Tested: Itch to Stitch Orono Top

By Sarah | February 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

Friends, I have a problem. I have a gazillion pairs of leggings (can’t stop. won’t stop.), more in the works, and not nearly enough winter tops to wear them with! As much as I’d love to go around sporting hoodies all day long, they aren’t very nursing friendly (unless they have a zipper, and I’ve…

I don’t know if y’all know this about me, but I’m a researcher at heart. I LOVE nothing more than to dive into a subject, research the heck out of it, and then bore my friends and family for daaayyysss about everything I”v learned. Its also why I buy more patterns even when I have…

Fit Capsule Planning (or not….)

I’m a card carrying Type A person….except when it comes to sewing. Sure, I’m a perfectionist, and will redo that reverse coverstitch a dozen times to make sure it lines up perfectly, but apart from my maddening tendency to re-stitch seams, I’m not really much of a planner when it comes to sewing.

Face it. Sometimes you buy a pattern, and you make a few times, and you love it, and then you realize that it would be perfect, if only it had this one extra little thing. Most of the time unless you have mad illustrator skills or the time to figure out a hack, those dreams go…

Camo for a Cause…

I used to be such a girly girl…as in I would ONLY wear shades of pink and purple as a child, with the frilliest accessories possible. I cried when they fingerprinted me because I didn’t like my hands to get “dirty”, and I played with dolls until I could drive a car (in secret with…

Tested: Greenstyle Studio to Street Top

I’ve made a half dozen dolman patterns in the last couple years, and I’ve loved each more than the last. There’s something classic but stylish about a dolman, and oh, so many endless ways they can changed up to suit my whims…my sewing hacker heart is in heaven anytime a new dolman comes around. Until…

Tested: Cecilia Criss Cross Top

By Sarah | January 23, 2019 | 4 Comments

If you hang around the pattern world long enough, you start to see some consistencies in the requests for certain designs, and a relaxed fit, dolman sleeve wrap top like this one, has been one of the most requested this Fall/Winter. Since I’m slowing easing myself into wearing less fitted tops, I decided to give…
