When I saw this pattern, I thought to myself “Look, Morgan read my mind! She has created the most perfect pattern. She knows my heart! We are one!”
I was right! It IS the perfect pattern for me. It has all my favorite elements…a V neck, made from a knit, a contrast yoke, soft gathers at the shoulders, a shaped hem, 3/4 sleeves. The possibilities for fabric pairing are so exciting! I can make it dressy, but it is knit, so it will still be wearable. Continue reading
And I’m back! Thank you for being patient during the long pause.
I moved just about 5 weeks ago, but have struggled to get back into the sewing room to create because it is simply the last priority! I had to unpack the kitchen, the downstairs, my bedroom, the girl’s bedrooms and of course get my office set up so I can get back to work.

Who can help but be inspired by shoes? This blouse was inspired by my round toed, T-strap, stack heeled Fidji’s for Project Sewn. The Project Sewn Challenges are so fun to sew along with! Continue reading
Turns out I sew pink garments all the time! I’m entering this blouse into the sew-along on Project Sewn.
Well, I started this blouse back when I was following Seamstress Erin Bow Blouse Sew Along. It was going to be blouse number 2 in a list of 3 ideas I had. What a dreamer I am! I did not get 3 tops done that month, and then Christmas steamrolled over me and my big plans fell by the wayside. I did get to pattern test Seamstress Erin’s Presidio Purse, though. That was a blast! Continue reading
I made this chiffon number a couple of years ago, before I learned about the wealth of sewing knowledge available on sewing blogs from around the world. I didn’t know how to finish my chiffon seam allowances. And I didn’t know how to handle the slippery chiffon, making this a miracle that it even came together! I was just getting used to my rolled hem foot and that tiny rolled hem foot is tricky to master on any kind of material, but especially slippery, ravelly chiffon. Continue reading
