Copying a Ralph Lauren dress for my daughter!
I love sewing clothes for my daughter. She has an eye for color and a thirst for style, and has a keen eye about what looks good on her. What she doesn't have is the discretionary income to indulge all her sartorial desires. That's where I come in. She will often send me pictures of clothes she ...

Don't you need an army of these?
A sewing group I belong to does an annual gift exchange at the February meeting, and this year I stumbled across Lady Joyceley's pattern and instructions for making a Minion pincushion. In case you're not familiar with Minions, they are the adorable little yellow sidekicks from the "Despicable ...

I've reposted my popular Snuglet pattern!
When I migrated our family website to a new platform, one of the things that didn't make it across was my popular Snuglet pattern. I've had a few requests to make it available again, so here it is! Just click here to download the PDF. My only request is that you ask permission before using the ...

Cutting into my $50-per-yard fabric gives me the willies!
There's something about the thought of cutting into expensive fabric that just paralyzes you. Over the last few days I started in earnest on my dress (after all, the gala is a week away!). The first thing I did was to clear enough space on my sewing table to spread the fabric out and take a ...

Yes, you can sew a suit of armor! (Well... sort of...)
You may be familiar with Reddit, the online forum that has something for everyone (really! Check out their sewing subreddit, or the one for knitting, or the one for sushi, or the one for potato salad... you get the idea!). One of the subreddits is called Secret Santa, and they organize gift ...

I am beginning the process of making this prop for a show at our community theater.  I would love to know what you learned from the process of making the Cobra Staff and what you would change.  If you have time email me at movealotmazurs@gmail.com. THANKS and great work

This was our 13th Smithson Gala!
Here's Bob's vest and tie, ready to go. I used my regular vest pattern, with black velvet for the outside and Ambiance for the lining. The sequined lapels were added like appliques, with the outside and the fold edges bound with black velvet. This really helped it all lay flat and kept the ...

I made a barn jacket, even though I don't have a barn.
This weekend I was in Winchester, VA, at a sewing retreat organized by the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG). I've been on these retreats before, most recently last January, and really enjoy them for the burst of inspiration and productivity I get.

Winter Skirt for Diana
I am very fortunate that my lovely daughter can be patient when it comes to waiting for me to finish a project for her. Case in point: I made this skirt muslin for her last year, but dragged my feet on making a wearable skirt. She encouraged me to make this...
