summer sewing

I finally sewed something for myself. And I used a legit pattern. Ellie was kind enough to loan me the McCalls flat front shorts, pattern M5391. I don’t have many shorts in my wardrobe, mainly because I used to work in an office all summer long. When I made clothing purchases, I often asked myself […]

Pama T-Shirt Underwear

Does anyone else have an aversion to the word ‘panties’? I just don’t like saying it or typing it. . . hence the word ‘underwear’ being used throughout this post even though I’m really talking about panties. Anyways. . . I have been wanting to try my hand at making t-shirt underwear for a very […]

The Krista Apron

I took advantage of Habitual’s Free Simple Sundress Pattern to create this cute little dress. It was a quick little sew […]

A Sewing Saturday (and Sunday)

I haven’t sewn anything since Jude’s Kimono two days before he was born. That’s about 2 months now. Quite sad if you ask me. Well, we had another SEWcial this past Saturday, Jason and Jude had a ‘Daddy Day’ and I got to sew with the ladies! I took this opportunity to catch up on […]
