Blue Plaid Vogue 8811
It's October!! My most favorite month of the year, and the perfect time to use this lovely plaid linen I've been saving. I purchased it from a now out-of-business fabric shop in Austin (sadly), but it has the most wonderful hand. I stitched it up using Vogu...

Liberty Moneta
I took a jaunt up to the Pacific Northwest for a family vacation last week and decided it was the perfect opportunity to sew myself another Colette Moneta. This is my third ( one and two ), although the first in a three-quarter sleeve length. I so like the ...

Polka Dot Rayon Anna Dress
Well, hello  Anna ! I'm late to join the party on this pattern, and like the Elisalex I sewed  last year, this one took me by surprise. Both of these By Hand London patterns are very different silhouettes than I usually sew, and both turned out to be quite ...

This is, unquestionably, my favorite dress that I have ever made or worn. This sensational 1950s cocktail dress is the pattern I worked on at Susan Khalje's Couture Sewing School this August. I'm too excited to say anymore, so let's just get to those photos...

Hand-Embroidered Anna Dress
