Simple tops, simple pants... simple but satisfying.

Ice Dyed Mave Maxi Skirt

This is a long post with many tangents. But I have a challenge for you: can you spot the issue I'm trying to hide in this photo?

Mahogany Turban

 Sneaking in another February post...I had so many plans for Black History Month Pattern Designers challenge (#BHMPatternDesigners) hosted by Nateida of Sew Natural Dane and Keira of Island Sewcialist, but had some decision fatigue and only ended up with one project. But it was a good one!

Alex Apron for Tim

Tim has really stepped up his cooking game during the pandemic... previously he was a dish duty guy who dabbled in pancake flipping, now he's a gourmet chef, cooking up beef bourguinon ala Julia Child on the weekend and spicy pork noodles on weeknights.

Grinch Green Seamwork Amari

I had big plans to sew myself a beautiful red velvet dress for Christmas... but in the end I gave in to the reality of 2020 and sewed this Grinch green fleece jacket instead.
