Grainline Studio Alder: Classic, Comfortable, and Perfect!

In true last minute fashion, I’ve been on a roll trying to squeeze in some last minute warm weather makes before my thoughts start to turn to sweaters, turning leaves, and Rhinebeck. It seems that I’m not the only one, I’ve seen quite a few Alder dresses popping up in my instagram feed lately! I […]

A Labor of Love

I finished the last stitch on my Liberty print McCalls 6696 on Saturday and I’m in love! I feel so silly for delaying this project for so long, it was a very hassle free project. This is actually the second time I’ve made this dress. I stitched up a wearable muslin version at the end […]

Year End Wrap Up

I did it! I’m down to the last few days of 2014 and I have not purchased one new piece of clothing this year. To be fair, I’m not much of a clotheshorse, even though I work in fashion. Shopping doesn’t really excite me, so this project was a bit easier for me.   Even though it […]

Summer Concert Tee

This past weekend officially kicked off the beginning of summer and how fitting that I managed to sew up my first summer tee! The pattern is the Summer Concert Tee by Dixie DIY, which I picked up in the Perfect Pattern Parcel #1 (perfect pattern parcels are only available for a limited time, but #3 […]

A Tasty Floral Macaron

I finished my Colette Macron a few weeks ago, but it’s awfully hard to get a picture around here lately. I really need to get myself a tripod! The process of fitting this dress was a little frustrating at first. When I cut out the pattern, I was in a little bit of a hurry […]

The Saga of the Skirt

I’ve been nursing a sinus infection for two weeks and decided I should probably take it easy this weekend. So on Saturday, I didn’t have much on my agenda besides a few chores and sewing up a skirt. The problem was my meds make me a little loopy and a bit tired. When I’m tired, […]

Planning a Wardrobe

Now that Albion is finished and my hubby’s sweater is almost complete, I’m busy searching for my next knitting and sewing project. Planning out my wardrobe is making the task of selecting a new project a little bit harder than usual. Normally, I see something I like and I make it. If it’s out of […]

Albion Progress Update #2

After almost giving up on my coat project two days ago, I think I’m close to solving my sleeve problem. Last night I did a victory round on my Stasis Pullover after I drafted my third attempt at a well fitting sleeve. I may be writing about nothing but sewing lately, but of course I […]

Albion progress update #1

I finally had some free time this weekend, sans husband, to spread all of my muslin and pattern paper all over the floor and make a mess of the place. I vaguely remember now, that one of the reasons I don’t sew too much anymore, is how hard it is crawling along on the floor […]

Wardrobe Architect

One of my goals this year is to make more of my own clothing. While I’m quite covered in the sweater area, my sewing has taken the back seat for the last 12 years. While attending FIT, I loved sewing. I made all sorts of things from leggings to tailored jackets complete with leopard lining. […]
