Marigold/Anza Jumpsuit

This make was ALL ABOUT the fabric. I bought two metres of this gorgeous Linen/Cotton Chambray from Blackbird Fabrics on a whim before I new what I wanted to make. I thought, and thought, and thought some more – then was walking downtown wearing my Marigold Jumpsuit when it came…

Closet Case – Kalle Dress

I told you I’d make another Kalle! After my first go at the pattern – the shirt version made in a size 8 – I immediately decided to take another run at it. This time, I sized down to a 6 and made the dress version with pop-over placket and…

Closet Case – Kalle Shirt

I’ve decided to replace one item on my Make Nine list – the skirt. After making five pairs of high-waisted jeans so far this year, I’m not really in any need of more bottoms. What I need it tops. I also wanted a pattern that I felt I could modify…

Megan Nielsen – Flint Pants

After my first pair of Ninni culottes, and how often I have been wearing them, I needed more wide-leg pants in my life. Enter the Megan Nielsen Flint Pants. I’ve seen these on Instagram for a while but their volume scared me away from trying them. Then I made the…

Seamwork – Addison Tank

I purchased some Cupro and Viscose twill from Blackbird Fabrics on Christmas day on a whim and when I got it, I had no idea what to do with it. Whoops! That’s supposed to be against my rules. It took me a while to come up with the right pattern…

Alice and Ann Kendra Dress #1

Before I start, a quick disclaimer: this blog post will contain too many exclamation marks because I LOVE THIS DRESS SO MUCH!!! I am numbering all of my blog posts recently and it is so nice to be finding patterns that I really love. This one, the Alice and Ann…

Megan Nielsen Sudley Blouse

It was love at first site for me for both this pattern and this fabric. The pattern is the Megan Nielsen Sudley Blouse and the fabric is a viscose poplin from Blackbird Fabrics. Neither are winter appropriate and I really should be focusing on my holiday sewing but, as I said,…

Seamwork Mesa #1

When I title a blog post with the #1 at the end, it means I’ve found a pattern I like. I have had Seamwork Mesa in my pattern stash for a while and I decided to give it a try with a black ponti di roma remnant from Fabricland. I made two…
