My heart is in Havana…

I’ve spent the past couple weeks singing this song…  Now that it’s in your head too, I can show you my new Havana dress and top, from the recently released pattern by Greenstyle. The Havana is a departure from the athletic patterns that make up a large portion of the Greenstyle offerings, and despite…

Happy Jeans Dance!

I hinted at this on Instagram a few weeks ago- but I finally did it! I completed my first pair of me-made jeans, and guess what? Just like everyone said, it wasn’t all that hard. Sure, there was a bit of a learning curve, especially with the fitting, but the actual construction process was more…

Men’s and Women’s Forester Coats

Late last year, when I tested the Trailblazer collection (mens, women’s, children’s and nestledown- whew! that was quite a project, you can read about it here), Lisa hinted that there was a coat in the works, and asked if the trailblazer folks would be interested in testing it.

I’m all about the pants making these days (which is good, because my wardrobe was getting a little top heavy!), and my latest conquest is the Itch to Stitch Mountain View Pants.  Earlier this year, I decided to sew a pull on style jean, but got bogged down deliberating between the Jalie Elanore, the various…

Family Trailblazers!

You might have seen it coming….but with the release of the women’s Trailblazer and nestledown add on, I now have a whole family of matching Trailblazer vests! I’ve made matching items for mommy and me, or the kids before, but never had an opportunity to create something for everyone out of the same pattern, and…

A Vest Obsession…

I’ve been on a bit of a vest kick lately- they’re faster to sew than jackets, and offer all the warmth of a coat without all the bulk over my arms, which really annoys me when I’m trying to mom-around. When I saw the tester call for the Oakley Vest by Love Notions, I couldn’t…

Little Trailblazers! My First Adventure in Upcycling

I blogged my husband’s new Trailblazer vest (Twig and Tale Patterns) last week, and it came together to smoothly that I decided to dive into a matching pair of Children’s Trailblazer Vests for my twins, because there’s nothing cuter than a matching daddy and son picture….(unless it’s a family picture…hint hint!!). Having spent most of…
