Another tennis dress : Jalie Anne Marie


When I decided to get into tennis by joining a city run evening class, I would have never thought I’d stick with it for almost two years and join a women’s USTA league. I may only be playing at the 3.o level, the beginning level for competitive tournaments, but I’m totally excited and also a […]

McCall’s 7386


I loved the look of the skirt on the model of the recent release from the McCall’s Learn To Sew For Fun pattern line, M7386. I like maxi skirts and dresses but don’t wear the ones I have very often, so I decided to make the shorter view of the skirt, view C. Maybe all […]

A new TNT pattern! McCall’s 7313


Easy, fast, and a cute basic summer dress. I found it! McCall’s 7313 is a Learn To Sew For Fun pattern, but don’t let that keep you more experienced seamstresses from trying it. It’s well drafted. Sometimes simple and easy is just what the doctor ordered. Making simple knits is what I’m all about lately. […]

Palm leaf swimsuit: Butterick 4526


It was about time I made myself a basic swimsuit. After making Gigi’s suit recently, I was in a bathing suit making mood. This suit is wearable but it’s really a working muslin, since it needs some tweaks to the fit next time. I used an interesting panel print I found downtown and lined it […]

McCall’s 6754 Floral fit and flare


Hello! So this is my second version of McCall’s 6754. I’ve made some changes to the pattern to make it more user friendly. While I loved all the interesting seams, I did feel like the design was specific to using with a striped knit, as you can see in the pattern photo below. All those […]

Half Linen Curtains for A Farmhouse Bathroom


It took over a year to finish our master bathroom installation and it’s finally done! All it needed were some window coverings so I sewed up some simple linen cafe curtains this past week. This was the room before we turned it into our bathroom off of our master bedroom. It needs to be entered […]

McCall’s 6848 silk summer shorts pajama


McCall’s 6848 in silk. View C, size small. I cut out the fabric for these pajamas back in May before my sewing hiatus. I finally sewed these up and they’re the first thing I’ve sewn for myself since early May. That’s the longest I’ve gone without sewing for myself in 6 years! These were an […]

Sewing a French Bustle or Underbustle


I finished the dress with three days to spare and all went well at the wedding. I had packed my needle and thread just to make sure I could remedy any mishaps that might occur at the wedding, but it was smooth sailing! One couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting for a reception […]
