Ringing in #BraAugust!

  I don’t keep up with social media quite as much as I used to (trying to spend a little more time staying grounded in the present, these days), but I was really looking forward to BraAugust this year as a time to learn some new skills, and motivate myself to sew a few new…

Fall Style: Wine & Lace

I’m back home, and busy working on blog posts to document the last legs of our trip, but in the meantime, I took advantage of all the extra SPACE (nothing like going from 200 square feet to 2600 to give you an appreciation for the ability to spread out!) and whipped up a new athletic…

If you haven’t already figured this out based on the sheer number of athletic posts on my blog, I wear leggings alot. I never thought I’d be on the #leggingsarerealpants team, but here I am, wearing them as a main staple for my very active life. I’m currently training for a half/full marathon (haven’t decided…

Tested: Clara Wrap Top

I’ve been wanting to try a little wrap top for ages, but couldn’t find the right pattern. Years ago, I tried the Papercut Coppelia wrap top, and had a few serious fitting issues that I was unable to resolve at the time, being a beginner sewist. So, when Greenstyle, one of my favorite pattern companies,…

Lightening things up for Spring!

The weather forecast FINALLY shows a week of sunshine around here, and if I was like any normal person, I’d be breaking out last year’s capris and tanks. Of course, as my friends would tell you, I’m pretty far from “normal”- so naturally my response is to make new things for Spring instead! I started with…

Tutorial: Cutting & Sewing Stripes for a Perfect Finish

Confession Time: I LOVE wearing stripes. They’re a great way to add visual interest, a second (or third, or fourth) color to a basic wardrobe staple, and can be sewn in so many different ways (color-blocked, on the bias, etc.). BUT, ( and this is a big but)….I haven’t always loved sewing them. My perfectionist…
