Ever since I put on my first long sleeve running top with thumbholes, I've been a bit obsessed. It sure beats tugging down your sleeves to cover half your hand. And I'm not the only one, it seems. Thumbholes are popping up everywhere! pattern: Bimaa Sweater from LouBeeClothing. size: 10 ...

Jersey from #organiccottonplus and patterns from #oliverands and #kitschycoo are an unbeatable combination!

My official #shortsontheline  submission...Oliver + S Class Picnic Shorts with ruffles!
The last time I sewed Class Picnic Ruffle Shorts, BK wore a size 5. She outgrew them at least a year ago. They were always a favorite so it was time to sew up a new pair. This time with a few more modifications to make my girl happy. pattern: Oliver + S Class Picnic Shorts ...

Thanks to my fabulous in-laws we were able to spend a week at the beach with my husband's side of the family. His parents weren't able to come down until Tuesday because his father had been in the hospital with pneumonia. Luckily, my father-in-law's health improved enough that he could fly down ...

The Shandiin Tank & Tunic is now available!
I mixed and matched knits and wovens for the first 3 tops but this one is all woven. It's just as cute in one fabric as it is using prints and solids together. The pattern comes with a button front version and also a puff hem option. But it's that crescent cut-out in the back that first caught ...

I wouldn't feel right jumping in to 2015 sewing with out some kind of close to my 2014 sewing. I don't have the time (nor pictures in some cases) to devote entire posts to each of these so here's a down and dirty wrap up of 2014's projects: Hosh Pants, size 8 with yoga style waistband (the ...

We've all got that one pattern that we love to sew and for me that is the Oliver + S Sandbox Pants. I've sewn it up countless times over the years. It's a great basic pants pattern all on it's own but with a little imagination you can make pretty much any kind of pants/shorts with it.

I always look at pattern testing as an opportunity to try new fabric combinations. K has a lace back white t-shirt that she dearly loves but it was showing it's age. So, my first size 1 try was a sweetheart seamed top with lace for the upper bodice and back. Sadly, that one didn't fit K (luckily ...

My original intention was to have the entire skirt with the exception of the pockets and waistband in the green check fabric. However, despite my best efforts to match up the checks it was not looking good. Luckily, I had just enough of the solid green twill to cut out a front panel. Whew!
