When I was pregnant some months ago, I was one of those blessed expectant mothers who do not have major aches, pains or nausea from the pregnancy.

I first started working on this dress in May 2018, more than a year ago. When I saw the pattern, with the ruched front panel and option to use contrast fabrics, it captured my attention.

The title is so unimaginative! I can’t help it. It’s been quite hot these past few days, the last of the Summer heat bleeding into Autumn. Sometimes I just can’t think of a more interesting title. So let’s jump right into it, shall we? I made this top in a green cotton jersey. The significant … More A Green Top [Butterick 5354].
Happy Valentine’s Day! I had wanted to make the Sewaholic Cambie Dress since it came out many years ago (2011? 2012?). I think it is feminine and universally flattering – the sweetheart neckline, the gathered shoulder straps, the shaped bodice and the flared skirt – I haven’t seen anyone who does not look a million … More A Floral Valentine’s and How I Expanded the Bodice [Sewaholic Cambie].
Welcome to the first post of 2019. I hope everyone had a great New Year’s. My sewing goals for this year are: (1) to use as much of my stash fabric as possible, and only buy new fabric when it is for a specific project only; and (2) finish as many of my incomplete projects … More Geometric Shift [New Look 6145].
