Corduroy Shoalhaven Shacket
I've had the Muna and Broad Shoalhaven Shacket traced in my size and ready to cut out for months... almost a year, in fact, since I traced it while we were still living in our old apartment.
Moving and home repairs, etc., kept me from it last winter, and then it was warmer weather and my mind was on summer sewing.

Autumn Plaid Flannel Tarawi Shirt
This shirtmaking project is very much autumn inspired... the colors, the style, the plaid, the flannel.
It's still hot and humid out, but winter is coming and I'm onto the next season (although I reserve the right to randomly pop up with one more summer dress or boxy top; that's how my creative process works).

Ice Dyed Double Gauze Quince
Every year for the past few years I go on a fabric dyeing bender and dye a bunch of yardage. These past few years it's been ice dyeing. I've really been honing my technique!

From Sketch to Reality: Fiona Top
I asked my niece, who's turning 11, what she wanted for her birthday, and she sweet-talked me into bringing a garment idea of hers into reality... "Auntie Meg, you're so good at sewing..."

Tropical Print True Bias Mave Skirt
It's that time of year again, where I optimistically (desperately?) start sewing summer clothes and Vermont responds by bringing a snowstorm...!

Paisley Cashmerette Vernon Shirt
Last week I said to myself, "Meg, you need a new white buttonup shirt. A classic, simple, white buttonup. The one you made a few years back is a little snug and a little stained."
