White Linen Closet Core Kalle Shirt

My new wide-leg Closet Case Ginger Jeans (newly renamed Closet Core) were destined to be paired with a white linen Kalle Shirt from the first moment they popped into my mind. I’ve never had a linen button up shirt before, never mind a white one, so I’m not sure where…

Sugardale – Len Coveralls

UPDATE (July 12, 2020) – I’ve recently learned that Sugardale patterns are no longer available and have removed links to the pattern and their Instagram in my post below. Unfortunately I do not know if this pattern company will be returning and I do not know of anywhere else that…

Marigold Clyde Pants Hack 2

I tried it again! The same Clyde pants hack from my last post but this time much narrower and made out of Tencel Twill from Blackbird Fabrics. I made these while I was up in Nanaimo, helping my mom after her double knee replacement. She’s a champ though and I…

Swim Capsule Wardrobe

Heads up: long post coming. It includes details of 3 patterns resulting in 1 suit, 1 rash guard, 2 bikini tops and 3 bikini bottoms PLUS my sewing fail and resulting shoulder injury! (all sizing details and my measurements are included at the end of the post) I had great…

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…

Langers – Lander/Ginger Mashup

After my first two pairs of Lander Pants and after seeing so many high-waisted, wide -leg, clean front pants in my Instagram feed, the idea popped into my head to mash the Lander Pants pattern and Ginger Jeans pattern together into one super pattern – Langers. My goal was to…

Closet Case – Kelly Anorak

I got rolling on this year’s make nine and haven’t wanted to stop. After the success of my Ginger Jeans, I took a quick break to make a free-form sweatshirt project and then jumped right back in with the other Closet Case pattern on my list. The Closet Case Kelly…

French Navy – Orla Dress #3

It got hot this summer. So hot that I was craving a long, light, loose-fitting maxi dress. I saw this gorgeous embroidered viscose poplin from Blackbird Fabrics and I immediately thought of making a maxi versionĀ of the Orla dress (previously made here and here). Modifying the Orla was easy. I…
