Style Arc Cher Dress


Due to some efficient cutting, I found myself with a bit of Fabric Mart's black ponte fabric leftover from my Metropolitan Chimera Jacket... while the black was still threaded in my machines, I decided to make it into a quick dress!

Dude Sewing: Far Far Cardigan


This is one of my last projects of 2017, a gift for Tim. With temperature plummeting here in Vermont at that time, he needed some layers!

Dude Sewing: Bram Raglan + Beer Belly Adjustment

I made my brother a garment and it fits! I'd tried to sew him a couple things in the past, but nothing has quite worked out yet for various reasons (fabric with no recovery, poor instructions). Third time's the charm!

Hot Patterns Metropolitan Chimera Jacket

You might have seen this baby pop up on the Fabric Mart blog earlier this week... I wrote a ponte-theme post, with one garment for me and one for time. Ponte power couple?

2017: Top 5 Hits and Misses

It's that time of year again! Gillian's hosting her insightful Top 5 sewing round-up again, in which you look at what you've made over the year and take stock. 

I am going to do hits, honorable mentions, misses, an update on my 2017 sewing goals, and a few 2018 plans. I'm not sticking to 5 in all cases, because I can't follow instructions, apparently.
