2018 In Review

It’s not quite December, but the baby is napping and I’m in the middle of French seaming an entire dress made with really slippery fabric, so it seemed that now was as good a time as any to do a 2018 roundup.  I saw this on another blog and I really wanted to do a […]

True Bias Roscoe Dress

After seeing endless True Bias posts on IG, I figured I needed to try one of their patterns for myself. The Roscoe dress and blouse appealed to me because of its versatility– I really need to start sewing more separates– and I had seen some really beautiful posts of other people’s finished Roscoes. So here’s […]

Style Arc Giselle– Take Two

I first sewed the Style Arc Giselle dress back in January of this year– unfortunately, it was HUGE and I A) didn’t make a muslin, B) wasted beautiful fabric. However, I loved the dress and was willing to print and tape together 54 pages of PDF pattern to try again.  This time, I bought another […]

Knit Wrap Dress: V8896

I had been eyeing this fabric at Joann for some time, and initially thought of  M6886.  I’m glad that I decided against horizontal stripes tight across my thighs and ass, and went with this Vogue wrap dress instead. The dress is suitable for maternity and non-maternity use, which is even better! Pattern: Vogue 8896, view A […]

Maternity Sewing: Tee Dress M6886

I know two things about ready-to-wear maternity: 1) it’s ugly and 2) it’s expensive.  I just didn’t see myself investing any kind of cash into hideous clothes that I’m only going to wear for 4-5 months (because honestly this belly started out more as a FUPA and I just made do with my regular pants […]
