Fibre Mood Constance Overalls

Wearable toile with missing hardware. I've always loved the look of traditional overalls. I saw the Fibre Mood Constance overalls and knew I needed to make myself a pair immediately. My goal was to alter the original pattern as little as possible. I know I tend to just self-draft patterns based on my measurements. This... Continue Reading →

Fiber Mood Norma Blouse

For me, fitting shirts are just as tricky as fitting pants. I have an excellent fit for my everyday t-shirts with a modified Union St pattern, but I've struggled to get a decent fit in a woven pattern. When the Norma blouse didn't fit, instead of altering, I ended up drafting a pattern from my... Continue Reading →

Wiksten Haori House Coat

This will be a short post about my Wiksten haori since the pattern did not require extensive alterations. After my failed quilted jacket that I ended up giving to my mother, I think I might have hit gold with my haori. Materials I went kind of wild for the materials. Years ago, I made blankets...

Since 2020 is the year of stretchy pants and big sweatshirts, I figured I needed to join the trend and make myself a comfy quilted jacket too. This was a big and intimidating project for me. I don't have a lot of experience sewing jackets, and to make things even more interesting, I planned on... Continue Reading →

It's not always easy to find on their webpages, but here are a couple of links for people living in the... Continue Reading →

Megan Nielsen Jarrah Sweater

One of my first sewing projects years ago was to make a rub-off pattern of a beloved Nau wool sweatshirt that was beyond mending. The sweatshirt was basic, as are most of the Nau designs, but with really interesting, asymmetrical details. My sweatshirt had a dropped shoulder, funnel neck, and high-low hem. I wanted my...

Anna Allen Persephone Sailor Pants

Back in May of this year, we moved from a single story apartment to a 3-story townhouse. I also spent the summer getting back into shape, healing a foot/ankle injury, and in general, making health and fitness my main focus. In that time, my body has dramatically changed shape. Climbing significantly more stairs each day... Continue Reading →
