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…

A new Chevron Tank (and freezing temps!)

  I have a confession to make: I’m not doing very well at coordinating my fit Capsule. Sure, I’ve made about 8 pieces of clothing for the Capsule at this point, but with the exception of the matching bra/leggings sets, nothing coordinates with each other! I swear that after today, I’ll try to concentrate on…

Tutorial: Perfect Knit Binding Every Time!

So I was really excited to see it finally come…

Adding a Back Zipper Pocket to Leggings

I promised this tutorial last week, when I made the second part of my Fit Capsule (see that post here) and here it is! I learned the hard way during my last leggings modification that if I wait too long to explain it- I forget how I did it, so I knew I had to…

Cozy Hoodies for Cool-(ish) Weather!

How are the holidays shaping up around your place? We have been enjoying our travels, spending Thanksgiving in Phoenix with friends before heading back to Southern California for Christmas. We have always missed that “neighborhood” feeling at home, with kids running around and playing together, but we sure have found it down here amidst the…

In the Running…a tale of two Athletic Skirts!

Hello sewing friends! I hope this post finds you well, and weathering current events with, if not aplomb, at least a sense of humor. For this, I’m ever grateful to my children, who always seem able to make me laugh at the craziest of moments, which is certainly how I’d describe life right now, as…
