I wish there were a way to get a 3D printed body form for the lower body. I’m convinced that pants are always going to require massive alterations to fit a person. After my blog post about the differences between my pattern and the True Bias Hudson pant pattern, I wanted to see how Ryan’s … More True Bias Men’s Hudson Pant
I’ve postponed this blog post for months now because I don’t know precisely what I want to convey. Drafting a pattern from a duct tape body form isn’t exactly easy-peasy, and I’ve spent months tweaking my self-drafted pattern. I’ve got no clear cut answer for how I went from a block form to a pattern … More True Bias Women’s Hudson Pant
I had this goal in 2018 to sew “date night” outfits for my husband and me. However, I could never find the time. Therefore, I’m starting 2019 by getting back on track with my sewing goals. I’ve had this ponte knit fabric in my stash for 2+ years and never knew what pattern to use. … More True Bias Lodo Dress in Ponte Knit
I struggle with summer outfits. Namely, I haven’t been able to find a style that I can wear to work. I only need to be casually dressed for work, but wearing sneakers, shorts, and a t-shirt is a bit too casual.

Last month I challenged myself with sewing a pair of Ginger skinny jeans, so this month I am tackling the super popular True Bias Lander pant! Size Based on my measurements (waist … More True Bias Lander Pant Muslin Fittings
This summer I found the perfect summer PJ set for Ryan. Now I realize the fabric does this weird visual illusion, but go with me on this. I mashed together two patterns to generate the best possible comfortable PJ set for warm summer days. For the top, I used Thread Theory’s Arrowsmith undershirt pattern, which is a free PDF pattern by the way. For the bottoms, I used True Bias’ Hudson pant pattern. Match made in heaven! … More Review of Thread Theory’s Arrowsmith Undershirt and True Bias’ Hudson Pants
This week was a good reminder of how sewing in a strange way is a really great stress reliever. I had a couple of bumps this week: FedEx temporarily lost a package of fabric for an Etsy order, my serger jammed with thread and I was told it would take 4 weeks to fix, I bought a 2nd serger, etc. I’m also dealing with some really frustrating stuff with our apartment complex and family health issues, so my patience has been really thin this week.
