When you write a post about how to whizz through #v1493, completely disregard your own advice, bias bind seams, and add a lining to boot. #stubborn #voguepatterns #silk #brocade #sewinglove
What I did last weekend: smiled my face off singing with the splendiferous Losers Lounge 💕 tribute to Burt Bacharach 💕 This crew is the BOMB. (Oh and yes I made my dress.)

I might have had some gin last night and made an insane list of sewist holiday gifts. 🍸😬It’s up on the blog! Link in profile. Warning: it’s crazy.

I thought it worth mentioning...even if you are so lucky to live in a city (like ❤️ New York ❤️) where you personally feel that your representatives and senators agree with you on issues, it’s still 100% worth it to ...
I wore a sleeveless maxi dress today. And it was *almost* warm enough to strut around in this strappy maxi. But probably better that I view it from the September pages of @w42st magazine ...for now. #alltemperaturecloset 😳👗Thanks for the ...

Our friend the chef draped this wax print on thanksgiving eve. First time ever. Now I just gotta figure out how to get it off the form and sew it (and, umm, add a back) 🤔

I have just informed Rob I will be making a Christmas ornament dress. He is sufficiently concerned. #jinglebells #partydress #brocade
Hive Mind Alert! This directional, metallic chenille is proving to be a head scratcher. Both the white stripes AND the chocolate shapes run on a very slight bias (pic taken on the cross grain, you can’t tell by a pic ...
Does it count as stash if you sew it the minute you walk in the door?

I’d wear a dress #everyday if I could. But considering the current🌬❄️I guess I’ll put sleeves on this one 😳

I found this gorgeous sourè bag at one of my favorite southern vintage stores and it was a BARGAIN. It’s also one of the few good reasons for colder weather. Not sewing related, but certainly handiwork a sewist can appreciate!

For this #originstory, I have no choice but to give you a deep cut pic! This draped number is my ode to Sal Romano (Mad Men) for my column at “The Sew Weekly.” I’ve talked about my blog & sewing ...
I added a whopping NINE INCHES of waistband to these jersey track pants, because I wanted them high waisted. 😂They turned out so high, they’re a halter jumpsuit! (And they still double as low waist pants, if you fold the ...
