Completed: The Martine Sweater

It’s been a minute since I posted a knitting project, but that doesn’t mean I ever stopped knitting! I took some time off from knitting sweaters (other than my yearly OAL makes!) and have spent a couple of months furiously knitting socks. I love handknit socks – I love making them, I love traveling with […]

Completed: Black + Grey Flannel Archer

IT’S FLANNEL SEASON AGAIN, Y’ALL. I don’t like the cold – like, at all – but I do love the clothes that are associated with this season. Layers, textured fabrics, WOOL, dark colors and jewel tones… gimmie all of it. Flannel button-ups are at the top of my list. I love that they can be […]

Completed: Eyeball McCall’s 7351

Did I ever tell you guys about how much I love shirtdresses? Hi. I love shirtdresses. I don’t know what it is that appeals to me so much about this style of garment – but, as you WELL know, I also love me some collared shirts, too (or, rather, maybe just that particular pattern lolz […]

Completed: Jalie 2567

I know what you are thinking. “don’t you already have a robe you made?” Yes. Also, don’t tell me how to live my life. Honestly, I like that plaid flannel robe in theory – but not so much in practice. One, the arm holes are low on me – which makes the whole thing a […]

Completed: The Kalle Shirtdress

I’ve still got a few more summer projects that I haven’t shared yet, so bear with me here! Although, to be fair – we should be well within the throes of summer heat for at least the next month here (yes, it did warm up again!). I made this dress a couple of months ago, […]

Completed: Lemon Print Rayon Challis Alder Dress

Y’all, my love for lemons is never-ending: I have been on the hunt for a good lemon print for YEARS, basically ever since seeing Gertie use a particularly gorgeous one to make a dress. That post is from 2010, btw, see what I mean? YEARS. Like everything I try to purchase, I get really fixated […]

Completed: My Maid of Honor Dress

Here’s a fun fact about me: I have never been a bridesmaid before. Never! I would almost say I’ve never been in a wedding at all, but I did get to carry the bride’s train in a wedding when I was really young (I think 8 – it was for my mom’s best friend). Is […]

OAL2017: My Completed Anaheim Sweater / OAL Winners / Updates

Hello hello! A bit of a long post ahead – including my finished OAL sweater (yes! I finished it!) and the randomly selected winner for this year. A few updates/housekeeping before I get into everything- I love Kickstarter, and I love funding new projects and ideas from brilliant people. MyBodyModel is a new one that […]

OAL2017: My Completed Kim Dress

Good morning, everyone! It’s the last day of July, which means the deadline to finish + share your OAL garments! Today, I’m going to show y’all my finished dress – because my sweater actually isn’t done yet! LOL for being the worst host ever. Whatever! It’s been a crazy last few months, I’m not even […]

Completed: Jedediah Pants

Hi everyone! It’s been a wild two weeks over here… I turned 32, my mom got a hip replacement (she’s doing great!), and then I moved to a new house (which means NEW CRAFT ROOM coming soon!)! Lots of stuff going on, which meant less time for pretty much anything except packing and then unpacking. […]

Completed: Deer & Doe Réglisse Dress

I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve made a pretty dress. To be fair, it’s also been a long time since I’ve felt like wearing a pretty dress – something about the cold and winter just makes me want to dress in head-to-toe black, and only wear pants (very, very stretchy pants, […]

Completed: Linen Archer Button-Up

Does anyone remember my first linen Archer shirt, and the disaster that it was? Like, I don’t even think I wore that thing out in public one time. I’m pretty sure it went straight to Goodwill, where a less discerning eye was hopefully excited to find it. Hopefully. Well, I always said I’d revisit this […]

Completed: Morgan Pants

I have a well-documented love for the Ginger Jeans pattern. In fact, I love making (and wearing!) this pattern so much, that I just stopped posting about it. After you finish the 10th pair of pants, it just feeling way too fucking redundant to keep posting the same pattern praise over and over again. Needless to […]

Completed: Lemon Cabernet Cardigan

See? I told you I made a cardigan with that lemon fabric: Coming off the tail end of a season of greys and blacks (whatever, I love looking like a wannabe-goth in the winter, but eventually we all start craving some color), this lemon fabric was like a happy little breath of fresh spring air. […]

Completed: Lemon Print Watson Bra

Gah, I love fruit-themed novelty prints, especially when they are in a fruit that I actually like to eat (as I’ve mentioned before: pineapples, yes, cherries, not really. ha). Lemons have always been one of those things that I always gravitate toward – both in my palate (if it includes lemon – whether it’s a […]

Completed: The Ebony Tee

Whoa, hello April! It seems like it was only last week that we were celebrating the New Year – and hiding from the cold – and now here we are firmly in the middle of spring. Blooming trees, longer days, and allergies (well, not for this native heh heh heh) everywhere! I thought I’d squeeze out […]

Completed: Pink Flamingo B5526

Another sleeveless B5526! Betcha didn’t see that one coming :B I am pretty certain I’ve shared this pattern enough times that it definitely absolutely does not warrant another blog post, but, oh well. My blog, my rules, my pink flamingo shirt haha. Some very brief info for anyone who is just dropping in for the […]

Completed: Craftsmanship Bag

Hi! Another bag post today 🙂 I’ve been making clothes – tons of clothes – but haven’t had the will to drag myself in front of a camera quite yet. Also, my sewing mojo completely disappeared for a minute there, and this particular project is responsible for reviving it – so it seems appropriate to […]

Completed: The Kelly Anorak

Hey guys! Thank you for all your great comments, suggestions, and feedback on my last post! I’m so happy to hear that y’all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it 🙂 With that being said, my stint as a ~travel blogger~ is now officially over (well, until I save up money for […]

Completed: Static Sweater

This was my last finished knitted project of 2016, and my first *blogged* knitted project for 2017! I finished it just in time, too – Tennessee has finally decided that it is indeed winter, and dropped the temperatures to match! I haven’t knit as many sweaters this year (or, in 2016) as I did in […]

Completed: Leopard Silk Simplicity 6266

Happy 2017, everyone!! I’m going to kick off this year with one of my last makes from 2016 – featuring some uhhh-mazing leopard print silk charmeuse! Having spent the last 1-2 years of my sewing working on essential wardrobe basics, my handmade wardrobe is quite practical these days. Lots of pants and jeans, lots of […]

Completed: The Archer Popover

Oooh, one last make for this year!!! I made this about 4 months ago, but it was a sample for Craft South so I’m just now getting possession of it to actually wear! I love making samples for the shop – you get access to the pattern + materials for free, and are allowed to […]

Completed: The Fraser Sweatshirt

Gonna keep this one short and sweet today! Also, in case you were wondering – yes, I took these immediately after the photos from my last post. Just pulled the sweatshirt on over what I was already wearing! Haha! This is the Fraser Sweatshirt from Sewaholic Patterns. I have actually made this top before – […]

Completed: Kitty Rayon Butterick 5526

Here’s an old projects from my archives – I finished this months ago (in, like, August haha) and never got around to posting it. Mainly because it’s a pattern that I have done to death and I might be just as sick of talking about it as most people are probably reading about it. With […]

Completed: The Freedom Backpack

I know. I already made a travel backpack. And in all honesty – a pretty nice one at that. It has been my little tag-along for every adventure I’ve gone on since finishing it, and I get a lot of compliments on it from strangers (and a lot of boggled minds when I reply with, […]

Completed: The Mélilot shirt

Hey guys, New Favorite Outfit alert! This is the Mélilot shirt from Deer & Doe Patterns. I vaguely remember when this pattern came out – although I didn’t give it more than a second glance (the main version you see on their website is long sleeved, with dropped shoulders and a peter pant collar. It’s […]

Completed: Plaid Rosarí Skirt

Y’all. I love this skirt pattern. I’ve made it in corduroy, stretch twill, and Cone Mills denim, and I’ve had my sights on making a plaid version as well. Nothing like channeling your inner Cher Horwitz with a plaid mini amirite? This pattern is especially great for plaids as it doesn’t involve a lot of […]
