1940’s Haslam Skirt in Cream Upcycled Denim with Embroidered Thorn Pockets

I love a simple A-line skirt and this one made up in an upcyled cream denim is going to be a great addition to my me-made wardrobe. It’s a perfect showcase for my new embroidery pocket pattern design, stitched in a simple Thorn stitch. I love these floss colors against the cream and found perfect coordinating buttons to finish off the look! Plus the interior waistband is lined …

Vintage Simplicity 5688 Skirt with Embroidered Pockets and Retro Stripe Rib Turtleneck

I’m so happy to finally share this make, my vintage Simplicity 5688 Linen Skirt with embroidered curve pockets! I wore this for Thanksgiving and got so many compliments. My daughter wore a striped rib knit turtleneck too, so we were almost matching! There’s a fantastic banyan tree with a built in swing next to the lake in our community where my daughter loves to play. She was happy …

Yarn Dyed Blue, Ivory and Black Striped Pants

Introducing my new favorite pants! These are my self drafted wide leg pants with curve pockets in a super soft yarn dyed blue, ivory and cream deadstock fabric from Blackbird Fabrics.

Fall/Winter Wardrobe Planning 2021

I love planning out my wardrobe makes for the season! I’m extra excited for fall sewing now that the temps have dropped a bit and I have so much fabric in my stash from last year. With my ankle fracture I was out of commission for quite a few months and never got to use all the beautiful wintery fabrics I got for Christmas last year. I can’t …

Halloween 2021

I had big plans for my Halloween sewing but when it came to crunch time I simplified everything and had a wonderfully relaxed day! My daughter Amelie went as a Vampire Princess and my son Nigel went as Tobi from Naruto. Both costumes were store bought which I’m totally okay with this year. My son’s costume was a repeat from last year when there was no trick or …

Cream Rib Knit 3/4 Sleeve Top

Just a quick little post today. A very simple but immensely wearable 3/4 sleeve cream rib knit tee. This top features a slightly wider 3/4 sleeve and a nice deep hem and is self drafted. A quick sew mainly on the serger with cover stitched hems and a very narrow ribbed neckband. I always like a nice quick sew inbetween more complicated makes for a breather. I’ve been …

Mix and Match Painted Floral Two Piece Set

I love sewing up matching sets! This double make is one of my faves, a lightweight midi skirt with a nice wide waistband and a simple sleeveless blouse. Both finished with matching buttons up the front. The bold floral really makes the look! I had to have this painted crinkle cotton floral as soon as I saw it! This is another fabulous floral from Blackbird Fabrics, check out …
